“When in Iguazu, would only stay there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Because of the floods in June, 2014 the ferry from Paraguay to Argentine wasnt running, we were late, couldnt see the falls from the Argentinian side, so we were tired, grumpy and a bit disappointed on our arrival. Fortunately, our arrival was at this hotel. What a warming welcome we received. Despite being off-season the staff was very well organised and they were expecting us with great mood and gave us an excellent room pretty quickly so we could rest.
The restaurant was Amazing. The cuisine was of highest quality and very very delicious. I am beef lover, so I felt like in heaven.
We had to leave early, like 4AM-very early, but still we were served breakfast, which was no worse than the dinner served in the restaurant.
The taxi to the Brazilian airport was arranged by the hotel and was smooth and not very expensive.
Would stay there again in the blink of an eye

Starting with the check in, this hotel did not disappoint. The atmosphere and vibes were so welcoming and the staff super friendly.

My laundry was done with out my asking and the breakfast, although slightly over the top, was excellent.

The room was large and comfortable but a little dated, although the shower was brand new and worked very well.

Very impressive overall. the staff clearly went out of their way to accommodate us.

One further tip, if you pay cash they give you a discount!

Room Tip: In some of the rooms i heard the shower didn't work too well but in mine (Naife - they have name...

We had wonderful stay here. We were met with champagne upon arrival, and that generosity continued throughout our stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. Laundry is offered with a same day service. There was a jacuzzi outside our room. Breakfast was heavy on the carbs, but delightful nonetheless. The staff were genuinely friendly and caring, and the owner even chatted with my husband for over 2 hours one afternoon. Takes about 15 minutes to walk to the main streets, and it's quiet and safe to do so. 15 mins taxi ride to the falls. They can call a taxi for you. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

The Boutique Hotel De La Fonte, owned by Simona and her chef husband, has the best restaurant of Puerto Iguazu. We were in three friends. The suggested menu was really incredible, starting with the apetizer made of shrimps cooked at centolla's juice, with sweet peas and caviar, gentile flavors, that pops up in your mouth. The Salvador Dali's plate was really an ouvre d'art, with seafood and shrimp pan fried, marvelous! I've tasted the delicious home made pasta(nhoque) in pesto genovese and the filet mignon in wine sauce was also perfect. A must in Puerto Iguazu, with the artists' owners paintings in the walls. To taste and appreciate. 5 stars!

The hotel is located somewhat outside the centre of town, with a 15-20 minute walk to restaurants and bars. Good if you're looking for some peace and quiet, but inconvenient if you don't want to eat in the excellent hotel restaurant every night.

Staff is friendly, rooms are nice and clean, the small pool and hottub looked nice (though we didn't use them during our stay). Breakfast is good, but can become boring if staying more than a couple of days. Our bathroom was a bit cramped and especially the shower felt a bit claustrophobic with the circular shower curtain leaving barely enough room to turn.

It is slightly hidden and you would never expect what you will find when the gate opens. This property is extremely well thought, designed around relax and pleasure. Starting from the common areas, the outside jacuzzis and the garden, then the rooms and the restaurant, all the right details are taking care of, clearly raising the bar compared to any other property we have been during our Argentinian road trip.
