"Welcome respite from the heat, with cordial, helpful staff"
Very much as advertised; a nicely designed, clean and comfortable place to stay, with good access to the falls. Perfectly adequate - and the restaurant better than just adequate. Also, the best breakfast we've seen in Argentina.
"A jungle experience"
We stayed 3 nights in January 2017 and had a very enjoyable stay. The lodge is in the middle of the jungle and it was great to hear all the jungle sounds. We chose a jungle room which had an enclosed balcony with a hammock and table and chairs - this was a great place to relax. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed, mini bar, flat screen tv and telephone. The bathroom was adequate, but could do with updating as there were missing tiles and marks on the mirror and door. Breakfast offered a good selection of fruit, pastries, eggs and toast. We ate dinner twice in the restaurant and really enjoyed the food. There is an inviting swimming pool, but we didn't have time to enjoy it. The staff at the lodge were exceptional and really made our stay. On check in, they worked out that it was my 40th birthday the next day. On my birthday, we came back to our room in the evening to find a bottle of sparkling wine - i really appreciated this kind gesture!
"Cabins in the Woods"
This hotel is okay, in my opinion, but not more than that. On the good side my room was comfortable though I didn't like the pillows. It has a nice pool. The rooms are detached cabin-like structures accessed by wooden walkways. Be aware that if someone is in the canin next door, they can hear everything you say above a whisper. The restaurant had limited vegetarian choices and I found the atmosphere cool and uninviting. The logistics of the hotel doesn't easily lead to engagement with the staff, it has to be sought out.
"Terrible and not as advertised"
I should have known when I attempted to check in and our reservation could not be found while we looked on as other patrons experienced issues. The restaurant was not any better and we kept it safe with pasta. Don't order any of the meat. Luckily, we spent only one night. The real draw is the falls. Stay at the Sheraton in the park!
We selected this hotel as a base for visiting the Iguazu falls. It has a pool and restaurant. The room was a good size but it had a mildew odour. It must be very hard with the high humidity. The restaurant gets very busy so make sure to book ahead. There is an extensive menu and the food is above average. After a long day sight seeing you might not want to make a trip into town.
