    Concierge services

    How much do you tip the Concierge at your resort to make a reservation for a restaurant? Is this necessary if the restaurant is at the same resort you are staying? Thanks for your advise.

    I usually do 3-5 dollars.... however, if the restaurant is at the resort, I just reserve directly with them.

    We usually have a list of three or four restaurants we give the concierge to book for us. We tip $5.

    I usually just give $2 or $3. I see many people not tip at all for restaurant reservations while I'm waiting in line for someone to help me. Someone once told me to put my money away, it's only a phone call and it's their job. I just smiled and said it's a very small token to show my appreciation for their help.

    Thank you, but really it's not a big deal. I always consciously do things to try to teach my kids to be aware and look into everything they do for more than just the face value. It's not a $1.00 for a phone call to a restaurant - it's a thank you for taking the time to help me. They usually make recommendations or offer tips on where to sit or what time to plan so you get the best sunset view.

    I'm not a world traveler by any means so this may be common, but I feel such a warm appreciation for every little thing in Aruba. Every small tip is appreciated. Every compliment and small gift is appreciated. Our presence is appreciated and welcomed by the people of Aruba with heartfelt thanks. It makes giving those small gifts & tips all the more gratifying.
