Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staying at the Belmond was an excellent decision. The property is beautiful, the service is top quality, the hotel facilities are clean and comfortable, and the location was unbeatable. The Belmond is the only hotel located right in the park. As a result, you are able to get up early and walk the trails before the park opens for the daily crowds of visitors. The food was excellent, and the pool wonderful!

I have visited Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls and now Iguazu. This was the first time I had stayed inside of the National Park and I couldn't have made a better choice! The Belmond is a lovely hotel with excellent service and all of the employees spoke great English! Some of the best I experienced in Brazil! If you have an opportunity to do a night walk to the Falls I highly recommend it. Can't wait to return some day!

We stayed connected room, it was very nice, and also amenity for small children was very nice.

A classy hotel, with an excellent staff, great service and restaurants with delicious food.

The hotel was a bit pricey but was wonderful. It makes Iguassu Falls even better by just walking out the front door of the hotel to see the Falls. The staff was excellent. The rooms were a little old and could be updated but nonetheless it was a wonderful experience.

Staying at this hotel was an amazing experience. It has history, ambience, great customer service, and above all one heck of a location ! It is situated inside the Iguazu falls National Park on the Brazil side. The park entrance is 5-10 min drive from the airport and then another 15 min from the park entrance to the hotel. It would be nice though if the hotel can provide shuttle service from the airport - it becomes kind of annoying to get a cab for 5-10 min ride from airport to park entrance! Over all though a truly 5 star experience.

This hotel was great! We loved being able to stay in the park and have access to the falls whenever we wanted. The staff was kind and met every need. Would stay here again.

We had a great time at this hotel. The staff was very attentive, the pool is beautiful and the view of the waterfalls is fabulous. The best thing though is the early access to the falls in the morning so you are not surrounded by a ton of people.

It was worth every penny. Perfect location to relax and enjoy the comforts and hospitality the hotel offers with amazing food. I highly recommend it!

The room was really clean and comfortable. Most of staffs are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also really good. It was a little expensive, but worth to stay.

Stayed here with my fiancé. Seasoned travelers and this is one of the nicest, most luxurious hotels we have ever stayed in. Staff, food, location, comfort were all top notch. Unbeatable. Well worth the money spent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay at this wonderful hotel. All, including very courteous staff, was perfect. It cost us more than we had planned, but it was totally worth the money.

Good location to falls, high quality service staff, easy to apply many activities.

The staff are amazing and very accommodating. The place feels like the old hotel experience from the 20's. The breakfast buffet in the morning is incredible and includes a table of fresh fruit, a variety of cereals, a number of hot dishes, several juices and mimosas, plus an omelet bar. You can also special request eggs any way you would like them to make. There is a lot to do: Pool, tennis, spa, hiking, bird sanctuary, boating up the falls, and a lot of other options. It is a very relaxing pampered setting. It is in the middle of a park so there is not a lot around that does not deal with park activity.

We had a good time by excellent service from hotel staff and easy to go to Iguazu falls by ourselves.

What a wonderful hotel! I had an overnight call on a cruise ship and chose to fly independently to Iguacu Falls and spend the night at the das Cataras. This is the only hotel within the national park and steps from the falls. The rooms are very comfortable. Toiletries are locally sourced and generously sized. Basic wi-fi is free, but guests can upgrade for a faster service. (I found the basic service fine.)The multi-lingual staff is amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. An on-site travel agent can arrange car transfers to the hotel, tours to the Argenine and Paraguayan sites, and guided trips by helicopter, boat and trail. A one-way transfer to/from the airport costs R$90. There are two restaurants, a prix fixe where breakfast and lunch are also served, and a table d'hote where only dinner is served. There are indoor and outdoor bars that serve food, as well.The hotel provides a free clothes drying service for visitors to the falls and provides flip-flops for guests.

Superb hotel right next to iguacu fall... Nothing is better than this !!

From the moment you get to the park gate, the experience begins. The rooms are beautiful. The buffet breakfast is fantastic. The pool is gorgeous. The view from the front of the hotel to the falls is unreal. We only spent one night, but two would be worth the cost!

Simply perfect. Worth every penny from the hefty bill. Important to know is that as the Hotel is inside the park, you stay at the Cataracts after evreybody left. I walked the trails by myself early in the morning and late in the afternoon when there were no other tourists, except for Hotel guests, in the park. Amazing experience to have this magnificent scenery exclusively for yourself. No need to elbow other tourists to get a nice picture.

Loved the hotel, 5 star service, great food, but pricey. Spanish villa style, very classy very beautiful. It was great to have access to the falls after all the other tourists left. Well worth the money. There was an amazing guitar player during dinner at the pool.... Totally made our night.
