Tipping Question?

How much do you typically tip the villa staff and how do you split it between cook and housekeeper?

>> The mysilversands website suggests 10% with a little more than one half to the cook.

>> I read a previous post where the writer says she tips 15-20%.

We have usually given 15% of the villa price with a 60/40 split.

Just curious how much others tip.

Yes, I don't know what's the usual, but I've gone with 15-20% of the villa cost with a 60/40 split between the cook and housekeeper. If the yard crew or anyone else seems appropriate, I'll tip separately. Seems to work out..
