There is mould everywhere in the bathroom, spiders and eggs are hanging in corners, the inside of the minibar is dirty. Superficially everything looks ok, but it isn't. The breakfast tables are not... More

Thank you to the friendly staff that helped us through the stay. Clean and white rooms, color changing everywhere (Le Caméléon, now I get it), a garden that grows way up high, excellent food, generous and delicious breakfast, beach access, relaxing pool area...

We absolutely loved this place for manyfold reasons. The food at breakfast was delicious. The staff was accommodating. The decor is surprising and holds true to the title of the hotel: colours are changed everyday, even for the artwork in the rooms. It is a lovely surprise every single day. The music by the pool was relaxing. The beach "La... More

We stayed at Le Cameleon for 3 nights during our honeymoon. On the Caribbean coast, you shouldn't expect anything to be too "fancy" but Le Cameleon had all the elements of a nice resort.
