A gratuity payment to her is always optional, but we encourage it if she provides you a more than satisfactory level of service. A suggested minimum gratuity for our housekeeper is US$5/night/per person. During your vacation you will be staying in a private home, not a hotel. The cost of electricity is Jamaica is very high. Consequently, in addition to any energy surcharge that we might have asked you to pay, Ms. Hinds has been instructed to turn off lights and air conditioners in the apartment whenever it is vacant. That means if you leave the apartment for the day and leave a light or air conditioning split running, she will turn it off. If you have any question or problem with this instruction, please bring it to our attention immediately. Our aim is to balance your desire to have a comfortable and enjoyable vacation and our need to control overhead costs. PLEASE NOTE THAT, UNLESS ALTERNATE ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE IN ADVANCE, CHECK-IN WILL BE AT 3:00 PM, AND CHECK-OUT WILL BE AT 12:00 noon.More
