          Good day, We are planning to visit this resort in May for 9 days and the forecast is Tstorm, thunderstorms all 9 days ((( Just wondering what is like to experience such a bad weather on the small island? Can you expect this to be few hours raining or all day raining? does it happen anytime or mostly at night? What would guests tend to do in such weather conditions? Snorkeling and fishing tours are subject to weather condition, aren't they? Can the weather be different at male and your island or it pretty much the same? Thank you for your time to reply. Kind regards, Julia
