This is the best hotel in Puerto Viejo and the best hotel we stayed at during our entire trip to Costa Rica. The grounds are spectacular. You cannot take a bad photo anywhere. We stayed for 4 days and I wish we'd had the time to use the pool and enjoy the beach club more but we were busy trying... More

Cool place! Very comfy beds, nice balcony view (complete with the odd Tucan visitor each morning) and the daily changing of room colours was something for the hipsters! Breakfast is also immense here. We ate like decadent royals, mixing Gallo Pinto (I miss you) with some delightful fruit and pastries, and washing it all down with some great Costa Rican... More

We were staying in Puerto Veijo for several weeks in a small rented house. After ten days, we decided we need more privacy for our six family members. I was able to reserve 3 rooms on line at the Le Cameleon for a luxury break. The rooms were wonderful and clean. They change the color scheme daily. The breakfast was... More

I am PICKY! You can stay here and be happy if you want, a beautiful, pool, room, beach, delicious food and great service. I visited the beach club (La Sula, bartender Duyane-awesome) all week!! I didn't want to leave! The vegetarian nachos and panini are delicious. The hammocks and the music make for a perfect afternoon.

We loved everything about this hotel from the moment we stepped inside. The room was clean and fresh and as it was our honeymoon we were presented with a bottle of sparking wine as a gift. The decor is changed on a daily basis which gives this hotel its unique style. The staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is... More

What a tasteful and passionately created place this is! I intended to stay for only one night and then travel on to Panama City but felt my soul finally coming to rest after a very tough year.

I finally had the time to explore Puerto Viejo and visit its probably most exquisite hotel. I actually prefer old fashioned places but I was too curious to find out what Le Cameleon was like since my cousin went there two years ago.

We were at the Cameleon last March and again this January 2015 and things I complained about before are still the same, while others improved. This place tries to be some upscale hotel but is not. You don't need to be upscale to be a good hotel but if you charge as much as they do (in this area they... More
