Located in the middle of the unpenetrable jungle, 100 miles away from any closest human settlement, lies this truly unique resort. My family and I traveled to various locations in Suriname and this one stood out head and shoulders above the rest. Obviously, due to its remote location the accommodations are not super luxurious (as any material is flown in on tiny planes), so don't go in expecting a 5-star luxury resort with marble tile floors.
The rooms are obviously slightly basic, but are nice, fresh and clean. The newer built suites in particular seemed very nice. (Rooms on the far side of the main lodge were warm at night and did not have air-conditioning, which I did think could be improved)
With regards to service, my general impression was that Suriname culturally did not stand out when it came to providing good service (usually very slow and not particularly friendly), this place however was a refreshing outlier as opposed to the national trend. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and actively trying to make your stay a pleasant one. The coordinators know everybody by name including their food restrictions and allergies - all by heart. They tailor make the day trips to every ones expectations and particular requirements, which was awesome when traveling with small children.
The food here was also by far the best I encountered, compared to other resorts or hotels, offering delicious local cuisine.
