Tipping etiquette in Cancun?

I'm headed to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun this weekend, and I was wondering about the tipping etiquette. Though officially, tips are included in the overall cost, I've read online that it's wise to tip anyway. Does anyone have any experience with this?

What sort of tip would be appropriate to a bartender (per drink), for example? Should I also be tipping the housekeeper? Should I be tipping in dollars or pesos? If pesos, will I be able to get them out of a bank machine (my regular method for exchanging cash) or should I exchange at the airport?
(Bonus question -- should I be worried about drinking water/ice while I'm there? I'm staying at Catalonia Riviera Maya, if that makes a difference.)
Thanks a lot for all your help! I'm looking forward to a relaxing vacation, and your answers will help me to relax even more!
