All Your Questions Answered About Tipping at an All Inclusive Resort
You've booked your trip to an all-inclusive resort and more than likely it states "tips" are included in your price, but is it really? The quick answer is yes, but the staff taking care of you all week really only see pennies of what you've pre-paid. The good news, you will have little need for vast amounts of cash (unless you just plan to buy or do a lot of extra things, which could also be awesome).
Still, lots of people have questions about tipping at an all-inclusive, and we want to help you navigate this as smoothly as possible, since it’s different than what we do in the States.
Note that if you staying at a Sandals Resort, the butler and spa staff are the ONLY people you are allowed to tip, so you can scroll on down to #6.
