“Hotel Bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This hotel was a true joy! Although expensive, it is worth every penny. The location is ideal. The food delicious. The room was outstanding (a junior suite facing the falls). But the true heart of this hotel is the staff. You will be treated graciously, professionally and with a true sincerity in any reply to your wishes and concerns. I have stayed at many 5 - 6 star properties, but none has been this type of a delightful experience. If you want a thorough hotel and room tour- ask for Luis, if you want to have an illuminating conversation about your stay, the park or Brazil in general, Fabio, the duty manager, is at your service.

One of the best decisions we made in our trip to South America was to stay in this hotel. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent facilities! This place makes you feel like royalty, and nothing beats seeing Foz do Iguacu from your hotel window. Definitely worth every penny and much more. The best hotel I've ever experienced!

My second time at this Hotel. It only gets better. This is the Hotel where you have to stay in Iguacu. I have stayed at the Hotel in the Argentinian side. Nice Hotel but does not compare with Das Cataratas. Be carefull because the Argentinian trails are partially closed at the moment. You can not reach the Garganta del Diablo. The trail has been closed for some months now. Argentinian trails are very limited at this moment. You will end up going to the Brazilian side to view the falls.

If you can afford this Hotel this is the place where you have to stay. Its impecable in every aspect. BE SURE TO ARRANGE FOR THE HOTEL TO PICK YOU UP AT THE AIRPORT. Do not try to sabe money. It is not worth the hastle.

The hotel is worth the splurge to be inside the National Park (Brazilian side). The room was spacious and clean and we were provided with complimentary Haviannas at our bed side. We could hear the falls from our room. The hotel transferred us from the aiport at 2am which was great. Check in and out was easy and the staff were very accomodating at reception and the bar area. The breakfast buffet was delicious with a different selection of hot food and pastries each morning. Early morning walks were the best because if you are not staying at the hotel you cannot get into the park yet! I would definitely stay here again when I visit Iguazu Falls...

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can hear the falls

The hotel is right inside the park (Brazillian side) with amazing access to the falls. It's such an advantage to have access to the park before and after it opens - we got up early one morning to go for a walk and were the only people on many of the lookouts and platforms, later the park gets a lot busier. Aside from location the hotel is really beautiful - you feel like you're staying somewhere really special - and the staff all seem to really love what they do. Rooms are a good size with a great bathroom and the free pair of Havianas flip flops on arrival is also a nice touch. Because it's the only hotel in the park it means really you have to eat all your meals in the hotel - we found the prices a little on the expensive side but the food was extremely good. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was really impressive with a vast selection of food and drinks to choose from (buffet style). The only thing that slightly disappointed us was the process of booking trips. The hotel has a booking office in the main lobby pretty much opposite the reception desk. We booked two trips (rib boat to the falls and helicopter ride) which were both well worth the money, but whilst the helicopter trip you paid to the helicopter operator directly, the other trip was added to our room bill. On check out we paid our bill but whilst waiting for our airport transfer, realised the trip seemed more expensive than we thought. We checked with the booking office and it turns out that if you pay on check out with your room bill, an extra 15% is added! If we had just paid at the booking office (which is pretty much opposite the reception) we would have paid the price we thought. Apparently we should have been told this but unfortunately we weren't. We spoke to the reception desk who apologised for not informing us of this on check out but said they couldn't just refund the difference. Big tip - if you book any trips with the tour office in the hotel - pay them directly, 15% extra is a lot!! Otherwise a lovely hotel and the access to the park really is wonderful.
