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

We stayed here for five nights and had an excellent upper level room, No. 38. Tje place is nice, tje staff very friendly and helpful and their manager offers helpful advice and asks for feedback during the breakfast times. The rooms are spacious and equipped with everything needed. The pool and the beach club are quite well maintained and offer... 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

We just spent the most amazing week in that lovely hotel and its gorgeous surroundings. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and took excellent care of us, especially when one of us 'caught a bug'. Our tours were easily arranged with their help and every effort was made to accommodate our wishes. Special thanks to our driver Rene who appeared... More

Everything is excellent here. Staff at the reception very professional, helpful. The setting is perfect, a nice pool and jacuzzi in the green, a beech club just across the road, a great beach and warm, clean sea. The rooms are big, extra clean, with a very nice minimalist “all white” design. Free, fast wi-fi. Buffet breakfast served in a very... More
