“Marriott Paramaribo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Probably the best for kids and business - good pool - excellent internet, both in room and the four PCs in the lobby running Windows 7.
Breakfast good, meals at the pool enjoyable. Not an extensive dinner menu, but there are many good restaurants in town (I've never had a bad meal there) - try the one at the Fort, no menu or air conditioning; on the river and pleasant, they serve meat or fish plus a number of side dishes as they wish.

The hotel's taxi service picks up at the airport for $15 - doesn't pay to rent a vehicle unless you're heading to the country. I've found using their taxi service generally cheaper than the "free ranging" ones - the Taxi's are not marked.

Get a room with a river view if its in your budget,

Room Tip: Watch upper corner rooms with hotel AC units - could be noisy. The river view rooms overlook the po...

We held our weddingreception and our honeymoon here.
The stay was very lovely and the staff was very helpfull.
Our weddingreception was very well organised and we had a wonderfull time without worring something could go wrong.
Staff is very helpfull and the hotel is nice and clean. The view from the suites are awesome looking over on the Suriname river and the dawn in the morning.Very lovely.
I'd go again!!!

Room Tip: If you want an experience of nature in downtown Paramaribo, the riverview would be great,looking out...

Hotel is good, with friendly and helpful staff. check-in was hassle free, and room service was great. enjoyed the food at the restaurant - buffet had lots of variety. Internet was free (yeah!!!). the hotel was a little quiet though and a little away from the restaurants (there is a chinese restaurant nearby) and bars, but i had a car so there was no problem. by walking would've been like 15mins.

room is spacious and clean, with great turn-down service. pool is ok, nothing special with view of the river (forgot the name). it has a shallow section for kids (if ur interested). i also checked out the gym which is small, but nice. overall, a great hotel just a quite and a little away from bars, restaurants and shops.

Room is spacious and clean with basic amenities. However, we like the service provided by this hotel - very courteous reception staff who efficiently checked us in after 1am; arranged a taxi to take us to Albina at 6am and prepared a bag of breakfast for us to eat in the car (all done by a same guy). This is what I consider a good service despite the ordinary basic room.

Word of warning: Be prepared to carry your own suitcases.

The hotel is very neat and modern, just as it should be but not very warm atmosphere. It place a lit to far from city centre in middle of nowhere.

Both check-in and check-out take a little too much time

The courtyard is a business hotel but is also good for people who just want to visit the country and have a nice place to relax. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The staff is friendly and very courteous( always willing to go out of the way to accommodate your needs.) They provide amenities such as free internet in the business center with coffee and tea, pool, gym and even room service so you don't have to leave your room when you still have work to do. Overall the service is excellent, especially the wait staff at the restaurant. They serve an international menu too, but have some Surinamese dishes also . I would stay here again, it's close by to all my meeting in the town which is only about 5-10min.

This Courtyard Marriott is a little remote from downtown but offers a quiet and relaxing stay. It is in a nice and safe neighborhood. Downtown is about a 10-15 minute ride via Taxi. The hotel is only a few years old and is consistent with the Courtyard brand. The rooms were nicely appointed, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The rooms did include a refrigerator which was great for storing beverages. There is a pool and the food there was average. There is better local food to be found outside of the hotel. For Indonesian food, I prefer Miroso in Blauwgrond. Also great food at a restaurant in Fort Zeelandia. Don't remember the name but it is the only restaurant there.

I would highly recommend this hotel for business or first time visitors to Suriname.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are consistently quiet. I had a street view room. Rooms facing the river a...
