Absolutely no one can guarantee sunshine and blue skies ANY month of the year. If they could the area would be called a desert. :-)

6 visits in September, again this year, great time to go... can't predict weather but it's the tropics and it changes in minutes... could be a quick downpour at the resort next to you while your enjoying the sun...

Usually it rains through the night 4/5am or so and by 8am the ground is already drying.

Go enjoy!

I will be at the Royalton in sept, yes as with this time of year there may be rain, but the norm would be a quick down pour here and there or nothing at all. A nice time to be at the resorts with lower occupancy levels also. Been many times in sept. Worst I've ever experienced was at the Melia in 2008 where a tail end of a tropical storm passed and had 2 days of non stop rain, but 2 days of 14 isn't bad and hey your still on holiday in a beautiful place. And there is still lots to do!!!

September is indeed peak Atlantic Hurricane season. And while no one can predict if a tropical storm will strike the region during your upcoming stay, the past statistics are in your favor for an uneventful time so no worries!
