TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Papillon Bella Vista
No English spoken at all, but the staff and reception very friendly,nice comfortable rooms,just the one night here but there is a lovely pool and the grounds are very natural.Situated on the main highway to Encarnacion,gives it a motel feel,all the same very good.Good restaurant.
