1 Developing social awareness



It was a good experience, they treated me very well, I made friends, I was able to practice English and even Spanish.
The schedules were respected, my room was private and I received all the meals (a delight).
The city is small, so be aware of that.

I really enjoyed having this experience. Well, everything happened as agreed, the tasks were accessible and well explained. Geraldine (the manager) is a very correct person, helps with tips and gives all the support. Seamus owns it, but it's not talkative. I never spoke to him. The house employee Loise is also very friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend. The meals are good. The only downside is that the city is very small, but very beautiful. Would stay there again, for sure. If you want a nice place, it's here.

Good experience and one of the best accommodation on this platform.
The location is ideal for beautiful scenery, calm and peacefulness . Small but not too remote. Local bus is right by the hotel.
I have to say I do not recommend for first timers, you are expected to adapt right away and not much information is provided but the team is always available to answer your questions and also for people that don’t enjoy spending time alone. I definitely would go back.

The amount of work is insane , they put me as waiter and they dont give u the table # , u had to guess every time , the lack comunication is a thing also between the members of the org, we were not allowed to grab many types food , they barely give you toast, marmalade and egg, sometimes milk, they are not capable to negotiate days off or exchanging shifts,geraldine told me that if I didnt like it I must move on , so I did

Just stay away of this place!! unless u want to be kicked out !

My experience with this volunteering was bad. I cannot speak about the tasks that had to be done because they did not give me the opportunity to stay there because the next day they sent me to another volunteer on another island because they did not need me, on the fourth day of having been in the other volunteer I wanted to return to Newport to talk to my Host and stay at the place I originally applied to but the Host only let me stay one night because he said there was no room for me. The truth is that the treatment of the Host was not adequate and I do not recommend this place to volunteer
