    To anybody there since the building work started (this month), has it been loud? Are they doing anything to make it better/can you move to another resort with the same company? They're selling it as a jungle beach resort, so I expect nothing but wildlife and water sounds. What is the weather like in May, is there any sun at all or just clouds and rain? Please only answer if you've been in May or know what it's actually like. In my experience all over the world weather averages in countries like this are never accurate.
