“Boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

The cabans are basic. They call it luxe because if the airco and hot water. The restaurant is basic ( Rice with chicken or fish).
The river is like anywhere else in Suriname > Brown. Some if the staff are really unfriendly.
Most people who come here are locals. They bring their own food and bbq on the beach.
It is a goog idea to bring some Wine, cookies and snacks. This is not available in the resort. Only beer and soda. There is a fridge in the cabana.
The road is fine and the beach is tidy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

My fiance and I spent a weekend at the resort last month. We arrived at night around 8 o'clock. the road to the resort is in good condition. However as soon as you reach the resort it changes dramatically. Dirt roads are in bad condition and not very well maintained. At the reception it seems that they are not prepared for guests who arrive at night, so the person in charge was not available. No 'welcome to Overbridge' etc. We got our key eventually, and went to our cabana. I had spent the night there about 6 years ago and noticed that there were a few positive updates. The patio floor was tiled and the houses were painted. Everything else was more or less the same. (We had a large cabana). The accommodation is ok. Nothing special, nor spectacular. The garden around the cabana's is tidy and clean. There is complimentary coffee and tea, including sugar. Soap in the bathroom is of very low quality though; it crumbles when you take it out of its wrapping. Overal review:
1. Accommodation - Average
2. Road/walkpad on venu - Bad
3. Food - Average (expensive though)
4. Service - Average
5. Frienliness - Less than Average
6. Price - Average
7. Information - Poor

Would I go back? Maybe, if they fix the roads. Otherwise it's ok. But next time I'll bring my own food and drinks. It's so much cheaper!

Room Tip: Ask for the newer cabana's. I had one of the older ones (#12). It can be VERY noisy at times bec...
