Best private transfer service to use?

We would like to know if anyone has experience using private transport services from the airport to Ocean Blue? It would be nice to have a cold beer on the way and stop to purchase some wine for our stay. What transport service should we use? Where is the best place to stop for wine? What should we expect to pay for such a service? There will be four of us. Thanks.

We have been to Punta Cana many times and like many other have used IBK in the past. June of 2013 we used Caribbean Dream for the private transfers (Airport to Hotel; Hotel to Airport) and used Gobecon for the WiFi; both services were great!!

You can request refreshments be waiting for you in the transfer as well as stopping at the local store for other refreshments.

We use IBK Servicious as well, and have them booked again for April!

Very reliable, and the beers you can pre-order are ICE COLD!!! LOL

Will the drivers stop at a small grocery store so we could purchase a few things for our room? Do they charge extra?

laurag35,

Private drivers will stop a local store to pick up "refreshments" for you - just make the arrangements in advance. In your case, where you may " purchase a few things for our room" it is best that you confirm any possible additional charges for any extended shopping.

Hope this does assist you.

Tootsies,

As an alternative, I highly recommend a private driver named Franklin Rijio. Franklin works for the largest taxi company in Punta Cana - very reliable - if schedules conflict, he will easily arrange an alternative driver for you - very knowledgeable. Fluent in English, Spanish, French & some German. His rates are the same as those listed at the airport.

His direct number is 809.710.2708 and his email address is:

Franklinrijo1966@gmail.com

If you wish to have a few “cold ones” on your way to the resort, just mention this to Franklin and he will arrange this for you.

Have a wonderful vacation in Punta Cana.

John

hlywud, I looked at the IBK website and it seems slightly suspect, and somewhat unprofessional, but you are the PC expert. What to you know about DAT Dominican Airport Transfers? I was about to book with them based purely on the professionalism of their site, their rating with the Better Business Bureau, and price that seems to be in line with most others.
