          We have been to Zanzibar before and we know it is going to be very hot. I noticed a review by somebody complaining of lack of umbrellas/shade making it difficult to use the sunbeds for any length of time ? We like to laze about on holiday, can you comment on this ? Also what sort of prices are drinks, just as a guide ? Thanks Paul
