money, money, money
We've left little treats as well as tips for the ladies that clean the room like hair clips and elastics plus, gum sometimes for the staff we know well we'll bring treats for their kids for school. But always smiling and being gracious and saying please and thank you goes a long long way.
Thanks for the advice.
Always money and as an extra, hat, shirts, sarongs, shoes etc...
What would be considered "tipped well"? Should I tip at the beginning for the entire week or after each meal (including / excluding buffet), drink ordered at the bar, room cleaned, etc.? I always tip for service and the better the service, the better the tip!
Plastic bags??? What!!!
My carry on is full of gifts galore but I asked at premier reception what they would like
I always make sure to toss the busiest bartenders a $20 every couple of days, they pay far better attention to me from then on. Housekeepers always get a daily tip, they amuse us so with their towel animals.
What did Premier Reception reply?
Amuse you? What do you mean amuse you? You mean like a clown??? Do they amuse you like a F'N' clown???
Sorry, I couldn't resist. It is my favorite movie scene of all time. If you don't get it, I apologize. You can watch the clip here:
Gotta love Pesci!

I Imagine TTR is like any other resort in this respect.
We tip well and try to use as much Spanish as we can. Even a limited amount of Spanish shows you have respect for their country and culture - at least you are making an effort. Plus, cash... cash also shows respect.
If you do want to learn some basic Spanish, try Duo Lingo. They have a simple process and is completely free.
CASH!!~!!! LOL they work there ass off and are doing it to support there family so I tip big when I can. The smile and joy they get makes me feel great.
Nothing says thank you like cold hard CASH. Other gifts are nice, but they can't pay their bills with t-shirts and chocolates
Glad to see a thread pop back up after 2 years!! I usually don’t get past reading the 1st page of threads!
I used the cash advice....the right and only call, especially with the tarbenders!!! The definitive difference between a drink and a GOOD drink.
Tarbenders!? They are obviously feeding you the GOOD drinks because of your wise tipping
Yes sir! Wise as term used very loosely but Alfred and Freddy at the Sexy pool always hooked us up very well!!
Ok, I lived in Cancun for 6 months and this part of Mexico for 2 years. It is not a 3rd world country and leaving food is a bad idea. One of good friends used to housekeep at a fancy resort and would throw away any food or candy left for her out of fear of them doing something to it. Cash is king. They need to pay rent like the rest of us and candy or food won’t pay the bills.
Canadian checking in. What kind of tips are the norm over there? Do I tip my maid at the beginning of the trip, everyday or a large tip at the end? So many questions lol...
Reason I ask is because I once saw an American show up to Hedo and drop a $20 USD bill to the bartender within minutes of arriving at the resort. As a Canadian, I can't compete with that kind of money...
Here's the breakdown right now with currency conversion, it's $25 CAD to every $20 USD and it gets even worse if we compare with 20 Euros @ $30 CAD!
So, can you guys break down how you tip, who you tip and when you tip during one typical week of being on the resort? Just want to do the right thing and not come across as cheap just because our currency has shitty value lol
Thanks for your time.
