This hotel was part of a package to Iguazu put together by Amichi, an established tour operator with offices in BA. The bottom line is that would rank equal with an average Holiday Inn. On the plus side was the very nice pool area, the attentive service at the front desk, and the fact that local tour operator Caracol (very professional, by the way)has an office there, making booking some of the many wonderful tours of the falls and park very easy. On the minus side is the awful Argentine rap music the pool attendant insisted on playing at high volume in the pool area, and the worst coffee in the entire world at breakfast. Also somewhat negative was the disappointing buffet breakfast, the over-priced and rather boring dining room, the slow and incomplete service at the pool snack bar, and the hot/cold water inconsistencies in the shower. We could not leave the balcony door open at night because there are no screens, and had a hard time sleeping with the air conditioner on since it was 1950’s model complete with a continuous rattle.
Unique Quality: The pool was good, and the front desk staff helpful, but not much else was that great.
Directions: Between the town itself and the National Park, Argentine side
The hotel is a nice 5-star hotel with all the amenities one may need. There are 2 restaurants and a snack bar, a SPA, a games room, a pool and an open jacuzzi, a tennis court and a paddle court.
The rooms are similar to any international hotel, with TV, mini bar and A/C... pretty comfortable.
Unique Quality: The pool is really nice, with its waterfalls.
This is a nice Big hotel lots of goodies like a nice big clean pool, helpful staff (in my experience limited English). Cost was about $100 a night. It has all the stuff in a Big hotel like a spa and fitness center ( but hay why are you not walking around town and the falls). Also it is fresh as the hotel was upgraded and renovated. Food was good breakfast was a buffet awhich was included in the price and had lots of nice tropical fruit.
somewhere? Why or Why Not? -- I think as a gereral rule I like a smaller more at home sort of place so would go for Santa Cecilia, Misiones is a wonderful working cattle ranch you can stay at nearby if you have more time.
Unique Quality: Location Location location - Iguazu falls are only about 8 minutes away and ther is a bus that goes often also if you like to walk around town like i do it is close to Puerto Iguazu and the road to Brazil.
Are cabs readily available at Iguazu airport or should I pre-arrange a cab through my hotel?
Anyone know the approximate cost to take a cab from the airport to Puerto Iguazu?
When you arrive at the airport there will be cabs around.
No need to pre-arrange.
Last year it was about 30 pesos to Pt. Iguazu. Depends a little bit where your accommodation is.
sEe you will stay in Hotel Cataratas. Ask them for a pick up service from the airport.
I asked my hotel (Orquideas) the same question. They said cabs available or would arrange transport if I asked for it.
