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!
