Hello we fly out to ICD 26th Nov til 10th Dec we never usually travel this time of year but this year it will be my husbands special birthday and a special wedding anniversary so we have decided the ICD to celebrate, So just a few question..

Is it a quieter time of year to visit or is it one of the busier times

Is there much rainfall this time of year

Do they put a Christmas tree up that early so it feels like Christmas

Do ICD do Birthday cakes would like to surprise Hubbie

Thankyou all in advance for responses :-)

That is a very nice time of year to visit. Yes it is the very beginning of "tourist season" but the bigger crowds don't arrive till the end of December.

It is during our "rainy" season but that does not mean rain all the time, just an increase in the chance of showers sometime during the day (usually early morning or early evening). Rarely you will have a day or two or rain. You should have much more sun than ran so pack lots of sunscreen as it is expensive here and you will need it. You can check this tread: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g147290-i64-k21626…

to see what the weather has been on a daily basis for the last few years.

The tree most likely the tree and decorations will be up or go up during your stay.

Can't comment on the cake but I am sure if you talk to the kitchen manager when you get there something can be arranged.

Enjoy your trip and if you have not been here before do spend a day or two exploring the area

Birthday cakes are sent to your room with note from Management.

Sometimes birthday cakes are presented to guests at the evening buffet with staff dimming the lights and singing 'Happy Birthday' at the table.

All arrangements can be made with Guest Services.

They also do Chocolates and Champagne, as i did this for my wife on our wedding anniversary last year.

FYI the chocolates were handmade and my wife said they were delicious..

Will try and upload a pic of them for you.

The reception desk was very helpful and they were in place on time and place requested.

Hope this helps
