Located in Iguazu, La Cantera Jungle Lodge is near the airport and close to Aripuca and Guira Oga. Regional points of interest also include Iguazu National Park and Iguazu Falls.
All persons working there were extremely nice and attentive. They recieve you with a big smile and make you feel home. They try to help you with what ever it is you need, we felt very much welcome and almost "at home" there. The location is great with a well kept community swimming pool, spacious villas with their own terrace and whirlpool.
"Great rainforest experience"
Location great - unless you are able to afford to stay in the national park you will stay in or around Puerto Iguazu so why not stay in the rain forest' Lodge like accommodation scattered and on raised wooden walkways. Lovely room, well mosquito proofed and free repellent ! . All staff very helpful and I was impressed that although we booked non refundable rooms for 3 nights due to a national strike in Argentina our flights were cancelled and we got there a day late - no quibble whatsoever. Very impressed.
"Should be rated 2.5 -3 stars"
This is a unique hotel located in the jungle area near Iguazu Falls. While it was considered a 4 star hotel in many reviews it lacked many amenities that would be tipically offered in better hotels. For example: - no bell hop assistance with rooms far from check in - room was musty smelling - included breakfast was not good - rooms are a bit tired - driveway up to hotel is in terrible shape and causes a very bumpy ride each time you arrive. It is an ok hotel And the staff was friendly but it is better rated as 2.5-3 Stars.
Was just a bit disappointed, as the rooms and pool area did not match the photos advertised, and were decidedly a few pegs further down the rung and more tired and worse for wear than the photos on-line. Having said that, its still a beautiful, tranquil setting.This place is a bit hard to find, and quite a ways out of the main town area, so you have to taxi back and forth a lot if you want to pop into town for dinner, which you probably will at some point, unless you want to restrict yourself to the onsite restaurant, where I found the food was reasonable, but not spectacular. One female receptionist was less than helpful, to the extent it seemed like an imposition to ask a question, however there was a male receptionist that followed who was just delightful and went above and beyond and made up for it.
"Nice but needs updating; quiet and green but not a jungle lodge"
Mixed feelings about this hotel. We had a good stay, and the staff were polite and helpful. The hotel is close to a 3.5 star with a good sized pool and good sized rooms. Glad also not to be in a chain hotel. I only rate the hotel a 3 out of 5 because it feels a bit run down, and (as others have noted) there is less nature to be seen in the area than the name implies (more on this below.) The rooms were a bit dated in style and tired; lighting was somewhat dim. Our patio was quite shallow and ran up to a wall of plants/trees at most 5 feet from our back door. The pool was nice, but needed to be painted. The chaises also needed to be repainted and were visually great but not comfortable for the back. As for the disappointing jungle experience , the issue is not specific to this hotel. We took a hotel-provided guided "jungle walk" and actually saw less of interest than we would have back home in the US in a city park. The problem is that, in my head, I compared this to the "jungle" we had experienced in Peru or in Costa Rica. This area and Iguazu are very different and are not the place to visit for that experience, or for a place surrounded by colorful landscaping. Context is important, and if you manage your expectations, you may be pleased to find yourself in a quiet, green setting. As a final note, the location is a bit remote. You can hire a taxi, but it also may be worth staying closer to town.
