RDMB maid service

Generally speaking, how many maids did any of you see working in your rooms during your stay? I ask, because I'm trying to determine how much in tips/gifts to bring along. From reading other posts, it sounds like maybe there would usually be 2 maids working a room in a given week....but I'd like clarification, if possible. Thanks!

I usually saw one in the room, but there was often a second person that brought towels later in the afternoon, and a third that came to pick up the garbage and mop the floor later on. I think the first might have just done the beds? We usually tipped J$200 a day.

Usually the maids do work in pairs, but probably over the course of your stay you would have 4 different maids, as they would have their days off in there somewhere.

Be prepared for your room to be cleaned late in the day, island time slows everything down.

We love this place, enjoy your trip!

I also have a question about the maid service. How do ensure that each one who works in your room receives a tip/gift that is left? Especially if the rooms are cleaned late in the day, I am sure I'll be relaxing on the beach or at the pool. Thanks.

Arreguina, ask Beverly who your maid is and who does your room on her day off. She can also give you am envelope and you can put money in it to pass on to the maid.
