I would give it more than 5 stars if I could
A room with a view of the Falls! It was spectacular! The hotel is gorgeous, service is great, bar is one of a kind, and we enjoyed the restaurants. What more could you want? After a long day at the Falls, sat at the pool and watched a 4 foot iguana make his way through to get a drink! I could have stayed her a LOT longer than 2 nights!
Amazing hotel, everything was perfect. From the moment we arrived until leaving we had the best attention. I would like to thank yasmin kedzierski that made our check in, in a couple of seconds and gave us all the orientations for our stay in the hotel. She is such a professional and polite lady. I will absolutely go back and recomend this hotel to my friends. The best thing of this hotel together all the beautiful things it offers, was the attention we had.
Beautiful setting, fantastic service fabulous rooms
We were very fortunate to be upgraded to a room with a private pool. If we had know how lovely it was we would have booked it. A beautifully restored more traditional hotel with very comfortable beds. If you are visiting The waterfalls at Fos Iguazú then this is the only hotel you should consider. Being situated in the National Park you have private access to the waterfall walk before and after it is open to the public which is very special. Service on the hotel is exceptional and whilst it is expensive it is absolutely worth the cost. We will definitely revisit a look to stay longer than the 2 days we stay last time.
Exclusive Iguacu National Park Access, Historic & Beautiful Setting, and Friendly Service
Best part: getting to visit Iguacu National Park outside of normal visiting hours! Considering the park can receive up to 12,000 visitors daily during peak season (December - February), the value of this exclusive ‘after-hours’ access for hotel guests is immeasurable. One early morning I walked the 100 steps from the hotel front door to the first Falls viewing platform, and was the only one there! Room Tips: The hotel has a sprawling layout. Communicate preferences and any special needs when initially making your reservation to improve your experience. For example, those with limited mobility may want to request a room closer to the central areas, if kids want to be close to the pool request the Garden Wing, rooms facing inward toward the hotel courtyards can often be quieter than those facing the road (where buses drive by frequently during park hours), and if you want a bathtub make sure it’s specified in your booking as not all rooms have one. The Superior Rooms are just barely large enough for bed and two nightstands, whereas Deluxe Rooms have a bit more space and are in my opinion more comfortable for two people. An upgrade to a Deluxe Falls View room is certainly nice, however you can also save a bit on budget here knowing that the same views of the Falls are available to you from the bar patio and front lawn of the hotel, without the additional cost. The Suites are not overly spacious by modern-built luxury hotel standards, except the bathrooms are expansive and excellently updated. For something really special they also have two new Pool Suites which have their own private plunge pools! Each Suite is unique in layout and level of privacy, so for bookings I’d call their reservationists rather than booking based on the few website photos. The hotel has many connecting rooms as well, excellent for families. Dining: At the 3 convenient on-site restaurants - fine-dining, a more casual poolside grill, and a bar with light fare - food was pricier here relative to other hotels in the region. The Ipe Grill had great food that felt like most international visitors would be able to find something to their tastes. For the bar patio looking towards the falls, arrive early in order to claim a coveted spot for sunset. The fine-dining restaurant Itaipu can also fill up far in advance, especially during the peak season months of December - February, so make a reservation prior to your stay. Hotel: The Das Cataratas grounds are beautiful, many gorgeous orchids and birds. The expansive pool (a must in the subtropical and humid Atlantic rainforest) had sufficient loungers and although many hotels in the region have pools, this was a level all its own! The decor has a historic element unique when compared to other properties in the area, being lavishly decorated as a throwback to the 1950s - and it does not feel old and stuffy as I feared from photos but rather elegant and airy. The massages and spa treatment menus seemed normal to offerings for a 5-star property, but the spa and steam room were not open in the morning only after noon. There is an impressive amount of staff (not overbearing, but very present), and all who I interacted with were the epitome of service and friendliness. From the hotel it is easy to shuttle to activities like the Macuco Safari boat rides, the Das Aves Bird Park, and an option for Helicopter tours. I’d recommend a minimum of two night stay, while three nights allows a more relaxed pace to experience more of the region and enjoy the hotel amenities. Definitely give yourself time to visit both sides of the Falls, the Brazilian side and the Argentine side, for two very different and stunning experiences!
Incredible property in an amazing location
We treated ourselves to staying here so we could have the closest and easiest access to the park and a little rest & relaxation on our few days of vacation here. We were blown away but the incredible service, the gorgeous ground, the all hours access to the falls, the free nature walk in the morning, the breadth of food options, the amazing pool with its attentive servers, the wine bar with excellent recommendations and the amazing breakfast buffet! We took advantage of as much as we could and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would absolutely stay again and recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable and special trip to Iguazu falls, It really was an incredible hotel and made our visit really enjoyable! Really cannot recommend the property, staff, location or service highly enough, worth every penny!
