"Nice place nd pools but its too big"
This resort is huge. A lot of pools with a natural warm water, very relaxing. (very relaxing indeed). The food is ok, nothing exceptional. The only problem is when the place is full.You will not find a calm spot. It´s really close to the fall and to the Argentian border. Not so close to Paraguay.
"A great family-oriented resort!"
My two kids and I spent a long weekend at Mabu, and I highly recommend the place for families, with kids of any age (mine are 15 and 10). The three of us had a great time! Since our arrival, the staff was very helpful, more than happy to run any extra mile for us. The breakfast was everything we could wish for, and the swimming pools were just fantastic. It's worth noting that in the hotel there is a tourist desk, running by an agency called "Chamon". We hired them for our airport-hotel-airport transfer, and for all our trips to visit the local tourist attractions and their work was impeccable; also highly recommended!
"Perfect for the family! Perfeita pra a familia!"
We regularly visit Foz and love to stay at Mabu. The swimming pools are great for the kids and the Kids clubs are great to give us some time off!! The rooms are smart and clean. The food and the service does leave something to be desired. Its a shame that they havent realised the key to being a 5* hotel is the service. Barmen not knowing how to make a certain drink, or being told we can't order french fries at a certain bar is not the sign of a luxuary hotel. After living here, in Brazil, for 8 years I can clearly state that this is the height of luxury here...however on international standards you may find it lacking. We'll definitely be going back tho. 5 mins from the Casino for me at night, and 5 mins from the duty free shops and amazing waterfalls. Fantastic place!
"Fun for families but hardly luxurious"
Mabu markets itself as a luxury resort, but we found it fell short in a number of areas. Although virtually the whole hotel was booked for the conference we attended, blaring music was beamed to all areas all day in spite of requests to turn it down. It was impossible to network with other attendees in any part of the grounds, including the lake area. The pools are lovely and suited for families during holiday time, but most mature people found the loud music offensive.Not having a kettle in the room was a disadvantage, as every cup of tea or coffee had to be paid for. The drawers were dusty so cleanliness is an issue. Every visit to the bathroom by our neighbours could be heard through the walls. Information is not supplied in the room regarding meal times, places of interest to visit, or other useful tips, and although wifi is advertised as available in the bedrooms, we had to sit in the corridor to secure a connection. The same dishes were supplied for both buffet lunch and supper for five days. The best things about the hotel were the swift lifts and desserts!
"Resort with hot pools designed for families"
Rooms with two double beds had lots of space for a family. They had lots of desk space with a fridge but no kettle. The safe was unusual in that you had to collect a lock with a key from reception and it was not large enough for a laptop. We were first given a room overlooking the pools but the constant music played in the pool area was irritating so moved to a room on the other side that was more peaceful. There are lots of activities for kids and there is a mall across the street with some fastfood options but no supermarket.
