Need Iguazu Hotel Advice

Recommended Posts

The Sheraton is full on the dates we will be at Iguazu. The Iguazu Grand Hotel and Casino has been suggested as an option. Does anyone have any advice about the Grand or could suggest another hotel?

Thanks

On the Brazilian side of the Falls, there is a hotel called the Tropical Das Cataratas. We are staying there when we visit in March. We have not stayed there before, but I have read good things about it. Its view of the Falls is not as spectacular as the view from the Sheraton, apparently, but it is situated within the park (which was important to us) and you can easily go from one side to the other. You will need a visa for Brazil, however, if you had not planned on getting one. We are actually spending 3 days at Iguazu so we can take advantage of some of the programs offered by the hotel.

I stayed at the Tropical Das Cataratas in 2002 and it was a wonderful hotel. Not all modern, but well maintained for a classic hotel, with a long history of Presidents and other dignitaries staying there. Although the view from the rooms is not great (except for the Presidential Suite), the (included) breakfast can be eaten on the terrace with a view of the Argentina side of the falls, and it is a short stroll to the top of the many paths with great views on the Brazilian side. You can easily take the park shuttle from here to the Zodiac boats that go under the falls. Their prix fix dinner (Brazilian barbecue) was a deal ($11 US) for all you could eat, and they had a great combo playing at dinner, which is served in a pavilion poolside.

I agree with Splinter. I took my mother to the Brasilian side and stayed at the same hotel and it was wonderful. Be sure to take helicopter tour before you go into park to see the falls. The majority of the falls are on the Argentine side, but the majority of the view is on the Brasilian side. Bought one of those carved birds, that sit on beautiful natural stone. Much cheaper than Rio.
