    How reliable is the wife there? Is the pubic area loud? Can one be able to have a decent phone conversation in public are or will there just be too much jungle noise in the background? Is there a safe in the room or a way to have my personal belongings (s.a passport) kept with someone in front desk while I am out and about? Thanks
