Four couples about to set sail on Carnival's Southern Caribbean cruise. Looked into shuttle services...forget it. Exiting the airport, approached the driver of a 10 passenger Ford F350 van. $35 for all of us. Shuttle service:$90. 20 min/8 mile drive. Only go for a flat rate instead of metered. Don't hesitate to negotiate. Driver very informative and gave us recommendations. Requested rooms on same floor. This didn't happen. Probably due to our late (Midnight) arrival.
Hotel retains it's old world charm. Rooms quite comfortable, but not modern by any means. Wi-Fi was very fussy. Staff very curteous throughout our two day stay.
Burger restaurant on the property is overpriced at $12-$16. CVS a block away for last minute necessities. Subway across the street. Starbucks is a quick 5 min walk. Free trolly stops across the street...great way to get around the city IF there's room to get on.
We picked this hotel to avoid additional shuttle charges. Worked out perfectly as the hotel is only 250 yards to Cruise terminal 4. Even dragging our suitcases it wasn't more than ten min away.
Late check out is only noon. Period. They held our bags without issue. The casino was very clean and enjoyable. If you love to walk and explore...this is the place. Rooms a bit on the expensive side ($200 per night), especially factoring in age of the hotel.
Very visible police presence along the docks. Oddly, very comforting.
