Tipping in Nerja. Tipping is not obligatory, but it is normal to tip when you feel you have received a good service, meaning that the amount of the tip depends on how satisfied you are with the service.

As in most cities and towns in Spain, people tend to leave tips for the staff in the hotel and restaurant trades.

In the hotels, it's normal to give the bellboy a tip for helping you with your luggage, or to the receptionist if they have helped you in any particular way, like getting you a room with a view when one wasn't previously available, or any other thing you may have asked for.

And while tips in restaurants are not obligatory (the same as in any establishment) it is normal to leave some kind of a tip. But as already mentioned whether to leave a tip or not and the amount of the tip depends on each person and how happy they are with the service provided.

Spanish people tend to just round up the amount on the bill, so say if a bill comes to 68? they will leave 70? in effect leaving 2? as a tip, a lot of foreign visitors prefer to leave a bit more, often around 10% of the bill.

In Nerja and the rest of Spain, tips are not included in the bill, neither is it obligatory to leave them as in other countries like the United States.

Tips in Nerja are not obligatory, but whoever receives one will be grateful for it, however small it is!
