I, too, was surprised with people saying they were tipping in an all inclusive hotel, it had never even occurred to me that it was the done thing. I saw a thread in which one person said they tip around $250 in 2 weeks, which is a substantial amount added on to your AI package! That said, I imagine a few dollars here and there can make a huge difference to the life of lowly paid staff.

If we`ve had good service, or the same waiter/ barman has served us for a few days and they`re been really good, then we leave a tip. We don`t leave a set amount, just how we feel about the person concerned. I think it`s nice to say thanks if someone`s been really pleasant and helpful. We wait til the end of the holiday to leave a tip for housekeeping, as I don`t want anyone to expect something every day.

We are off to Mexico soon. I had read a lot about tipping at our hotel so emailed the manager to ask. He said it wasnt expected but the staff would appreciate it. Reviews clearly said you get better service if you do. We always tip at AIs in Europe but not a lot, 1 per person per day for housekeeping and 1 a round if service at the bar tables is quick. We have noticed that people who tip get served quickly.

We found this guide to tipping when we were looking around.

I haven't been AI for a couple years and we usually go to the Canaries not further afield, we tip the bar staff a couple of Euros each night.
We went to Tunisia in 2010 and tipped there and received outstanding service! but I am aware that it was a hard time for the tourist business there and many Tunisians had been out of work in the service area.

Personally I would tip a little but would definitely not tip someone who came knocking on the door asking for a tip ...Yes You Fuerteventura hotel maid !

I've only been AI once but we didn't tip. I guess I might if I asked for something special or one of the staff went out of their way

Just back from 4 nights/ 5 days in an all inclusive hotel in Cyprus. Staff were incredibly attentive and service was faultless. I put 10euros in the tip box in both the restaurant and bar at the end of the stay

So you have to bribe staff to get them to do the job they are paid to do- give good service?
