went there with a 10 yr old child in April. The rooms are well kept and mixing high tech with very traditional furniture etc. Pool area great.Location is truly unique. Excellent staff. Only negative point is, like all restaurants in Brazil thanks to taxes, the wine is expensive.
went to the Sheraton on the Argentinian side - very 1980s efficient but no soul, not remotely comparable..

Room Tip: spend the most your bufdget can handle for larger rooms

This is without doubt worth the expense.
Location: It's in the national park, and many of the places to stay here suffer from entry restrictions meaning that if you have hired a car, you can;t take it in the park. Much better to spend a bit more money and stay here and use the hotel services to move you around. The location with the park is excellent. It is a safe and secure area and well managed. The view from the veranda is one of the best I've seen from the hotel, and it's only a few minutes stroll from the main cataratas. It's a perfect base for strolling around.
Services: Excellent service provided by multi lingual staff. A small, easy point where hotels show commitment to service is when the person who checks you also takes you to your room. A good personal touch.
Decor: We were initially a bit worried that the hotel is quite old. No need to have worried. The hotel has been recently completely renovated and modernised, but in a style which is completely in keeping with the building and its surroundings. Excellent room with good fixtures and fitting and supremely comfortable. Good, quiet air con.
Food & Drink: The dinner buffet (best to book your time) is high quality with plenty of variety. Far better than the average hotel buffet.
Also: Good, clean, well looked after pool area with good bar service. staff all helpful and well mannered. Really efficient concierge service which helped to book all the activities available (boat tours, guides, trip to the power plant etc etc etc).

A clean, efficient, well run, well managed hotel which creates a happy environment.

Bar serves excellent cocktails too!

This was exactly the experience that we hoped it would be. The location meant that we could observe the falls in the morning before the crowds arrived and then stroll back for a memorable breakfast, in the sunshine outside by the pool, eating superb food.

The service in all areas was extremely professional and the hotel grounds and rooms were all in immaculate condition. Our room was not large but the bed was comfortable with good quality bedding. The wardrobe space was a little limited but we were only there for 3 nights and the bathroom was on the small side but the shower was excellent.

We ate each night in the bar from a limited menu but the food was good as was the service. Our appetites were not up to eating in the restaurant, especially given the cost of dinner.

The other reviews have said it all. The hotel is expensive but, for once, you get what you pay for - an amazing experience.

This hotel's location is undeniably perfect - right opposite the falls on the Brazilian side where the views are most beautiful. The rooms were lovely, the service impecable in all respects and the food was really very very good. When we arrived our room was not yet ready (we were early) so we went and ate lunch by the beautiful pool - they had a typical Brazilian buffet / grill lunch, which was excellent. When our room was ready the receptionist actually came to find us and bring us our key and take us on a tour. Our room was very big and well appointed with lots of lovely toiletries and some more free Havaianas! The pool was beautiful with plenty of loungers and the bar by the pool served great drinks and food. Breakfast was wonderful - very high quality and massive choice (they even did porridge which made me feel very at home!). The gym was almost empty and had great machines and weights - all very new. We also ate in the a la carte menu one night as well, which was excellent food - true haute cuisine. The real advantage is the fact that after the park closes you can wander down to the falls and watch the sunset in realtive peace. A great hotel and a beautiful place.

We booked this hotel to celebrate a special birthday and our first time to South America. We were told by friends that this hotel was a must for it's privileged location inside the National Park. You certainly pay the price for such privilege but we realised very quickly that it was worth every cent we paid. On our first morning we walked down to the falls just as the sun was rising. I don't think we will ever have again such an experience of sheer beauty and magic. The falls were framed by a complete rainbow that did not look real it was so perfect. We were alone in this unbelievable landscape and it was hard to believe we weren't dreaming. Back at the hotel, the service was outstanding, perfect attention to every detail. The breakfasts are so generous and beautifully prepared with the best fruit platters, fresh exotic juices, gorgeous pastries, enough to set you off for the day on many adventures. Apart from all the obvious attractions this place has to offer, we particularly enjoyed the bird park on the brazilian side that has the most extraordinary variety of parrots, toucans, butterflies and other exotic birds you would be lucky to spot in the wild otherwise. We spend three nights in this hotel, broke the bank, but would absolutely recommend it. It is a once in a lifetime experience.
