We stayed 2 nights here recently. I wanted to experience the rainforest, but boy did it rain....
The owners were away & the acclaimed restaurant was shut. We knew this & had arrangements to eat next door at Pousada Las Bromelias.
The room was lovely.Absolutely recommend you book Loft 2. Best position overlooking the falls.
The setting is lovely & the nightly trip down to the sauna for a dip in the falls & a sauna was great.
We dont speak Portuguese & as with most of Brazil we struggled to find many English speakers. I speak Spanish & personally find the written word not that different, but we had a few problems in the gite, probably not helped by the owner being away. There was no hot water & we had a 18 hour power cut. the power cut was fine, we had candles & I lit the fire (a challenge when everything is damp!) The lack of hot water, though solved by access to one of the basic rooms showers was frustrating as all that was required was a replacement gas cannister. I tried to explain this in Portuguese & via pictures etc, but all they did was shrug. As we were the only visitors, one could have been swapped from another room...
We had breakfast in the restaurant which was the usual continental style. The food at the neighbours was great, so im sure Le Gite is fabby, but the restaurant did look very run down, which probably explains the current closure.
I would go back for the room & setting. The loft is v nice, otherwise its a basic back to nature place. Bromelias looks to be a higher star rating, bit more polished, with a nice pool, but nothing beats Loft 2s setting & you can always wander next door.
Loft 2 is the best
