        So interesting. I always thought you give a cash tip. I never even thought of giving gifts. What a great idea! Some people are so thoughtful!!!

              Toiletries are always welcome but we got married at pp last march and my (now husband) forgot to take his sunglasses,we could not buy any at all at the resort or in Holguin,It ended up with one of the barmen on the beach offering to lend him his for the duration of our stay,apparently the only way they have sunglasses is due to the kindness of guests who give them to them on their departure.xxx

                We travelled to Varadero in Cuba last year,
                We tipped the maids with toiletries and they loved them, with the waiters we found a few peso's each day kept our glasses full and the service good, this also applied to the waitress in the dining area who made me flowers from napkins and reserved our table for us each evening.

                Hope this helps

                  You are very welcome. I had thought about using this little message myself but I think it would be a good idea to make little cards with instructions for leaving tips in the OOT bags.

                  I am also going to add a little blurb on our wedding website closer to the date.

                    Thank you for posting the translation!!

                    We often bring toiletries as gifts for the hotel staff, especially when we travel to Cuba. However one year when we went to Dominican we brought old baseball gloves and balls to give out. They loved them!!!
