Welcome to my blog! Here, we’ll be discussing the topic of tipping at resorts. Whether or not you should tip at resorts can be a controversial topic, so I wanted to provide my own thoughts and opinions on the matter. I hope that through this blog, we can all come to a better understanding of when it is appropriate to tip and when it isn’t.
Many people don’t realize how important tipping is at resorts. The staff members who work at these places rely on tips to make a living. They work long hours and often don’t get paid very well. When you tip them, it shows that you appreciate their hard work and it helps them to make ends meet. It’s also a way of showing your gratitude for the services they’ve provided.
Here are some of the services that warrant a tip at resorts:
1. Room service – If you order room service, it’s customary to leave a tip for the person who brings your food. Good place to start is to leave a tip that’s equivalent to 10% of the cost of your meal. So, if your meal costs $100, you would leave a $10 tip.
2. Housekeeping – Housekeepers do a lot of work to keep your room clean and comfortable. They deserve to be tipped for their efforts. A better hing to do is to leave a $2-$5 tip per day, depending on the level of service you received.
3. Bellhops – Bellhops arethe people who help you with your luggage when you arrive at the resort. They also help you with any other needs you have during your stay. It’s customary to tip them $1-$2 per bag, depending on the size and weight of the bags.
4. Pool and beach attendants – If you’re staying at a resort that has a pool or a beach, there will likely be someone there to help you with your needs. They can provide you with towels, umbrellas, and other items you may need. It’s customary to tip them $1-$2 per day, depending on the level of service you received.
When it comes to tipping at resorts, there are a few things you definitely want to avoid doing. There are some things not to do tipping at resorts:
1. Don’t tip too little – When it comes to tipping at resorts, you don’t want to skimp on the gratuity. Remember, these workers are providing a service and they deserve to be fairly compensated for their efforts.Better thing to do is to tip 10-15% of the total bill.
2. Don’t tip in your local currency – If you’re traveling internationally, be sure to tip in the local currency. Tipping in US dollars will likely result in a lower gratuity than if you tipped in the local currency.
Tipping is important at resorts because it helps to ensure that employees receive a livable wage. Many resorts rely heavily on tips to supplement the wages of their employees. Services that warrant a tip at resorts include but are not limited to: housekeeping, concierge, room service, valet, bellhop, and shuttle services. When tipping at resorts, it is generally considered appropriate to tip 15-20% of the total bill. However, you may choose to tip more or less depending on the level of service you received. It is important to remember that gratuities are always optional and always remember- never be pressured. If you are unhappy with the level of service you received, you can always speak to amanager or supervisor about your concerns.
