Pousada El Refugio
Ranked #11 of 93 Foz do Iguacu B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 March 2014

The owners were very friendly and consistently went out of their way to help us find vegetarian restaurants. The room was very clean and well styled. After the crazy cab and bus rides in Rio and the rest of Brazil, it was a pleasure to use the nice, professional, tri-lingual driver associated with the pousada (Roberto). We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed two nights at Posada El Refugio during our 5 weeks long trip around South America, and it was definitely the best place, we stayed during our trip. The family who owns the place are really friendly, helpful and hospitable and are very aware of their guests wellbeing. Beside the fact that the family speaks five languages (spanish, portuguese, english, swedish and danish), they also know all about the local region and how to get around, and are ready to help you arrange your visits. The calm and peaceful atmosphere and beautiful surroundings, makes you feel like home. The posada is perfectly placed in the center of the city in a safe and quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay there again at our next trip to Foz do Iguazu.

This pousada exceeded all our expectations.The rooms were well decorated,spacious and very comfortable.The breakfast was always delicious with fresh fruit,meat,cheese and fresh cake daily. The breakfast table was outside in a lovely garden with a full size pool.The owners went well beyond the usual and in fact were willing to transport us to the falls and Iatapu power plant tour. Our stay was exceptional and we enjoyed learning all about Brazil.

Room Tip: Both are well appointed

It was really great, we felt like at home!!!! It is a small place, the owners (a very nice couple) live in the same building and rent out two rooms on the first floor of the building. The house is located about 0,5-1 km from the centre. The house in general was very nicely decorated; the room was spacious and clean. There was a fridge in the room with cold drinks (bottled water was free of charge!!)... There was a garden with a small pool; you could sit in the shadow, listen to the birds singing on the trees and enjoy the beauty of the trees and flowers:-)) The breakfast was excellent - coffee and fresh juice (both made 5 minutes ago:-)), fruits, yogurt, cheese and ham, fresh bread + a piece of cake (home-made!!). The owners were very nice and fluent in English!!! It`s possible to order the tours to the falls (both Brazilian and Argentinian side, a trip by car to the gate of the national park and pick-up on agreed time) as well as airport pick-ip beforehand and you can get always a lot of useful information from the owners about the town, falls etc.
It was the best place during our trip to Brazil:-)))

Room Tip: São apenas dois quartos, o que faz com que o El Refugio seja ainda mais charmoso.
