“Expensive, good service, great pool”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

The rooms are large and full kitchens. Nice patio overlooking the jungle and stream. The pool is great and reception is very helpful in setting up tours/dinner reservations.

This was an expensive place to stay (ours was about $350 a night) so I expected better beds (they were comfortable enough) and no restaurant pool service (to order drinks/food) - you had to go into the restaurant and order.

Room Tip: Try for an upstairs room.

This is a perfect place to stay if you are a family, lots of space in the lodge and clean. Close to Iguazu falls, and helpful staff. Right by the Brazilian border, really a beautiful location. The restaurant and the poolarea was nice.

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed it.
The room was enormous, with a kitchen, a living-room, a giant bed, two balconies and a view into the jungle. One of the balconies even had a BBQ set...
The hotel is very clean, the personnel is nice and courteous.
Restaurant is very good, both to have dinner and for the breakfast.
To say the truth, I don't think I have anything negative to say about this hotel (I should say "lodge" I know)... One of the best places we stayed in during our trip in Argentina.

Room Tip: You could ask to get a room nearest to the reception. The further you are, the more you will have to...

Stayed as a family in one lodge and we were quite happy with the place. The rooms are a bit outdated and bathroom in need of renovations but they offer good space. Pool and restaurant are quite nice and the lodge is close to the jungle. There is kids place with pool, gym etc which was nice as well. Not too far from Iguazu waterfalls, most taxis at the airport will offer good transportation services, people in this part of Argentina are really friendly and serviceminded.

Iguazu Jungle Lodge is a four star lodge 18 km away from the Iguazu National Park and water falls. It is 15 min walk (slow tempo) away from the city center and 10 min walking away from the main bus station. It has really beautiful location, it seems you are really in jungle, and in the night you can hear the sounds of nature, such as birds and river. I had really great sleep over there. We stayed in a huge lodge, with a kitchen, living room and a bedroom. We had two balconies, smaller one was connected to the kitchen and it had a barbeque (parilla) place. One could use all of those facilities free of charge, even kitchen dishes which were very clean, and even though I have cleaned them after every use, cleaning lady was re-washing them. Breakfast was OK, nothing amazing, but there was always fresh fruits and fresh orange juice. In general, I travelled in Argentina for one month, staid in many hotels, and breakfast in this place compares to one in Sheraton, Cordoba. I have not tried the food in the restaurant, only food that they serve at the swimming pool. They have a delicious cocktails (my favorite was caipirinha) and good sandwiches.
Transfers organized by the hotel are too expensive, you can just walk to the main bus station and take care about it yourself, with decent prices. I would not bother going to the city center and tourist information there, because they do not really speak english, and they were not very helpful. I found much better information at the bus station. Staff is really nice and hospitable, and they are ready to answer all the questions. Of course, they will try to sell you their own tours. Those were for 10-15 % more expensive than the ones you find directly in the National Park, and it was mostly due to charge for transfer.
I felt very comfortable during my stay there. The only negative thing for me was the distance to the National Park. When I booked the hotel I wanted to stay near the city, but when I found out that the city is not interesting at all, not really worth of a visit, I thought it might have been better to stay at some of the hotels in the National Park. In general, Iguazu Jungle Lodge is a really great place to stay, especially if you do not like conventional hotels and you do not mind to travel 18 km to the National Park.

Room Tip: Room number 3 is literally in the forest and it is huge!

Is this a luxury hotel or not? Is the restaurant any good? Can I really walk to the city center? If you read all the reviews below, it's really hard to tell!

- This is NOT a luxury accommodation as a few people have said - it has all you need, but it isn't the Ritz. Everything, including the style of decoration, is old but functional. For people visiting from the US, this is a cabin-style accommodation in a remote area or nature-oriented tourist attraction, maybe a mid-range airbnb rental. Level of poshness is probably just below a suburban Holiday Inn. Do not stay here if squeamish about little critters sharing your room.

- what the room has: Kitchen with appliances, dinnerware, knives, pots and pans; bar table and stools, dining table and chairs, lounge area with armchairs or sofa, sleeping area which may or may not be closed off. Typical minibar stocks. Bathroom is basic, with Unilever toiletries. In one of our rooms the shower was fine, in the other room it was not but was fixed by turning some randomly placed lever at the bottom. Each room (from what we saw) has its own wi-fi router, which means excellent wi-fi signal and a much, much faster connection than you would expect out in the jungle. TV with CNN. Bedding is very basic - not the most comfy and it's old and stained, but it is good enough to sleep through the night if you're not overly fussy. Balcony with furniture. A/C (what I mean by old but functioning: it wouldn't turn on at first, but by the advice of the front desk, I climbed on some furniture to point the remote control closer to the A/C, and it worked!). Automatic insect repellent spraying device (at least that's what I'm assuming it is).

- what the room does not have: instant coffee/tea, though coffee is available at the front desk around the clock. Counter space around the sink to put your stuff. Mosquito net for the bed.

- Restaurant: staff at the restaurant speak very limited English. The food is average Argentinean fare, meaning, it's good if you like Argentinean-style steak (ridiculously huge and no sauce), and not good otherwise. If your expectations aren't too high, and taking into context the general quality of food in Argentina, the restaurant is fine, but the reality is that you're only eating there because it's too much trouble to go downtown...

- Location: The reviews are all over the place regarding the walk to the city center. At average speed, it is a 15-20 minute walk including 5 minutes of moderately steep climbing. I believe it is not so much the physical demands of the walk, but the unpleasantness of it that makes it unwalkable. The terrain is cobbly, surroundings are boring and ugly (it's a residential area with many abandoned buildings and construction sites) and feels like a zombie movie (only sign of life: stray dogs and pet dogs). If you're fit enough, used to commuting on foot on a regular basis, and don't need the sights to mitigate the mundaneness, you'll have no issues making the trek. If you are a person who would ever avoid walking for whatever reason, then budget for taxis. I never traveled the streets after sunset - I did see that there are street lamps, but since the area is so remote, safety may also be a concern, and another reason you would probably not want to walk out to dinner in the evenings.

Other than that, like what everyone else said, it's a nice place for a peaceful getaway, close to nature and with resort facilities. I wouldn't recommend staying any longer than needed to see the falls (one day for Argentinian side and one day for Brazilian side is sufficient) but if you wanted to buffer in a couple of days to insure against wet weather (which would really ruin your experience of the falls), there are definitely opportunities here to just relax and take in the fresh air. I can't comment on getting the hotel to organize the excursions for you as I had made those arrangements with a third-party prior to getting there, but it is a quick 15-20 minute drive to the Argentinian side and about 30 minutes to the Brazilian side not counting immigration).

Staff are very warm and hospitable. Don't bother with airport transfers, these are overpriced. Breakfast was ok, evening meals in the restaurant weren't so good. Nice games room for the kids and the swimming pool is large and inviting. Some building works nearby were quite noisy. Generally a good experience, but felt slightly overpriced.
