The Iguazu Jungle Lodge is a beautiful hotel located about 6 blocks from the centre of town and the bus station. It is a somewhat uphill walk from the hotel to town and the streets are made of cobblestone so they are very rough. The grounds are attractive and well-groomed. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff and served a cool, citrus drink. The staff spoke good English. Luggage was transported over the cobblestone road by golf-cart.
We were astonished when we were shown our room. The front door opened into a full-sized kitchen with round table and 4 chairs. There were sliding doors to a sunny balcony. Our living room had a sofa, chair, table and fireplace. The bedroom had a queen-sized bed and sliding doors to a large corner balcony overlooking the jungle and bridge to Brazil. We wished that we were staying for a week! The only shortcoming of this hotel was that the kitchen had dishes but no basic food supplies like coffee or sugar. We had an entire kitchen and couldn't even make a cup of coffee. I used a saucepan to boil water for tea but had no sugar. The large kitchen sink was great for washing out a few clothes and the laundry was completely dry after a few hours on the balcony. There was excellent temperature control with 2 separate air-conditioning units in the bedroom and living room area. Since outdoor humidex readings were above 40 C, this feature was very much appreciated. We had very good, free internet access.
The pool area was great with lots of chairs both in the shade and in the sun. Water in the pool was warm.
We had a nice meal at the Romantica restaurant overlooking the pool. The food was quite salty but tasty and good portion sizes. Breakfast was served in the same dining room. It was quite extensive with fruit, juices, cereal, pastries, eggs and yogurt.
We had arranged for pick-up at the airport by the hotel van and they were there to pick us up on time. They also provided a taxi for our morning trip to the Iguazu Falls the first morning. We returned to town by local bus and used the bus the next day. We walked back and forth from the hotel to the bus station in town.
We would highly recommend this hotel to our friends.
