Tips are always included in the bills. It's called 10% legal, so you don't have to feel obligated to (double) tip if you don't want to. However, if you do want to tip, you can always round up the bill or tip 10%-15% of the bill if the service was good. Don't leave coins unless they're Dominican currency because they can't be exchanged for Dominican money.

You can give maids, bell boys, etc. up to 5US$ if you want to tip them.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
