I had a great time at Hotel Castle Park! I learnt so much about the history and culture of Berat and Albania, and everyone at the hotel was warm, welcoming and hospitable. A very comfortable room and the food was incredible too. Thank you Alma, and your family and team for such an incredible experience 💗

It was nice experience stay and work at hotel castle park, the work time is more flexibility, I am the web developer, all the people here is nice, and easy-going people. the hotel is located in the forest, it is quieter place, and many trees. I recommend if you want to do volunteer job, can try it. the restaurant also serves good local dish.

My experience was good, I've connected with other volunteers and I believe that was the reason it was a good experience. This volunteering looks like a proper job and the bosses don't seem to know how to deal with volunteers, I don't blame them I just think they didn't get the correct vibe of it. I wasn't disrespected at all but indifference is what I would call it. Most of the staff isnice and kind but only a few workers in the hotel know how to speak English so the communication is pretty hard. I recommend only if you want a comfy place to sleep and good food to spend some time in Albania.

Castle Park it's a beautiful hotel and restaurant located 1.2 km away from town they provide everything you need for your stay, the work at the kitchen is basically to be a dishwasher and sometimes it's hard to communicate with the team since they do not speak English only Albania, while Alma it's occupied with a lot of matters.
