    Has anyone stayed at other all-inclusive resorts before like Sandals and Couples? The staff there will not take cash tips from you, it's a strict policy. I'm suprised that RIU is different. I wonder if the staff gets paid better at the other resorts....

      Actually Sandals, Beaches and Couples are owned by the smae company and they try to say its Ultra-Inclusive, which is why they dont allow tips, but to be honest if someone treats you well (even if it is their job) I dont see any harm in tipping, just as long as they dont expect you to....but if the wedding goes well and she's a big help we're definitelty going to give her a card with a little sumthin sumthin.....

        I loved the idea of giving something specific to your hometown. I think some Chicago Frango mints are in order. I had also heard of giving a perfume set which I thought was nice too.

          We are getting married in Maui and our WC bill includes the photographer. Do I tip together? We only hired them for the ceremony and we are having a very low key reception on our own. Help

            If we hired our own wedding coordinator, I thought their fee, which is usually 15-20% of the total cost of the wedding, covered their services. That's almost several thousands of $. I don't mean to sound ignorant, but we have to tip on top of that? I think I'm going to have to opt for a gift for them.

              I purchased my wedding planner a few things; a pen and pencil set with her name engraved on it, victoria secret gift set, and a nice tip at the end. She made my life so much easier. I thought it was appropriate. LOL, I used to send her multiple spreadsheet, word .docs., and call all the time with the craziest request. She was able to accommodate me at any time. She was also easy to reach. I didn't break the bank with these purchase. In addition, it was the thought that counted. She made my dream come true.
