Our experience in the hotel was very poor. The room was old, very dark, and we did not have a feeling that it's clean. Pool was not clean either (leaves on top, water was not clean).Breakfast was very basic. The high charge is not justified by the service. Location is good thou, as a public bus going to the waterfalls can picked us up just in front of the hotel.

5k outside town so if you like wandering round local bars and shops this hotel is not for you. Definitely needs a refurb as it looks and is very tired. Nice friendly helpful staff. A good sized swimming poll for those wanting to swim. Internet works but only in reception.

Very unsafe hotel, while we were having dinner we had a robbery inside the room, several electronic devices (netbook, camera, cell phone) and cash were taken away. We realized that strangers come into the hotel easily and there are not security cameras but in the front desk.
The administration of the hotel did not take any responsability in this case, they did not present any report to the police, but we as clients went to the police and got the formal certified declaration.

This hotel is located quite far out of the tiny little town, Puerto Iguasu. You are at the mercy of infrequent taxis. There are no reasonable restaurants within walking distance. There is nothing within walking distance. The hotel is rather primitive. It wouldn't rate a 1 star In the US, let alone a 4 star that this hotel claims. The grounds are lovely, green and lush, but one doesn't sleep in the lovely grounds. The bathtub needs a thorough cleaning to get rid of the mildew. I did kill a resident cockroach. The furniture is old, scratched and cheap. This hotel is for local tourists, maybe.

This family run hotel had everything we needed - close to the airport and the national park. We got up early to do a bird watching tour and the staff set up a mini buffet so we could grab a 6 am breakfast. The food is delicious especially the fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast. We received an upgraded room which was clean and spacious. The pool is set in a nice garden with lots of birds to watch. Wifi works consistently although you need to sit in the lobby to use it.

We stayed here for three nights in a master suite. Its a large lightfilled room away from the main hotel block, clean and a nice room to spend time in if you want to. The pool is excellent and snacks available out here as well. We found the breakfast very good and plenty of food. Dinner was also excellent- a buffet style and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and spoke english. All tours pickup from the hotel, and its only a short cheap taxi ride from the small town.

Room Tip: I would recommend the standard rooms only if you were on a budget as the main walkway to the restaur...
