    Great and thorough trip report! Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I bet it was fun reliving it as you wrote it too, huh. I appreciate the descriptions of the lay of the land.
    Glad you realized the secret to good service A little respect goes a long way.

    Now I'm pissed I have to wait 29 days to get to Hedo for my virgin trip!

    Habfan - One of David & Qian's reports made me get off my butt and book too! And another newbie one from... dannyboy.

    It was fun! I was advised before I went to write it as soon as I got home or even was there. Thanks for the kind words. You're going to have a blast, please report back!

    taking off my glasses when asking for something at the bar. Making sure they heard me
    say thank you and looking them in the eye. Using their name. It literally made a world of
    difference. Going forward without ever giving any monetary appreciation, I was served
    quickly, my drinks were remembered (regardless of which bar they may have been
    working at any given time). Me smiling and showing genuine appreciation was always
    returned with a huge smile and a �you�re welcome mon.�

    Appreciation towards staff: Thought I would throw this out there with regards to how staff obtains recognition...When you are checking out, there is the option of special mention to any staff members who you really appreciated during your stay. From what I was informed, the names actually do give the staff some sort of attention from management. Unsure of whether it is ratings on performance, or other... I had asked how we could show appreciation towards staff members since tipping was not permitted, and the response was "when you check out, put their names on the paper and it will help them. They will appreciate you mentioning them". We have mentioned staff on each check out after that as they have gone above and beyond to make us feel very "at home" and made the trip even more enjoyable.
    If someone else has anything else they know of how to show appreciation by abiding to the Hedo2 rules, please do inform.
    Great and realistic trip report!
    We bring small gifts for housekeepers (books, magazines, new clothes, small items for their kids, candy, beauty items etc.)and/or staff we know well enough to know what they might like. Just put their name, your name and the item (s) on a piece of paper with the gift so they can accept it.

    From what I understand you have to get to know the Staff a bit through out the week or on multiple trips as this sort of thing isn't necessarily against rules but I believe it's still frowned upon. But you can leave it in the room and or hand it to them if you see them discreetly.

    I really wish I could find a place a group of people like this closer to home. Just unadulterated acceptance. Of others and ourselves.

    This is one of the best reports I've read. Wish I had read this before our maiden voyage, LOL. Very well done.
    Life is too short for drama and petty things, so kiss slowly,
    laugh insanely, fuck like there is no tomorrow, and forgive quickly.
