    Perfect Engagement

    We stayed at the Hotel Das Cataratas for 7 nights. The park is closed to visitors from 5pm to 9am, so the park is reserved specifically for the hotel guests. A few times we were the only ones at the falls. COVID precautions were well taken care of. The staff all wore masks, hand sanitizer was readily available, and social distancing was in place at all of the dining locations. We scheduled a private airport transfers with concierge. The driver was very nice, professional, and on time. The grounds are The service from the staff was impeccable. Specifically, Rodrigo at the Bar Taroba was overly generous, he made our night multiple times. The junior suite with the private pool was.. The room was perfect. From the furnishings to the included amenities, everything was luxurious. The details of the proposal were perfect. We planned a picnic overlooking the falls for the special moment. The Belmond helped organize the picnic and hire a fantastic photographer. If you need to plan a special occasion, the Belmond is second to none. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough! One of the best experiences of my life so far!

    Belmond is a must for an Iguaçu vacation! A+ stay!

    My Mother/Daughter stay during Christmas at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas was maravilhoso!!! The hotel, rooms, and grounds are beautiful and the restaurant is wonderful. My 10-yo and I really enjoyed the large pool and playing on the life-sized chess board! The staff is very accommodating and can communicate in Portuguese, English, and Spanish! The Christmas Gala Dinner on Christmas Eve was delicious, as was the Christmas Brunch! We felt pampered by all the service and awesome food. We also loved all the nice gifts we got - a panettone, cookies, toy for my daughter, and the Havaiana flip flops! Such great touches all around. If I'm ever back in Iguaçu, I will ABSOLUTELY be staying at the Belmond again!

    Fantastic hotel, 5 stars! The food was great. The property is beautiful. The trail to the falls is right in front of the hotel, and there are lots of activities you can sign up for inside the park. However, the falls, pool, and property are so nice that we didn’t do much else (except the Bird Park, which is awesome!). If you are staying in the area to see the falls, this is definitely the nicest, most convenient hotel. But there are very cheap places close to the park if you are more budget conscious. Right now tourism is very light, so you will have no issue getting in the park or having to wait in lines. Iguassu Falls is a fantastic place to be right now. Low crowds, beautiful waterfalls, tons of animals. One thing about Belmond is that, although they carefully mark menus and buffet with allergy warnings, they often made mistakes or had misleading labels (bacon labeled gluten free sitting on a pile of wheat bread, as an example). I had to skip the buffet after a couple stomach aches. If you have allergies, just order room service or a la carte from the restaurant. And bring and snacks and toiletries you need, since there is no store at the hotel. We would love to return again. Belmond and the Park itself were the highlight of our trip to Brazil.

    Exceptional service. When thing’s didn’t go just right, they always fixed it and then some. More menu items would be appreciated by people with longer stays.

    First Class Accommodations and Service

    This beautiful hotel at the edge of the Iguazu Falls provides top notch service from check in through check out. Thank you to Edso,concierge, who made booking our tours so easy and to Nad'i, our driver, who made our transfers so effortless. It was a bonus to be located so close the the Falls that we were able to visit, view and take photos before the Park opened.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Okay, it's a nice hotel, but it's all about the location right in front of the falls, and hence avoid all the tour bus hassles. You have to park your car outside the park and get a shuttle into to hotel, but very easy to do, but can mean a half hour wait for the shuttle for pick up drop off. Also since you're in the park pretty much all you'll see is the fall and use of hotel facilities , versus if you stay at a hotel outside the park you'd explore the city more easily. Restaurante at hotel was amazing on its barbecue night.

    The property was beautiful. Top drawer in every way. Room was great. Location to the falls was perfect. Food in the bar and in the buffet was wonderful. The only thing I didn’t like was that they sprayed something in our room with turn down service that I had a hard time with. If you have any allergies make sure you ask them to make sure not to spray.
