Eco Resort Inn
Eco Resort is a renovated colonial townhouse with modern rooms, pool and tropical garden close to the historic centre of Paramaribo.
The eco-conscious hotel is located and within walking distance of the historic centre and close to a district famed for its fashionable restaurants. Formerly a townhouse, the Eco Resort Inn has been renovated while maintaining the authenticity of its Dutch colonial architecture. There's a country-style terrace restaurant serving local dishes and international fare, a bar, and a separate hut in the grounds for breakfast. The leafy tropical grounds host an outdoor swimming pool with decking.
The standard guest rooms are bright and modern, each equipped with air-conditioning, complimentary Wifi, cable TV, fridge, iron, hairdryer, safe and a private bathroom with eco-friendly amenities. Meanwhile the Riverside rooms also feature a balcony with views over the river or the tropical garden. The property is affiliated to a neighbouring hotel, the Torarica, and you'll have access to the latter's facilities including a swimming pool, tennis courts, spa and gym.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"We liked the cable car, and the imitation waterfall at the top."SG, London
I've spent a lot of time in Latin America over the last 17 years both on tours and independently. This was only my second trip with JLA but they really are the best with regard to local experience and tour leaders who both know and love the areas they cover.NF, Bath
"What can I say other then 'paradise on earth'".CM, Barnes
Licia our guide was excellent as was the driver.JR, Barnet
Wonderful hosts provided a fantastic welcome. I would recommend them to anyone staying in Trinidad. Good food, great location and My only gripe and it was very minor would be the shower facilities - absence of water pressure.DM Edinburgh
It is the first time we have travelled with a tour operator, rather than independently. The tailor-made option suited us so well, as we could devise our own itinerary, so we had all the experience of travelling independently but without the hassle. (Travelled to Peru)NO, Ruthin
"Best of the hotels where we stayed in the Lakes area. Excellent restaurant with v reasonable prices, nice bar. Helpful staff."MS, Bath
“Lapa Rios quite possibly the best place we have ever stayed! Location, facilities, staff, everything - magical.”MS, Surrey
Great nightSS, Newcastle upon tyne
Good location within walking distance of the centre. Rooms were very well equipped.CJ, Twickenham
We had the most wonderful trip. All arrangements went to plan and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing a part of the world we hadn't visited before. As well as gaining a real flavour of Central America and the Mayan culture we kayaked, canoed, fished, snorkelled, swam with sharks, cycled, visited Mayan ruins, villages and the market at Chiticastananga. Throughout the trip we experienced excellence in service with everyone we encountered. We loved the variety of it all and yet we also had time each day to relax and read.LM, Reading
Again, great setting/views and again, much preferred our choice than a downtown based hotel as first recommended. Good shuttle service. Good room.CS, London
Max went out of his way to ensure we had full info on what we could do in each location and followed up in detail on ones individuals were interested in. Thus meeting the different needs of group members. This was particularly helpful with so short a time in each place. He was also good at telling us about the history and political situation in each country and sharing his enthusiasm for the region.JD, London
This by far was the most relaxing and calming stay for the last part of our stay in Brasil. The Pousada rooms were compact and comfortable with separate sitting out/ bar/ and infinity pool over looking the bay with magnificent views. Hotel restaurant served fine dining but was more expensive than eating out in Buzios centre a short walk away.AC, Saffron walden
"The staff were extremely attentive, the lodge is beautiful, and we loved canoeing down the river to San Ignacio. Great tarantulas and iguanas, plus lovely birds."WW, Reading
Really pleased with our visit - the timing was perfect as we are sure Cuba will change dramatically in coming years. Go now to experience its full and distinctive charm.VR, London
This was a holiday I have wanted to do for many years and it did not fail to deliver. Our tour leader was professional,knowledgeable, understanding and integrated with the local guides to ensure received the best service and information.The recommendations we were given for restaurants, optional tours, tango evenings,sorting money etc were spot on. And finally, the visits to various ice cream parlours for dessert after group meals was most welcome!GM, Fairford
"Very good, beautiful city and tour adapted for us to visit Neruda's house."JL, Richmond
Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams? (Tennyson). I had long dreamt of travelling to South America, so I booked and went, and my dreams came true. The dreams were wondrous while they lasted and although now inevitably they start to fade, into their place comes a welter of brilliant, enduring, magical memories. And so the theme of this letter is thank you JLA!PM, Hampstead
Alexandra was excellent in all areas. Both on the phone and by email she was efficient and her manner was professional but friendly. I was particularly impressed by the promptness of her response to queries.HL, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Overall it was a great experienceIR,
"A unique amazing place to stay and all staff were very friendly and helpful always with a smile."JS, Harrow
Most memorable aspects: “The airport landing at Baracoa - seems as if you are going to land in the sea - such is the short runway and surrounding sea...Baracoa lifestyleGH, Buxton
Adequate with pro-active service.HB, Bristol
We very much enjoyed our day trip to the Mountain of Tronador whilst at Bariloche.MG, Ongar
The deteriorating condition of Lake Atitlan is of concern. Tourists are contributing to the pollution but the loss of future tourism due to its state will be negative to the country. Guatemala needs to deal with this.AA
Highlights:- The friendliness of the people and the wildlife.ME
Interesting place. Lovely sunset. Good food - more variety than most.GN, Kingsbridge
It was a terrific, well-designed tour to some of the most impressive historic sites in the world. The local expert guides were of a particularly high standard and our overall tour guide was excellent even giving each of us a going-home present from her home country Guatemala.DP, Chichester
