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.
The whole trip was memorable - it's impossible to pick just one part. The Cuban people I met were friendly and warm - it was good to practice my Spanish, and their love of music and dance, and care for each other is an example for us all.LA, London
Highlights: “Locks on the Panama canal and Panamax vessels up close.”MC, Fulham
"This was a very interesting tour, great to see the history of the vineyard."AW, Yarm
We didn't make extensive use of their facilities but the massage was excellent and they made us feel very welcome.RB, London
It looked like an oasis in the middle of an unlikely areaKT, Andover
Fabulous all round
"Got there at 7pm and left the next day at 6.45 but had a fab big-bedded room with a super bathroom and plenty of hot water. Room in a brand new block. Good dinner too."JR, Truro
Highlights: “Coffee region of Colombia - unexpectedly beautiful”.PJ, London SW17
“Sea kayaking in San Blas was beautiful - exceeded expectations”JK, Polegate
We found the travel arrangements worked seamlessly, not a single hitch all the way through the month. And having flights at civilized times of day was a bonus we didn't appreciate until we got there.AS, Frome
Most memorable experience: "Difficult to choose one! Sunrise boat trip on the Laguna del Tesoro with mist coming off the water and variety of bird life, watching the sun go down behind mogotes in Vinales with a mojito or humming birds flying around while having breakfast in Trinidad. Or even dancing the conga with the rest of the audience at the Buenvista Social Club!...The holiday was fantastic - every place we went to has its own unique character and feel so we felt that we had experienced at least something of what Cuba is about. The contrasts between the way of life in the cities and the countryside were extraordinary - mobile phones, brand name clothes, immaculately manicured and painted nails to a single ox drawn plough. Stunning landscapes and views through to urban decay and piles of rubbish in the streets. It's an experience that we thoroughly enjoyed and won't forget."AW, High Wycombe
Outstanding.Great destination knowledge. Great ability to match products with our own preferences. I've taken a lot of private tours over the years and never dealt with anyone better.JS, Newbury
"Cuba exceeded my expectations : it is beautiful architecturally and naturally, fascinating historically, politically and economically and so full of life. Thanks to JLA for letting me get under the skin of Cuba just a little."HF, London
Nice location in the middle of Aguas Calientes. Staff very helpful and food service was very good.CC, Bristol
Loved the hot springs and the llama pen.BJ, Belfast
We loved this place. Staff very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Food very good. Idyllic location.SE, London
A lovely day in wonderful scenery with a good guide.MM, Holt
The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and understanding of the altitude.DD, Uxbridge
"Beautifully designed hotel well laid out."DH, Newton Abbot
This is the big one. Lots of holidaymakers from Cancun at the site as it is aften included in their tour programme. Nevertheless, it is still a must to visit because of the scale of the place.KJ, Harlow
The Copan Valley in Honduras, where the ruins are situated, has wild scarlet macaws flying around, which are magnificent. Nearby, Macaw Mountain park is an excellent attraction for bird watchers, with experts providing information about the breeding programme that is repopulating the valley with macaws. We saw toucans in the wild here, in addition to those in cages, and there is also home grown coffee available; we'd have liked longer here.MT, AUE
A very nice hotel in a good location. Facilities are fairly limited but the rooms are nice as is the pool area. Staff were very helpful.PC, London
"The food and the restaurant were excellent and we could not understand why so few people chose to dine there."MS, Leicester
Ecuador is perhaps a most underrated country for a great visitor experience. The people are great and helpful and, for anyone with an interest in the natural world, there is so much variety to see and enjoy.IB
JLA made life very easy. We knew the places we wanted to go, and MaryAnne helped us find a schedule that suited our needs perfectly, providing advice on length of stay in each area and where to stay. She was happy to repeatedly tweak the itinerary according to our latest ideas/whims. Great knowledge, great service.DR, London
Roberto laid back, charming, a professional to his fingers tips. A lovely man.MK, Southampton
“All of the hotels were extremely good and we were fortunate to be upgraded on two occasions. However I would like to say that the Tambo del Inka far exceeded our expectations, it was a really beautiful hotel in a great setting with the most pleasant staff and wonderful food.”KB, Alnwick
Nice restaurant. Good location near metro station.SD,
"The guides at explora are great with sustainable, low-impact travel, always picking up trash if they spot it (even if it is not from the group). I tried on my part to keep things in pdf format, only printing those items that are absolutely necessary. The explora group, as well as Hostal de La Rabida both encourage less waste by not using bottled water. Explora even supplies us with reusable bottles for water!"YC, Singapore
Wow - great day! Good guide who accomodated us plus some Spanish travellers equally well. Boat trip was great to do as included.EB, Maidstone
If you only can see one natural wonder in the world it should probably be the falls.PD, Birmingham
