Orquideas Hotel & Cabanas

Reviewed December 12, 2012

This family run hotel had everything we needed - close to the airport and the national park. We got up early to do a bird watching tour and the staff set up a mini buffet so we could grab a 6 am breakfast. The food is delicious especially the fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast. We received an upgraded room which was clean and spacious. The pool is set in a nice garden with lots of birds to watch. Wifi works consistently although you need to sit in the lobby to use it.

We stayed here for three nights in a master suite. Its a large lightfilled room away from the main hotel block, clean and a nice room to spend time in if you want to. The pool is excellent and snacks available out here as well. We found the breakfast very good and plenty of food. Dinner was also excellent- a buffet style and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and spoke english. All tours pickup from the hotel, and its only a short cheap taxi ride from the small town.

Room Tip: I would recommend the standard rooms only if you were on a budget as the main walkway to the restaur...

The hotel is at most a three star. The room is clean. You get CNN. There is a tiny desk and a chair in addition to the bed, but no other chair or sofa. The door does NOT block sound at all. You can hear every little sound from just outside the door. There is wireless Internet in the room, but it comes and goes and you have to reconnect a couple of times per hour. The breakfast is disappointing. The only hot item is scrambled eggs. You can make your own toast or choose the high calorie cakes on display. Fresh fruits are nice but nothing special considering the area. For these reasons, I do not think this hotel provides good value.

I was booked into this hotel by the travel agent who handelled by trip. I wasnt expecting a five star hotel, but certainly did expect more for the 4 star rating the hotel advertises.
The hotel is clean. We stayed in a Master Suite, which is extremely basic... but the room is pretty big.
The bathroom was clean but the used towels were never replaced during our two night stay.
Breakfast was terrible. There was certainly not a large variety offered the pre-cut fruit looked extremely unappealing. Tables are not set out for guests and you have to essentially pick up all the cutlery and crockery you would like to use take it to your table.

The staff are friendly and were helpful.

The hotel location is not great but is adequate if all you plan to do is vist the falls.

I recently stayed here after a night at the Sheraton, the Sheraton is located within the park, I found this place much nicer, they have separate cabanas which are nice, they have standard rooms, not recommended, very small Motel 6 type, for the budget conscious probably ok for a day. I had a regency master suite, large two rooms with a large bathroom and Jacuzzi. For Argentina it was the first hotel that had USA water pressure, it is true that the hotel is about two miles from the park and with out a rental car you are stuck relying on your tour operator or Remises, private taxi's, overall I 'd say rent a car, Hertz,Avis.For those of you that do not speak any Spanish, the experience within Argentina outside of your Hotel can be a bit daunting, however at this hotel reception is fluent and everyone has a basic grip on English. I read some of the current posts and wonder how my experience was better, I thought the breakfast was excellent, it does not provide american style breakfast, you will not find this anywhere in Argentina but it had scrambled eggs, a large variety of fruit and juices along with cereals and yogurts. I had a wonderful time and we spent four day's here. A couple,not to young not to old. we will return if we revisit. The pool is excellent and the grounds are well maintained. For dinner again I was impressed especially with the chicken dish. I suppose everyone has their good day's and their bad, we were lucky, the place was pleasant, overall it is a three star hotel, by USA standards but for the price and the time we were there it is recommended. There really are not any five star hotels in the Argentina side, the Brazil side has a nice hotel with casino but the price is outrageous and it is a very long way to the park unless you copter in.

Room Tip: rooms in the regency class best and the cabanas even better

We chose not to stay at the Sheraton, which has a fantastic view of the falls from the lobby, but just so-so accommodations. Instead, we took our package operator's advice and stayed here. We had a "master room". It was clean, good bed, no bugs, a frig and roomy. That's all I can say, then, again, the options I noted in a ride around the town did not appear to be much better. I did view from the hallway a standard room--that would not be a room I would want to stay in. The included breakfast was an adequate buffet. Location is several miles away from the national park entrance to the falls. I believe there is a bus that goes by the door that would take you directly to the falls, but we did not use that service.

Room Tip: Opt for the "master room" upgrade.
