Fabulous hotel, best choice for uncrowded access to the falls
We only had 2 nights here, but we loved it. The hotel is the only one inside the falls national park, which is why we booked it. Being able to access the falls before the park opens and after it closes is priceless, such a great way to see them without all the crowds. We arrived by taxi, you have to get out at the hotel entrance gate 15 mins from the hotel as it is private grounds. There is a free hotel shuttle minibus every few minutes that takes you to the hotel. Check in was smooth, and we were soon in our room. The room itself was great, decent size, nice bathroom and comfortable bed. One day we just returned to our room and heard a knocking sound, looked up and a toucan was sat outside our window knocking on the window with his beak. Amazing! Breakfasts here were fantastic. Buffet based, but very good quality and great selection. We loved sitting outside watching the coatis and the birds whilst we ate. As the hotel isn't near to anywhere else we also ate dinner here, again the buffet was delicious. I'm vegetarian and found plenty of options. We also enjoyed sitting out front in the bar area with a cocktail, you get complimentary olives and crisps with each drinks order which was nice. One evening there was a massive storm and we sat outside but under cover, mesmerised by the battering rain and huge lightning storm. The pool is fairly small but given that there was only one other couple there when we went it didn't matter. The loungers had super comfy mattresses on, and it was bliss sitting sipping a cocktail and watching the toucans in the trees. Only one word of warning. As we left the hotel on checkout, we noticed a small sign by the hotel exit, that there was a jaguar mum and cub in the area, and not to go out alone on the trails, especially at night. Nobody had mentioned this to us when we checked in, and the sign was so small and place such that you could only see it on the way out of the hotel, so we'd been totally unaware. The evening prior we'd actually gone out on the waterfall trails to watch the sunset in the peace and quiet, and it was a bit scary to think the danger we could have been in. The hotel really should make such warnings much more prominent to guests. Overall we loved this hotel and feel it was well worth the price premium for the benefit of out of hours waterfalls access.
Superb hotel in a superb location
A beautiful hotel in the middle of nature and facing the Iguaçu Falls. The breakfasts are presented elegantly in the form of an excellent buffet very varied. The restaurants offer fine cuisine. Perfect service. Very comfortable rooms and bedding. Several possibilities of relaxation and sport
We stayed 3 nights at the Belmond Das Cataratas. Every day and evening were exceptional. They organized transit to and from the Argentina airport - could not have managed this without them. Both restaurants and the breakfast were all exceptional. This was a trip of a lifetime. At first blush it seems a bit pricey but overall was very reasonable for the experience, food and service to make a great vacation to Iguazu Falls.
This hotel is in a fantastic location, right up to the Iguassu Falls; really astonishing! The hotel itself is very very good; big clean rooms, great breakfast buffet with all sort of fruit, beautiful gardens with toucans in the trees and Coatis on the ground (do not touch them, they bite and scratch!). I could have stayed there for much longer!
Good hotel, excellent location but appalling service in the bar
Excellent hotel overall except for one thing. Getting drinks at the bar before dinner was a nightmare. Not enough staff to service the number of customer. 50 mins from sitting down to getting our drinks and even this involved chasing the staff to come and give us the drinks menu and then again to take our order two or three times. This happened both nights we were there
