Private Transfer / Cab / Big Bus transfer

Hi, We are traveling in June...wondering what everyone's opinion of transfers are from airport to hotel and back. We are coming for a long weekend, so I am thinking private transfer to get ourselves to hotel quickly. Any recommendations on who to use, anyone know costs? Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

I would opt out of a bus transfer and step outside of the airport and jump into a cab. There will be plenty of them waiting there. The problem with the bus transfer is that you have to wait for everyone else on the bus to be dropped off, which prevents getting to the hotel quicker and having that first drink or stepping onto the beach! :)

Cost of cab depends on where you are staying.

I agree with a cab. There are many and its about $16.00-$21.00 to go to Eagle or Palm beach area.

Definitely a cab. They are easy, fast, and cost less than most transfers since the bus transfers charge per person, but the cab is a flat rate for up to 5 people.
