Tipping at Wyndham

I have a co-worker that is planning to stay at Wyndham....as this is an all-inclusive, does anyone have any information on the tipping policy at this resort?

Tips are accepted. We always tip the maid $5 per day and also tipped the bartenders daily, they have a tip jar out. Also tipped in the Italian specialty restaurant and Shaq the pizza guy at night! Awesome pizza!!

15% gratuity is included in the price of your hotel - this typically is not just on food and drinks, it's added to the entire purchase price of your room. In addition to this gratuity, some guests do tip directly like Mike does.

Both US and Bahamian currency are freely accepted everywhere except the Casino which is only USD. No need to exchange.

Just out of curiousity, is it easy to exchange other currencies like the Euro or Canadian dollar?

Yes, but as always the rate at the hotel reception isn't that great. The banks, closest are at Port Lucayan (ride the free bike for about 30-45 mins or grab a cab), give about 10% more dollars. Best is to ask for US not Bahamian, they can supply either.

All the best,

Kate, if you are picky about your liquor, make sure to stop on the way to the resort to pick up your favorite brand. The liquor at the Wyndham is bottom shelf. Also grab some bottled water, they only give you 1 liter in your room, asking for more never seemed to work. The items for sale in the small shop onsite is a bit pricey.
