Our Studios at Sapphire Village
TAXI - VAN – These are air-conditioned, closed 12 to 15 passenger vehicles. Take one to get from the airport to Sapphire Village Condos, and to return to the airport.
As you exit the baggage claim area - (pick up free maps, “This Week” magazine, etc) you will be hailed by a “Taxi Starter-Guy." Tell him, “Sapphire Village Condos." He will direct you to one of several Vans. There will be as many people in the Van as the driver can manage, storing your luggage in the back. You may have to wait through an interesting “tour” of the island as the driver drops off other passengers before you.
ONCE IN THE TAXI/VAN: Tell the driver that you want Sapphire Village Condominiums, specifying that you want the Condos, not Sapphire Resort. It can easily take a half hour to travel from the airport to the Condo. After turning off the main road at the big Sapphire sign, the driver needs to turn immediately to the right, toward the Condos. [If he goes straight down the hill, he went the wrong way. Sapphire Resort has red roofs; Sapphire Village Condos roofs are blue.]
You’ll pass by Sapphire Village Condominiums gate.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO #182 DOMINICA BUILDING - It is directly across from the Village Office and very close to the pool.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO #246 BARBADOS BUILDING - Tell the driver to take you to Barbados Bldg. which he’ll find by taking the first right, up the hill. Then the first left - Barbados Bldg is then the building on the left. Have him drive to the farther end of Barbados, to let you out.
Cost: for two people with luggage it will be about $35, and drivers appreciate a tip. This is what we paid in January 2015. Like any good traveler, ask before you get in.
