When to go November to March is the ideal time to visit weatherwise. The very popular peak summer season from Christmas to mid-February gets booked up well in advance so best to plan early. During this period the whole place comes alive and there is a great party atmosphere. It is worth bearing in mind however that during the quieter season - including November and March, many of the area's bars and restaurants are closed which does tend to restrict eating options to your hotel.
