          Hi, we are coming to stay in June and we've read that we need to make sure our room is locked at all times as the Monkeys have learned how to undo doors and windows and can ransack rooms if they can gain access. We may want to spend some time relaxing by the pool and wondered what happens with things like Cameras, iPods, Sunscreen etc. That we might want to take to the pool with us? Are the monkeys likely to pay a visit and 'steal' our belongings from the pool side whilst we are taking a dip?
