Does anyone know the taxi rate from the airport to Buccaneer Beach Club from the airport and what currency do they take ?
It will cost you US$16 (and US seems to be preferred) or EC$42. That's for up to four people travelling together. You may find yourself sharing with others going to nearby destinations and this has no impact on the fare.
Do we just go to the taxi rank outside the airport to get taxi
Do we just go to the taxi rank outside the airport to get taxi and would it cost more to stop at a supermarket to buy some staples like milk etc

Yes, it would cost more, there's usually a waiting charge if the taxi's waiting for more than a few minutes (can't remember the cost) but that's something you can arrange with your driver. For a 15-30 minute wait I'd ESTIMATE it may cost $5 - $10 more
The cost is $16 total, please see Mz George's post above.
And yes, you just stop at the taxi dispatch, there should be one literally on the other side of the street as you exit the terminal. Any questions there's also a help desk inside the airport to ask
We were quoted $20 by our hotel plus more for supermarket stop over ,
The rates are fixed and the fare is definitely US$16. Waiting time is US$5 per half hour, but this only works if all passengers are happy to make the stop. You don't have to go to the big supermarket on arrival if you don't want to - the little superette behind Antigua Village certainly has enough to get you through your first few hours - or ask the guys at Buccaneer to make sure you've got a basic welcome pack in your condo.
