Hi Mrs Clooney,
We moved into our property in late October on Playa Golf III. The moving in went well but as you have experienced the threat of burglary is always on our minds.
When we were there a couple on the next road were burgled, the crooks ripped off the grill on the downstairs window and searched the whole house. They took nothing in the end but the trauma of the theft spoiled what should have been a pleasant though stressful experience.
All I can say is; change all your locks, install key operated window locks, secure shutters internally (you will find a picture of some shutter clips on the shared photos page under Playa Golf III), have fitted security grills on doors and windows, get a monitored alarm fitted.
You would probably do this in the UK, so why not in Spain.
Sadly there are some undesirable Brits in Spain as well as other nationalities, and no doubt some of them will be on Playa Golf (ask the security man).
But at the end of the day you will find this sort of thing happens all over the world, the benefits of were we are, are; the residents are nice and friendly, there’s sun, sea, sand, sangria and a healthy lifestyle, so if you can enjoy your new home.
