Ordinary rooms in the 3- to 4-star range surround a 5-star garden area featuring a pleasant pool, spacious patios, plenty of free-standing massage huts, a palapa fitness area with whirlpools and much more. The massages are very good value by U.S. standards. The grounds, especially around the docks and landing areas, are grand for evening strolls.
Suriname is very Dutch, but there is always an English speaker at the front desk. Most of the guests here are from the Netherlands – they regard Suriname as “tropical Holland” – but most of them also speak English.
A bonus of all that Dutchness is the availability of excellent Dutch pancakes in a pannekoeken café less than one block away. A short taxi ride away is a large and very popular Chinese place. Breakfast buffet at the hotel was standard hotel breakfast buffet. The hotel's menus and indoor restaurant areas looked unappealing, so we ate elsewhere for lunch and dinner.
Strange experience: In the middle of the night a maid tapped on our door and said she'd come to change the pillowcases?!?
