I was just reading a couple reviews of some of the resorts I have visited.
Got me thinking about ATTITUDE.
When I see someone write about how all the staff is rude and gives no specific example of rudeness, just "they made me feel" like I was bothering them. (?) or some other such vague "feeling", I wonder about the attitude of the complaining guest.
Hey, we are on vacation and like to have fun. We have prepaid months beforehand, so it almost feels like we're getting all this paradise for free. :-) Now, THAT's a "feeling" to have!
Since we re on vacation, having fun, almost feels free, well then of course we are SMILING, A LOT!
Smiling at that waiter/waitress/barman/activity guy/desk clerk. Smiling!
Guess what, 99/100 times they smile back.
Sorta hard to have a cranky attitude when its two people smiling at each other.
I would suggest that those who think the waitstaff isn't friendly enough for their taste, try being a little more friendly yourself. After all, you are relaxing on vacation, they re working hard all day for long hours---it should be easier for YOU to "start the smiles".
