As my first volunteer experience, I believe it couldn't be better. The staff is like family, they received me with a warm welcome, and they helped me every time I needed.
The tasks were very clear yo follow. Sometimes you need to stop a task and help with another thing, but that was ok, I was there to help. They always respected the working times and rest days.
I hope the next volunteers can continue the work at the organic garden, it has a lot of potential.
To everyone looking for a calm and quiet place to be a volunteer, I definitely recommend you go to Adhara.

I liked so much Adhara resort, it's a good place. It's so relaxing, I recommend this place if you want have a relax time in the trip.
The tasks were very well and easy, I worked in Front Office, at the Bar and sometimes in the restaurant, and if you don't know very well how to do the task they teach you, and is easy to learn.
The most I liked here was the whole staff, they are excellent people, so kind and helpful, they made me feel so comfortable, I really loved all of them.
