“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We were very taken with La Cantera. We had a superior jungle-facing room, though in truth there wasn't much wildlife to gaze at from the hammock. Very comfortable bed though and we liked the atmosphere of a place so far removed from a sterile hotel. Pool was excellent, very clean and with some comfortable sun beds around it. Reception staff spoke good English and were really helpful. Restaurant food nice - but almost the same limited menu on successive nights (probably not too much of a problem as most visitors are on short breaks) and again very welcoming staff. Bar service very slow but we found this a common feature thoughout our trip and, hey, you are on holiday........

All in all, a great base for the Falls with a warm, welcoming atmosphere

A quiet hideaway in a tropican jungle, La Cantera is clean, quiet and comfortable, and offers relaxation and good value. The pool is fantastic on a warm evening, and the restaurant a great spot for fun with friends. The staff are superbly helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but not 5 star !

Room Tip: A room close to the restaurant enables better internet access

We spent there 2 nights, in the very end of our extensive trip across Argentina. Location is good, rooms are fine. BUT services are awuful. We had problems with light from the start, it just was switching off and during 2 days were fed by promises from the reception. One guy finally came to fix it, but problems occured again. We had a feeling that they simply didnt care. Lots of confidence but poor in action: we ordered dinner near the swiming pool: band playing was nice, but dinner..Gosh, it was the worth BBQ - meat dishes we had during all the 3 weeks stay in Argentina!!! for that price it looked like cheating on stupid tourists. Management has to pay more attention to the quality of service and really take care of the clients.

Staff were very helpful and friendly, food was excellent and location very serene and peaceful. Amenities were fabulous, with the jacuzzi being an added bonus! Only drawback is there weren't many tracks to wander through the jungle - would be nice to have that option rather than just ending up at another block of rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors do tend to hear the footsteps of those above you so if you want complete silen...

we really likes our room, it was beautiful decorated, large and with all the amenities you need and some. we loved the terrace with jacuzzi and that you could walk straight from the bathroom out on the deck/terrace. the pool is really nice with towels and a bar, but the area could use some repair work to go with the rest of the hotel. location is nice surrounded by forest. the service level in the restaurant i low and slow; breakfast table was emptied and only one poor girl to fill it up, lunch menu was old out most of the dishes and we waited a long time for two plates og fries.

The staff was great, smiling and very helpful. The atmosphere just amazing, really in the middle of the Jungle, as opposed to other resorts that were very much closer to the main road. We highly recommend the guided night tour of the Jungle with the hotel guide.

This hotel was a delight from moment one! First off, my little group of friends (4 of us total), had been a little worried about getting to the hotel since some previous reviewers had mentioned that it was a little off the beaten path. But we had no trouble! We easily found a van service from the Puerto Iguazu airport to drop us at the hotel. Part of the drive is down a dirt road, but this remoteness is precicely why the hotel is such a wonderful, quiet retreat.

The hotel is in very good shape, well-taken-care-of. Rooms are very spacious with fabulous screened-in porches. It rained while we were there, so we did not use the pool but it always looked fresh and clean. Service was wonderful; we were on a first-name basis with several of the staff due to their friendliness.

We stayed here two nights and ate at the restaurant both nights. The food was very good. Breakfast buffet was excellent, lots of hot and cold choices so it never got boring.

The hotel helped us arrange for a driver to assist us in getting around town and the park for the duration of our stay, which was very helpful. This was absolutly the highlight of our trip to Argentina!!

Room Tip: Rooms are in separate buildings connected by boardwalks to the main lodge.
