You will probably be the first person -ever- to tip in an all-inclusive hotel :)

but there is no currency that is preferred for tipping, if you want to tip tip in whatever currency you want.
Just don't use any foreign coins because they won't be able to exchange them anywhere.

When I was in Kemer/Antalya last year, the Euro was the prefered currency everywhere we went. With the weakening of the YTL at the moment, I'm sure either Stirling or Euro would be warmly appreciated.

I hear that if you tip then you can expect better service and drinks brought to your table at pool side. Dont mind showing my gratitude for good service 8)

don't get me wrong, i'm not saying that there's anything wrong with tipping.
It's just that hardly anyone tips at (ultra)all-inclusive hotels.
