We had made a booking for 5 nights at this hotel since it looked so nice in the pictures. Not a good idea. First of all the hotel is located outside Puerto Iguazu and there is nothing within walking distance that is worth visiting.
When we came into our room we were "greeted" by a sign that said that we would have to pay a huuuuge fine if we brought or own food and drinks into the room. Unfortunately the restaurant served food that is so boring and so not tasty that it is ridiculous. So we had to bring our own food (we sneaked it in so that they couldn't fine us :-)). During our stay we couldn't find anything on the menu that was ok.
The staff that worked at the hotel seemed so bored that they almost fell asleep. When we after three days decided that we had to find another place to stay at, no one reacted and asked why we check ot two days prior our original check out date, they just nodded and fell asleep again.
The swimingpool is the only thing that was ok with this resort since it was large and kids friendly.
