    My husband is in charge of tipping. We have always stayed at the Tam. We always tip our housekeeper for the week. We have the same one every year. Even though she does not see us for a whole year, when we arrive and she spots us she gives us a big smile and hug. It is worth it to know your housekeeper...they will always keep a watchful eye on your room.
    He will tip bar staff and our special friends at the restaurants that we have gotten to know well over the years.
    Since tips are pooled as was mentioned earlier, it does not always guarantee you faster service, as they dont' always know who tipped and who did not.
    It has always been my thought that tipping is generated by the quality of service, so I guess the bottom line is that is a a personal preference for each individual experience.

    I was at an AI in Ocho Rios. When you had a dollar in your hand and the bar was packed with people trying to get their drink, you were noticed by the bartenders a lot quicker than the people w/o a dollar. It was a small price to pay.

    Just a thought for tipping the maid...... leave a little something each day rather than when you leave.... remember, the person that took such good care of you all week just might be off the day you tip and leave!

    will a penny do it?, because I have to agree with danny o on this one, although we never have stayed at a AI , alot of places add a tip on, but when you take into consideration, how many share that tip, my wallet opens, but when service is really bad, what they added on was enough

    We just came back from the TAM and we did some tipping. The bartenders especially appreciated the tip (said so themselves) and they even remembered what you were drinking....
