The location of the treehouse hotel is unique and worth the visit if you’re not looking for too much party.

When the lodge was fully booked I was expected to stay 7 nights out of my 4 weeks (25% of my stay) in a storage basement -which is dirty and right under the restaurant which caused immense noise problems-.

The crew of volunteers is super small (3 people).

At the end of my stay I asked about when I would get my tips from the tip box and heard the pleasant surprise that we were not eligible for the money in there, I felt super let down

Being at The Tree House was amazing: incredible place, food and people. I recommend it 100%... Also the people of El Valle town is really nice and friendly. I had a wonderful time there.

As soon as I arrived to DTHV I made sure that this is one of the most extraordinary places I've ever been to. The staff becomes your family and that comes with the full meaning of what "family" is. It means that sometimes they will give you a kick if you act too much like a baby. But they will also give you a hug whenever you'll need it. The most difficult part about being there is saying "goodbye" to all the amazing people who come to the TH and then they leave. And then one day you're the one who's leaving and that's even more heartbreaking. But you're leaving with a baggage full of smiles.

It is a changing life experience. The place is amazing, you can not understand how it is if you don't go. You will sleep on a tree house, in the middle of the jungle. That's it! The staff is lovely, the activities to do are super fun. Please go and change your life!

The Dominican Treehouse village is such a magical place, everyone is so friendly may it be the guest or your colleagues. As a volunteer, I got to help out at the bar but mainly organise art/music activities for the guest. Volunteering at the Treehouse is so enjoyable it feels like a vacation!! You'll spend your time talking and playing games with the guests in the evening whilst serving drinks and cleaning a few glasses, during the day you have to cover some lunch shifts depending on how many volunteers are present, if not you'll be free to explore the island and get to know the locals.
