Our Tips For Tipping Our Staff

At Sea Breeze Beach House, we enjoyed some amazing praise on TripAdvisor from sambo016 who wrote a review called Our experience at Sea Breeze.

"My best friend and I just got back from Sea Breeze Beach House after celebrating her 40th birthday. I have to say, we loved this resort!

Staff: this is truly what makes the experience. We’ve both traveled extensively in the Caribbean, and we’ve never met people quite like the Bajans. Their hospitality is second to none. Some of the staff felt like family after just four days there. They are so kind and friendly. They really go out of their way to make sure you feel at home.”

Such wonderful praise reminded us of one of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on our website: Is it ok to leave a tip at an all-inclusive, and how do you go about it?

We are happy to advise that at Sea Breeze Beach House a service charge is already included in your room rate, and a fixed percentage goes directly to the front and back of house staff every month. We truly believe that they are integral to our guests' experience, not incidental to it, and it's only right that they receive this contribution.

We're immensely proud of our amazing team and the impeccable service they provide, so we understand why our guests often want to show their appreciation with a tip for the staff. In the Sea Breeze Beach House FAQ section, we explain it as follows:

"Please note that a service charge for staff (tips/gratuity) is already included in your room rate. However, if you feel you have had extra special service, you may tip hotel staff directly.

Alternatively, you may choose to leave a team gratuity by handing an envelope to the Front Desk Manager labeled as such, and this will be shared with all hotel and back-of-house staff members."

So, please don't feel it's expected, but do feel free to tip at Sea Breeze Beach House of any of the Ocean Hotels Barbados properties. You can rest assured that the staff will sincerely appreciate the gesture.
