'Whatever you say about the parents, the norm at that resort was to allow children to sleep in rooms with the doors unlocked. It was the reason people went, because they offered a family-friendly service'.

I'm not sure how unlocked doors = family friendly?

Perhaps it's the patio doors that are being referred to here, in which case, I guess leaving them unlocked would mean that if guests left their children home alone they could nip in from the back and check on them without having to walk all the way round to the front door. But that is surely a personal choice and could be made wherever one left one's children. I could leave my child home alone and the door unlocked so that it's easier for me when I get home from the pub to walk straight into the house without having to fish around for my key. Presumably this is me engaging in 'family friendly' practice?

I just left a comment, had to...

No, I haven't changed what I would do with my children on holiday, simply because I would never leave young children in an unlocked apartment to go drinking with my friends in the first place...

How did the writer determine it was "the norm at that resort"? I don't recall even the other members of the group saying they left doors unlocked. In fact IIRC there are statements saying the reverse.

Yep - that's what I was wondering.... how does the writer know what was the norm. And yes, I agree, the other members of the pact reckoned they always locked everything.
