Very helpful staff with awesome 24hrs. room service. It is possible to reach everywhere in the city including all the famous interest points in Foz do Iguaçú, Puerto Iguazú and Ciudad del Leste thru the travel service service desk in the main lobby. Modern, clean, quiet rooms with free wi-fi which kept me connected with good bandwidth/speed for all three... More

This newly built hotel is absolutely soul-less. Food is dreadful - either mass buffets (mostly luke warm) or one small bar meals with only fried food and no vegetarian options; beer but no wines. Televisions blare out on inappropriate programmes to fill the lack of atmosphere and guests - I do not want to watch wrestling at any time, let... More

Dear Sir, Thank you about your comments, I´ll check about the warm buffet, this situation cannot happen. About the mini bar, we have cereal bar, and the wines, we have very special menu that you can order at the room service.

The hotel itself is nice, though far from the city center (though we knew this - it was for a conference), and the restaurant was good. The pool area was very nice too. However, our room - room 342 - was dark (because of trees obscuring the window/balcony) and in particular it was very musty - smelt of damp and... More

Was there for a seminar and used the weekend with my family. Really appreciated it. The rooms are very clean and clear. Very good air conditioner and a big bed (king size). Was big enough to get a small bed for my daughter as well. Common places, swimming pool are very comfortable with a nice bar service in the surroundings.... More

This is a very traditional hotel in Foz do Iguaçu. They have a very famous New Year's Eve. I cannot say this is a complete resort, although they have decent pools, a Jacuzzi, one tennis court, a small kid's place and a backyard. Renovated rooms are good, but quite small; the old ones people say are not nice. Food is... More

The only 'resort' aspect is the 2 pools, no spa. Very small rooms but that is not unusual in Brazil - at least we had a queen bed rather than 2 singles! Our room was neat and clean. When some fellow travelers complained about cleanliness and odors, they were quickly moved to a room in the newer section. Restaurant was... More

It is a resort if you count 2 pools and a not working well hot tub and tennis court as a resort. Half the rooms are very small and look like a low rate motel. Others are larger. Non of the staff speaks anything like fluent English and there is nothing in walking distance except a Shell station with an... More

Of the five hotels I stayed in during the World Cup, this one was the nicest. The rooms are small, but clean. The restaurant was excellent. The staff was friendly and professional. My only real complaints: the Wi-Fi didn't work very well in the room. I had to go out in the hall. Also, the location isn't great. There isn't... More

Large, old fashioned, good staff, poor breakfast and just an average hotel. Depending on your trip, the stay worth the fare. But avoid high expectations for a hotel built to receive huge travelling groups.

We spent just one night here while visiting Iguazu Falls (Oct. 30). The exterior was undergoing renovation at the time, but inside it was quiet, spotlessly clean, and refreshing. The courtyard area near the pool is lovely with well-tended orchids growing on nearly every tree. The breakfast buffet was second to none - the best I've ever enjoyed. I woke... More
