There are many customers when reaching our beautiful island, are not interested in the process of picking up the car that same day. Some people simply prefer to take a taxi to the resort, get settled in, and rent a car the next day. If you are staying at any of our hotels - Pelican Resort and Marina Residences, Divi Little Bay Resort, Wyndham Sapphire Beach Hotel - we will be happy to escort you to your hotel at a fee less than the local taxis on St. Maarten.
