The hotel is a quiet place, full of nature around it, the guests are very friendly, usually older people and very respectful. The center of town is very peculiar and beautiful. Eric is a very good host, always attentive to you and your needs and willing to help you. Ester is very good at teaching in the kitchen and I thank Gabriel and Monica for teaching me everything about housekeeping. I thank each and every one of my colleagues because day by day they taught me many things.

I really liked the experience at the hotel, it was very quiet in my private room near the forest. The co-workers were very friendly and helped me with everything I needed. Eric is a very kind person who was always looking out for me. Thanks a lot!!! :)

My volunteering was incredible, exceeding all expectations, Eric and Esther made me feel really good. Careful and friendly, they sometimes have delicious desserts, delicious food and comfortable accommodation. My experience was incredible, the volunteering was cool, the tasks went smoothly and within the agreed time. Thank you for the experience, a big hug. To the next!

Incredible experience, the permanent employees of the place Esther, Erick, Simone and Delano are extremely friendly, always interested in helping you. The food is very good, at first the early dinner was strange for me, but I quickly got used to it. I've done several volunteer jobs, but this was the one that provides the best structure and comfort. My work was for breakfast, super easy. I highly recommend
