Mobile Amazon Grocer vs Instacart vs Personal Shopper?

For those who have stayed on site, have you used any of the above? If so, how easy was it? Any problems? Anyone used more than one service and are able to compare? Iím trying to figure out if the shopper fee is worth it for us. We are staying at AKL in November (two of us) and we are on DDP. No car rental.

We definitely want a case of water. We drink a lot of water anyway and we are aware we will likely drink more there. We probably want some things like breakfast foods for the days we need to grab and go for rope drop, and cheap wine for the nights we will be relaxing at the resort.

Can I confirm for those who have used the personal shopper services, is it the one fee for the grocery and holding any parcels? If so, then thatís tempting.

Whatís the variety of foods like with Amazon Grocer and Instacart? Can you also get medicines from them? Travel sickness pills and basic painkillers. What about Crest whitening strips?

Finally, does AKL shop sell cases of water? And if so how much are they (for a comparison)?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I used angelbabe's personal shopper service for parcel holding & groceries and it was one fee to deliver everything.
There is a small charge on the groceries to cover costs but its still far cheaper than paying onsite prices. For us it was ideal I shopped the sales before I went than ordered a few groceries mostly things I knew I could not get onsite but needed without being tied to doing a large shop. I will be using the service again for our next trip

can not comment on the other options as never used them

Garden Grocer is good, used to use it, but it is ridiculously priced compared to Instacart which essentially offers the same service- I arrive, and my shop is delivered- they even both shopped at Publix. So I stopped using Garden Grocer.

Exactly this.
Instacart is cheaper than Garden Grocer from my own personal experience and I am now a convert to instacart. Iíve not used Garden Grocer in a few years.
