We would like to advise that you consider taking a taxi from the airport to our location.
Reason: From past experiences we found this to be the most favourable and easiest approach for our guest and in this way you eliminate conflicts between guest and taxi drivers. Most times the flights do not run to schedule, sometimes they are to early or to late, in these instances the drivers are upset with us. In other instances there are times that the drivers don't run to schedule then you risk starting your vacation in a bad way. Transportation is always accessible outside the airport.
