“Location and Convenience to Falls”
Reviewed October 15, 2007

When you come to Iguazu, you come to see the spectacular falls. The Sheraton is the only hotel located in the Argentina park where you can see the falls from your falls view room and walk to the falls circuits. You can get to the falls before everyone else (at 8 am when the park opens), and you can stay later since you don't have to worry about catching the train back to the park entrance. You don't have to take the bus to the park entrance from an outside hotel then take the train to the circuits. And there's the unforgettable view of the falls from the hotel. Yes, the rooms should be larger and better furnished for the price charged. And the lobby, restaurant and bar could be more modern and luxurious. But we were surprised by the excellent quality of the food in the restaurant and the new health club, pool and spa facilities. We spent 2 days and 2 nights in Iguazu and recommend the boat ride, walking both circuits, moon-light walk, and going to the Brazilian side of the falls (arranged at the hotel without visa requirements).

Our views on the hotel are probably similar to those in other reviews - a fantastic location, particularly if you have a falls facing room (worth the extra money), but the hotel needs some updating. We asked for an early check-in, and it was available for both rooms (late morning arrival). The reception/concierge staff were always friendly and obliging throughout our stay.

The view of the falls from the rooms is stunning. The hotel is ideally located on the Argentinean side of the falls where is far more to see/walk than on the Brazilian side. The closest falls are less than 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. The food was fine - not great and not bad. The shopping centre attached to the hotel was a little disapppointing.

The rooms were OK, although the air con was ineffective (apparently a hotel-wide problem while we were there) and the water pressure in the shower was very weak. There was a bit of a smell in the bath room from the floor drain.

Even though aspects of the hotel were disappointing (and it is expensive), we'd stay there again, just for the views from the room and the proximity to the falls, which are just spectacular.

The location of this hotel is unrivalled with the view to the falls is unforgettable. Its expensive but worth it as a single visit: for the view and to have the easy walking access to the Argentine side of
the falls. The hotel which has been undergoing renovation for some times falls well short of 5 a star Sheraton Hotel, as a club member there were no discernable benefits unlike at other hotels in the chain. The rooms are small and in need of a serious update and de-clutter, the wardrobe is a poor DIY job, bathroom is Ok lots of small
issues like cheap toiletries in Sheraton bottles: TIP: use a plastic card in the eclectic slot to keep the room cool for when you return. But it’s the view you pay for. We arrived at 3pm to find our falls room view ( it’s the only option if you go all that way) room was not
ready and after being offered a small glass of juice was told to wait
45 minutes. We had afternoon tea which was leftovers from breakfast, but what a view. Service by the staff is complacent, as the place is busy and plagued by group travellers and quite a few kids ( sorry it sounds so snobby). The food is buffet style in a canteen environment.
We asked for the a la carte service was dumping in amongst the general mêlée and the food and service was the worst quality and price of the 3 weeks we spent in South America. Grab the bus into town for something more real. 2 nights is enough, our bags were riffled at Iguazu airport, a problem that is common place and the attitude is well that’s what happens here. We flew from BA by Argentine Airways which was easy and cheap, but they were indifferent
about the bags being opened and ordinary items like shoes stolen. The
pool is a great haven but the health spa (why here?) costs! I filled out a customer questionnaire from home, I was sent a reply, full of excuses shame! Yes I know you can’t change the building but the food and the service are expensive and totally unacceptable, a bland response to a bland Sheraton experience, but it’s the only real option!. TIP: get a walking map and get into the park early when it opens and get to the train to go to the Devils Mouth area first its spectacular and wet, there are guides but its not necessary - if you go for the park, falls and the view and accept that the hotel is an average 4 star with bland food its fine- it really is all about the location, location, location.

As mentioned in previous reviews, the views from the Sheraton are amazing. Our suite overlooked the falls and had a huge balcony. The hotel itself is not particularly attractive, and the service was appalling. The restaurant was more like a works canteen, with tables left piled high with dirty crockery. We waited 20 minutes for a coffee at breakfast, and the tea we ordered never arrived. Service in the bar was slow and the food was cold when it arrived. Other guests were also complaining. Go for the location, but for the price, you would expect far higher standards.

Hotel has a great view of the falls but is very expensive.
As the hotel is isolated we felt taken advantage off; all is very expensive compared to teh rest of Argentina. Rooms are very average, hotel is an big squar building and needs some updating.
Service average, breakfast good. You pay for the location.

Obviously the hotel is no architectural masterpiece, but I can't imagine staying else where. Since my wife and I were not part of a tour group, we didn't have the benefit of included transportation throughout the area. Since we stayed at the Sheraton however, we could come and go as we pleased through all the trails on the Argentine side of falls. We didn't have the restaurant options available for dinner the two nights we were there, but being able to eat with the falls visible from the hotel restaurant was worth the extra cost of dinner.

Besides all that, the staff was very kind and helpful and overall we enjoyed our visit to Iguazu Falls thoroughly because of this hotel.

PS- be prepared for the heat here! We stayed in early September, nearing the end of their winter and the temperatures were in excess of 90F/30C. If you are considering a summer visit, be prepared for temps well over 100F.

I say the same as everyone else - stay for the location, not the hotel. The hotel looks more like a military communication center....but, the Sheraton seems to have done what it can with an older property. The inside is nice, but the building itself struggles.

We drove out into town (taxi) for one night's dinner, and it just punctuacted how lucky we were for our location to the falls. You wake up and can hear the falls - very pleasant. We are spg members, so we know what generally to expect from SPG properties.....again, Sheraton has done what it can for an older property, but your can't beat the location. If you can afford it, it is worth the price for proximity and convenience.
