This service is a great way to get around the island. But expect to be bounced around and fear for the integrity of the bus. Also, don't expect the bus to be on time.....they run on island time.

Great way to get around the island, this bus stops where you want it too. Only down side is it can sometimes be a little late but all in all easy and cheap way to get around :)

Drivers seemed to have serious personality disorders or really hated their job. One who seemed quite congenial was rather rude to other people some days. Another seemed to have a serious chip on his shoulder. One day happy and congenial, the next surly. It marred...More

All resort have arrangements for airport transfers. Check with the transport desks outside the baggage hall while you are serenaded by the old guy on the ukelele.
