Compared to some hotels in SUR where service and amenities are - to say the least - lacking, the new Marriott Courtyard is a dream. Fast check-in, spotless rooms, decent internet, good food. As of spring 2010 this is a nearly brand new hotel, so it definitely sparkles.
Really the only downside here is that it's a generic Marriott property with absolutely no charm or personality whatsoever. The room looks like every other newer Marriott room around the world. That's kind of a shame when you travel to such an out-of-the-way place but get no local pizazz for the trouble. But for some travelers, access to a reliable and comfortable hotel may be the priority in which case you are unlikely to be disappointed.
Small quibbles: no wireless internet available during our stay: had to plug in to the supplied cable connection. At least it was free. Also, hot water was a bit spotty and wake up call came 15 minutes late.
The Toraricas, Spanhoek, and Krasnapolsky are all within easy walking distance of the action in Parimaribo.... the Marriott is a bit further afield, requiring a taxi or the free shuttle to see things on foot. The $10 airport transfer is a very good deal.
