After Portugal's exit from the 2018 Soccer World Cup the 33-year-old headed to the Costa Navarino resort in the Peloponnese region of Greece with family and friends.
Reports suggest that Ronaldo gifted the staff of the resort with the mega tip as a thank you before heading to Turin for his unveiling as a Juventus player.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner asked hotel management to split the figure equally among all staff.
Meanwhile, La Liga president Javier Tebas has claimed that the Portuguese attacker's move to Juventus was motivated by money.
"He will earn more money (there) than here. I think that fiscally it favours him to go to Italy. Here, in Spain, we have a problem with fiscal competition."
The Spanish tax rate for footballers is at 52% compared to 46% in Italy.
