Experience of a lifetime
I’m a globe trotter and I can tell by far that it was an unique experience! The hotel gives it all and it completely changes your stay in the falls. The national park closes at 5 PM, but the guests are able to use it at anytime. Grab a bottle of wine and go for a sunset alone overviewing the falls.
Thank you for this wonderful experience
The Belmond chain was new to me, I had travelled to several countries and knew the usual big famous hotels. This one combines several elements which make it unique, such as the locations in truly magic places, staff not only well trained but warm and welcoming, small gifts you find in your bed from time to time which besides being lovely have a very nice psychological effect, amazingly inviting and clean swimming pool, various options for dining etc. A really special memory I will carry with me, thank you.
Blown away by the incredible service, the food, the people, the location and the experiences. They took COVID precautions seriously and provided a safe, fun experience. The morning tour before the park opens is a must!
unbeatable five stars at the heart of the Iguazu falls!
Stayed four nights at the Belmond Cataratas with the wife and our six year old. The hotel is marvelous, has private access to the falls, impressive cuisine and polite, attentive staff that exceeded our expectations. Given the pandemic in Brazil we inquired about safety protocols and they are top notch. They won't exceed 30% capacity resulting in a feeling of having the hotel all to ourselves most of the day. Had a spatious, comfortable king bed garden view room, pampered with personalized pillows, daily local treats and pleasant bath amenities made with local ingredients. The hotel has two restaurants, a pool, an outdoor pool bar, an indoor bar, a salon, spa parlour, business center, shops, tennis court, outdoor giant chess set, kids club, lookout tower, long bicycle and walking tracks and much more to keep you entertained. You can also book many fall related activities at the activity desk. The a-la-carte food in the indoor restaurant surpasses other five star hotel restaurants we've been to. Possibly the best risotto and octupus I had outside Italy (imho). Cheff and kitchen staff do a superb job and deliver on the five star rating by themselves alone!. Room service is also highly recommended especially If you are exhausted. The hotels private access to the Iguazu falls is golden, even more so should your stay include Mondays as the falls are closed to the general public but not to the hotel guests. We made the most of it, having the falls to ourselves for over three hours before deciding to return without meeting a-single-person along the way. The hotel has a very interesting cachaça tasting programme. Cachaça is a local distilled spirit akin to rum. I highly recommend the Premium tasting, it has a couple of well aged, refined Cachaças that are amazing on the pallate. You will most likely run into interesting fauna right in the hotel on a stroll or by the pool. Colorful birds, funny quatis, or astounding iguanas. Keep your eyes and cameras ready. One could complain about bugs (they sting, hotel provides natural bugspray) or about the occasional loud helicopter overflying the falls and hotel, but those are external factors and come with the location (basically unbeatable). I will recommend this hotel to just about everyone, it has almost a 70 year history, a privilege location, a private access to largest falls in the world, great facilities, a remarkable local and international cuisine and among the most attentive and polite staff you find in a five star hotel. I'm already looking forward to our return.
A must go!
The details, the location, the room, the staff, exceeded all my expectations (and they were really high!) Have traveled the world and I can say this hotel is one of the top 3 ever! Have recommended it to everyone I know! It’s definitely a must go! You must add this hotel in your bucket list! You won’t regret it! (but don’t forget: you will pay for all the exclusivity!)
