Very friendly and helpful, a relaxing stay
We stayed only a few days, but found the reception staff to be very helpful when trying to resolve issues with tours and transport. The cabins were exactly as they seemed to be from the photos, and there were no surprise charges or any problems. Although we brought our own food, we discovered that basic supplies were available for sale in the reception, at very reasonable prices, which was a bonus.The playground, pool, and quincho were perfect for travellers with children, as were the friendly cat and ducks wandering around.

Girl's Camp Revisited
These cabanas are great for families! Beautiful property. The staff was kind enough but it would have been helpful to have multi-lingual staff as only one of our family members is fluent in Spanish. The only complaint was the hotel amenities list daily housekeeping which is not true. They gave us 5 towels (one per guest) at check-in and told us if we wanted clean ones to bring them back to the front desk and they would give us new ones. They told us they do not clean the room until we check out. Also, this property is down a very bumpy dirt road so beware if renting a car.

Complexe de cabane très sympa. Proche de l'entrée des chutes mais il est tout de même nécessaire de prendre le bus pour s'y rendre Pas de petit déjeuner sauf des craquettes et de la confiture fourni dans la cabane.
