Beautiful hotel, beautiful, stylish and comfortable rooms. Loved the large, secluded pool and hot tub. Rooms are perfect- super comfy beds, large bath with every amenity. Great wi-fi in room and even tv with HBO! The people at the front desk were so cheerful, helpful and kind. The beach club across the street is so stylish and has beautiful beach... More

It sounded wonderful.... enough to make me part with the entire cost of our stay in November when we booked it in August. But if you want to do white, minimalist, you have to redo the decor every year, and not just patch it up. It's not enough to change the colour scheme of the pictures in the room daily,... More

Le Cameleon is a little out of the main town and provides a nice and luxurious place to rest after a hard days cycling around Puerto Viejo (there's a cycle hire place just opposite the hotel). If you are looking for luxury this is pretty much the only place you will find it in Puerto Viejo as the rest of... More

Maybe I was disappointed by puerto viejo. I'm a curmudgeon, Admittedly. I really was grateful to have the best hotel to stay in. Gave me time away from the crazy people here. Thank you for that, le chameleon! Next time I visit, I'll stay here again. Civilized, if not quite luxurious.

The hotel is located right in front of the beach, just across the street the beach club. The town is a 10 min drive away. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel has a warm charm to it and the predominantly white rooms get a boost of color with the everyday changing deco. Even the swimming pool has changing... More

This hotel had very well appointed rooms. The beautiful rain forest grounds were wonderful, and you explored them on raised boardwalks. They changed colors of all decorations (even the pictures) every day - like a Chameleon... The food was great, as was the service. The balcony from the room was very private.

Most relaxing couple of nights i could have had in Puerto Viejo! The hotel is pretty fancy and the rooms are stunning. What i found amazing is that everyday the hotel has a "theme colour" so everything changes colour; from the reception up to the paintings hanging in your room. The staff is so polite and very well prepared, the... More
