“Outdated, dirty and bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We booked two rooms (309 + 310) for three nights at the official rate in may 2013. The rooms are so called Paradise suites and spacious. That's the good side. The other side is that the rooms esp. the bathrooms are old and outdated, the bathtube is cracked, the shower facilties were not working properly, the bathroom is really smelly, and dirty (hair and dust). Reservations was very unefficiant. Had to call several times to get my reservations confirmed. The food at the Hotel was poor (fish was still frozen inside). I gave them my impression by customer survey and email and never got a response. Avoid the place if you can. If you have to go, make sure you get renovated rooms (obviously there are some).

The Iguazu Grand is indeed a Grand Hotel. The rooms are comfortable & clean providing all amenities you may need. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to accommodate all requests. From booking restaurants, confirming flights and arranging late check-outs. The Spa and Pool area is a huge plus. Lovely indoor heated swimming pool & Roman bath. The gym is well equipped. The bar serves the best Martini's in Argentina! Highly recommend to a any discerning traveller.

Room Tip: We had a garden view room & we enjoyed the tranquility of the landscaping.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but went to the casino on Saturday night. It's a nice casino, complete with poker tables, roulette, a good bar and free drinks if you play on the tables. Service was very attentive, dealers professional and the Champagne cocktail I had was delicious. Would definitely go again. P.S. My opinion is probably skewed as we won that night ;-)

What a wonderful surprise to find such a spectacular property in the middle of the Argentinian jungle. We did not visit the casino but the rest of the facilities were top rate. Our room was very clean & spacious. Seriously, the room was larger than our first apartment. The bathroom was huge & had double vanity sinks. The grounds invited you to stroll & explore. The large tri-level pool is worthy of special mention. It was made to blend in with the tropical landscape. The two restaurants we ate at were reasonably priced. The service was prompt, friendly & efficient. We were pleasantly surprised at the fried eggs added to the hamburgers & club sandwiches. Their steaks were large & delicious but in Argentina why would we expect anything less. This hotel helped make our visit to Iguazu Falls a memorable trip.

A hotel with a huge outdoor pool, full spa, and great gardens. Provides a welcome retreat for when the falls are closed - ideal for a family that want some fun after a day at the falls. Great restaurant too. Friendly, efficient service. So why not 5 stars - two reasons, the style is a bit Las Vegas ish....but that's a taste thing,,,,and the breakfast could have been better....looked impressive, but the reality was less than this. If it wasn't for that would have hit 5 for me.

As other reviews on TA will attest, this property is lacking in many ways. Also note there is not one single comment from management concerning any of the reviews, suggesting only one thing - no one gives a damn, and it's obvious. To boot, it's been awarded Leading Hotels of the World - please and no thank you; I don't think so. The hotel grounds are spectacular; that's the best part of the hotel. The insane 10:00 AM check out time is a slap in the face, but then again, I saw no reason to stay and enjoy the dirty, worn, faded furniture, the tiny bathroom, the tattered carpet, the furnitureless balcony overlooking nothing, and the poor quality, expensive food on premises. In addition to a front desk that would not change nor exchange currency, the 30 minute walk into town to the nearest ATM, was not welcome. (Puerto Iguazu is a nasty, nasty town) Let me also add, the rip off casino did not have an ATM, likely the only casino in the entire world without ATM - seriously. The hotel is a solid 25 minute, expensive ride to the National Park. I plan on a return visit to this area to see more of Iguazu Falls, but for sure won't stay here. Leading Hotels of the World? Please - don't blow smoke when there's no fire.

Room Tip: Choose your room at the Sheraton in the National Park. There are no good rooms here.
