Property location is unrivaled, and provides a stunning view of the area around it. Language barrier was more noticeable than I expected for an individual who usually knows enough Spanish to have a conversation with a local. The only concern was the limited availability of food since the hotel is so removed and only has one restaurant. Don't ever let that keep you from booking with this hotel though, this is by far the best hotel in Iguazu and the limited food options just require visitors to plan ahead is all.

As close to heaven as it gets. The food and amenities were great. The pool was fantastic.

Lovely hotel minutes from the falls. The staff are hellbent on providing good service to you from the moment you arrive. Bell boys, reception, waiters in the restaurant, all seem to want to help you with anything you need without delay. There’s only one restaurant but they do provide a nice breakfast spread, and an extensive buffet dinner. Staying right at the falls means you’re captive when it comes to meals, but the convenience of being able to access the falls anytime you want from 8am-6pm cannot be beat. If prioritizing where to spend money, it’s an additional expense that is highly recommended. The alternative, Puerto Iguazu is about 18km away, and you’ll need a taxi to get to the park center.

It was a pleasant stay. Since it is located inside the park, it saves time. By 9:00 am, you could walk to the waterfalls. The air is so fresh in the morning and scenery is so beautiful. It is like a paradise.

Being in the Iguazu park and not spending time to get there is the main reason to select this hotel. Still, breakfast is extremely good and rooms are clean as they should be. Alcohol in the bar is way overpriced. Go to the cantina in the park (<5 min, but closing at 5 pm) and buy some for at least 2 times less and bring it back to your room.

In room dining is fast , evrything else is so slow.

loved the location of the hotel. i don't have to rush in and out of the Iguazu National Park. I take my time enjoying the scenery. very convenient.

Maybe the rooms and hotel isn't as fancy as the price would suggest. But the location makes up for it! When you walk into to the lobby and see the falls behind the glass, it is wonderful. The rooms are clean, well cared for, the staff is super helpful. The breakfast buffet had a huge variety of all kinds of delicious food. The town is far away and the hotel is pretty much your only food option. But it is all worth it for the quiet half hour in the morning when you have the national park to yourself before the visitors arrive in the first train from the bottom. In the morning we could see the toucans flying through the air from our balcony. At night you can hear the roar of the falls and you feel the heavy darkness of the semi-tropical darkness around you. It was expensive, but so worth it for an amazing experience to treasure!

The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Directions and maps to the upper and lower trails could be more clear, and driving there from the park entrance was not well marked. Even considering where it is, it's too expensive. Still, for visitors to the falls, this is THE place to stay.

Beautiful setting, wonderful time, the Sheraton was very accommodating.

Great location inside Iguazu Falls park. Fantastic view of falls from room.

The hotel was wonderful. The location is spectacular. The staff is wonderful and helpful. It was just terrific to stay in that hotel. I would recommend it without any reservations. Thanks

No air conditioning in a he room. Room smells and clothes do not get dry.

Great location. The view of the falls is spectacular. You can walk form the hotel to the falls. Biggest problem was the pool was closed. Not sure if it was under construction. I would stay there again and recommend to friends.

If you can afford it a MUST if you are visiting the falls. It cannot be emphasized enough how great it is to stay right at the falls and be the first ones in the park before it opens to the public in the morning. This was my second stay and even after a lackluster 1st stay I have recommended it to everyone I talk to about travelling to Iguaszu and just stayed there again myself with friends. The biggest downside is that it's got a lot of mold and mildew issues owing to the extreme humidity of the location and the high price. Room décor is ok and the balconies overlooking the falls are a very nice plus. If its your first time spring the extra $50 or so for a falls view room. You cant look at them enough!

Rooms ok amenities ok food just ok. Location is everything for this hotel

When we first arrived in our room the door was not able to open due to a piece of the ceiling falling down it toom about 30 min for someone to come and fix it, then we discovered the safe was not working, another 30 min wait. The hotel is outdated and dirty, the staff is rude and slow, the food is disgusting, rotten fruit and vegetables at breakfast buffet. Waiting over an hour for overpriced dinners to come out and they were cold due to the fact they were sitting in kitchen not brought out by incompetent staff. I would not stay here while location is great, you can walk onto the falls the hotel is way overpriced and not at all worth the convenience, stay somewhere else and get shuttle to park.

After reading several reviews about this hotel, we weren't expecting to be overwhelmed. But we were blown away with the location, the staff, our room and the amenities! Everyone took excellent care of us and were so pleasant and helpful. Our room on the 3rd floor waterfall side had a breathtaking view, bathrobes, more toiletries than any of the Marriott hotels that we normally stay at. Granted we did pay more than we normally do on vacation but the location made it well worth it. Our only issue was the cost of the transfer from the airport which we expected to have been included in the cost but otherwise no complaints. This was a once in the lifetime trip to Iguazu Fall and we ended up having an even better adventure than we expected.

Best location for the park. Wake up to see falls from balcony. Breakfast was good. Dinner could be better since it's one of the only options near the hotel
