Hairdryers at Sun island


Going to Sun Island on 18 June, I've been reading some great reviews ant just can't wait to get there!!

Couple of questions if anyone can help:

Might sound trivial, but are the hairdryers at Sun Island any good, or should I bring my own?

Also will I need insect repellant - mozzies do seem to like me.

And probably the two most FAQ's:

Which are the best super deluxe rooms, and are there any I should stay away from


It won't rain TOO much will it?

Really appreciate any tips info on helping us make the most of our trip.

packing a hairdryer just adds to what you have to take.The one in the room is ok says my wife.

take a mozzie plug in for your room and make sure the lights are off before opening the door. They spray the island daily but avoid smellies and use something like deet or autan and you will be just fine.

rain? nahhh its sun island.

All the rooms are ok , ive never been dissa over 4 trips

another tip re mozzies - try and get a second key for the room, they are card one which operate the electrics and then as suggested switch off lights but keep AC on - the little buggers dont like the Cold AC -

Are the outside showers an issue with the mozzies?
