“A much nicer hotel than it needs to be!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This hotel is 400m from one of the great sites of the world and in the national park - it is the obvious place to stay. That said, it is a reasonable family hotel who were very helpful (we had a shower problem and they immediately changed us to another room). The food was good enough and fairly priced and the grounds are lovely. We had a wonderful 24h stay there and went to the falls and the bird park (both *****). At the falls, only do the boat ride if you want wet fun and a memorable photo: you don't really get close enough to the main falls but you do get to see the Argentinian side, albeit from a distance.

Stayed at the San Martin in July 2013. Excellent location for the Brazilian side of the falls, within walking distance. Very good rooms, and excellent grounds to walk around. Food was very good, excellent selection for buffer in the morning and evening. On a negative, the staff were a little reactive. Has a small childrens room with TV and pool table which needs a lock of paint.

Overall a good place to stay in Foz.

Nice hotel. Great setting and very convenient to Iguacu Falls. Made the mistake of eating there as arrived after 9pm in the evening. We went to the restaurant as it closed at 10.30pm. It is like a canteen with most people going for the all you can eat buffet. My girlfriend and I opted for the al a carte, ordering spaghetti carbonara and penne in a four cheese sauce. They were both awful and only managed a couple of bites. The waiter did not even ask if there was a problem clearing the table like it was completely normal. I would have no problem recommending the hotel as a place to stay, if visiting the falls. good rooms, great shower, but the food was a complete joke.

We stayed recently in this hotel for 2 nights as part of a group trip to Sth. America. The room was clean, modern in decor and comfortable. The check-in and check-out was totally too bureaucratic. The Bar was well stocked and served an appealing food menu. Service was a bit scattered and slow. Breakfast lacked imagination with lack-lustre food. The dining-room was featureless , too big and impersonal. The corridors and the hotel interior was squeaky clean. The hotel is set in a beautiful rain-forest setting with pool and outdoor dining areas. Unfortunately the weather was somewhat inclement and we could not enjoy the pool experience. As the hotel almost backs on the Bird Park we woke each morning to the magnificent sound of Toucans and Macaws.Very convenient to the Falls but a long distance from the town. Our visit to San Martin was e very enjoyable experience.

I stayed two nights at the San Martin primarily due to it's location very near the Brazil entrance to the falls (walking distance). The hotel is pleasant, the room was nice with good A/C, comfortable bed, and a decent shower. I ate in the restaurant one night (off the menu instead of the buffet) and it was okay. I ate in the bar the second night and the pizza hit the spot.

The shuttle picked me up from the airport as advertised.

The only negative was at check-in - they only had one clerk and she was both checking people in and answering all kinds of questions, so the process took awhile.

If I was to return I'd stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights, and we're expecting a high standard, we were disappointed in some respects, our room was quite lovely, clearly newly refurbished, modern clean and a nice shower room. The setting for the hotel is also lovely, with nice gardens, good walks and a large swimming pool, however the pool was not as clean as it could be, and the area surrounding it was littered with bits of food, cigarette ends etc. I would not go in the pool as a result though others did. It had a lovely spa, and I had a nice massage at a reasonable price. The bar was quite nice but the staff a little quiet and reticent, though we had no complaints about the service. The dining room experience however was farcical...it was presided over by the 'manager' who behaved as if he was controlling a camp, he was the only one who would take orders, and seemed to be in a almighty rush so there was no customer service, we experienced him taking our order whilst talking to two members of staff about other orders, not very professional, there were plenty of staff but he seemed to be the only one who could take orders so the remaining staff stood about waiting to be told what to do by him, so everything was slowed down....the food was ok if uninspiring. Lastly we had to get up to leave at 5 am to catch a flight, we knew that breakfast would not start until later than then so we asked if we could have a packed sandwich to take with us the answer was a clear NO, they didn't do that! very stranger as they did advertise 24 hour room service! If this hotel was better managed it would be lovely.........as it is the only good side was the room as for the rest not impressed at all.

We took the package deal that this hotel offers. Highly recommend if you want to see the falls from the brazil side and you MUST visit the bird park and the staff were great and organized for us to take a day trip to the Argentina side of the falls. Also as part of the package breakfasts and dinners were included for duration of our stay. Rooms were beautiful and the hotel grounds in general were fantastic. Had a great time.
