We had been allocated a “free” timeshare and decided to combine a trip to Iguazu Falls with a bird-watching tour of the Pantanal. Puerto Iguazu allows easy access to both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of the Falls using public [ or private] transport. Buses from the airport drop off at the hotel.
The Hotel Pirayu has several “bungalows” available for timeshare as well as part of a more modern hotel complex. The grounds are set back from the Av, Tres Fronteras along which local buses run 5 blocks into town. Several small shops are just across the road for basic provisions.
Every bungalow had its own parking space and set in a leafy environment. Our bungalow consisted of a kitchen/sitting room, bathroom and double bedroom. Cooking facilities were adequate and included a microwave, gas top [ no oven or grill], fridge/freezer. Internet was only available in the hotel reception area, which was modern, well-lit and comfortable. This was to be expected due to the extent of the grounds. Each bungalow was provided with digital televisi¬on. Both rooms had individual air conditioning and ceiling fans and had fly screens, so could be ventilated. The rooms were reasonably secure though no safe was provided.
Our reception was friendly and all staff helpful and efficient. The rooms were cleaned regularly, again by friendly staff.
Residents have access to a swimming pool and gym complex and tours can be arranged through the hotel.More
