Beira Mar,robbery

Anyone thinking of staying at the Beira Mar in future ,DO NOT use hotel security boxes in reception. Last night they were ALL broken into and everything stolen,money,passports jewelery etc.Some people are meant to be flying home in next few days and have no passports. Reception was broken into while reception staff slept in the reception area!!!!!!!!! There is lots of very irate visitors here understandably. My family was lucky as we dont use the boxes.

No there were lots of comments from people implying things like this don't happen in Goa, they do over 12 years ago it happen in the Santiago hotel all the safes were broken into, sadly then no one got refunded their money or things.

I don't think people implied things like this didn't happen in Goa - more shock that it DID happen - at least that's true about this specific thread.

We arrived at beira mar 1st feb 2,30 am to a dump of a room too tired to moan at time went to reception next morning to see rep to change room and ask for safety deposit box told none avaiable ,we moved out within a couple of hours, friends of ours arrived a week later and had same problem took 3 days to sort one out, you cannot even secure the room with your own padlock because the fittings were broken, the general opinion of local bar owners etc that it was an inside job, i certainly would not dream of booking this place again.
