But then again you're paying for the location, not the hotel. We had a problem with our reservation as in they couldn't find it! Whoever's fault it was, either the hotel itself or the booking agent we used, we shouldn't have been made to sit in Reception for an hour whilst they tried to work it out - that was quite embarrassing.
We were finally chaperoned to our room only to find it still hadn't been cleaned from the previous occupants so we went for lunch and by the time we were finished it was ready. Shoebox in size - the guy who showed us the room said it was one with a nicer view (errrr rooftops?)! Received a bottle of sparkling wine from mgmt. re. earlier mishap with reservation - that was a nice touch.
Couldn't get a table in the a-la-carte restaurant on either night of our 2 night stay so first night we had room service - shrimp risotto was devine (can't remember what my partner had). Next night we went for the buffet - nothing really to shout about but nice enough. Breakfast was sufficient - bit of a free for all and too long a queue at the egg station for my liking.
So..... back to location - AMAZING!!! Great viewing platform in front of the falls and easy walk down to Devils Peak (we went before the hoards arrived!). Got wet, went back, got changed and went out again! Booked Jet Boat through Iguazu Experiences - enjoyed that immensely!
Overall a lovely stay but not quite a 5 for me. Would we stay again though - probably..... once we've saved up again!
