I booked this hotel because I thought they had a Hot Springs pool. I thought "Thermas" in the name of the hotel was because they had a Hot Spring pool. I had booked Mabu Thermas earlier and It happened that the "Suite Master with Hot Tub" was on sale for the days we selected and I ended canceling Mabu Thermas. According to the tour guide, Mabu Thermas is the only hotel in Foz do Iguacu with Minerals pool.
The room: It was REALLY a nice large room, with two queen beds, flat screen TV, large bathroom with separated shower and toilet. Safety was included. A must. We also got nice bath robes. It was almost perfect if the balcony had a better view. All I could see from the window were trees blocking the view. Like right there, very close to the window. Note that the balcony is just half balcony. I am sure the rooms with Pool View would be much nicer.
Front desk: Very poor service for check-in. They did not explain anything about the hotel amenities. They did not say a word about any of them; and they had so much for kids, as well as a nice library and game room that I found on the last day just before the check-out.
The pools: It was nice, but far from great. And it was disappointing that the indoor pool was closed. And again, it is not a Hot Spring.
Location: Very far from the Falls and airport. It was closer to the Itaipu Binacional and Paraguay's border. Nothing to do around.
Restaurant and room service: We ate lunch at the restaurant and ordered room service for 3 nights. It was average in taste and a bit expensive. But without a car, hard to go around and find good restaurants since it is far from everything. The breakfast included in the price was just good, not great. The quality was very good, but I had better breakfast in much smaller hotels in Brazil before.
Overall: Rooms are nice, good hotel, but far from been called "Resort". I saw some constructions around. Maybe they are expanding to become a Resort.
