STX to The Palms at Pelican Cove

Need advice from my fellow travel folks - We live near Sacramento CA and would love to go to St Croix in Feb/March and stay at The Palms at Pelican Cove - Costco Travel actually can get us there and we would arrive at 9:15 at night. We have never been to St Croix so is it advisable to take a taxi from the airport to The Palms ? Or just go ahead and rent a car that late and drive over? I am hesitant to drive at night in an unfamiliar area and on the otherside of the road from what I am used to. I understand - we can work with The Palms and have a car delivered to us at the hotel for the rest of our stay. Just wondering how we can get to The Palms from the airport

Thanks for the help!

I would take a taxi arriving after dark. It was hard enough to find it during the day. The Palms are quite a way from the airport so have no idea how much it would cost. We loved our stay at the Palms and used our car almost everyday. We rented a Neon from Avis and drove all over the island. The staff at the Palms were wonderful! The bartender loaned me a cooler to take with us when we were out exploring. The food was very good too at the hotel, but we mostly ate off property. There is nothing in walking distance to eat from the hotel (or if there was we didn't see it).

Ask the hotel if they can recommend a taxi driver. It may cost a couple more dollars, but we use a private driver on St Thomas to get us from the airport to the ferry and it's worth it.

Take a cab and ask centerline to bring you rental the next day. They will usually deliver to hotels
