The Experience

We are a home, away from home, in a typical portuguese small town ,3 min walking distance to a long sandy beach, or to small beaches in the middle of rocks, with puddles of crystal water, with sea stars . Our house is in a quiet street , but 2min walking distance to the bars and restaurants area , to the bus stop, and taxis. Volunteers'll be helping in different tasks around the house.

Foi uma experiencia maravilhosa! Para quem deseja conhecer as praias mais lindas do Algarve, o hostel está em uma localização fantástica. Cristina e toda a sua equipe me receberam muito bem. O trabalho parece ser bastante exaustivo no começo, mas com o passar dos dias e com a presença de todos, vai se tornando mais fácil e os horários são sempre respeitados. O café da manhã é divino. Vale a pena :)

Estuve en Ar de Mar una semana. Fue una muy linda experiencia sobre todo por los voluntarios que conocí, unas personas excelente.
El staff permanente, Teresa y Fernanda son geniales!, están para lo que uno necesite.
Cristina es una persona muy exigente y perfeccionista. Así como también es muy alegre y esta bien dispuesta para los huéspedes.
Es mucho el trabajo a realizar y un poco duro. depende de lo que a uno le toque hacer, según el día.
Mis horarios fueron respetados, salvo el primer día que trabajé una hora más. pero después en general terminaba entre las 13:00 hs o antes.

The experience was great from the first day until the end. The tasks are easy and fair, and in the afternoon you can chill at the beach because it is super close! :-). Cristina and everyone were truly welcoming and kind. They were always there to brighten up your day with their smiles and the great breakfast. I would totally recommend the experience. :-). The guests are really nice as well!
