I had a really nice time at Ria Terrace.
Nuno, the owner, is really chilled and helpful. He always tries to make you feel at home. The rest of team was amazing too, especially Dani and Renata, who helped me a lot. Thank you!

The location is perfect, right in front of Marina, and the guesthouse is nice with a nice terrace. Only the volunteers space is a little uncomfortable but if you are not too needy and easily adaptable is gonna be okay for you :)

The job is easy and well organized and you have a lot of free time to visit the city and the rest of Algarve.
Recommended! 🤗




This was my first experience with woodpeckers and I can't say much about!!
Unfortunately I had family issue and I had to leave on the third day.




It was amazing the experience that I had in this beautiful city and cozy hostel, the team was amazing and we had such great time together!
For sure i'd come back, and spend more time there. Algarve is amazing!
Thanks Nuno for everything, I hope you really liked the helping with your websites.




the hostel is not bad and they have a room for volunteers (without windows) the tasks are not heavy. The bad thing is that they have bed bugs. They all bit me and I had to go. really bad.




What an experience! Everyone was really friendly, i feel like home and the vibes were so chill. Nuno, the owner, was very kind with all volunteers. The tasks are very easy and you have a lot of free time to discover Algarve's region and Portugal.
