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!
