Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel in the jungle near about 20 min taxi ride from Iguazu Falls. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Large room with comfortable bed and great air conditioning. The food at the hotel restaurant was very good.

The setting of this hotel was absolutely beautiful. The pool area was quite lovely and the staff were fabulous. The only thing that could have been better was the condition of the bathroom. It was a little old and worn. If you are looking for a 4-5 star hotel this is not it. But if you are looking for great setting, staff, pool and good value, this is the place.

Hotel not quite as smart as in the photos but clean and staff very courteous and helpful. Dinner menu excellent. A taxi/car is necessary to go anywhere so good if you want peace and quiet in a rainforest setting. You do get wet and it's difficult to dry clothes.

The setting of this hotel right in the heart of the jungle is truly remarkable and as amazing as the photos on their website. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise with great food and an incredibly kind and welcoming staff. We didn't realize that most of the activities associated with Iguazu Falls are arranged inside the national park and not by the hotel but the hotel does prove transportation for a fee to the national park. The hotel provides a free evening shuttle to the main town but it's worth it to get a taxi into town earlier in the day especially to view the sunset over the three borders of Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil.

Great location and very attentive staff. Highly recommended!

We loved the natural walk given by Gabrielle, one of the indigenous Guarani people in the Iguazu area. He showed us how to set traps to catch small animals alive, and how that would be set as live baits above a jaguar trap. He also showed us the plants they used to carve canoes, to treat swelling and to stop bleeding. The front desk folks are very friendly and speaks English fluently. The only thing I would recommend is avoiding their shuttle to Iguazu fall national park. The return ride is more than 30 minutes late, because they only have a single van servicing all the different locations and the van was held up at the Brazilian side. We don't blame the driver for this since he is trying his best, but his management needs to put more cars into service.

its in the middle of the jungle. its perfect for those who love nature. the only access is on taxi or small bus. its 20 min from airport and 10 minutes from downtown. the hotel has bike to take free self guided trips through the jungld. It also has a daily tour guided by a native indian. it is located 15 min from iguazu falls argentine's side and 40 minutes from iguazu fall brasilian side.

This is an excellent facility. Large, well appointed rooms with all modern conveniences, beautiful grounds and a wonderful swimming pool. The only negative is the location - it is off the road in the middle of the jungle so once you are there, there is no place to go without calling a cab. The restaurant was good for breakfast but eat dinner elsewhere. The staff tried hard but they were overwhelmed by the number of people arriving and leaving at the same time, and not much English was spoken. In conclusion, a great place with wonderful facilities, but the location is remote. If you are interested in privacy and quiet, a great place.

Great staff, very friendly and helpful, and spoke good English. Beautiful setting. It's not perfect, but it's very good!

The name of the hotel is definitely well chosen because you feel as if you are in the jungle.

We stayed 2 nights at La Cantera Jungle Lodege Iguazu in February 2013. Our room - a lodge - was very large, had a huge balcony and gorgeous views. The whole property is just beautiful. The architecture is brilliant throughout, both the rooms and the common areas and we will always remember fondly this beautiful property for its design, ever so peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast is very rich and tasty, I absolutely recommend this place, it is one of the most special places l have ever stayed in.

Excellent location, quiet and peaceful. Shuttle service available to local attractions and airport. Friendly available staff able to assist throughout the day.

Nice lodge, not far away from Puerto Iguazu center, something like 10 minutes ride. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and we enjoyed it a lot. The room was really nice and oh my good! what a balcony you have in there. Staff at the hotel were competent and like everybody else in Misiones very kind people. Food was good but not awesome. I'll sure recommend it.

amazing little jungle hotel, so relaxing, out in the jungle, yet accessible to the main town when needed, recommend renting a car while staying there...

Nice room but don't look for luxury. Excellent staff. Good breakfast. Nice pool. Average dinner but very good live music with it. They tried hard to make for a pleasant experience and by and large were very successful.

This was a great hotel we loved it, perfect for a couple traveling. Rented a car and made it easier. Food was great, rooms were beautiful, made you feel like you were in the middle of the jungle!

We loved our stay in the hotel. The location is great, very serene and surrounded with nature. The pool is cool and the rooms are nice, big and clean. The staff is very relaxed and the wine and food selection is good, all in all a great place to stay and just disconnect from the world. Make sure you try the mousse "dulce de leche" . The only down-side is that you will be a bit far from the Iguazu national park, and getting there will cost you 200 pesos (just the transportation) and they only accept cash for this service. So, if you are planning to go there every day, add 200 pesos (aprox 50 usd) to your budget. Finally, although I went there with my g/f, I did notice a lot of single girl tourist staying in the hotel. Don't know if this is usual, but....

Very nice hotel with a very helpful staff. Nice location in the nature, very quiet. Good breakfast. Rooms clean and comfortable. Nice coctails and pool:)

This hotel was amazing! From the friendly hardworking staff to the beautiful setting to the delicious food, La Cantera is located in a perfect relaxing setting after full exhausting days exploring the falls. It is secluded, down a dirt road, so having a car helps. However, we did not and walked the 1 1/4 miles to the main road and caught the local bus (cheap!) to both the falls and el centro. We ate both nights there, and the food was 5* and reasonable. It was great having your own private screened porch (no insects) to relax. The pool setting was great too. The staff is very helpful and are constantly working to keep it clean and free of spiders (it is the jungle after all!). Would definitely stay there again!

We really enjoyed our stay at La Cantera. The staff was very hospitable and offered many tips in making the most of our stay there. The downtown is more than walking distance, but we didn't mind paying the 2 pesos for the bus or the 30 pesos for the taxi/remis. This hotel is one of the newest hotels in the area (about 2yrs) and feels kind of isolated from the rest of the city, which to us was a nice feeling. If you're looking for convenient access to the downtown or the waterfalls, this is probably not the place for you. But if you want to walk or bike through the jungle, visit the local natives, go on a horseback tour, definitely stay here!
