Fridge and AC worked great. Fridge has a little freezer area you can freeze a bottle of water for ice. It does have a safe, but not large...

The hotel is just on the water line. It offers a lot of activities and therefore quite noisy. Rooms are actually small flats, very spacious, old style design. Poor maintenance: leaks here and there, no hot water for morning shower. Breakfast buffet is very rich.
