          I would suggest that you try to find a private transfer. of course we love hotel shuttles but they are a little more pricey compared to private companies. Maybe even uber if you're not traveling during peak hours.

          You come out the hotel, turn right before you go through the next part of the building, I e towards the restaurant, walk through the garden cross the road you are at the water front.
