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.

Other choices of activities are kayaking, another nature hike but this time along the river, a boat ride down to Mui Mui ...

... 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 ...
... not the best exchange but money in my pocket.
Omar and I walked toward the civic and historic part of Paramaribo. It was overcast and the occasional raindrop was a fearful harbinger of something worse. We hugged the Suriname River, passing by Independence Square, various statues of people heretofore unknown to me, barely anyone else about save the occasional tourist. It was a very leisurely stroll with Omar on his cane. Precious little was open but ...
... city centre. The streets were still alive as it was a Saturday night and tomorrow is day off for most people. We passed through the historic portion of Paramario [pare-ra-ma-ree-bo], Frank saying UNESCO was not happy that monies provided for WHS purposes has not been spent thereon.
Finally to the hotel. At least we had rooms. We split at c 0245 with an 0800 rendezvous for brekkie. Not much fooling around in the room, the principal thing to set the alarm for 0730.
