“Don't be put off by negative reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

I only checked reviews after arriving and was amazed by some of the negative comments posted. The hotel is lovely, set in spacious grounds on the sloping banks above the Iguazu River, some 400 metres from the Tres Fronteras view point overlooking the confluence of the Iguazu and Paraña Rivers. From this point there are views across the Iguazu to Brazil and the Paraña to Paraguay.
The air conditioning on entering the hotel is a blessed relief from the heat and humidity of December. The staff were very friendly have remained so during our stay. The lobby bar area is a large communal area with comfortable settees and chairs and access to 3 computers for taking advantage of the free wifi available (in all bedrooms too).
The bedroom is of a decent size, equipped with a large, comfortable double bed, chair, 26" flat screen TV and minibar. This room is tastefully, and fairly recently, decorated and has very effective air conditioning. There is a French window opening on to a small balcony complete with a large flower- and plant-filled box on the balcony rails.
The bathroom is smallish and perhaps a little gloomy, but has bath/shower, basin, toilet and bidet.
The buffet breakfast is excellent. I cannot comment on the restaurant as we have not eaten lunch or dinner there.
In the grounds there is a rectangular pool with loungers, tables and chairs with parasols and some games tables. At the pool-side bar drinks and food can be ordered.
We have not experienced any noise problems from inside the hotel or, indeed, from local youths playing loud music into the early hours. Our experience has been entirely favourable. I would have no hesitation (a) in staying here again and (b) recommending it to others. In my opinion, it is better to be located away from "downtown" as the town itself has very little to commend it!

I traveled here with my mother on a three day excursion to see the Iguazu Falls. We found the hotel spacious and inviting with interesting splashes of color on the walls and modern design touches, as well as being impeccably clean. Our room was basic but nice with a large t.v., balcony, and good airconditioning and lighting. The restaurant didn't have huge variety of options, but the meat dishes we tried were solid and it was a nice place to have a drink. The staff was not particularly outgoing, but were helpful with our questions when asked. Most of the other guests appeared to be Argentine families, which leant a laid back feel. Overall, a fun and relaxing base camp for our Iguazu adventures, at a very excellent value.

Stayed for holidays. Nice breakfast, good service. My room desperately needed maintenance. Bathroom shower had no water pressure, old pieces in bathroom fixtures, old curtain. Also the beddings need to be modernized.

Wd stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in our Iguazu trip.
The hotel is built near the end of the small town and covers a large area. It has an average size pool, a bar, shopping and a restaurant.
The room was OK, felt like acountry hotel of course but it needs a little bit of upgrading. There were shops selling souvenirs which was very helpful for me as walking down the town was not really a pleasant think to do. We had dinner in the restaurant but unfortunately we did not enjoy it. The menu was limited and the food was not really cooked properly. The service was problematic with half waiters not speaking enough English.
I thought I did not get good value for money.

Just stayed 2 nights at the hotel as was pleasantly surprised how good it was. A friend recommended it but with a few "but's" in there, so was somewhat concerned.

Firstly one - was a bit far from downtown Iguazu. Yes it is about 6 blocks away from the downtown main street. But you can easily walk it in about 15-20mins comfortably. Also the town buses to the bus station runs past the hotel front gates every 10-15mins and are always on-time. The bus to the Falls also runs past with a sign "Cataratas" on the front. Costs around ARG25 for a one way ticket.

Breakfast is great and alot of options. Also had dinner at the restuarant one night and also very good. Staff were very pleasant and as with most of my trip around Sth America we played I dont speak Spanish and they dont speak English. But sign language, smiles and pointing works just fine.

The only couple of problems were:

Wifi. Doesnt have strong strenght in the rooms. But found going up to the reception area, which had alot of coaches and wifi would work great. Worked ok as I would only go online for maybe 30-40mins each night just to clear emails and check future travel plans so nothing big.

Slight damp smell in the room. Nothing big considering the humidity in the area. Left the balcony doors open for a few hours and was gone. Also travel with a small container of room freshner which again killed any residual smell. Also the rooms are a little dated and can be a little noisy with the tiles floors and people moving furniture or slamming doors, but nothing too bad.

While didnt use it also has a good pool area and a games area with table tennis table and a real tennis court.

Really good value at aprox USD$125 a night in this area and very suitable for a 3-4night stay.

This is a gorgeous hotel with a nice pool and gardens. Food was good, though the buffet and wine were v overpriced. But service was with a snarl. We had an awful experience with the waiter who seemed to take a dislike to us when we didnt take the wine he recommended which was nearly the most expensive on the menu. Front desk and other staff were equally unpleasant. A shame as the hotel is beautiful.

Service was professional and smiley, breakfast was huge and good.
The walls and windows are very thin so you are going to hear what happens in the rooms next to yours but if you are lucky enough (I was) then you "neighbors" won't disturb you.
Its location is not ideal if you are not keen to walk as the city centre is around 15 mins away (but there is plenty of taxis).
Roomds are spacious anc lean but Internet worked very badly.
