we have been going to the villa del mar ( a section of the palmar) for over twenty years. we have always found the staff, many of whom we have come know quite well, to be of the best character. they are happy to be employed here and state that the wages are amoung the best and the built in tip - about $4.00 a day per room - actually gets shared amoungst the ones you seldom see, the security personnel, laundry, gardeners, pool boys and maintenance folks all get a share, we think this is excellent. it helps to give a little to the chamber maid and we do tip the waiting staff and that is shared with all the kitchen people. for a few bucks here and there, maybe 10% of your entertainment bill, the rewards are wonderful, not only does it make you feel good, you are helping the economy cause it all goes round and round.
we look forward to having many more holidays at the villa del mar/palmar and going to all our favorite stops, andela's, el torito's, the oceania on the maleacon, etc.,etc..
