Mr. Robert Lee (25/07/2017)

"Typical resort hotel. Food nothing special. However, we enjoyed the garden and trail to the river. Good location for visiting the falls."

Miss. Christine Waddington
"I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel as some of the reviews I read on line weren't particularly complimentary. Serves me right for reading reviews on Trip Adviser!"
Margaret UK
"Rooms small and basic for "superior", but clean and adequate. Lovely extensive grounds including nature trail through forest to overlook Iguacu River. Large swimming pool and terrace. Family friendly. No access to outside restaurants in evening (too far). Hotel restaurant fairly pricy and bar menu fairly limited but good introduction to capirhinas! Closest hotel to Brazilian side of Falls."
Mr. Philip O'Brien
"A good hotel in a good location easy access to the airrport and the national park, breakfasts were fine. Due to the early departure of our flight mentioned elsewhere they were unable to provide us with breakfast on the day we left. The guide we had for the falls Ceaser was very good and helpful and helped to arrange evening entertainment for us on the day we arrived.."
Mr. Graham Petz
"Pictures can deceive! The hotel is starting to show its age."
