We stayed at La Cantera for two nights with our 3 young children and had an excellent time. A genuine oasis retreat welcome after the hectic bustle of BA and the better option compared to highway or locations within what seemed a very uninspiring town. We shared a room with adequate space for the kids and a cot. The 5 series of rooms are all single level (no noise issues like previous reviews of the double storey blocks) and very clean and new. The swimming pool area was loved by the kids and the jungle setting was serene. The staff were very accommodating and spoke English, arrange various things for us such as transport and money exchange.
Food was basic, consistent with other Argentinean experiences, breakfast was fine with fresh juice, passable coffee and reasonable Media lunas and a ridiculous range of sweet treats which were fortunately too high to be seen by our children!
Transport was easily arranged from the hotel although we mixed up using local options; taxis and buses to reduce the cost. There are free shuttles to town although our experience was mildly hair raising and did see the premature death of a local dog without the bat of an eyelid from our driver.
All in all worth seeking out a great option for Iguazu especially as the rates are reasonable and the location complimentary to the natural environment for which most of us are there.
