Tipping

Some hotels—usually those classified as resorts—automatically add a 5%–16% service charge to your bill. Check ahead to confirm whether this charge is built into the room rate or will be tacked on at checkout. Tips are expected, and appreciated, by restaurant waitstaff (15%–20%), hotel porters ($1 per bag), maids ($1–$2 a day), and taxi drivers (10%–15%).
