    I am too travelling alone and trying to work out if it is better to bring just cash or if I can pay by card in most places like ar the Aro'a beach bar etc? Do the rooms have a safe? Many thanks!

    No cash required at Aro'a as you can either charge back to your room or pay with card later. This place is extremely safe and in my 8 years of staying have never had a problem.
