Extra security Floris Suite Hotel after robbery
WILLEMSTAD - The Floris Suite Hotel has tightened security after the robbery last Sunday. Then two men had managed to get in through the back entrance and then to overpower the receptionist at the front desk.
They took the cash drawer and went off with it, reportedly on a scooter. The two both wore helmets and were dressed identically.
General manager of the hotel Frank Holslag said to that at the time of the robbery there was not a whole lot of cash at the front desk. Though the amount was not worth it, the staff was really traumatized after that experience.
Lisa Dindial, CEO of the Curaçao Hotel and Tourism Association (CHATA), has said in a written response to find the robbery disturbing.
