    I was there a few days in February, I met a unfriendly staff especially one guy very impolite.... And the opening hours of the reception are not very useful: close all the afternoon to 5 pm..... Also no parking space, all of them were busy....

    There are no buses from the airport, my shuttle cost about $26 . A local bus may go from the highway but you have to walk from the airport to the highway and wait for it and there are no designated bus stops that I know of.
