Hot water comes quickly and reliably. Water is drinkable. Beds very comfortable. Nice terrace for snacks next to reception. Staff friendly. Holds luggage whilst on tours to interior. Money exchange and ATM about 100m away. Good value for such a convenient location, eg Krasnapolsky area is too quiet at night, Residence Inn where I stayed last year is also very... More

Stayed in the Eco Resort Inn on my last trip to Suriname. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. If you are arriving by taxi it can be quite a hike from the front desk to your room. the rooms are basic but clean. There is wifi available. You are on the north east side of town. Walking to...

This was our first hotel for a trip with a very large group (14pax) on a family-style trip. After some hassle on check- in to get rooms together for all the children we settled in quite nicely for a week's stay. There is an old part and a new part to the hotel which is reflected in price and quality... More

Clean and friendly environment. Excellent morning breakfast with all sorts of tropical fruits and juices. Plenty of colourful birds in the hotel garden. When coming back from a tough in-country trip, I enjoyed the comfort of my air-conditioned room, especially because I was granted a free upgrade.

I paid $10/night extra for a "Riverside room" assuming that this would in some logical way relate to a river. However, there was no river in sight, and no one at the front desk could explain why I was paying a surcharge for a river I couldn't see or hear or find. I asked the Manager, Michael Wong, to contact... More

Nice and quiet 3 star hotel with a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. My room was small but comfortable. It had a fridge but was lacking a small safe. The hotel serves dinner but there are more restaurants within walking distance.

Eco Resort is the low budget sister of a Suriname hotel chain. It is a great deal for the money. The location is close to an activity center with other hotels, casinos and restaurants. Eco is a nice place to stay if planning to enjoy Suriname's many natural tours. Tour companies operate out of the hotel. Breakfast - full -... More

Instead of all the luxury hotels that Paramaribo offers, Eco Resort gives you a bit more of an outdoor feeling. The building and furniture is ancient and looks well-maintained. Rooms are good enough and provide with all general facilities. Outdoor breakfast with a cup of coffee nearby the chirping birds is just a wonderful way to wake up with.

If you expect a 4 start Hotel, this is not it. The rooms are small but comfortable, obtaining a hair dreyer is a problem. Breakfast is simple, but sufficient. The location to the city is great , 10 minutes walking with great little restaurants and bars around. The staff is helpful but slow in some instances. Having said all this... More
