Belmond Hotel das Cataratas
Ranked #1 of 80 Hotels in Foz do Iguacu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2014

A magnificent hotel.

Greeting at reception was perfect and comprehensive, explaining all the amenities and walking us to our room. We were upgraded to a deluxe room in the Garden Wing, the newest part of the hotel with wide corridors, deep-pile carpets, polished wood.

Our huge pale green and yellow room was beautiful with a massive bed, free bottles of water and a large safe. Free wifi, no password required, throughout the hotel. Loved the free Havaianas.

Beautiful bathroom and a lovely shower, especially after arriving hot and sticky from a visit to the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls.

Dinner in the poolside restaurant began with very good caipirinhas. We both had the Brazilian barbecue buffet which was massive and a meat-lovers feast: apart from the many starters including a fantastic Brazilian catfish soup and brie in pastry with berries, there were various cuts of beef from fillet to rib, lamb, pork, and chicken. Plenty of salads, a wonderful array of breads and a table of desserts - excellent creme brulee.

The breakfast was by far the best we had on this trip. Lots of hot foods like bacon, sausage, roesti, plus a cook on hand making perfect omelettes; cereals, yogurts, a huge array of fresh fruit, freshly-squeezed juices, breads, home-made jams (pineapple particularly good), sweet pastries and cakes.

Perfect location for viewing Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side before the crowds arrive.

Service at the pool is just fantastic. Every now and again someone comes around bringing cold facecloths or refreshments such as cold juice cocktails, fresh fruit skewers.

We loved the staff at this hotel and their English was wonderful. Our room had a lovely view of the falls. The bar in the hotel was very nice. The workout center was small but had what we wanted. Our driver was wonderful and took us places in the park. There was a ropes course next door to do tree adventures. It was well done and there were some elements I had not done before in the US. The food was very good. I would recommend this hotel!

Many times on our travels we've found that hotels (and restaurants) in stunning locations often get away with lousy service and inflated prices. Hotel des Cataratas was a wonderful exception to this rule. Obviously the location is unbelievable (the ability to stroll down to the falls early morning or evening when all the crowds have gone is fantastic) but in addition the service was absolutely world class; our room was lovely; the pool was excellent and we had two great meals. It's expensive but worth every penny.

My wife and I stayed here as part of an Adventure World package. The hotel is just plain magnificent!
Service could not be faulted, the food is to die for, Reception staff are just so helpful- in short everything works.
Having the Falls at the bottom of the garden is the icing on the cake. Pricey, yes, but worth it.
Champagne included in the breakfast buffet says it all!

Stayed 2 nights in this fabulous hotel.We wanted to stay in the park itself and as this was the only hotel in the Brazilian part of the park, were not expecting much as we were a captive audience. How wrong we were.This is a beautiful, colonial style hotel of the highest quality, the sort of hotel you would be happy to stay in for weeks even without the stunning views of the falls and the fact that you had exclusive access to them before the park opened and after it closed.
Room was stunning as was the pool area. Restaurants were delightful and the food excellent and the staff could not do enough for you,. Everything at this hotel was of the highest quality, expensive, of course, but worth every penny(or real)

The hotel is in the best location possible for visitors to Iguassu Falls. The service and the staff are exceptional. The food is excellent and the ambience a real Colonial pleasure. We had a wonderful stay in this special hotel.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a room with a view of the falls.

Our trip to Brazil can't get any better! Starting with "location, location and location".
Located in the Iguacu National Park, we have private park access from 7am - 9am and 5pm - 7pm, everyday. No other crowds or tourist to compete with for viewing the awesome falls.
Now other exceptional services include rooms with a view of the falls.
Direct pick up from airport
Wondeful dining options including free breakfast, Brazil bbq buffet or poolside service.
The staff is very knowledgable and friendly. Could go on and on...

Room Tip: Can't miss.
