Paramaribo, Suriname (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
The whole Caribbean seems to be celebrating at the same time with the recent Carifesta XI just wrapping up and the Courtyard Paramaribo earning a TripAdvisor award.
The hotel in Suriname recently received a 2013 Certificate of Excellence, putting the property in an elite group of hotels that meet the high standards. Hotels that receive a Certificate of Excellence must meet a minimum of four out of five possible star ratings as reviewed by TripAdvisor customers. Other factors, such as volume of reviews, are also considered. Approximately only 10 percent of all hotels on TripAdvisor meet the criteria.
The timing of this award is perfect for the Paramaribo hotel, which is just minutes from the site of Carifesta XI. The festival, which each year celebrates the culture of Caribbean islands and brings together the diverse and rich history of the region, took place Aug. 16-25, 2013.
As part of this year’s festivities, the Carifesta XI hosted a number of events throughout the nine-day celebration. Attendees were able to watch theater productions and unique dances that showcased the culture of indigenous peoples as well as browse markets and trade fair that offered a unique opportunity to buy a hand-made souvenir. Attendees also stopped by the film festival that showcased the work of aspiring artists around the region. Other events included youth focus programs, super concerts and various workshops. Memorable spectacles took place at the opening and closing ceremonies, so visitors were entertained throughout the entire event.
After enjoying the unique festivities of Carifesta, many visitors returned to the Courtyard Paramaribo hotel. Blending local style with modern comforts, the Paramaribo hotel features spacious accommodations offering LCD televisions, comfortable beds, plush linens, in-room coffeemakers and complimentary Internet access, among other conveniences. Just a five-minute walk from the city’s historic and government districts, the Suriname hotel was the perfect choice for visitors attending Carifesta XI.
