Pros: The hotel itself is amazing. The rooms are very nice, with amazing air conditioning (very necessary with how hot and humid it gets). The balconies on the rooms are surrounded with netting, so you can use them without getting bitten during high mosquito season. The staff was very friendly- anything we needed was taken care of immediately. The asado and live music they do on Friday nights was definitely a highlight.
Cons: A pro and con of the lodge is that you are very isolated from the main part of town. To go into the city to eat dinner or to go to any of the tourist attractions or spas you have to have the front desk call a taxi. Often the taxi drivers that the hotel called were more expensive than the regular taxi drivers. I would recommend getting the taxi driver's card who takes you from the airport to the hotel and use them or their recommendations for your trips to the Falls and to the city. At one point the driver the hotel uses tried to charge us 230 pesos to go to the falls, instead of the average 100 peso rate (at the time of this review). The hotel also takes advantage of the isolation by overcharging on alcohol and food. A glass of wine at the hotel was more expensive than the exact same whole BOTTLE that I bought in the City of Iguazu.
