Travel Blogs from Puerto Iguazu

I'm loving Iguazu

A travel blog entry by cherub94


On the plane to Iguazu, you notice that everyone is a tourist and obviously, as we are on our way to (in my opinion) one of the wonders of the world. As we get closer the change in landscape is significant from that of Buenos Aires. We are going to the jungle that is for sure. The ground is packed with trees and it becomes decieving to the eyes as …

Practical advice, Great Adventure and Big Water

A travel blog entry by nickfear


I have vague recollections of my sister telling me about the South American drink "mate" from when she lived in Brazil. I had no idea of the cultural significance of this - it seems to be much more important than tea to the British. Its drunk everywhere by everyone of all classes and ages - but never in cafes, its always made at home drunk at home …

    Very Very Average Hotel


    10 mins walk from the town centre where all the bars and restos are. Quite safe to walk it at night (or at least I thought so).

    Worst front desk service I've experienced.


    My husband and I stayed at the Esturion Hotel during a recent trip to Iguazu Falls. We could not believe how inept and unresponsive the hotel staff was. No matter what topic or issue we brought up, they were either unable or unwilling to provide assistance. For example, the day before we were leaving we asked the desk if they could arrange for a shuttle to take us to the airport. They said we had to call a company ourselves. I asked if they could give me a name and phone number and the desk clerk replied I could call any of the local companies. I was somewhat taken back and tried a few more times to get more information but finally decided to give up before I jumped over the desk to throttle the man. A little while later, I returned to the desk and asked to speak to the manager. They called the clerk I had been speaking with before. I told him I wanted the hotel to call a shuttle for us. For some reason, he agreed and made the arrangements I had asked for in the first place. It was this way with every bit of help and information we requested. And none of the people behind the desk wore name plates - a practice I find unprofessional.

    Too much work to be done at this hotel


    A really nice hotel from the outside. Excellent location and magnificent views, but the problems start with the front desk staff.

    Just enough for the basisc.....


    I stayed at Esturion for 2 nights. From the outside, it's a really beautiful hotel. When you pull up and get out of your vehicle, if you look to the right, you have a gorgeous view of the pool and the beatiful mountains and river.

    Decent hotel


    The Esturion is a good, but not great hotel. My stay there was pleasant but not memorable, and while I wouldn't disuade someone from staying there I wouldn't go out of way to recommend it either.

    Great place once we upgraded


    The standard room they gave us was terrible. We upgraded to a much better room and had a great view of the river. The pool and bar was nice. Downfalls, there was some construction when we were there. Spend the extra money on the upgrade it is worth it.

    Loved Esturion


    I spend two nights in the Esturion Hotel and I would highly recomended.

    It has very nice views to the river and rainforest. It is very new, nice decoration and a big swimming with views. The roomds are big and have a terrace.

    You can walk to the town centre (very small) only five minutes walk to the shops.

    The breakfast and dinner are good as well and the caipirinas!!.

    But be patient with the service: we had to wait for the check in and the waiters were a bit slow.

    Overall I woulg highly recomended. I would go again.

    We went to see the Sheraton and it's got amazing views but it's very old, furniture horrible (white plastic table and chairs in the terrace) and horrible sofas. It's overpriced and at night you don't see the waterfalls.

    An unfriendly construction site


    We have been booked in this hotel by our BA tour operator. When we arrived at the hotel at lunch time, we did not note the (much needed by the way) construction going on, as everybody was having lunch. We had to climb over open pavements and boards and down a dirty staircase, carring our luggage, to find a room in a somewhat desolate condition, out of time and not cleaned. They let us change room to another, bigger room, but not clean as well. The door to the toilet could not been opened, as the toilet was half in the room. We however had a nice balcony going to the river and thus decided to stay all the same, as we had booked for only two nights. Then construction works started again and the whole building was trembling from the hammering. We longed for the swimming pool after time in the cool Andes parts of Argentina, so we thought lets go to the pool, have lunch and relax. But then, we found the pool empty, under construction as well. We complained with the reception but they got angry at us and ignored us. We asked to speak to the manager and explained to him. We told him, that where we come from, guests are informed about such major constructions going on. He just told us to call our tour operator, not very helpful either. Fortunately our tour operator (Ripio Turismo) within 20 minutes changed us to the beautiful Cataratas Hotel without charging us for the upgrade. He had not been informed by the hotel when he made the reservation for us.

    A Nightmare Stay


    When we first arrived we checked into a room with cigarette butts and urine left in the toliet. The room obviously had not been cleaned. Then we moved to anohter room which was cleaner, but the ac did not work. We decieded to stay anyway because we would only be there for two nights. When we came back from dinner bugs were all over the bed. They moved us to another room where they where doing construction. There were actually bugs in that room also, but we were exhausted by that point. The electricity went out while we where there and so they forgot to give us our wake up call, leaving us only ten minutes to pack and get ready to leave. The pool had been drained when we arrived. The truth is the lobby is beautiful, but the hotel is not. You are impressed when you first arrive, then are dissapointed when you get to your room, and the staff is not very helpful or friendly. The location of the hotel is also not good. It is located far from the city. It is the only hotel in its area. The Saint Geroge is a much better bet.

    The real essence of Iguazu


    Being in Hotel Esturion is to feel the real essence of Provincia de Misiones. You won't find those heavy red courtains to show luxury, but a decoration according to the place. Excellent attention, ammenities and good food.
