You love the flair of the jungle? You love to wake up and fall asleep with the concert of birds, monkeys and wind in the palmtrees? Or you love a cool swim in the Suriname River, an exciting ride by canoe and stand-up-paddle or enjoy Saturday's Barbecue, Sunday's Lunch Buffett and the daily Happy Hour at the restaurant surrounded by a beautyful scenery of flowers and old shadowing trees? Well - doesn't matter whether you come for a day, stay at night in one of the pretty houses or join in with your Overlander Car for a break before hitting the road again you are most welcome by Noel the owner and his crew. We paid 15 US$ per night including our big rig and us. Showers are under constructions. Electricity, laundry and drinking water are available. We just loved the place, relaxed after 18 months driving through South-Amerika. Thank you for the lovely time.
To arrive at this Marina Resor after a transatlantic crossing was really like a DREAM! I couldn't believe there would be such a wonderful and safe place in "the middle of the jungle" to spend the end of our year and keep our boat!
We were so warmly welcomed by Noel and the staff, SO friendly and competent, they were always there to help us and really made us feel home. Thank you so much.
The venue is gorgeous, with a outstanding garden, and really beautiful indonesian style houses that looked so comfortable!!
What impressed me the most was the hight standart of comfort/facilities combined with the location, so wild and full of life force.
We spent new years at the Marina and im sure it was one of the best of my life! The day after, the first, this venue, which is always so calm and peaceful, was vibrating in celebration, full of guests from town, amazing live music and dance and games...
As the place is so special, who comes to this Marina Resort is also special, its like a magnet....so we made amazing friends there! we had pleasant barbecues, happy hours, and late-night-wine-pirate-talkings hahah
We deeply enjoy the resting time as well as many aventures around! there's place for everything....
Even if I had pictured something to expect in Suriname, our staying in Waterland Marina Resort was beyond the expectations!
Great location on the suriname river, surrounded by jungle. The staff is impeccable, and made us feel welcome from the first moment. We arrived by sailing yacht after transatlantic voyage, welcome drinks were offered, the owner Noel and manager Don made sure we had everything we needed. We arrived the day before Christmas and there were different events arranged for the holidays. The restaurant has a simple menu of snacks during the week and on the weekend hosts BBQ lunches. New year's day there was a massive celebration with a local band and dancers and a funny Dutch tradition of jumping into the water in group for the first splash. This place feels like a small paradise, with beautiful landscaping, Bali houses, a playground for kids and toys for the Water. A bit out-of town, but it's easy to arrange a car or a driver with the friendly staff. Great place for families, great place for sailing yachts. Well constructed Floating pontoon with water and electricity, and new pontoons to be added in the future. Recommend the marina resort without hesitation to anyone passing through Suriname, the hospitality is superfriendly , the location is beautiful and the people who stay here are very interesting and nice.
One of the best place i have stayed in surinam with my family the host is such à wonderful person à heart warwing and kind man very close To his staff also very nice staff makes you Feel more like family than guest the resort is so beautiful and peaceful feels like heaven having a hard time leaving (sad) will come again .
We stayed at the resort for 3 days and 2 nights. We had a wonderful time. All comforts from home and the quietness of the outdoors. Hospitality was truly amazing not only by the owner but also all staff. They were always willing to help with whatever is needed. I am a vegetarian and they were able to accommodate my food choices.
The houses are well taken care of and clean.
There is so much to do here: biking, hiking, water biking, kanoeing, paddle boarding, drinking and enjoying good food.
I highly recommend this place.
