We're going to the Blau Colonial in March and have been hearing and reading conflicting stories about tipping and gifting the staff. Some say do it generously and regularly, others say that the country may seem poor but that the staff in the resorts are not because of the generous volume of tips they receive. I've never been to an all inclusive resort and want to do the right thing, but don't want to just throw money around either. My sister said that she tips at the end of her trips and when she stayed in Cayo Coco (different resort) that her service quickly dwindled because she wasn't tipping as she went along. Also, how much is recommended to tip? I've heard one peso per day/service, but I've also heard that's not enough. What's a girl to do???? Thanks!
