My wife and I visited this hotel for 4 nights.
I spent considerable time searching for hotels and finally opted for this one.
My main concerns were the comments on service; Having spent 4 nights there, I can tell you this was not an issue at all. As all hotels, depending on how many people are checking in, it will take more or less time. In our case it was a matter of no more than 10 minutes and the girl at the desk was very welcoming. We were then escorted to the room.
The hotel is beautiful, you will see from the pictures already posted here. No need to further elaborate other than I it takes around 10 minutes to drive there from the main road, for a total of around 30min from the airport. It is really immersed in the jungle, on a slope up from the river.
The room is big, comfortable and modern. They used a lot of wood in the room, which I loved. We took the cheapest of the room options and it was a great choice. We didn't have any balcony through. The beds are king size and really comfortable. Some people complained on the bathroom: my experience was very positive especially the shower: it is very spacious. The doors though it is true have a slight gap between the wall and the edge of the door, but it was not an issue for us... so unless you are the kind of person who needs a toilet completely "Hermetic" this should not be an issue. The room is also equipped with a bathtub, separated from the shower.
The breakfast is great. It has cereals, yogurt, croissants, cakes, bacon, eggs, bread, orange juice etc... It runs from 7h30 to 10h30.
The pool is also great, but if the hotel is full be sure to get your place early. We cam back from Iguazu falls and we had a hard time finding a bed. The only issue I would point out, based on my experience and which is not really controlable from the hotel staff, are the clients themselves: we had a group of loud Brazilians who drank all afternoon shouting and jumping into the pool. So in terms of tranquility, it will be a hit and miss affair depending on who is in the hotel... so this is just a word of caution in case you are hoping the hotel is only for couples, it is not: you could have noisy families there as well.
I also tried the SPA. I did a "masaje descontracturante" which cost 320 pesos and lasted 50 minutes. It was very good and the facilities are great as well. You are welcomed with a refreshing smell of plants and the changing room is equipped with sauna and shower. I also noticed some rooms had jaccuzi (which I didnt test).
I had noticed during my reading the comments that some people had moaned about the service at the bar next to the pool. I personally had a good experience. The staff was active and the few delays we had was because the hotel was full and people were ordering all over the place. I think they did a good job given the amount of people. the menu here is the same as the one for dinner.
The restaurant for dinner was very good as well. I noticed comments mentioning that it was too expensive. I agree that the prices are higher than in town. However, to go into town you either need a car or take a cab: you cant walk there, it is too far. In addition if you drive (we had rented a car), the traffic can be bad in the evening. We had long traffic jams trying to get in. The only night we eat out, was to go to the Jasy Hotel which was very good, but didnt spend a lot less than the other nights in the Loi suites for dinner. To give you an idea, at the Jasy we paid 220 pesos for a beer, a lemonde, a glass of red wine, a water, a fix and chips and a spaghetti bolognaise. In the Loi suites we paid around 280 pesos for two starters, a "pollo relleno", risotto, a glass of red wine and a water. the difference is around 10dollars, but at least you didnt have to fight the traffic.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting that area.
