On tour with KE Adventure UK and local agent Wilderness Explorers so stayed twice in a week. First impression was total lack of empathy from reception staff and having to ask for help with luggage and finding room in distant third block on first floor (there was a lift/elevator). Room style 1960s and a bit tatty. Poor lighting. Tv had some English language channels. No tea/coffee supplies. Second impression, reception staff still unhelpful, room in first block on ground floor but still tatty and comments as before. Ate at restaurant second occasion; staff and food were okay.

Personnel of the Toucan Bar/ Restaurant and breakfast-buffet are friendly and providing service. Shameful for the hotel that personnel of the reception is the opposite. The reception people are doing their routine but never with a smile nor friendly (extra) word. They don't know how or not willing to seek solutions when they obviously make a mistake, in this case concerning the transfer to the airport. In a very rude manner they told us we did everything wrong, wanted a freee ride. We ended up paying double for a misunderstanding that was partly their mix up. The guy even began to lie to safe his own face. Although the rest of the stay was ok, this debacle will make this time the last time we stayed at Eco. The bathrooms are poorly constructed, so the shower wets the entire bathroom floor. .

We did visit 4 times during our holiday. The rooms were good except one not good flushing toilet. The breakfast (from early to 10:00) was very good. It was a short walk to the center of Paramaribo. The have a small pool with towels (except for the first day we visit) and a bar (closed on the second time we visit). Note that the prices are extreme high for comparing with all other places we did get a drink. The main issues where the very late check-in time of 4:30 PM and a very rude receptionist, not only to me but to multiple guests. I really don't understand that a hotel would have someone like working by the reception. They have a luggage store. They give you stickers to prove what luggage is from you but it is not used when collection the luggage. The first time we wanted to collect our luggage we needed to wait very long till the employee did show up.

positive: - breakfast was good. although very busy during rush hour (a lot of tour groups are staying there) - free wifi, working well negative: - check-in only at 5 pm - so they let me waiting for hours always pointing to the official check-in hour - although I'm quite sure that rooms were already made up by housekeeping (as they already started to go around the rooms and knock at the doors at 9am) - not very friendly and helpful reception - tiny pool - rooms were outworn

We spent one comfortable night at the hotel before taking the plane to another place. They kept our luggage and all was fine. But when we came back (Saturday night) for 3 additional nights, the nightmare began. - Check-in is 5pm and they will not check whether the room is ready or not. You just have to wait until 5pm and that's all. - The neighbors had a party and the music was so loud that I don't have the words to describe it. I called the reception several times, but they said they could not do anything but bring me earplugs (which I already had, but were useless for such a high noise level). The noise was supposed to stop at midnight, but it did not. It only was slightly less high and at 4am the music could still be heard... - Our new room had a problem with the air conditioning and all our stuff got wet and the floor was slippery. We had to struggle to make us heard, because they would not admit the problem, but eventually we managed to get another room for the last 2 nights, and could dry our things. Breakfast is good and with much diversity, but only if you are at the good time point, which is not too early and not too late! Indeed as soon as it's getting busy, the staff cannot cope and finding a seat, a knife, a cup, a glass, gets really difficult. Also on our last days, pancakes were still not ready at 6.45 although breakfast starts at 6...
