Guidelines for tipping please

We would appreciate some guidelines for tipping in Honolulu please. I have checked the forums but there doesn't appear to be anything recent. Just occasions/people to tip and how much is appropriate. Thank you.

Agreed re threads above. There was also one even more recent from march this year...thread is titled "advice needed", it comes up when you search tipping.

As said above advice hasn't changed.

When you search set your sort to most recent or date.

.at least for me the default is relevance and it picks some really old stuff.

15-20% tip on the bill before tax in (sit-down, full-service) bars & restaurants

A few dollars extra to shuttle or taxi drivers per ride

A few dollars a day to the maid who cleans your room

A few dollars if/when you use a valet parking attendant

15-25% is fine. There is no official guideline or reason to up it to 25% in 2015. Please disregard.

Where did you get the 25% "scoop"? Don't think that is happening.

15 is fine. 20 is very nice. Higher for me means someone went completely above and beyond.

Pago always says stuff about tipping. Sometimes he tells us 10% is plenty.
