Would it be cheaper to get a taxi or a shuttle from the airport to the Hilton? Thanks.

Just get a taxi. You can easily get a taxi right outside the arrivals hall upon exiting. Just speak to the dispatcher and he will arrange a taxi for you. Registered taxis of all types will be there. The fare to Hilton Barbados will be $42 BBD, however, should you require a van due to excess luggage, the fare will be 1.5 times the cost = $63 BBD. Do ensure you are quoted either BBD or USD and that the price is given before you leave. 1 USD = 2 BBD

Also note, make sure you speak to an Official GAIA Inc Taxi Dispatcher....they will be wearing uniform and ID. These are the only persons who should be arranging journeys for arriving passengers via the several Authorised Airport Taxis. There are a few unscrupulous individuals called "snatchers" who like to lure visitors across the car park to their taxis and charge them higher rates and additional fees for air conditioning etc. Please take note of this.

Have a great time in Barbados!

Not sure what kind of shuttle you mean. I'm not sure if the Hilton runs its own shuttle but if it is organising transfers it's is highly likely they will be more expensive than a taxi from the airport. As far as I am aware there is no low cost Hilton shuttle bus in Barbados in the same way that there are here in the UK and I guess in the US too.
