Wow! A real gem. After a number of stays at Eco lodges out "in the sticks" with basic facilities - as advertised and wanted - this place was a chance for some weary travelers to have some R&R. Beautiful rooms with everything. Great pool. Beach club just across the road - complete with resident sloth when we stayed. After the... More

Initially we were somewhat disappointed because of their little beach with black sand and not much sun. With a cafe with loud music drowning the sound of the waves. And the fact that the hotel pool does not get the afternoon sun and has piped music. But.... It has charming staff, delicious calm breakfast and adequate dinners. Bedrooms are lovely... More

The people: Well what can we say... Ray made our hotel stay a perfect bliss! We had issues at the place where we were staying, so we showed up at Le Cameleon late at night one day. Ray was at reception, and he did EVERYTHING he could to try to book us for 7 nights. Keep in mind that this... More

We go once per year and stay at the Cameleon for 1-2 days. I have to say this year some things improved, some did not. I actually like the new breakfast much better. It used to be a buffet and now you get a small menu and it was much better than the buffet style. But the main issues I... More

Nice hotel at good location however the buildings and grounds need better maintenance. We expected better service during breakfast and dinner. It took long before orders were taken and food was served. Staff friendly but not very personal.

The hotel has a great beach club that is unique in the area because being there felt like being in the "jungle". Pool area of the hotel allowed for great relaxation. Although the room had a minimalistic interior, it was very elegant and slick in its design. The bed was pure heaven! My girlfriend and I truly enjoyed ourselves, as... More

I encouraged 3 families to join mine on a Xmas/N.Year Costa Rica vacation and after lots of browsing TA I opted to chose Le Cameleon Boutique hotel after seeing ample positive reviews. I have to say the grounds and rooms and pool area are very nice and inviting, however, must be blunt about the fact that their F & B... More

We stayed here for two nights, enjoying the beach, local national park (which we rode to on a rented bike from across the street). The breakfasts we had were great and the grounds (including a pool) were just incredible. The room was all white, with pillows in the room and around the grounds a new matching color every day- nice... More

Fun, funky hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our trip special. This hotel is really close to the Jaguar Rescue Center, which is a must see. Book a private tour to feed the monkeys, the highlight of our trip. Le Cameleon has their beach club across the street. I highly recommend spending time there. You can... More

Lovely modern hotel about 2 miles from town. Interior is painted white which in this buggy area is a real plus-you can see how clean it is! Color scheme is changed daily which s entertaining. Front desk is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Only surprise was the beach and jungle met so little space at the "beach club"... More
