    I was wondering what everyone does for tipping? I am a career Bartender by trade and tend to over tip. I know “tipping is included” but obviously everyone appreciates extra tips. What is standard for our butler, bartender, server, maid etc per day? Do we tip every round? Do they prefer USD or Pesos?

    We tip at Temptation just as we do at home. Bartenders, restaurants, coffee shop, bell hops, transportation, Boobs Cruise, etc. We bring all USD. We do tip every round. My wife and I both bartended in the past, and not only is it the right thing to do in our opinion…when it’s busy our bartenders make our drinks with just eye contact…no waiting in line necessary in most cases.

    Oh no....the dreaded TIPPING question. Tip decently, but inevitably someone is going to jump on here and tell you they tip insane amounts and how all the resort staff barely make any money and rely on this and yada yada. Somewhat true, but most people tip and this job at TTR for them is a big deal.
    Don't believe the hype.
    Definitely tip the staff. If you get good service, be generous, your service will remain or get even better. Tip when you get your first round at the pool, and if they took good care of you tip em again at the end of the day. They'll remember you tomorrow...

    We usually do a dollar or 2 for drinks, 5-10 for meals.

    Been many times and ordered many drinks. I always tip at least a dollar for every drink every time. Have never noticed it speeds up service. It’s always a simple wait your turn situation. I suppose other results vary.

    K and I generally bring a stack of small bills ($1s x 50 and $100 in $5s). We tip the following amounts, based off various internet tipping guides:
    • $2 at the buffet
    • $5 at one of the sit-down restaurants.
    • $1-2 for the barista in the morning (K drinks coffee like it's going out of style and visits 2-3 times...per morning).
    • $2 for a round of drinks for the 2 of us at the pool bar, Premier bar, whichever - if we happen to have cash and are not actually in the pool
    • ~20% on spa services - I asked for the same person last trip on each of my like...3 visits to the spa and tipped her extra, cause #40% loyalty
    • $2 / night for housekeeping
    • $10 to $20 at the end of the trip for our Premier butler - we don't really make requests, but when we do, our butler is super prompt at getting it sorted
    • $5 for the bellhop for our bags - we travel with 1 giant suitcase and 2 "personal items"
    • 15-20% of fare for the airport transfer driver
    Internet tipping guides I referenced:
    Your mileage may vary - tip as you wish, don't succumb to "peer pressure". It's not the end of the world if you forget (see: pool bar, nowhere to put $ when I'm wearing just bikini bottoms ), or if you don't think the service was good (for some reason, the service at the steakhouse was just horrible both nights that we ate there on our last trip. amazing food, incredibly slow service for non-kitchen matters like refilling water, etc.).

    I've overtipped once, when a waitress was leaving for another job. She went above and beyond with our group and deserved it. I tip for everything - restaurants, bar, bellhop etc. Only thing I don't like tipping for is the 'personal butler'. Seriously after 4 or 5 trips with a butler tagged on, never seen the point. We tip but never see them again whole trip! Next time I was considering just saying 'we don't need a butler' and not tipping to get the point across.
