If you mean Sun Island, I posted this a couple of days ago.

"We went to Sun Island in July 2003 and the weather is fine. It does rain sometimes and we had 2-3 days of overcast weahter in 2 weeks. It doesn't matter though because it is always hot and when it does rain it is over within an hour. Sometimes it is nice because it can get very warm out there.

A tip for you, contact the resort directly before you go and upgrade to a water bungalow, it is much cheaper than going through a UK travel agent and when you get there you will be in the best accomadation dining in a separate restaurant for water bungalow guests only. Also there are no mozzies out at sea and because the island is so large it does not get sprayed so mozzies can be a problem on land. We upgraded when we got there and it costs us $29 per night, the UK travel agent wanted $180 per night. "

My wife and I went to Sun Island in April last year and we had a great time there. I have posted a trip report with pictures on my homepage http://gardkarlsen.com. Maybe you can find some useful information there :-)
