    Typical cab costs from MBJ to Hilton Rose Hall

    Hi everyone.

    I'm new to the Mobay board so my apologies if a similar question has recently been asked.

    My friends are heading to Jamaica for the first time in late March, staying at the Hilton Rose Hall in Mobay. It will be about 9 total (5 adults and 4 kids ranging from 10 years to 1 year old). They've asked me the best way to get to their hotel since they don't have a dedicated shuttle. I typically stay in Negril, so don't really know the answer off the top of my head, so I was hoping someone had an idea of how much a cab typically costs for a 15 minute drive from the airport to the hotel (15 min based on what the hotel said). Basically I'm trying to find out if it's a better option than booking private transport which is what I've seen at about $160/roundtrip based on the size of the party -- which seems like a little high for such a short trip. I figure two cabs would be an option.

    Last thing -- based on this being their first trip, they'd want a JUTA/official cab as opposed to the "unofficial" cab drivers which I've definitely used in the past, ha.

    Thanks for any info!

    No idea but I would ask for help from the Hilton Rose Hall. Just my $3.06 JMD.

    I realize it's past your family's time of travel but the info I'd offer for people looking at this in the future is as follows. Almost everywhere is going to charge a price per person unless you know a driver from the past who has easy access to a bus that they don't have to rent. It's just the way it is there. The cheapest transport you're going to generally find for that particular commute if it is not included in your booking at the hotel is to just go through JUTA itself if the resort doesn't have a better option. There is a desk at the airport. With that large of a group it probably won't even be a shared ride with others like it is for most. I doubt you'll find it for much less than $10/person one way though. Here is a link to get a quote from the operator at the airport: JUTA airport transfers at MBJ: https://www.mbjairport.com/taxi-cabs

    In all honesty $160 US roundtrip for 9 people is not a bad price. That's a little less than $9/person one way.
