Currency in Tobago/ Tipping.

I'm going to Coco Reef in July. What currency do I need?

I've just returned from Jamaica and we just used American dollars everywhere.

Is this the case in Tobago?

Also, although we were on an all- inclusive I tipped the room maid daily, they get paid so little . it was a good way to ensure lots of clean towels and an immaculate room. I really didn't mind parting with a couple of dollars a day.

Is this normal practice at The Coco reef ?

All replies welcomed.

Thanks !

Roxy,

The hotel would accept US$, but I'd suggest TT$ for everything else.

Tipping is of course welcome.

We found the local people preferred $TT's- maid service at coco reef was fantastic-they even came back and cleaned the room again when we were at dinner-worth a tip!

Thanks for your replies.

I'd just like to ask Clairship , from Kent ,what amount would they advise leaving as a daily tip for the room maid?

Are there any other staff that you would also advise tipping?

Many thanks .
