The fridge is powered by solar and generator. It can make small quantitites of ice but we recommend you bring drinking ice and large blocks of ice for your cool boxes and your drinks.
If there is cloudy weather the solar will not be strong enough to power the freezer for long. Try not to stress the fridge freezer by opening frequently. Keep the fridge for food.
We recommend keeping ALL your drinks with large blocks of ice in the cold box-on-wheels located under the bar.
For stays over 2 days we recommend ONE coldbox containing ice blocks is brought and used to top up the drinks cooler as required.
