Ice in drinks

Is it safe to have ice in drinks from the beach shacks or hotels? Have read conflicting reports so just wanted some advice. 2 more sleeps :-)

Ok mixed bag of opinions there so will ask and yes fingers crossed we can get some alcohol to put it in as we arrive during the dry days. Does that rule apply to hotels as well?

The big lumps of ice are used to keep food cold, not to be broken up into your drinks. If in doubt, look at the ice cubes themselves. If they are regular moulded shapes, they should be safe. Irregular ice bergs should be avoided just in case.

A G&T without ice is like Tom without Jerry!

I've been having ice in my drinks in Goa since 1995 and never had a problem yet, as far as I'm aware of course.

But, to be ultra safe just drink bottled water, from the bottle, not from a glass.
