Ok, thought I'd start a thread for this instead of polluting some of the others. Everytime I see it mentioned I want to say something. From a review today:
"No tipping is required but I believe in tipping so I did anyways."
I believe in tipping as well kind sir however I also believe in honoring Sandals no tipping policy. I would never want to jeopordize anyone's job and have heard many stories of Sandals employees being fired for accepting tips.
"Other all-inclusive resorts claim to include tips but the staff still expects it. At Sandals tipping is prohibited and a genuine smile is all that's expected. Only personal butlers are allowed to receive tips."
