I was very surprised to see that this resort now has an infinity pool! It has filtered water in it from the river and gives you a much safer swimming experience. Swimming in the water from the river, although those parts are netted against piranha's still gave me an iffy feeling. The resort is wonderful at night with a fresh...

Takes about a 1 hour drive from Paramaribo by car or bus. Located along the Suriname river. For those who doesn't want to travel too far to enjoy the nature of Suriname this resort is a perfect choice. The road from Paramaribo to Overbridge is paved. This resort also offers boattrips to nearby villages and even a historical site called...

Not at all as described in the pictures in the brochure. Staff was nice, but only 1 kind man acted interested in the guests. The "restaurant" was like a sports canteen. Absolutely dull surroundings. The pool is nice and it's lit at night. Very basic accommodation for western standards, and not much to do except for visiting the "Jodensavanne". For...

A new swimming pool is installed, which is a good alternative to swimming in the river. During weekdays it is very quit. The restaurant food is ok, so you don't need to bring your own food. The cabanas are nice, but can use some restoration. The balcony is ideal to do morning stretches. They are busy trying to get TV...

Overbridge river resort is a great place to relax. The rooms are in a 80's theme. There is Airco, a shower and acceptable wifi speed. There are also enough tours and places to visit. The tourguides are nice and can tell a lot about the flora and fauna.

Tropical paradise, beautiful beach, fabulous place for a holiday with family or friends. We had a great time and everyone went out of there way to make it a great holiday. You can either stay in the individual cabins, which are located a few steps from the beach or you can rent one of the cabanas for camping with friends...

My husband and I have travelled all over the world, and indeed there are some other beautiful places in the world. At Overbridge we found the serenity fantastic, the river was nice to swim in, the food excellent and the service was excellent. We expecially loved the bamie, the sweet and sour fish, the fried banana, the soto soup. The...

Try to get a place in the back by the canal if you want some peace and quiet. The hammock huts looked like fun, if you're going with a big group of people. There are a swimming beach, volleyball court, restaurant, etc. but otherwise not too much to do. I stayed here for one night on the way back from...

After a week in Suriname this has been our favorite place. The air conditioning is wonderful, the cabins big and very clean. The atmosphere is calming. We enjoyed swimming in the river.the food is basic but we love Indonesian food and the satay is amazing!

“Ask for the newer cabana's. I had one of the older ones (#12). It can be VERY noisy at times because there is a some kind of a pump or engine running on road opposite the cabana's.”
