“Fair resting place for trips to Foz do Iguacu”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We stayed at the San Martin the afternoon we flew in from São Paulo and the night before we left for another part of our journey. In between we spent two days at the Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas. We did this for economic reasons as the rate at San Martin is reasonable and 5 minutes by taxi to the gate of the Foz Iguacu National Park.

The hotel is fine. Not lush, not cheap, just fine. It is clean, the staff are kind, and the breakfast is pretty good. The rooms are very simple and fairly small but adequate. The place seems great for families with kids as there is a large pool, a soccer field, and a small play ground. In fact, we saw lots of families. The setting itself, in the back near the pool, is pretty with a path to the Iguacu River.

I recommend the hotel for a short stay--solely for VERY easy access to the Park. Getting into the Park is not complicated. Our hotel driver was very kind and helped us buy our tickets at the gate. Again, the staff, many who spoke English, were helpful and polite.

A good "pass through" hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the back garden.

I stayed here for two nights during a recent trip to Peru and Brazil with two friends. This hotel is very convenient for access to the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. The room we got was very small and sparsely furnished. We also had to phone room service to get towels for the second day. Although there were three of us, they wouldn't give us more than one key. The grounds are nice, and the hotel is located adjacent to "Bird Park". A nice walking trail through subtropical forest is also available. The outdoor pool looked nice, although we didn't use it. The security guard at the main gate was a pompous and officious fellow who gave our guide/driver lots of grief when he picked us up at the hotel entrance instead of 20 m away at a designated painted rectangle in the parking lot. Gotta do something to make the job interesting, I guess. Breakfast was comprehensive and good, with lots of selection. Breakfast on the patio was available.

This resort hotel is superbly located for visiting the Brazilian side of the falls - just a 5 minute walk to the entrance means you easily be there as the gates open and avoid the crowds that arrive shortly afterwards.
The hotel rooms are very comfortable and the facilities of the resort good.
Food and drink charges were high though, even by Brazilian standards and not that great.
Wifi was clumsy and erratic, but was offered free of charge.

Poor service - staff very disinterested. Poor breakfast - limited choice, poor quality. Dinner either buffet or very average a la carte, so better to go out but other restaurants are a good taxi ride away. Rooms adequate. The location is great - walking distance to the Brazilian side of the Iguacu Falls - but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

A convenient and pleasant hotel close enough to be able to walk to the Falls on the Brazilian side. We only stayed 2 nights and ate in the restaurant both nights as the town was quite a distance away and we already had had a full day. We chose the buffet both nights which was varied if a little pricey. Breakfast very good choice and lovely. Helpful reception staff and we were let into our room early as it was ready.
