Sorry I missed this... got most of it covered in emails.
About getting around on the island... the shuttle stops periodically right outside the resort. (someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think its every 15 minutes). Its a busy stretch of highway... when we were there, we had a rental car and didnt have any real problems with parking (we went in knowing parking was a pain, so we kinda knew the deal with the rental). We used a cab on nights we both wanted to drink and a cab for 2 from the resort to mallory square was around $10. (prices for cabs go up for the amount of people over 4). Parking is $1.00/hour.... Id make sure you kept the meter plugged, because we saw MANY parking tickets on other people's cars. Not sure how much the ticket is (we never got one), but I can imagine with the cost of the meters, its a nice chunk of change.
Other than the location, you'll love this resort (and even the location wasnt as bad as what I thought it would be). I'll get the pictures to you in a couple days.
