Shuttle Service/Taxis from Hilton to Ginger Restaurant??

We are going to be staying at the Hilton for a week, and would like to get out of the resort for a couple of evenings. I've read that Ginger in Playa Hermosa is now offering a shuttle service. Does anyone know how it works? Is it easy to get taxis in that area?

Here it is! http://www.gingercostarica.com/

The site says they have a "new taxi service" so you should email them and ask about it.

Also, the reception office in the Hilton can easily call an official taxi for you if it ends up being more convenient at the time. The Hilton Papagayo is not far from Ginger in Hermosa.

Great restaurant! Enjoy!

Ginger Restaurant is now providing a free shuttle service to guests staying at the Hilton Papagayo Resort and at the Occidental Gran Papagayo.

Pickups for the first dinner seating are at the reception of the Hilton Papagayo and the main gate of the Occidental Gran Papagayo at 6:30 pm and 6:40 pm, respectively. The driver brings you back to your hotel at 8:30 and 8:40, when there is a pickup for the second seating. The driver brings the second seating back to their hotels by 10:30.

As for taxis in Playa Hermosa, the official 'Red' taxi service is good. Their phone number is 8860-3055. The taxi tends to go home around 8 pm, though, so then you have to get a taxi from Playas del Coco, and they will charge you the fare to come to where you are for the pickup, as well as the fare to go to your destination, so it gets a little pricey!

Muy bien, excellente!

That is a great service! I'm sure it's bringing in a lot more customers, even though the place is full every time I've ever been there!

The menu is all tapas style, but Asian fusion, not Spanish. They are appetizer sized portions, but you can get everything....fish, shrimp, steak, salads, potato dishes....you make your own meal the way YOU want it. The menu is online at GingerCostaRica.com, and all the prices are there. Check out the reviews on TA.

There have been issues with the security not letting the shuttle into the Occidental property, so please make sure you let the reception people know that you're waiting for the Ginger shuttle, or we may not be able to get to you!
