We are heading here next week - we're hoping that the many not so positive reviews prove false although are realistic that we aren't going to see 4-5* service and facilities.
We're wondering about hiring a tax for a day to tour us around the island .. stopping in St. John's, English harbour etc. and perhaps lunch and some shoppping. Does anyone have experience doing this? Can you hire a taxi from the hotel? do they have a set price and maximum timeframe they will tour you around? Also, any recommendations on a nice restaurant within a short taxi ride away within the area? Does anyone recommend the hotel restaurant Picolo Mondo? or are you best to go off the resort? any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks :)
