“Lovely room, great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Only stayed one night unfortunately. We had a lovely room which seemed quite new, only slight drawback was noise from adjoining room travelled easily but did not disturb us much.
The grounds are lovely and I really liked the slightly remote location.
The only minuses were that I thought the breakfast was a little disappointing. it was ok, particularly if you like cakes with your breakfast, but nothing special.
Also I felt like a captive audience for inflated cab prices. I wished I'd arranged for a cab from town to come to take me to the falls as if you book through the hotel you'll pay more. Not such a big deal but would mount up over a few days.
Would definitely stay again but sort my cabs out beforehand.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

There isn't a lot of jungle left in Puerto Iguazu town and this is one of the few places left. Thanks to CanFam333's tip (Oct 2, 2013) we hired the taxi driver Cacho de Lima. He picked us up at airport and arranged all our touring for three days, including Brazil and Argentina side of the falls, trips to town for restaurants, etc. He is a very good man, reasonable, and we liked him. He speaks some English and we speak some Spanish. Although his phone number in Argentina is 03757-15500453 from the states you dial 011 54 9 3757 500453. It took awhile to figure this out!
Since La Cantera is out of the way it is important to figure transportation in advance. Pay extra for the upstairs room. Quieter, more airy, screened porch is very nice. The grounds are immaculate with the wooden walkways and identifying signs on the different trees. Breakfast was fine. Wifi works. We thoroughly enjoyed La Cantera and highly recommend it based on our stay here.

Room Tip: Pay to upgrade for upstairs. "Mono" block was nice

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.

Room Tip: 5 series are the newest and quietest. No jacuzzis but great pool.

Hotel pictures on the website looks 10 times nicer and newer so please don't believe the pictures!!
Good:
1) Friendly staffs - they try to help you out with lots of different things. Good service minds!
2) Free shuttle service to the town - they have limited spots a day, so please reserve ASAP.
3) Decent breakfast - nice selections

Bad:
1) remote location - you have to pass through unpaved road..every time we went in and out of hotel, I got motion sickness due to bumpy road
2) very strange smell from the room - we had 2 different rooms. Both of them stinks. First night, it was real bad couldn't sleep well. It is like mixture of urine and some sort of cover-up scent.
3) old place - not everything is in perfect condition...so please be aware!

We spent two nights here and it was a very relaxing experience. The pool area is exquisite and we also made use of a lot of the facilities. However we were disappointed in the restaurant food. It was very small portions and no taste. We each ordered different things and had the same impression. It was saved by the Argentinian Bbq which they put on every Monday. That was a great experience with delicious barbecued Argentinian meat and salad bar. This was accompanied by local musicians which really added to it.Staff were accomodating and made it easy to plan trips in local areas. friendly an he planning trip trips around the arwa. They made it cery easy.

La Cantera is not cheap - be prepared to pay European prices in this jungle-styled 50 room lodge on the Argentinian side of the Iguazu falls. Food and service are good,friendly and reasonably efficient. The rooms are comfortable, the air-conditioning effective and the overall atmosphere makes for a comfortable base conveniently placed for access to the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of the falls. The Monday BBQ was great fun and other evening meals and breakfasts are perfectly acceptable. While here it is essential to explore both sides of the falls! and do the power- boat

This is a wonderful "jungle" hotel lodge located close to Iguazu falls. The rooms are big, clean and have wonderful beds. The onesite restaurant serves brilliant food - and the staff is beyond helpful. We only had one evening here, but could have easily spent a week!
