I am glad we stayed in the park. It was so convienent to just walk back to the hotel and not have to worry about catching a bus back to the town. Plus, when we took the boat ride into the falls and got soaked, it was great to just walk back to the hotel and not have to be wet all day long or endure a bus ride in wet clothing.
However, this is an expensive hotel. They didn't have a king-sized bed which was irritating since that was specified in our reservation. The breakfast is very good, standard American bacon & eggs plus all of the pastries and breads with jellies & dulce de leche - even champagne on Sunday. The restaurant downstairs for dinner was horrible. Neither my husband nor I enjoyed our meals at all, very bland. There is also a buffet that looked like it might have been good - but for $25 USD (for lunch and dinner), which seemed really expensive compared to both the a la carte menu and every other meal we had in Argentina (the buffet inside the park that is open for lunch and less than $10 USD by comparison). For the rest of the our time there, we ordered burgers and sandwiches at the bar in the lobby. Nothing exceptional, but it worked for us. That is the main drawback to the hotel, the food isn't good and by the time you spend 7 hours walking around the falls all day long, you don't really feel like venturing into the city, or paying for a taxi to take you which was very expensive compared to BsAs taxis.
But would I stay here again? Absolutely. You can't beat the convience and waking up to see the falls from your hotel room and eating breakfast looking at the falls was outstanding.
And another observation: most of the other guests staying there were older or were families. In fact, I really didn't see any else our age (mid-twenties). This didn't bother us at all because we could enjoy the nightlife during the rest of our trip (Rio, Salvador, BsAs). It was kind of nice to sit back at the hotel bar and have a Quilmes and just relax.
