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.

It just feels to me like ...
... of the other group staying at the lodge left in the boat to go hike up Misty Mountain. They didn’t get back until dinner and they were dirty and wet and not very happy. Wasn’t a good hike as it rained on them most of the way and they saw nothing but the trees around them.

... That’s pretty much a south Asian fruit so can’t imagine why they have them here unless they are growing them. Don’t know the answer to that but since mangosteens tend to leave a stain if you get the juice on your clothes, I didn’t get any. Of course, later I was very sorry not to have any. The market had a few things I didn’t recognize but not much. The chicken sellers did not want ...
... and a few young boys and girls. The Immigration Official allows it and tells us to wait a bit before we go in the door as it is full in there and the A/C is running. Unfortunately for us, the church leader comes back out to the door and even though our group had worked its way to the front of the door, he calls for the rest of his group to come in and get in front of us. So they start pushing and shoving their way to get in front ...
... we headed east, crossing the 55m high bridge to the area of former plantations. Jordan suggested a Javanese house would be full of flowers for aesthetic effect; an Indian abode, a vegetable garden for commerical value.
First up was Peperpot. These are not places preserved like the deep south, Brys. Little was left of touristic interest. The plantation home is private property. We went for a short walk in the area of the compound houses for the ...
