Fair sized room -478 . Nice and clean . Nice breakfast with among other things lots of fruit and bread.
Poor wifi-connection - unable to send an email with photo even in downscaled size.
The location and concept of the hotel is primarily suitable for families with children who want ' all-inclusive ' . Less suitable for adult couples who want to explore the city.
Far from everything. Everything you need - for example bottled water for brushing teeth - must be purchased in one of the resort's 5 restaurants to restaurant-prices, as there is no opportunity to shop locally within about 5 miles.
A very poor service : My wife got ill - heatstroke - on an excursion to the waterfall, and dared only eat fruit and bread for dinner. I turned to all the restaurants in the hotel to buy fresh fruit and bread (which was plentiful at breakfast), but no one wanted to grant my prayer – everyone told me to buy a dish from the menu.
As the hotel is placed ‘in the middle of no-where ' - no ATM nearby, and we had just arrived from Argentina , carrying only Argentine peso and U.S. $ , I went to the frontdesk to ask if I on my Mastercard or my Visa card could receive some local currency , in order to take a taxi downtown to shop necessities for my wife. My prayer was flatly refused stating that the hotel (which is located on the border between Brazil / Argentina / Paraguay and allegedly primarily feed on tourists, who comes to watch the magnificant nearby waterfall) can not withdraw local currency for the visitors. Inside the resort, you can do all your purchases by showing your room card!
When I went out on the square in front of the hotel I was approached by a friendly man José Antonio Arruda (firstname.lastname@example.org ), who asked if I was looking for something. I explained to him the situation, that I was only in possession of foreign currency , and that I needed to find a supermarket with an ATM so I could buy dinner for his wife . He stated that he was taxi-driver, that he wanted to drive me to a supermarket with ATM, and that he also accepted to be paid in foreign currency.
Upon arrival at the supermarket, he would not hear of payment for this trip, but insisted on waiting at the exit for my moneyexchange and purchasing . After my shopping , José drove me the about 5 miles back to the hotel. The price José asked for, driving me downtown , waiting for my purchase and driving me back to the hotel was rediculous 35 Rias. Five Stars Plus to José Arruda , but Two Stars Minus for the Service provided to Mabu
