Help- Taxi or Shuttle- going to Ocean Blue

Okay, so far, I cant decide... People have taken the shuttle which is about $25 and seems safe. Or taxi, which people say is faster and about the same cost... what have you previous travels done or recommend?

Plus, those who went to Ocean Blue... How much did you tip in a week at the hotel for services? If tipping is included in the package do you still tip?

We're heading to Ocean Blue too and will probably opt for the taxi instead of the shuttle. It seems that no matter where I stay, my stop always ends up being the last one that the shuttle driver makes. Things that make you go HMmmmm...

As far as tipping at all inclusives ...we've found that if we tip for cocktails and meals that we get better and more attentive service throughout our stay. We usually leave the maid a tip at or near the end of our stay instead of daily.

I agree with Kimmq007, we always end up being dropped off last and spent 1 or more hours just waiting to get to our hotel. Plus if you ride the shuttle there is always a rush at the check-in counter. Enjoy your trip!! :>
