The GP guest can make reservation for Punta Emilia and Tepanyaki table, one day in advance at the guest service desk.

Now, we are offering a reservation system for the GP guest trough the chat at our app, some of our staff respond the chat, if we have availability they confirm the reservation (we don’t take reservation trough the chat for groups, Tepanyaki or Punta Emilia) and usually they are for the same or next day, we send the ticket to the guest room.

So, if the guest want to go with a reservation they need to download the app and chat when they are at the resort, we only offer spaces at the earlier sittings (5:60, 6:00 and 6:30 pm)

All- Inclusive…. Tips included?

Tipping at an all inclusive

I was always intrigued by the ‘tips included’ enticement in travel advertisements. But I wondered, how do the workers at resorts get their tips if they’re included in a prepaid resort package??? I decided to do a little research and ask a couple veteran workers (both management and staff) at the Palladium (it’s amazing what you can learn while having a few drinks).

I was told there are some 1300-1600 employees at the Palladium depending upon the season. Almost all of the non-salaried workers belong to a quasi-labor union. The union negotiates with management over how much the resort will contribute to an employee ”tip account” based upon the number of guests staying at the resort. The amount of money deposited in the account varies on a daily basis. The higher the hotel occupancy, the more money deposited in the account – the lower the occupancy the less money. Each worker’s portion is calculated with variables such as job title, experience and seniority factored in. In addition to the “tip account”, each worker earns the legal minimum wage of about 50 pesos A DAY (approx. US$5).

Employees are paid every two weeks. Since most workers do not have bank accounts or a safe place to secure their earnings, they’re issued a MasterCard brand cash card. On payday their earnings are automatically credited to their cards. They can use any ATM to make cash withdrawals or use the card in stores to make purchases. I’m told employees find this a very convenient and secure way to manage their finances.

So how much do workers actually earn per six-day work-week? This was a sensitive subject but from what I could gather it varies from about US$50 to about US$130 depending upon the season. If you think $10 or $20 a day is sufficient wages, then don’t bother to leave an additional tip. However, if you think employees deserve more for their hard work you may want to leave a dollar or two. Remember, if you openly leave a tip on a table/bar, it generally goes into a ‘tip pool’ and is divided equally among the workers at that facility. If you want to reward a specific worker, be sure to discreetly ‘palm’ your tip.

We’ll tip the grill guy at lunch or omelet guy at breakfast as well. Look for those who are in positions that probably don’t get a tip. Surprise them if they are doing a good job or a favor for you. Everyone works hard, I have never seen anyone loaf! Lorie (stat2er)
