Estrellia and Roger are paid their basic monthly wages by us to maintain the property and for housekeeping duties. Estrellia is also paid to cook breakfasts if they are included in your rental package. When you order from our menu, her cooking and washing up services are included in the menu price. Self catering guests should pay her direct for her services if she is preparing meals from groceries that you have brought with you.
Should you ask our caretakers to provide additional services or washing duties you should offer to pay them for their work. Wages are around 300 pesos per day in this part of the Philippines, which equates to around $ 6.50us or € 5.5.
Estrellia and Roger won’t ask for gratuities, but it would be much appreciated if you leave a tip to show appreciation for their services. Consider inviting them to join you for your last meal.
Oh….by the way, we expect our guests to be kind and respectful to our staff, otherwise they may end up having to swim home…
