Just another question... obviously we will be tipping waiters/maids etc... but wondered whether little gifts for the maids would be appreciated? In the past we have given gifts of toiletries when we have been to the Caribbean... would this be something they would like?

I would stick to Mauritian Rupees for tips. Wages are low in Mauritius and tips are very gratefully received.

No problem Kaz. We tip the taxi driver, the porter when he brings our cases to the room and again when we are leaving, housekeeping every few days and waiters at the end of the holiday. There's a general tip box in reception and we always put something in there too for those members of staff we don't see, i.e. kitchen staff, gardeners etc.

Most hotels have a comment sheet/questionnaire asking about the service you have received. They like to know you've had good service and to name those who have excelled. They work on a points system and the highest ranked employee is given an award.
