Honestly I cannot recomment this place more!! Mei is a dreaaam of a girl, she's so funny and smart and easy to work with. The work is easy and chill, nothing you haven't done before if you've worked as a waitress. The hours left me with kore than enough time to do my online work & go to the BEACH. Romblon is STUNNING and Mei make's sure that you're safe and and able to explore, this experience also allowed me to make friends with the locals. The accom was clean and beautiful! I loved this place so much I've decided to stay for longer than my original 2 weeks and I'm definitely going to be back

Hey Zara sorry for my very delayed response was sooo busy I wish you stayed until Feb end to help me with the guest at Stone Creek, they were lovely. Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm glad you love the island and you enjoy your stay with us 🤗 Let me know when you buy the flight ticket coming back ✈️ You're always welcome here and eat all the mangoes seed part 🤭

Thanks Selina, you're very much welcome to stay or volunteer with us again. It was fun hanging out with you after working hours, playing chess and going to the beach. A little sad that we don't have much time but here's a little update: it's been raining here since you left so you wouldn't like it as well 😅 Safe travels and good luck to whatever you wanna do back in Germany 💕

It was my first experience and it was amazing!! I stayed 2 weeks and half and I learned a lot of things about local food, met some locals and foreigners that live in the island (very lovely people)....we cooked dishes from scratch, visited the market, I helped by hosting the guests at the hotel and learned about how is the management of the hotel, and really you need to think and provide a LOT of things when own a hotel. I was always a guest but this time I could be part of the staff and was perfect. Mei was very kind and helpful all the time. I will always be GRATEFUL for this experience =)

Thanks Paola :) I miss hearing you chopping garlic 🤣 2 weeks well spent cooking, getting around in the island and having fun at the beach! Christmas and New Years were little less lonely [knowing that Carlos is in heaven :')] , thank you so much for your company!

My experience at the hotel was incredible. Mei was extremely welcoming and communicative, she makes you feel like family. My tasks were very reasonable, just a few hours a day, and working in the restaurant helped me get to know so many locals. The accommodation was clean and cozy, food provided was delicious, and Mei even helped me to get the most out of exploring the island. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe and taken care of. I cannot recommend this volunteer experience enough!

We had an incredible experience with Carlos and Mei. We learned to cook new dishes and tried incredible food! Our time together was truly enriching! We work serving Carlos and also some customers, and we help in the kitchen with Mei. We were lucky enough to be there and volunteer at Carlos' birthday, it was incredible. Carlos and Mei thank you for the time together.
