Also, since this is my first time going, how do you know what bus to take to the hotel. I’m booked through WestJet vacations.

Once you’ve cleared immigration and customs and exit, there will be a set of booths / signs for the various tour operators. Just find the one with the Westjet name. Tell them what hotel you are going to and they’ll tell you which bus to get on. Each bus will have a large cardboard sign with a number on it. They’ll tell you which number it is (something like 9 or 25). They’ll all be parked in the same area, not sequentially unfortunately, but your bus will be relatively easy to find.
Watch out for the porters. They’ll want to porter your bags to the booth, and then a second porterage to the bus. Neither is a long walk and unless you are disabled, a porter isn’t required and would just be a convenience.
When you get to the bus, there will be someone there to check your paperwork, verify that you have made it to the bus and to load your luggage. Don’t get on the bus until you have seen your bags actually put in the luggage compartment.
Usually most people tip the bus driver, the guy who loads the luggage and the guy that gives ‘the speech’ on the way to the hotel. Oh, and more tip money for the bellhop at the hotel…
Have a great trip. It’s a pretty nice, but large hotel.
