"Good and Bad"
Beautiful location, in the middle of nature. Too bad the rooms (outside) look like containers and are all in a row; this feels like you live in a refugee camp. Service at reception is really friendly (there was even a guy speaking Dutch; very funny); service in the restaurant is not good. We had to struggle to get attention and the bill was a mess. We tried to correct, but the second attempt was even worse. We just paid.
"Great hotel in the middle of the forest"
We really enjoyed our stay at La Cantera Jungle Lodge. We enjoyed walking the walkways through the trees to get to our secluded forest room. The room itself was great and had a balcony looking out to the forest. The reception staff were great, and had some excellent recommendations on how we could get the best out of our trip to the falls. The restaurant was good - although you had to reserve each night - and very handy. The lodge was a great way to feel like you were amongst the nature of the falls! Definitely recommend.
"Excellent experience in the middle of the rainforest"
We've been in november with 2 kids (6 and9). Great location, in the middle of the rainforest, but not too far from everything you can do in Iguazu, spacious and clean rooms, very helpful staff. We have enjoyed a lot and we will go again.
The hotel is located in the middle of the jungle, if you arrived without car you are depending of the taxi service is not cheap service. The hotel has a restaurant at night that is expense, the fast food is only available until 7 PM after that the restaurant is open until 10 PM. We staid in the jungle room is very comfortable has a private desk and room is very big, also is located in a quite area. All the areas in the hotel looks clean, services in the room are very good. Swimming pool is nice and small. Recommendation take a tour into the jungle with the guarani guide.
"Water not potable - required to buy bottled water from the hotel at $1.50 (US)/cup."
1. Hotel instructions regarding water: a. Do not drink the tap water. b. It is forbidden to bring water onto the property c. If you want to drink water, you must buy water from hotel at $1.50 (US) per CUP. *Note: this hotel is in the jungle, where temps are above 90 degrees. 2. Too small flat sheets on bottom = wrinkles, uncomfortable 3. Breakfast - when the food and/or plates/cutlery has not run out - consists of stale pastries, runny eggs, fruit and cereal. All served with a side of a random child's snot sneezed/coughed onto the food. 4. There is another "Jungle Lodge" not related to this one. Make sure you tell the cabbie to take you to "La Cantera" if you've booked this place. 5. Every person we saw checking out had a problem or complaint about their bill. 6. We used the (unheated) pool once. The one other time we wanted to use the pool it was jammed with children and no chairs were available (they have about 30 chairs, which seems like it would be enough, so you get the idea as to the number of kids)
