Overall fantastic value
Amazing jungle setting - you literally have to walk through the jungle from the lobby/restaurant/pool building to your room. Amazing food in the restaurant (blew away expectations). Convenient (although not the most punctual) shuttle to the national park.
Pillows on bed smelled like mildew. Tough with humidity but would've hoped for a clean smelling bed.
Rooms were truly built into the jungle. Hotel desk and restaraunt staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Meals at the hotel restaraunt were fantastic; beautifully prepared and wonderful flavor. The free breakfast was fine, but not great.
Hotel airconditioner froze up almost every night, spitting out water onto the floor and table. Although the staff worked on it the next day, the same problem reoccurred. It left everything in my room, including clean clothes, damp and musty. While the rooms were well cleaned, they were showing heavy signs of use and needed to be updated. The beds were spring mattresses that were not very comfortable.
Good value for money, off the beaten path
Really cool hotel in the jungle. Off the beaten path from Puerto Iguazu. You are literally in the jungle. There is a great pool. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were clean and basic. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
Because it's off the beaten path, you have to take a remi/cab to town and to anywhere really. So if you are the type that likes to have everything at your doorstep I would opt to stay closer to town.
Nice location, clean rooms, great steaks and good value for money
Restaurant service has room for improvement
I thought that la Cantera is a gem - the rooms were excellent and I loved the wooden walk-ways there. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. Please don't spoil it by adding more accommodation and getting bigger!
It was a beautiful hotel in a wonderful setting. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer!
This was a gorgeous property set in the middle of the jungle. Our room was beautiful, very nicely decorated, lovely tiled bathroom, and a private screened porch. The pool was very relaxing. Breakfast had plenty of choices and our dinner at the restaurant was very good. It's a small property, but all of the staff were very helpful and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We found it interesting that it's near an indigenous community; the people there are very kind and have stands set up near the hotel selling jewelry and other hand-made items. Keep in mind it's more remote than the larger hotels in the area and not as easily accessible, but it's a 10 minute walk to the main road where you can catch a bus or taxi to the city or falls.
The bathroom had some plumbing issues. We were going to take a bath and the jets blew out this black, charcoal-like substance. The bottom of the tub near the drain needed better support as it bent under your weight. The room smelled a little musty - mostly due to being in the humid jungle, things don't dry very easily so that was understanding. It seemed they don't use bleach either because the towels were stained the reddish color of the soil in that area.
in the middle of the jungle, excellent staff, nice pool, jacuzzi in the room,
too far from the main road to take the bus to the falls (so you pay 180$ for a taxi instead of 30$ retour trip to the falls)
The hotel is basically a main lodge with three seprate acommodation lodge blocks linked by wooden walkways off the jungle floor. The staff were great at the front desk helping me make the most of my short stay at the falls. Good breakfast and free internet in the main lodge. Very peaceful and great to be able to hear the wildlife at night.
The room had a damp smell due to the moisture in the air - it's a jungle after all. Onvce I had fund the offending damp smelling cushions and popped them on the balcony I was fine. TYou need you own car or taxis to get everywhere as the hotel is fairly isolated.
There is only sandy road to get to the hotel.they order a taxi (who work with this hotel) and we were wait 1.5 hour at the lobby because no one want to get there while it rain...maybe because of the slippery road! the staff were not helpfull. we were really disappointed of our choise
We enjoy the location that it was literly in the jungle, and the comfort room
Slow service and minimum personel
It was amazing, fantastic hotel, fantastic location. Staff extremely helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome, all spoke English too which was an added bonus. Local knowledge was good and the taxi service they have was brilliant, easy to book and affordable to use (nearest bus route is 1 mile (20 min) walk down away). Surroundings were amazing and the rooms were luxurious, large jacuzzi bath and huge bed! Food was very good and pool was very relaxing. Would highly recommend and would stay again.
Small gap underneath the door to the room (door leads to open outside corridor), we were concerned bugs may come in so we put a towel down each night, did not experience any problems.
