Hey guys, I'm in the beginning of acquiring a timeshare at the Harborside starting on the 20th week, so mid May. I've been to the Bahamas in September and October with luck of not getting a hurricane or rain, May is a new travel time for me and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in the Bahamas around this time of year? What weather to expect? Also will be looking for advice on staying in full kitchen as opposed to being cooked for. Places to shop? Transporting cookware? Any and all advice to make the first trip out there less of a beginner's disaster is appreciated.

Can't give you any anecdotal info, but this average weather report may help:

They have cookware in the villa. They had one frying pan in the master suite so I went in the lockoff part to get another one since we were having pancakes and bacon. Had food delivered from FoodStore2Go but they have a grocery shuttle from the resort too. I have been to harborside in Oct and July, both great weather. I remember a previous discussion on TUG when a member said May was her favorite. Weather was warm enough for ocean and crowds were low because school is in session.

May is a little warmer than Oct. without the wind ....for a couple one bedroom cookware and mini kitchen is enough.. if more than 2 people then you need bigger kitchen and more room...
Getting groceries is no big deal many choices ..stop on way from airport ....let Foodstore2go deliver... wait for bus at Harborside take you the next morning or just let a taxi take you and wait on you ...

The weather is nice in May. Early May is a quiet time, but late May can be HORRIBLE! Once the college kids get out of school Atlantis becomes a spring break mess all over again, until these kids get home to their summer jobs. I get tired of the lifeguards having to close a pool because some drunken moron puked in it.
