I went in August last year and it was wonderful!!!
We Had morning showers some days and now and again it would rain for 10-20 minutes but then it would pass. Besides, you're wearing your bathing suit most of the day so the rain is no biggy.

The worst part is that while we were on the dock to board the boat to the seaplane, we got hit with a 10 minute tropical storm. I have never been more drenched in my life! We were pelted with huge pieces of hail and it rained on us so much that I had water pouring out of my shoes since they were overflowing. We had no time or place to shower and change so until we got to the lounge at the airport, we were wearing wet, cold, clothing.

I would not hesitate to go back anytime of year!

Probably. It's pay 2 stay 3. I wonder if people who didn't book the sanctuary villa will be canceled as well.

In Vietnam during monsoon season the hotel had nice umbrellas all over to borrow. I’m sure the st Regis has as well.

The funny part is if you are on your honeymoon you should hope for rain. Not because of the first thing that comes to your dirty mind but it is related.  :)

We pray for rain in the winter, not the summer.

The issue with rain and subpar weather isn't out of fear of being wet.

The issue, rather, is that cloudy, rainy, non-ideal weather zaps the color from the entire backdrop -- as though someone pulled the plug out of the socket -- rendering MLE as though it were Atlantic Beach.  Shame to travel so far when you could just walked the needle-ridden beach of NYC.

For me one of the main reasons going to MLE is the flights. DW and I have flown many times in what I call "fake F" so it will ne nice to fly "real F". As far as fun in the sun, I have done that so many times I can't remember.
