The hotel is on a large property with a nice large pool and a very excellent ecological trail, which we spent about 45 minutes walking both nights we stayed there. We did not have children with us, but it did look like an ideal place for families, with many things for children to do. The interior hallways had a tropical feel to them. Our room however faced another building and could best be described as average. The food was above average in the buffet and there was a large selection. The breakfast room had a large selection and offered individually cooked eggs and omelets. The restaurant is not open every night and the staff was not sure if was open the night we wanted to go there, it was however and did happen to open that particular night and the food was good. We did have one incident when a group was going up in the small elevator and the lights when off when the door closed, the elevator did still get us to our rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool. It ;can be noisy, but our room just overlooked another buildi...

The resort is rather large with very nice lobby. Ther are 3 dining rooms. Bedooms were comfortable. We enjoyed the garden walks especially seeing the huge vegetable garden and Bird Aviarywhich included Macaws, Toucans, Parrots, etc. The pool is beautiful with large area for lounging. There is a childrens pool and play area. This is definitely a resort geared to families so don't expect quietness. We had to change rooms on arrival even though it was quite a large room. The loud noise from the musicians in one of the bar areas near the lobby was so loud that it was very disturbing and it was to last until 11pm. The hotel did change the room for us.

The breakfast buffets offerred a large variety. No need to go away hungry.
There was a nominal fee for internet use. No tea making facilities in room.
In the afternoon they put out juice drinks in the lobby to refresh you from an active day.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the pool are quieter. Rooms around pool have large balconies. Ask for a lockbox ke...

We stayed here for a two nights whilst visiting the Brazilian side of the Iguassu Falls. This is an old hotel and whilst the rooms are comfortable and the staff are helpful and friendly, there were a couple of issues that certainly irritated. Firstly (and this really drove us crazy) is that if your room faces the pool area, you will be disturbed the whole day by very loud awful piped music played over a really bad fuzzy speaker. Complaining fell on deaf ears, no pun intended! Secondly, only side plates are used to serve breakfast, a really bizarre practice, which means you first eat your egg, then you go and get some sausages, and then a third time for the tomatoes etc etc. Thirdly, the hotel does not change money but has a travel agent on site that does, but they only work office hours. Fourthly, when in desperation for some peace and quiet you retire to the indoor heated spa pool, you find that it is not supervised at all. There were a bunch of badly behaved kids jumping, splashing and screaming. Needless to say our visit to this pool lasted 5 minutes. Finally, there was only one restaurant open for dinner on a Monday night but it would only accept smartly dressed people . (Sorry, we left our office clothes back home and only had jeans and shorts.) We did not eat that night. Our recommendation would be to stay on the Argentinian side of the falls and do a day visit to Brazil to see their view of the falls and visit the Parc des Aves. Would really not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you like peace and quiet, do not get a pool facing room. They play awful piped music from a real...

I was astonished by the great service provided here. Our 2 1/2 year old fell terribly sick, with a 102 degree temperature. We were naturally worried. The hotel staff called a pediatrician, and stayed by our side translating back and forth between us and the local pediatrician. They also then facilitated getting the medication necessary for our toddler. They went over and beyond what a normal hotel staff does. In addition, the night before this, our baggage was lost from Rio to Iguacu. The staff was relentless in calling TAM airlines, and making sure our baggage arrived that day at our doorstep. Simply amazing service.

Service aside, the hotel is about 22km away from the falls. There's a bus stop right across the hotel, which charges only a simple R4 each way, and comes every 20 minutes or so. Probably the most convenient way to get to the falls.

Also, I'd recommend going for the breakfast and dinner option. There's nothing in town. Absolutely nothing...the hotel food is far better than what you'll find in town.

Stayed here for one night. It is average at best for the price. The rooms need to be updated, as well as the bathrooms. They are clean though. On the night we stayed, one of the restaurants was closed so the only option we had was a buffet that 56 reais a person, and it didn't look very good. The front desk staff didn't seem to know much about the restaurants in the area, there wasn't really a concierge or anything. I didn't have any problems with service or anything with the hotel but I just think for how much we paid it was not worth it.
