“A very nice & warm place to stay (with a little puppy)!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

We stayed here for just one night, but we didn't want to go. We went because of a reservation elsewhere, otherwise we had stayed in this warm & beautiful B&B! Maria is such a kind & lovely person with a little dog (3 months old)! The rooms are great and the interior is lovely. The breakfast is good (with homemade jam!!). If you want to go to the waterfalls, ask her for transport. In short, we felt welcome at Maria's.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

We stayed for 4 nights at the Marica B&B in early October 2010. We stayed in the room with the en-suite bathroom and balcony. The room was of a good size, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was also a good size with a walk in shower. The proprietor, Maria, was friendly, happy to help and speaks English. Breakfast is an arrangement of fresh fruit, fresh fruit juices and coffee/tea; cakes and breads; ham and cheese, timed to suit the guests.
The only slight downside is that Marica is located a fair walk from the centre Foz do Iguassu, (although we were aware of this when booking and this is clear from the website) but this should not deter you from staying at Marica. During the day the walk is fine but in the evening you may prefer to get a taxi.
Maria can arrange transport to the Brazilian and Argentinean national parks for visiting the Iguacu Falls, as well as other local attractions. It is also possible to use public transport for this (which we did to visit the Argentinean side). Maria is also able to recommend restaurants in the town.
Given the cost, whilst it is located out of the centre of town, it represents excellent value for money and is removed from the big groups of tourists in the hotels in the town centre.

The Marica B&B is an awesome place to stay if you're looking for quality, clean, homely accommodation at a great price... it doesn't have the amenities of a top-end hotel like business centre or a gym, but if you can survive without these the place is cozy, relaxing, with delicious breakfast.

You can see the love that the owner, Maria, puts into the place in everything from the decoration to the home-made jams at breakfast. Moreover, while the place was already very nice in August 2010 when we stayed there, Maria is clearly working hard to keep improving it.

We booked this room because of good ratings online and I really question where the high ratings are coming from?

The room was very basic and small, not even a mirror on the wall. We had a shared bathroom across the hall with another room. The hall led directly to the front entrance allowing no privacy from the main entrance ( where the computer was located).
Breakfast was fruit cheese and bread.

Even if our experience had been better , I really couldn't recommend this hotel specifically due to its location . It is difficult to find ...our driver had a very hard time finding it and asked many different people for directions. The nearest place to eat is the mall , which is an unpleasant 15 minute walk along a dark busy road through a dodgey neighborhood.
We felt very isolated here and even at a cost of $75.00 a night ( which for a shared bath was enough to pay) wouldn't come back.

We saw much better hotels which would have been a better choice.

From the initial email contact to leaving Maria was fantastic. The transfer from the airport she arranged was with Falls Vision and they offered us a two day package around the falls (1: Argentinian side, 2: Brazilian side and bird park). Our personal guide, Clarice, was full of knowledge and a great sence of humour and ensured we never queued. (PS: Do the boat ride on the Argentinian side). Back at the B&B Maria recommended excellent restaurants,provided a superb breakfast (when you wanted it) and was full of advice on the local area.

Had a lovely time at Marica Bed & Breakfast. We were looked after very well by Maria in her lovely modern and beautifully decorated home. Breakfasts were excellent and very generous, including home-made Brazilian treats! Rooms were a good size and beds very good - the romantic suite is well worth the upgrade, if it's available! Foz do Iguassu has a lot to offer and Maria was very helpful in recommending restaurants and shows, and making reservations and arranging taxis - made our stay very easy and enjoyable! There's a large shopping mall including a supermarket within walking distance but you'll probably want to take a taxi or bus to the central areas of Foz - there's a bus stop a few minutes walk from Marica B&B and the buses proved very regular. Definitely recommend Marica B&B and would choose this B&B again.

I chose to stay here because I wanted somewhere small and friendly. It was perfect. I had emailed Maria directly and asked her advice on getting to her as I was arriving at 9pm. I also wanted some advice on tours. Maria emailed me back and said she would organise an airport transfer for me and help with tours when I got here. Everything was great. Roberto was waiting for me on arrival and even spoke a little English.

The next day Maria organised me to head off with another couple who were staying there to see the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. We stopped at the bird park on the way. Fantastic. We spent three hours there!!! I also did a helicopter flight across the road from the bird park and it really got what I was going to see into perspective for me. Note that they only take cash there not credit cards and it cost 180 Reis

Oops sorry i am meant to be reviewing Marica B & B not Foz!!!

Maria is a beautiful person and nothing is too much trouble to organise. Breakfast is light and yummy and the coffee is good! The house is in a quiet residential area and the bed was comfortable!! Maria has bottled water there for you and the room was serviced daily. Each room can be locked and you take the key with you each day. She also let me use her washing machine to wash my clothes. The wireless internet works throughout the house and in the bedrooms.

You can walk to the shopping center easily and one night I took a taxi back and it only cost 7R. It is large modern with good shops and a big food place on the top where you can eat dinner or take it back to Maria's and eat there.

I spent three days here and it was perfect ( one day Brazilian side, one day Argentinian side and three markers and on the third day Itapu dam and a relaxing time shopping There is also a Buddist temple and other attractions but I didn't have time.

If you want to feel you are staying with a friend I can really recommend Marica B & B.
