For me, this is the only choice for a place to stay when I am in Paramaribo. The only downside is the hotel is not closer to some of the sites and tourist destinations in town. The upside includes the fact that it is a Marriott, so one knows what to expect. Another biggie for me is the staff. They are always very kind and accommodating.
I have stayed in three different types of rooms; standard, Jacuzzi, and river view. I believe my favorite is the river view. It is relaxing to go out on the veranda and watch the activity on the river.
The food at the hotel is very good.

The wait staff kept saying that they never see Americans here and that they want more of us to come visit. We gently warned them to be careful what they wish ...
... I was able to grab the fish line, and carefully walk my way towards the dog. When I was close enough I grabbed her by her neck and put her between my legs. The fishermen joined me. We broke 2 pliers trying to cut the hook itself as the tip of a fishing hook has sharp sides facing both ends.

Bakki used to be a well known town, known for its rich plantations. After the slavery in 1863 plantations were abandoned and there was not much left of the landscapes. However, some years ago Marsha Mormon returned to Suriname from Holland to find her roots of her ancestors who worked as slaves, together with her husband, Bas Spek. After finding a plantation they managed to dig out a ...
... bags, sardine packed adults, 6 kids taking a row of three seats, etc. My friend looked a little dumbfounded and I had to carefully explain that yes, this is normal, and no, we weren't going to die. Once he planted that seed in my head though, I started to worry if the tires were good or if this driver was going to leave us a mangled mess inside some compact car eating pothole.
By 9:30am we had reached the Albina ferry terminal ...

Gunsi was delightful, but hopeless for seeing wildlife, so we decided to take a tour to the uninhabited interior of the country. These tours are quite expensive, but since uninhabited areas are not well served by public transport they are the only practical way to go. One of the tours advertised in our guesthouse as 'adventurous' took our fancy, and after some hurried phoning around ...
