I found the hotel brilliant.The staff were amongst the friendliest and helpful I have come across in a long term.Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.In particular I would like to mention Rafaela on the Reception Desk for her efficiency and friendly manner, and Fabiana Arena Dias. His attitude and the way he always made us feel welcome was second to none.
The porters unhelpfulness on our arrival. They only showed any interest in our baggage when it was time to take the bags to our room.
Comfortable room. Proximity to the waterfalls.
The room was moderate in size and had no view and it was too expensive. For about UK£400 for dinner, bed and breakfast I expect a large room and a view! Poor value for money - I booked a "superior" room!
Everything, the location, the decoration, people, food and of course the surrounding
Perfect location to view the Falls. The service from all staff was impeccable. Yes it is expensive, but the facilities and service are worth the price.
Its location is perfect, right in front of the waterfalls. The service is very kind and the hotel very beautiful.
The view of the water falls just in front of the hotel is exceptionnal !! The rooms are very well decorated, comfortable and modern. The swimming pool, in the middle of the nature, is amazing. Wonderful location.
The food is really not at the level where it should be, taking into account the quality of the hotel. For lunch, I ordered a chicken sandwich within grilled bread, the bread was at least 2 days old, and the bread was not grilled at all. The fries beside were really not fresh, really bad food !!
