“Absolutely lovely experience!”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

At first we were reluctant to move to The Jungle Lodge after having stayed in the national park at The Sheraton. Aside from not being located in the park and not having a true fitness center, The Jungle Lodge surpassed The Sheraton in almost every way:

1)service - personal and professional; requests taken care of immediately
2)"room" - floor to ceiling wall to wall windows opening up to the jungle; very spacious; nicely laid out studio apartment style with full kitchen and dining area - condo hotel feel. More than twice the size of a Sheraton room; large terrace naturally screened by the jungle for a sense of privacy; quiet (other than the sounds of the stream below); decor was not my personal taste (a little too homey for me as I prefer a hotel "look" in terms of decor), but fine; excellent water pressure and temperature control in shower; excellent wifi reception (free); CNN news
3)food & beverage - lovely restaurant with romantic rustic ambiance; use ingredients from their own ranch; loved the sirloin, but was enough for two people; did not care for the "regional tastes" appetizer; included breakfast was fine; overall very good value; snacks and beverages in room reasonably priced; overall much better than The Sheraton aside from The Sheraton's breakfast being much more abundant and varied
4) location - preferred The Sheraton only for access to park; Jungle Lodge much better for a getaway experience; taxi from airport to Sheraton is 110 pesos, versus 120 pesos airport to Jungle Lodge
5)amenities - very nice pool and hot tub; no gym (I believe they had a treadmill. It did not matter as other things took priority at Iguazu. I didn't workout at The Sheraton either despite it having a true fitness center); indoor recreation room with ping pong and children's play area.
6) value for price paid - I paid approximately $110/night at The Jungle Lodge (plus taxis to/from park) versus $355/night at The Sheraton (Falls view room)

Next time I would stay at The Sheraton for the first night to enjoy the convenience, then move to The Jungle Lodge and chill out for a few days. Also, I would have brought more pesos to have benefited from the Blue Market rate instead of paying with credit card at the official rate - makes a huge difference!

The cabins here (our was technically called a lift, but if was a full apartment) are nice and roomy. Kitchens are big, although not very well stocked. Breakfast was really good. Mattresses were quite comfortable. Our only complaint was that the hot tub wasn't working when we were there.

We stayed at the Iguazu Jungle Lodge for 2 nights (which is enough to see both sides of the falls) and were positively surprised from the moment we arrived. The staff was super friendly, spoke good English (and German) and went out of their ways to assist us. They booked us 2 incredible tours to the falls (take 1 day for Argentine and 1/2 day for Brazil), for very reasonable prices. The restaurant had a great breakfast selection (included) and the dinner menu was good too. They even smoke their own lamb!

Besides the breathtaking falls, our definite highlight of this trip was our guide Andres and receptionist Sebastian. They checked our flights for us, found out our flight was cancelled, got us on a different flight and raced us to the airport in time.

As if the above wasn't enough, the Jungle Lodge is part of the larger 'Iguazu Jungle' company, which means they can book all sorts of tours for you and pick you and drop you off in the middle of the park.

We booked this lodge online and were very pleased with our choice. Ours was a quick 1 night trip to see the falls which make Niagara look like a trickle. We asked to be picked up at the airport and this worked very well. Staff at the lodge were very friendly and helpful. They arranged for us to tour the falls the next day with a few other people. Our guide was spectacular and we had a wonderful day. The national park is extremely well kept and this visit was one of the highlights of our 7 week tour of South America. Even though we had checked out eartlier, when we returned from our tour of the falls we were wet from our boat excursion under the falls and the Lodge allowed us to use the showers at their pool to clean up prior to going to the airport. The Lodge itself is beautiful and the room we had was large and clean with a very nice balcony/patio overlooking the rain forest. We ate all our meals in the on site restaurant and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Our only regret was not having more time to spend at the Jungle Lodge.

An excellent lodge type residence .... a series of 'lodges', each one comprising three floors ... each floor having a separate 'front door'. The one we stayed in was the bottom floor ... made up of a very large room with a kitchen and dining room at one end; a sitting room area in the centre; and a bedroom at the other end ... in a U shaped configuration. The bathroom filled the centre of the U ... The whole of long side of the room was glass, with views into dense 'jungle' ... one section of the glass was sliding doors which led onto a very large, covered, veranda, firnished with table and chairs. All fixtures and fittings were of good quality.
Upon running the bath, shorlty after our arrival, the water boiler sprung a leak ... we phoned reception, and within three mintes a mechanic arrived and fixed the problem ... fast service!

Another building contained a reasonably equipped games room (table tennis, pool etc) and some excercise machinery.

A good sized pool for an end of the day dip ... and a pleasnt restaurant ... good breakfast selection and excellent evening meal menu with very good standard of cooking.

The recption staff were forst class arranging any trips, taxis etc ... and very helpful in suggesting itineraries.

We stayed two nights .... a full day to 'do' the Argentine side ... a taxi from the Lodge (it's about 15 kms away) ... and back at the ned of the day. Then a half day to 'do' the Brazilian side ... another taxi ride (longer).

You should be aware that entering the Argentine 'park' is a fairly straightforward affair ... the Brazilian side, however, meant long queues, (this may improve with rebuilding that's going on).

A US couple who stayed for three/four nights were struggling to find enough to do aftre the two main visits. So, don't pay the extra nights ... all the hotels are quite pricey!

I have to say that the falls themselves are so utterly fantatsic that anything else pales in comparison. On the Argentine side, I'd really recommend the boat ride that takes you under/very near some of the falls ... it's very exciting (and safe!) ... but you will get drenched! If you want to film it, take some cling film to cover your camera with ... a lot cheaper than buying the dvd of your trip taken on board by staff with a waterproofed camcorder!

It was a visit we shall not forget in a hurry ... rates as one of the top ten I've ever done ... and I've travelled quite a lot.

I stayed here with my parents and boyfriend and we all shared a room- it was a two bed apartment with a lounge and balcony. the room was fantastic. wifi worked a treat- each apartment has its own.
the staff were super helpful. we booked all our tours through them. I would recommend getting a tour for the Argentina side of iguazu then just transport for the Brazil side. they even arranged for the transport to leave us in Foz, Brazil so we could continue our travels.
Breakfast was very good for Argentina standards. we ate both nights in the restaurant. We were a bit disappointed with the lamb in the first night- completely over cooked. However the steak on the second night was excellent. The restaurant staff were truly excellent.....they even made a special huge desert with a massive sparkler for my mums bday, free of charge. A really nice gesture that absolutely made our stay!

This hotel was in a good position of edge of Iguazu (though not much in the town itself).
It was comfy, clean, pleasant, with very nice staff. The restaurant was good enough to eat at every night, and they organised excellent trips to visit the Falls and other sites during the day.
I would recommend it to anyone for a short visit, self catering or otherwise.
