Peeping Tom Mexico Style

peeping tomIt seems that maintenance work at the all-inclusive Mexican resort – the  Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya resort near Playa del Carmen, involves more than painting and patching.  It also seems to have involved the creation of a peep  hole into the adjoining guest bathroom.   This was discovered recently by an Ontario couple as reported on Huffington Post.

“Traccitto discovered a maintenance room that shared a wall with the bathroom of the suite. A hole concealed behind the glazed glass shower console allowed a clear view of the bathroom.”  (Read the full article here Article:

I wonder how many couples have been spied on and how many of the maintenance workers actually knew about this.  Makes you wonder if other maintenance people have thought of this at other hotels.  Usual concerns when picking the right hotel revolve around cleanliness, bed bugs, food quality and location.

So next time you check into a hotel it might be a good idea to ask that you don’t have the guest room right next door to the maintenance room otherwise you could have a complete stranger checking out your plumbing.

      1. Yes cleanliness is top of my priority too. In India sometimes we travel off the beaten track in little places which have not heard of it, it seems. We travel with our own sheets and towels and loads of dettol wipes to wipe every surface I can find. I love the cleanliness in European hotels though.


  1. That’s good advice. India is on my bucket list but I have heard that outside of the 4 and 5 star hotels there can be real challenges. Good idea with your own sheets and dettol wipes.
