We always left a tip for the cleaning staff and in the refrigerator about 40 pesos for the cleaning staff on your pillow under the covers and 20p in the refrigerator or 2 dollars for the staff and one dollar for the refrigerator depending on the currency you choose. We did it this way because sometimes the tips would be gone on the pillow and the room not cleaned yet so I suppose it came to first come first serve.In the lounge we would give the waitress a dollar for bringing the drinks about every other time she brought them. In the a la carte restaurant 100 pesos or equivalent per meal. Bar tenders a dollar per order. One tip is to ask for the good alcohol or you will get really really bad alcohol in your drinks and if you don't tip you will have to argue your way into getting a good drink. We would also leave a tip at meals for about 20 pesos each time however this is entirely up to you. If the resort is really busy, this is entirely pointless but if the resort is not too busy it is often a good incentive to make friends with the staff who are wonderful to talk to. Tipping is not mandatory and I think you could get away with tipping in many cases however it's true that the staff get paid very little and tipping is a big part of their wages. I don't like it however that management knows this and I would rather they pay the staff accordingly than have them rely on the guests to earn a liveable wage
