I’ve seen a lot of posts about tipping/gifts for the maid anywhere from $1-5$ a day. This must be a great benefit to them (20 rooms X 2$ = 40$/day extra as a guess) and technically they could end up with more perfume and candles than they need or can use.
What about other employees? The guy who serves you the free drinks on the beach, the person outside the bathroom with the hand sanitizer, the table staff in the buffet or a la carte, desk clerk…I’m sure I am missing tonnes of other helpful people. These people must get very little compared to the maids.
Do people tip them and give them gifts? If so how much? Why not tip everyone in pesos as it is their currency? Can they do more with US$? And wouldn’t you also have to give them a note saying you gave them the money/gift as they would get checked by security also?
Any information would be helpful so I can plan how much money I need to beg, borrow and steal so I can live in a manner I am not accustomed too.
