Totalmente recomendable mi experiencia como voluntario en M&M garden. Solo pase dos semanas allí pero fueron muy provechosas.
Conocí gente amable y humilde con valores.
Echaré de menos esas mañanas con mi colega de mantenimiento Janer, los cantes de Noemí, a mis amigos mexicanos, esas tardes en la piscina, pelar cocos y muchas cosas más...un abrazo para todos los miembros del M&M y gracias.

La mejor experiencia de mi vida! En Hoteles M&M me encontré con una familia, personas amables y cariñosas, me hicieron sentir como en casa
Muchas gracias Erika por darme la oportunidad de aprender con ustedes y de ustedes.
Gracias a todo el staff, a Carolina, Elisa y Fabrizio porque siempre resolvían mis dudas; a Vilma, Vianney, Evelyn, Nohemí y Yadira por consentirme; a Fernando y a Janer porque siempre tenían una ocurrencia para hacerme reír.

Saludos a todos de parte de David también. Gracias por recibirnos :)

Los recordamos con mucho cariño, esperamos visitarlos pronto! Pura vida!
