I typed tip butler in the search box, above, and got over a hundred threads to look at. This research could be very helpful to you. IMHO, it's not where the butler works at as much as what service did he provide, Everyone's different and I can respect that. The few threads that I looked at had one thing in common where people couldn't find their butler when they left to go home so the best intentions mean nothing if the guy doesn't receive the tip right?

We tipped $100. He was wonderful. But we didn’t ask him for much because we really didn’t know what to do besides check on dinner reservations and reserve a bed on the beach.

Tip is based on service provided.

If you worked him hard and asked a lot, then tip accordingly.

If you never used his services or he didn't offer much of anything, same principal.

Typically if you use your butler, the going rate is about $20/day. Of course people can tip what they want, but that is the general rule if they did provide great service (which they usually do).

Our first visit to Mexico was to Paradissus la Perla & we are from the UK where we only tip in restaurants if the service is really good & perhaps hairdressers & taxis occasionally but we don't tip in bars or for any other services so we weren't sure what to do. As it turned out our butler only made our dinner reservations for the week & we didn't need anything else at all so we just left an envelope with $30 in when we left.
