In 12 trips to the Phils totaling about 18 months, I've never had anything stolen. I do know of 2 occasions bungalows were broken into, one was a inside job the other unknown. Once on Siargao island I was in a place without an inside slide bolt so I put a very heavy footstool against the door, in the morning it was pushed about 25cm from the door so someone did try but left before taking anything. I now take a small portable slide bolt that I can fit on most doors.
My point is practice basic security, the Philippines is no more likely than any other place.
