Sheraton offers the best location and the best view of the falls on the Argentine side. The other close hotels to the Park are at least a 20-30 minute ride away. By staying at the Sheraton, you can take a two-three hour walk through the park, come back to your room, eat and refresh and head back out to see more. The room rate is strictly for the convenience/location, the view and a very decent pool area.

Other than those three things, the hotel needs a lot of help-- it does not appear to have been updated in the last 20 years; tiny rooms are crammed full of furniture (and we were in a falls view premium top floor room) and the food is barely edible. Just a few examples-- The pastries and bread at breakfast were stale during our three-day stay. The dinner buffet was heavily laden with vinegar-marinaded meats and vegetables. And if you're looking for local flavors, think again. What was presented as a family/local chicken and rice stew recipe on the menu ended up being a look-alike for rice-a-roni with chunks of chicken in a bread bowl. On an excursion into town, we had a wonderful meal at a restaurant in Puerto Iguazu at half the price of the hotel so if the restaurant can get fresh food/bread delivered, I'm wondering why the hotel cannot manage it.

This was the most expensive stay we had in our entire three weeks in Argentina -- the least they could do is offer decent food for the $400 a night.

The location makes this hotel. Firstly, it is the only hotel situated within the Argentinean national park which makes it very easy to access the falls... the paths start right outside the back door. The view of the falls itself from the hotel is breathtaking and it can clearly be seen from all the common areas. We opted for a 'falls view' room and you really do get a fabulous view. There's a booking desk for excursions within the hotel itself and the staff were very friendly. We only had just over a day and the women organised a morning trip to the Brazilian side and the jungle explorer up the river in the afternoon... both of which I'd highly recommend... don't miss the boat trip! The room was very small and not of great quality, although it was clean and tidy. The restaurant felt more like a canteen, but some of the meat dishes were very tasty... room service on the balcony is the way to do it! In short, the hotel itself isn't that great. However, the location and view make it a must, especially for a short stay.

OK the hotel is not that great but it is clean and it is in the BEST possible location. My wife and I had only 21/2 days so we didn't want to waste time traveling back and forth and sitting in lines. We arrived late in the afternoon and our room was clean but old. It didn't matter because we changed and went into the park. We only had a couple of hours to look around but it was enough to get a plan for the next day.

The next day we got up early, had a decent breakfast and were on the trails as soon as they opened. This was GREAT because we were by ourselves, didn't see anyone for the first two hours. The falls are spectacular especially being surrounded by the rain forest. It was HOT and HUMID but since the hotel is so close we went back, jumped in the pool, had a drink and then went back out. We were told NOT to eat lunch in the hotel but to eat at the parks concession area. It is really close to the hotel and was fantastic. DO NOT eat at the window but go into the large cafeteria and sit down. The grilled meats and assorted salads are wonderful and the giant beers were ice cold. The best part is that it is CHEAP. That night we ate dinner at the hotel, it was good but expensive. There is nothing really to do so we had some wine and went to sleep. REMEMBER you are there to see and experience the Falls not the nightlife.

We had heard that the best views are from the Brazil side but we didn't want to deal with a visa. We talked to the bell hop and he pointed us to a guy who arranges taxi's etc. in the hotel. He set us up with a taxi driver who took us to the Brazil side. It is about an 1 1/2 hour drive but once there he was able to cut into the huge line and get us tickets and then gave us a tour of the falls. Unbelievable views!!! Even better he took us to an exotic bird sanctuary and pulled over on the bridge and took a picture of us on the Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay borders.
Later that night he picked us up and took us into town for a great dinner. Next afternoon he picked us up again and took us to the airport, it cost me about $300 US for all the taxi travel but it was well worth it and was a great experience.

Spend the extra money to be in the park, it will make your visit a lot easier and more enjoyable. Check out the roof deck at sunset, you can see for miles.
Funny story: After dinner my Wife and I were enjoying a glass of wine in the lobby when a tourist group entered. They immediatly started to get annoyed and went to the front desk to complain that they couldn't see the falls. They demanded to know what time the lights on the Falls were shut off and if there would be a light show the next night.

We got jungle view and stayed 3 nights. Only the smiling faces reminded me it is a Sheraton. The hotel is quite old. At night you have no other choice but the hotel's restaurant, yet the dishes are only so-so; try buffet dinner. Certainly, its location is excellent as it is the only hotel located inside the National Park (Argentina side). So in case you don't want to travel from town to the Park everyday, Sheraton is definitely an option.

We loved the Sheraton Iguazu! This hotel can't be beat on location! It is in the park with actual views of Iguazu falls!! I don't know if all of the rooms have falls views, but we had falls views and it was such a treat. I would try to request falls views before you go. If you don't get it, there are still really great views of the gorgeous park with lush pretty green trees. One thing to keep in mind is that you are actually in a giant park out in the middle of nature and there is no "5-star" hotel on the Argentina side of Iguazu Falls. Don't come expecting a city-like Sheraton room. It's a decent room in a park with modern amenities. Period. People come here to hike and visit the famous Iguazu waterfalls, so you are in sneakers and t-shirts. You sweat a lot from a lot of walking and hiking around, and you also get wet from the waterfall mist. The dinner buffet was very good with a nice variety. The a la carte menu also had a very nice selection. They also made good drinks and had good wines. The pool was really fun since you are surrounded by gorgeous trees and scenery, they have a really nice and impressive indoor pool too! All of the hotel staff was great. This is the best hotel for Iguazu Argentina!
