Gratuities and Tipping

Starting in 2015 Carpe Diem introduces a “no tipping” policy once you arrive at our resort. Hotel tipping is one of those things that can make even the most experienced traveler uncomfortable. We have therefore added a 5% service charge to your room rate as a basic gratuity, which we pass on in full to our service staff. All of us, the housekeepers, the breakfast staff, our friendly front desk team, as well as the spa attendants want to make sure you will have a great stay. – The Carpe Diem staff welcomes you with open arms and not open hands.
