    Location”

    The hotel was located within walking distance to the entrance of the park to the brazil side of the falls and parque da alvas(bird park). The hotel itself was a decent stay. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. There was endless amount of hot water in the shower. The WiFi was in the medium range. . The free breakfast was the basic. I didn’t like eggs but rest was fine. Fruit cereal bread and juices. The pool was nice but the trail they have isn’t worth the walk. The staff was great. Front desk, maids, and restaurant/bar service was excellent. I would stay here again if I returned for the location itself.

    It was a short one night trip to San Martin but wow was I blown away by the facilities and the staff. Everyone from the front desk, to housekeeping, bar tenders, pool attendants and cooks were impeccable. My cousin and I had the best time! A million thanks to everyone at the San Martin for such a pleasant stay! One last note, the resort is situated next to the parque das aves, so the birds can be heard from the pool area and get quiet noisy but we didn't mind it. It added another layer to the jungle experience of the resort. Will definitely return next time I come to the waterfalls! It literally is steps away from the entrance!

    the most chaotic reception I have ever seen”

    Location, location, location

    As you can read on many review forums, the reception is pure chaos. They never know which room to give you and they never give you the room you have booked. But these days they have come up with the "smart" idea that they have "upgraded" you. We were all "upgraded"! My upgraded room: two tiny, uncomfortable twin beds (I booked a double) in an old room with depressing furniture. The food is worse than I had read about. As suggested by many travellers, I avoided the buffet and ordered a la carte. Nothing to do. The food is just crap. No matter how many bad reviews they get, they will always have business: they are 5 mins walk from the entrance of the Iguacu Park. Just stay one night and escape.

    Location, Environment and Staff

    It was very good. The only let down was none of the staff or even reception could speak Fluent English. Expect more from a 4 star hotel located next to probably the most visited Tourist destination in Brazil. Room service was poor and it took 3 attempts to request and iron and board until a waiter turned up with a Menu card. At which point, I gave up and went out in crushed clothes. Service is at snail pace and not always with a smile. Then maybe I am just spoilt and this is the standard in Brazil. The room I had was clean but the bath room was dated. Beds are comfortable and common areas are clean (carpeted areas are looking tired). I would recommend this hotel for the location and it's peaceful surroundings. Will stay here again.

    Good hotel located in a beautiful garden, swimming pool and a private jungle trail! The entrance to the Iguazu Falls (Brazilian side) is in 10 minutes walking distance. A private Bird Park is next door and highly recommended to visit. The hotel is nice, well kept, clean. The staff is friendly, helpful; English is widely spoken. The Tour office is knowledgable and helpful to explain and arrange tours. The rooms are a bit small. The only complain is the Internet connection, especially in the rooms). The breakfast offers a rich buffet. The dinner was not exciting and/or cheap.

    1.The front desk staff were so irresponsible and rude. Bad experience we ever have. 2. Taste of food inside the only restaurant of the hotel is really not good. The waiters would ask customers for tips in cash. That's fine but a bit strange. 3. Super slow wifi. 4. Beware of insects inside the room.

    Some high and lows on this hotel. See which are more important to you to help inform your booking, or not. PlusPoints - walk to the entrance of the Falls (Brazil side), helicopter flight over the Falls and Bird Park (all which were brilliant by the way) - local bus stops outside - close to Brazil Iguazu airport - hotel, room and grounds really spacious and clean - didn't experience the rudeness we'd read from others from the hotel staff. Plenty of smiles all round - the pool was inviting after a day doing the sights. LowPoints - Hotel food. Breakfast choice limited. Dinner poor. Set buffet priced at 50 Reals which wasn't great but only what you get a la carte at a higher price. Bland but nothing else on offer nearby. - bar closes at 11.30pm. Hotel in shutdown by midnight and the city is a fair drive away to party. For the price we paid in high season through Agoda.com we couldn't fault the value compared to what else was on offer. "

    Location right next to Iguacu Falls, superb staff, really comfortable

    Fantastic. Everything you will want from a hotel, with comfortable rooms, bed and shower. Clean, efficient and great staff. Right next to Iguacu Falls which makes it convenient, but also isolated from the world. Which is not a bad thing, given also that the restaurant has decent priced menus, and is not out to rip you off.

    Nothing to complain about, great stay!”

    Location right next to Iguacu Falls, superb staff, really comfortable

    Fantastic. Everything you will want from a hotel, with comfortable rooms, bed and shower. Clean, efficient and great staff. Right next to Iguacu Falls which makes it convenient, but also isolated from the world. Which is not a bad thing, given also that the restaurant has decent priced menus, and is not out to rip you off.
