One of the most important aspects of your tropical vacation is the hotel accommodations. After all, when all your daily activities are done, you are going to want to make sure you are comfortable in your place of stay. Here are a few tips as you span the websites offering resort accommodations.
1.) Price shop: One resort will quote you a price and tell you that you’re on your own for alcohol in your room. Another resort nearby may quote you a cheaper price and include a stocked fridge or additional accommodations. If you take the first package you are offered, you could be missing out on a great opportunity. Money is tight and in tropical climates, it’s generally a good rule of thumb that everything is negotiable. This includes what is or is not available in your hotel room and free of charge.
2.) Tip the staff: A tipped staff is a staff who is going to do more for you. Some resorts even post signs saying not to tip the help which makes it a little taboo. They are catering to the guest population who is not comfortable with the act of tipping and want to feel as if they don’t need to do it. Well, they don’t need to do it, but if you do you are likely to get first rate service for your entire stay. The same goes with bartenders. Tip them once or twice nd you won’t need to tip them again the entire trip. They will see you coming and already have your drink ready if you’ve established a regular drink.
Visiting a tropical island is a great time that everyone should have at least once. Let your hair down and visit the tropics.
