Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have you ever visited a hotel and immediately thought 'this place is just after our money'? Well, this is one of those places. No welcoming drink after a long journey, no bottle of complimentary water, no tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms are OK and the air conditioning works well. The bungalows are adjoining though, and one was able to hear any shinanigans next door. The site is in a superb location in the forest, and wildlife is all around. The breakfast is OK but do avoid the restaurant for an evening meal. You will get much better value and quality by catching a taxi to the nearby town. We had a meal at the hotel (pasta) and it was pricey and tasted processed, as if it came straight out of a tin.

We felt completely like home the whole time. The hotel members were all very kind and the place was tidy and comfortable. Gastronomy was very complete and tasty. It's location, as well, was very convenient, since it was found 15/20 minutes from the falls and 30/35 minutes from the airport. We definitely would come back.

Sat on low level balcony attached to room writing this review.
We are happy with everything this jungle lodge hotel has to offer.
The room is clean , modern with an incredibly comfortable bed.
Good air con in room, which is needed as its hot and humid here.
Breakfast has a good choice including fruit, cereals, toast, coffee, tea, cheese, ham, pastries etc etc.
Fantastic free and powerful wifi that works anywhere on site
The resturant where we had our evening meals is of a high quality.
They must have a professional chef on site.
So well presented when bought to your table.
All staff are very friendly and helpful.
The reception staff especially good.
Gaston and Christian most friendly and helpful.
Amazing fauna and trees all around.
Swimming pool area very good with pleasant atmosphere.
Very happy to be a guest at this jungle lodge hotel.

Do not book a Forest Room unless you pay less than USD 10, they are very basic, poor furnishing, poor bedding, old, dirty. Stayed 2 nights and only remained after check in when were promised upgrade for 2nd night. This offer then cancelled next morning and only got upgrade after travel agent intervened. 2nd room was adequate. Restaurant like poor works canteen, Very little furniture around pool and half was broken. Couldnt wait to leave

I'll start with the BAD

Families, avoid this place unless you book a villa room. The quadruple room is basically a king size bed with two beds ON THE FLOOR. (See picture)
They will argue saying those are retractable bed because they just place them over a pieces of wood 1 inch from the floor.
If you like your kids bed sheets and lining all over the floor in the middle of a jungle scenario... this is your place!

We argued and argued when seeing the rooms but their response was basically "This is our quadruple room"

It was raining during our stay so we had to be super careful of leaving our shoes outside to keep the floor clean due to the kids basically sleeping there... AWFUL

THE GOOD

The restaurant is pretty good but after 4 days, you run out of options
The breakfast was great, full of options
The hotel has a taxi agency service that is cheap and decent considering the context
The cleaning crew was awesome, they understood our discomfort with the situation and were cleaning our room floor really really to the detail

We stayed 2 nights while exploring the iguazu falls. A lovely location in the jungle with individual lodges which are spacious. Staff are friendly and helpful and make contact via whats app for pool towels etc.
Pool area lovely with great bird watching as they dip down for the insects over the pool.
The lodges are a bit tired looking and there seemed to be some renovation by external painting. The onsite restaurant for dinner is Ok but recommend taxiing into town where there are many good restaurants whihc are recommended by the hotel staff.

I spent two nights at La Cantera and had a great time. The hotel staff is very friendly, the pool/patio/outdoor lounge areas are great, and being in the jungle is just plain cool. What really stands out at the Lodge, though, is the restaurant. We were shocked by how delicious and presentable *everything* we ordered was. I'm talking 10/10 dishes and Top Chef-level plating. The complimentary buffet breakfast was certainly something worth waking up for. The only thing that was less than spectacular, in my opinion, were the standard-level rooms we got. Some spectacular photography likely oversold the rooms a bit. To be fair, I'll say it again: We didn't get the most expensive ones (the cool, modern ones that pop up when you Google the Lodge). All in all, we had a great time. Would recommend!

The hotel was fine but you are in the middle of the jungle and it is a taxi ride into town for meals unless you want to pay for the relatively average food at the hotel. We had 4 rooms between 9 of us and in 3 of the rooms the water just trickled out of the shower after about a minute. I had to rinse under the bath tap.

It is about 20 minutes from the airport, taxis are easily available.
Staff is very courteous and helpful.

They can order things from the pharmacy like sunscreen and insect repellent if you forget to bring.

Victor Hugo served us excellent Dinner.
Rooms are comfortable, has air conditioning and hot tub in your room.
Breakfast is average..
Liked the authentic setting!

Would definitely not recommend.
Very impersonal and the only hotel that was not helpful in three weeks.

Wait in line for checkin. Then no help with bags (we are doing seven week trip) and there were long walkways and a flight of stairs. $7 fee per person for towel pools not stated. Breakfast buffet was very cheap and what would be expected for a hotel at half the price.

Seemed to mainly cater to British package tours. Poor value.

Unfortunately, they don’t provide electric kettle in rooms. But they can serve tea once we ask for it. And it takes 30 mins maxm to Airport. Unless we are fussy about Jungle theme, a good rated downtown hotel can be tried.

Answer from Andrés L

En Septiembre fui a la cantera lodge y tenían desayuno para celíacos! El desayuno era super completo y muy rico! La verdad que habia de todo. En el restaurante no habia platos que tuviesen el simbolo sin tacc (Es decir, podes comer algun plato sin tacc per se pero puede existir la contaminación cruzada). El desayuno era comprado por el hotel a un negocio que hacía comida sin tacc únicamente.
