Eighteen Reasons to stay at Belmond – Hotel das Cataratas – Iguassu Falls

This hotel was number one on trip advisor when I researched my South American trip and I can see why. There is nothing that I can write that hasn’t been said before but if you need a reason to choose this first class hotel choose from one of these…….

  1. Only hotel in the National Park on the Brazilian side.
  2. You have the park to yourself early morning and from late afternoon. Trails start just outside the hotel grounds. There is nothing better than seeing the sunset without the crowds.
  3. Twenty minutes from nearest airport.
  4. On the drive through the park to the hotel you will see anteaters, toucans and coatis.
  5. Beautiful, large quiet pool with attentive but not intrusive staff. Comfortable sunbeds and crisp white fluffy towels. You will be served complimentary fruit and fruit juices. I enjoyed a lime and passion fruit refresher.
  6. Plenty of areas to sit and chill, I especially enjoyed a cocktail on the front verandah.
  7. Chocolates at turn down.
  8. Havianas provided in the room.
  9. Friendly staff and a shout out to Gessica and Rodrigo, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff which we encountered.
  10. Concierge will organise airport collection, private drivers and tours.
  11. Buffet breakfast including a range of local foods, eggs, bacon, pastries, bread, yogurt, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. First class quality.
  12. Fat Argentine olives and nuts served with drinks in the bar.
  13. We ate in the bar and enjoyed upscale bar food including beef sliders, tacos and salad.
  14. Full range of Caipirinhas to try!
  15. Complimentary soft drinks in the room.
  16. Comfortables beds.
  17. Access to the tower which allows for some great photos of the falls.
  18. Upscale Granado toiletries supplied in the bathrooms.
