My Spanish immersion class stayed here on our third stop of the Argentine tour. It was a bit of jungle paradise! The pool area was relaxing, large, and beautiful. Although this property is right on the main highway, once inside, its barely noticable. The central location is a short cab ride to both Puerto Iguazu and Iguazu Falls and it is walking distance to several interesting attractions. (Wild animal rehab center, museums)
We guessed that it was built in the 40's or 50's by design, one level, open hallways, open beam construction. All-in-all it's quaint. There are in-room safes, fully appointed baths, mini fridge and AC. The television in our room didn't work, and others in our group said the same. I never reported it because I didn't care, I wasn't there to watch television.
The staff was helpful and friendly, the restaurant was decent. Buffet style breakfast and dinner, not the best I've ever had but adequate and abundant food.
Don't stay here if you have an aversion to wildlife. It's the jungle folks, there are frogs, geckos, insects, and birds. It was fun to watch the hotel desk manager expertly catch a swallow that had been trapped in the lobby. Clearly he'd done it before. I've included a photo of the cool frog that was in our hallway near our door.
