Dear TA fellows - I'll be in Zanzibar for three days mid-November post-Tanzania safari and post-Rwanda gorilla viewing. I'm of a certain age and from San Francisco; I melt in especially hot weather. I'm looking for a nice hotel near a beach with the option of snorkeling reasonably nearby where I'd be comfortable on my own. Our tour operator has suggester Matemwe Beach Village. It does sound lovely but I understand it doesn't have AC. I have read here the problems with AC, in that the room has to be closed up for it to work, and how the ocean breezes can cool things down. My budget can handle a bit more than the MBV is charging. While I love good food, comfort and relaxing is more of a priority for these three days.
thanks so much for your help
