Coach transfer or private?

Hi guys! We're flying in next Monday in Punta Cana and going to Sensatori resort in Uvero Alto. We have a TUI transfer included in our package, wondering whether to just stick with that or get a private one? It's only 40 mins away from the airport and doesn't look like that many hotels before... not sure, any suggestions? Thanks

I tend to get private transfer to and from the hotel and not bother with the transfer included as sometimes you can be waiting a long time for other passengers to board the coach after landing.Plus you do not know how many drop off's at other hotels on the way it will include on your day of arrival.On my last visit we were checked in at the hotel, unpacked and a quick shower to freshen up and was sitting in the lobby bar having a drink when the TUI transfer turned up with other passengers off the same flight.

I agree with everything that Angie said.

I took a shared transfer once in my life, but NEVER again. What should have been a 25 min ride turned into an almost 2 hr ordeal. It was the waiting for other passengers to board and dropping them off.

The savings of the shared transfer wasn't even worth it at all.

I agree with post 1&2

I have also been at the resort with a drink , long before the other people I saw on plane arrived 👌🏽

Would take private transfers or a taxi there and take the included transportation back to the airport. Want to get to the resort fast and does not matter going back to the airport.

Endija,

Is that roundtrip or one way?
