“Excellent Stay in Iguazu Falls”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel in March 2014. At first, I was not sure of staying in a lodge near a subtropical jungle but it turned out to be a really nice hotel. The hotel has an interesting look, with log type construction. The hotel reception staff were very nice and they even gave me directions to take the local bus to downtown Iguazu and return back. The restaurant was nice too.

A couple of things to note but these are not necessarily the hotel's fault:
(1) The hot water took a long time in the early morning to come through the faucets. The reception staff explained to me that I had to run the water for 10 minutes for the hot water to reach the cabins from the heater in the main area. So, be aware of this if you are an early morning riser and want to take a shower early.

(2) When I was trying to sleep, I heard like fire crackers or explosions near the room. I thought someone was lighting fire crackers, but then I thought it could not be possible as it would be dangerous to do it. It turned out that the animals or birds were chewing on the small fruits on the trees near the roof of the cabin and when those fruits or twigs fell from the tree onto the metal roof, it sounded like an explosion. Once I figured that out, it was okay, and the hotel reception staff confirmed that too.

The hotel had free wifi and it was better than the wifi I had in a hotel in Buenos Aires. The restaurant had good breakfast too. You can also walk to one side of the hotel to see some natives and a horse stall on the other side. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again, if I visit Iguazu Falls.

Room Tip: If you would like a good night's sleep, choose rooms that are not too close to trees. Otherwise...

Super helpful staff, that helped us arrange a driver for a whole day, after Hertz fumbled our car rental and left us without car. Having our own driver allowed us to explore both sides of the falls, he also handled paperwork each time we had to cross the boarder - It was actually cheaper to hire a driver that to rent a car. The lodge is very nice, the restaurant is good, breakfast is OK by south american standards.
Good pool for relaxing, not suitable for doing laps.
The jungle setting was perfect and the rooms was big and has a jacuzzi bath top, hammock and free WiFi. The wood decor is a bit dated and could do with a refresh.

We stayed one night but wish we could have spent more time here. Our son, age 7, enjoyed the property day and night. He swam like a fish during the day and in the evening enjoyed looking for wildlife (including the bugs) with his flashlight. It was fun to see our son enjoy himself so much here that we wished we had one more night. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff did our laundry in just a few hours! It was so nice to come back after dinner to clean clothes. The front desk was extremely helpful and some staff are bilingual (Spanish/English) which is always helpful. Breakfast was ample. We would return here.

We were here for 4 days. This is a nice quiet location which is walking distance and cab distance to the city center. The setting places each cabin in a jungle/Forrest type setting. The beds are good. There is free wifi in the rooms. The bathroom is okay, but could use some updates. Great pool! Staff is helpful and want to help
Dinner is excellent! Breakfast was included and was okay from a continental buffet. Lunch is just mediocre. Had lunch twice by the pool and sat in the sun.
We would stay here again.

A 'jungle' lodge at the edge of the town. The main building is nicely maintained and houses reception and a bar/restaurant. The villas are set in six pods of four and nicely spaced for privacy. The 'jungle' surroundings are great....a variety of butterflies flying around as you walk to your villa. The pool is well situated. It is small but a quiet getaway from busy life. Pool side food service was efficient. The food left something to be desired....we ate dinner there one night which was enough for us..not much choice but the steak was worth the while.
The villas I saw (two) could use a bit of a fix up...the door handle fell off, the air conditioner leaked all night on my suitcase causing the clothes to be soaked...so watch out for this. The hot water was intermittent but it was a warm few days so lukewarm worked also..however for the price this should not happen. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
This is a good location as a base for the one (or two) day visit to the falls and different from the downtown hotels that were not great from what we saw.

Room Tip: Make sure you have hot water and that the doors/windows close....keep your clothes and suitcase away...

We stayed here for 4 nights while on our 2 week honeymoon, and were hoping to make it the relaxing jungle getaway portion. We spent one day at the falls (one day is seriously all you need and can probably handle -- so much walking!) and spent the rest laying by the pool at the resort. The pool area is DEAD empty during the day because all the other guests are at the falls, so that was nice. You can purchase drinks at the small restaurant/bar by the pool, but the food selection is pretty slim.

We ate dinner in the restaurant 3 nights and I regret that -- there are some pretty good restaurants in town and our meal was really only good one of the nights in the hotel. It's also in the same room as the hotel check-in, so the ambiance is pretty much ruined by people coming through with their luggage. And there was this family with three obnoxious kids running around all the time, and no employee said a word - one of the other patrons finally had to say something to the parents.

If you ever want to go anywhere by taxi, they always ask where you are going which annoys me. It also took forever for the taxi to show up, and I suspect they use certain drivers with pre-agreed charges, because it was always cheaper for us to come back to the hotel from wherever we were. Otherwise, the room was great. Spacious, with a lot of jungle privacy and your own hammock and porch. The bed wasn't super comfortable, and you could hear everything the neighbors said and did, but overall the unique atmosphere was worth it. Also of all the hotels we stayed at on our trip, this is the only one that didn't reply to any of my inquiries beforehand.

We spent 2 nights here while visiting Iguazu falls, what a hidden oasis this turned out to be. Small cabins set in the rainforest, with individual balconies. So peaceful and tranquil. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The beds were some of the most comfortable I have slept in. It felt like you were the only ones there and after a day at the falls a very relaxing way to unwind. The food was great and very reasonably priced, dinner was excellent and breakfast was also enjoyable. The only downside was that you could hear the people in the next room quite clearly.
