San Martin resort & spa is 10 kilometres outside Foz do Iguaçu and 2,5 kilometres from the airport. Bus no 120 connects the hotel with the airport, the city and the entrance to Iguazú falls. (Even thou the entrance is better reached by foot since it is only 400 meters from the hotel.)

A bus ticket costs about 0,85 € and is bought onboard. Busses leaves at least every 30 minutes.

The entrance to the hotel gives you hope, but when you enter the building, it feels more like a big hostel. Maybe it is because of the colour scheme.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Check-in rather quick (for Brazil).

Our room was a standard room. Big enough and had what we needed for one night’s stay. Unfortunately was our room covered in a bad smell (sewer). The reception offered us a new room without any discussion and also upgraded us to a bigger room. This room smelled from mould - but was ok for one night.

Breakfast is included and is served in a big canteen type restaurant. Food was decent, not more.

The hotel have a big nice pool area with plenty of sun beds (and plenty of flies). We tried the food from the pool bar and it was disgusting. The drinks where good thou.
Free and reasonably fast Wi-Fi.

I can only recommend this hotel for one reason - the location. If you come to see the falls (and maybe the next-door bird park) is the location brilliant which outweighs the downsides of the hotel. You can walk to everything, even the airport if you do not have loads of luggage.

We chose this hotel as it was close to the entry to the Brazilian side of the falls - it was mid price and the quality matched. Staff not all that friendly but I guess they don’t get paid very much to be welcoming ! I would recommend with some warnings including the beds are pretty average!

National Park is at walking distance. Airport is nearby (no hotel shuttle available, but taxi rides are convenient). The place is very quiet and offers a nice natural environment.
Service is fine, and the distance to other tourist attractions in the city can be covered without problem.

So at first you think fancy resort and spa... then you walk inside it smells weird musky with airfreshner , and it looks dark.
Check in the lady I had was not that helpfull preferred talking to my guide in portugees instead of a dressing me properly.
Gave me a paper with rules to sign without any explanation, of what's in it. One crazy rule "Its absolutely prohibited to bring food and drinks into the hotel" say what !!! Crazy rule.
Then in my opinion and experience I have, when you book, and you're flight is booked and arrival time is known aprox, they shoukd take the effort to have you're room ready instead of placing you in loby for several hours, I did go on walk tho.
The lady at the desk didn't even looked into it if my room maybe was already ready, check in is at 3. And not before.
The room looks nice, but it's old and pretty cheap. The bathroom is just dirt, missing tiles and dirty.
The hotel offered very modern wifi for free everywhere ... but in the room not one single outlet in view to charge you're phone, tablet, camera, like really?!
I checked behind the tv, also cheapass tv on standard, would have been way more fancy on a wall mount, anyway behind the tv 2 outlets hidden, in the bathroom you're 1 outlet for shaving, but now a days outlets next to the bed should be standard.
Overall the impression I got, is that they wanne look really fancy and luxurious, but they are so not, just an ok place. The other thing I noticed in comparison with the old style and cheap stuff Inn the rooms and not outlets in plain site to see.
They have this keycard system for opening you're room... And at the restaurant and bar they work with tablets, and the rule of not allowed to bring food in the hotel, I got this feeling their more concerned about making money and get the bills right and payed with this modern stuf instead of investing to make it really fancy for their guest and accommodate them. Overall just an ok place, at a good location tho.

Nice hotel with overall friendly staff except for one lady at the reception. Dyed blond hair who certainly had the looks to represent the hotel at the front desk but in terms of guest relations she has some training to do. She was not particularly friendly, never showed a smile on her face like the other frontdesk staff.
The hotel has the ambiance of an high-end hotel but isn't quite there. Breakfast area didn't breath a warm atmosphere and food offering was acceptable but not more than that. Location is perfect. Top attractionss are at walking distance.
