Thanks

Does anyone have cab fare rates from the Poly to DTD, AK & HS? I tried using one of the online taxi calculators but it was giving me like $36 to AK. Is it seriously that much!?!?

Just got back from 2 nights in Niue. LOVED it. I had requested Samoa or Tokelau, but I am so glad we were put in Niue. We faced the quiet pool, had a 30-second walk to the GCH and Capt. Cook's, 30 second walk to the Volcano pool, and a short walk to the Neverland Club. The view was beautiful. (Booked standard at Florida resident rate.)

I'm so happy we finally got to stay there! Lapu Lapus were delicious!

That's good to know. It will be my brother and nieces 1st time at a deluxe! Very excited for them. We are going March 3-7 2014. I wanted to be close to TTC but thinking Tokelau may be better since they will be closer to everything.

Thanks

Poly to DTD was approximately $15 + tip

Poly to AK was approximately $25 + tip

We haven't taken a cab to DHS from the Poly. However last trip, I wish we had. We waiting over 50 minutes for the bus It wasn't the busy and a CM was following it up and it still took that long. It was almost 90 minutes in travelling time. I would have rather paid for a cab.

Geeez , if I stayed at the POLY for 18 days I would be fine walking everywhere.......

Kudus to you for such a long stay!!!!!!

I take it this is 1 way....looks like it may be close to the same price for us to rent a car. $190 for 10 days and that saves us from tipping ME and the bellhop for our bags (so $30 saved). We would spend at least $120 in taxi fares.

DTD seems to be a problem with every resort except POR/POFQ where there is a boat...
