It's better to take cash and change it at the bank. Hotels take debit cards but not sure about the restaurants as we always pay in Egyptian

cash machines are available at the hotels but can be predictable if working or not

In my opinin yes and change little and often coz you will find you need little money when AI unless you plan to do excursions...

Be aware their currency is filthy and responsible for many bugs....Get some germicidal hand wash and use it often...
