I'd give each of them 50 dirhams.

Is that about a tenner, personally I don't agree with tipping when all inc unless service has been particular outstanding because I think it becomes expected. There is a choice factor to work in the hotels that offer all inc and the costs are built in the price. I would prob tip very little if anything for the bar man in a non all inc hotel. I would however prob tip the maid daily if I thought they did a good job.

A tenner! No, more like just under £4 I think. (But then maths was never my strong subject.)

I'm curious to know why you differentiate between AI hotel vs a non AI hotel. Surely the AI is for drinks not to cover tips.

I feel the AI market has damaged a lot of good hotels and the careers built in them , I am doing AI because this is a mini break and i want to keep in control of costs but I do think a hotel will work harder if it needs to satisfy a guest, with AI I have found the service and standards tend to me less as they don't need to really try. Guests will simply struggle on if its not good and often wont go out of the hotel to put money into the local community , if its good they def wont go out and put money in the local community . Tipping is ok if not expected but when you see how some areas have gone with high expectations on tipping when in a all inclusive , it sort of becomes a unofficial cost to the holiday. The amount of reviews ive read not on this forum but where you need to tip the pool buy for a lounger, the drinks man for any kind of drink service, the bar man to be sure service is quick, the restaurant man to be sure you get a reservation at your convience , the maid to ensure they do service the room properly, it just goes on and on and loses control of a situation But that is my opinion and many love what AI offers.

Agree with David, 50DH (£4) is a good amount to give.
