  • Description


    Ideal for Online workers, we need someone to be present at our Lovely Boutique Hotel in Olón Center for the off hours.
    Since our staff only works daytime, we'd like for someone to help check in guests that arrive later and to have someone present at night. Most (other) guest communication is directly with us as the owners via Whatsapp, RING doorbell, or other ways,

    We offer:
    a private room with double sized bed, fan and private bathroom with hot water and you can use our breakfast kitchen outside of breakfast hours.

    Ideal for people that want to slow travel, combine volunteering with online work, retirees and everyone else that likes the Olón atmosphere and vibe (This means, no partying in nearby Montanita). We appreciate people to sleep at the hotel most if not all nights, but it's not neccesary to be present at all times of course, and days off can be scheduled in weekdays.

    Olon has some really great restaurants in all price classes. The beach is wide and long with grassfields and palm-trees and seafood and cocktail cabañas. It's spring-like to tropical weather (never cold) makes it ideal for Expats too, about 600 live all-year in the surrounding areas. It atracts families and couples from the city and abroad, and our boutique hotel tries to offer the best combination of price, facilities, continental breakfast buffet and such. We have 12 guest rooms and 1 volunteer/receptionist room, of which we are currently opening 6 because of the situation. We have already reactivated 2 months ago, count with all the required and aditional measurements and everything is renovated during 2020 and people love to be here!

    115MB WIFI FIBER OPTIC available everywhere in the hotel and on the beach!

    We encourage you to practice lots of spanish while here, there are great Spanish schools nearby too! We'd love it if you'd take our staff for some english practice, too! Our guests are mostly local from the city, and have great interest in other places, cultures, people and such, plenty of chance for a low-pressure cultural interchange!

We expect mostly presence and some social interactions (and keeping your desk area clean), we have normal staff for (cleaning) work and such.
