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...

An aweful place. Don't go here if you're looking to get sleep. The beats of dreadful music still hammer in my ears after a sleepless night. Some of the staff are very friendly, some others are very not. The best is the breakfast buffet. If it is not being scavanged by a locust-like tourist crowd at the moment you show up. Never again.

This hotel was chosen by our touring company, and we stayed three separate times; excellent every time. The rooms are ordinary, clean, hot water. Breakfast is outstanding, omelettes to order and a savory option such as beef stew, in addition to all the usuals, hot and cold, you can eat for the day, and it's generously offered 6 to 11. When at Eco Torarica, you can use the hotel passport card to use the beautiful pool and excellent fitness center at the very nearby sister hotel Torarica, for no added fee. Eco has a small pool and pleasant pool deck and its own bar and restaurant. But there are ample food options around. There is cheap but good Chinese and Indian down the street away from town, or town is walking distance with Indonesian and other options. The main sights are walkable from here, closest being Ft Zeeland. Best of all though at Eco is staff! Lovely attentive bar staff, always smiling front desk, and brilliant breakfast omelette maker and servers.

A good option especially for those you spend more time away from the hotel than at it. Our hiking crew used here as a base and it served our needs well. The rooms and commodities was actually ok. Convenient!

you get what you pay for is valid for this place. the rooms are OK, but the location and setting of the hotel is so so. The views and setting of the rooms are a bit muggy. I was unimpressed with the lack of deliverance of pick-up service at the airport which was pre booked - but no driver/taxi showed up. the reception staff was unwilling to help and sort this out upon arrival as well as on departure. not very professional and this takes down my impression of the hotel

This is a branch of the acclaimed Torica hotel chain. It is the low cost branch. The Inn was comfortable and very nice. The rooms were very comfy and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was nice.
