I would book soon it`s only 6 mnths till you go....as far as July being a rainy month..not normally but it is a tropical climate so anything is possible but I would say more than likely the rain will be short sharp showers and the odd thunderstorm. I wouldn`t concern yourself at all

Happy travels

I tend to boook things once i decide where im going (6-8months before leaving) mainly because the hotels are happy to offer super early bird specials, we get a good deal and pay off ourholiday in small chuncks :)

July is one of the best month as the weather are nice and warm not overly hot with occasional short sharps of rains as the norm for tropicals. July is the start of high season as is coincides with Australian school holiday.

We normally book as soon as we know the dates 6-9 months ahead. Some hotel do offers early birds.

As you want to stay at the Grand Centara, I would say book as soon as you are able. As early as possible, as not only does this holiday get booked up really quickely, and it is the Australian school holidays, but it is also a popular month for europeans, and the UK schools are breaking up for the long summer UK school holidays.

We are also in the 6-9 month gang!
