Some Testimonials from our Partners
“During the month of Nov. 2015 we had a youth exchange between four countries Lebanon, Portugal, Spain and Jordan. We stayed at SBH for a week and it was the perfect environment to held our youth exchange in term of place, service and the most important is the friendly and cooperative staff. Beside having a successful youth exchange we also (everybody) spent an amazing time in the SHE EcoPark enjoying the place, the tasty food, and the excellent service there. The food is healthy, taste full, and you do not need to worry about arranging the menu as the staff is thoughtful and well experienced. Also, the bonfire during the night enabled us to have cozy and quality time with every body. For us SBH is a partner in a success (not a service provider) and this is our highlight in this new collaboration and partnership. We already booked the eco-park for our upcoming activity in December 2015. On behalf of I-Dare team we would like to thank Othamn for all the collaboration and the huge understanding and help he provided for our work.”I-Dare Team
