    I solo... should I take Depalm to hotel?

    I'm arriving on Sunday...and it's just me so is it best to take Depalm bus to the marriot surf?
    Their website says it $20.50 ROUNDTRIP, which implies to me that they'll pick me up at the end of my vacation too. $10.25 each way. True?

    I been reading some very negetive reviews of Depalm (most about the unrealiablity of them picking up on time, if at all.) Anyone here used them before?

    Also how are they for the Island Tour with Snuba...thinking of doing that on Tuesday (when there aren't any cruiseship in port)? Is the price worth it?

    I agree....we use Bully everywhere we go.

    If for some reason he is unavailable....I would find a taxi at the airport. A taxi would cost more....but you come and go on your own schedule versus waiting for the DePalm bus..

    a cab is $25 + tip. not much more. but at least you get privacy. and you don't get delayed waiting in the bus until everyone is on board and then wait it out until its finally at your hotel after dropping off countless others.

    We used Depalm(2 times) to pick us up and return us for departure. It was okay but had to stop at all the resorts until they got to yours. I would now use a taxi might be a little more money but I don't think much. We'll be staying at the Surf Club this year and will be taking a taxi to Surf Club no Depalm. If you use Depalm make sure they know you will be departing with them I think a day ahead notice. CAuse they don't pick up if you don't call...

    I travel single too. depalm does everything well and have used them many times. your trip from the airport willm take about an hour because your the last dropoff. you'll be given a return voucher but you must notify them the day before you leave as to time of departure. there's a depalm desk at the hotel and is usually manned in the mornings. you'll be the 1st picked up on your return. you can't book at the airport and have to advance on line. a taxi with tip will be about $60 with tip. you might be lucky and find someone to share a cab but that's iffy.

    Are the cab fares posted online anywhere? Like what they have in the taxi?

    I'll check on their website, but does anyone know now if we can just use De Palm bus one way (from airport)?

    Thanks,
