Beautiful, outstanding hotel, located next to the entrance to the Iguacu falls park. The hotel is in lodge style, on a single level, in a huge tropical park, with trails leading down to the river. The rooms are simple, but adequate and in any case you aren't going to use them for anything but sleeping. There's a nice swimming pool,... More

Very friendly staff! Hotel is not expensive. Food is good, although I can not understand why bacon for breakfast is an extra you have to pay for. Rooms are clean and spacous enough. The birds from the the parc des aves, which is nearby, are very early in the morning beginning to communicate; jungle-feelings. There is no wlan in the... More

San Martin Hotel is located within a few minutes' walk to the entrance of the Brazil side of the Iguacu Falls park. Although the location was wonderful and the resort grounds look lovely, I would not recommend this place as a base point for travelers who wish to see the falls. Foz do Iguacu is only about a 40 minute... More

We chose the hotel for its location- a few minutes from airport, can walk to bird aviary and to visitor center of Brazil side of the Falls national park. The hotel is one story, but spread out with a few wings. It is older, but the public areas were nicely kept-- the pool area/landscaping was especially nice,(relaxing after a day... More

I've stayed at the Hotel San Martin several times when visiting Foz do Iguaçu. I love this place, and that's what keeps me coming back. The hotel is located only about 200-300 meters from the entrance to the Brazilian park. It's right next to the Bird Park. It's only about 4 kilometers from the airport--very convenient all around. The hotel... More

The room was simple but clean. The swimming pool was excellent, food not very good and pricey. The highlight of the hotel is that it's very close to the entrance of the fall's park.

After reading the reviews in Trip Advisor I went to the San Martin Hotel with no expectations. I was so wrong.

This hotel seemed to us to be an old resort that probably used to be a destination in itself, but is now, for most people, just a two-day stopover while visiting the falls. There is a feeling of "faded elegance." The best part is the grounds, which are spacious and well-kept, and include a lovely pool area and beautiful nature... More
