I've done AIs in Aruba many times. I'll tip the bartender (usually $1 per cocktail) and if I'm taken care of during my stay, will tip a larger amount when I leave. If I go to the buffet, I'll tip the wait staff. For housekeeping, it varies. Sometimes I tip every day a few bucks or just leave a bigger tip at the end of the trip.
paul and i do similar as SUNNY
alas we have not stayed at the Tamarijn in probably 4 yrs.
love that place.

Dinners at the resort restaurants same as at home depends on service. Room Service we go with $5.00 per day, not up front(but many first day) you should leave a note for room service, as most likely they will not take it if they are not sure it is for them .
We’ve been to the Divi 3 times now and will be going again in a week. What we’ve done in the past is tip a few bucks at lunch and dinner for the servers and give bar tenders a buck or two here and there. At night we’ll give our favorite bartenders a 5 or 10 tip and you won’t have to worry about waiting for a drink for the rest of your vacation.
