    They do have a website.. type rio guesthouse barbados into Google and click on the first link. You can also book through hostelworld I believe.

    The guesthouse isn't too far from the airport by cab....around 15-20 minutes. It is a far distance from the cruise ship. You will definitely have to take cab.
