This hotel has high prices and we thought it would have similar high standard to other hotels in this price range in CR. The hotel itself is average looking- the room is less than average with an annoying shower and floor so that the room stays wet after you have showered. There were many small details such as stains on... More

À beautiful hotel, very we'll located with a nice beach club. The personnel is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious. And I like it that the paintings and the cushions n the room are changed everyday to a different colour, a real cameleon !

This hotel is sincerely not at the right level for the price we have paid. The breakfast is the badest we had in costa rica and very poor of variety. Equipments are very old and dirty, nobody cares or clean the private beach of hotel and the employees are not really kind and welcoming (exept Carlos from the bar was... More

The staff at this hotel were very pleasant and helpful. Everything was as described on their website. The rooms were large and clean. The beds were a bit small and quite hard though. The grounds are well kept including the pool. The hot tub is not heated as is the case with every hotel in Costa Rica that I have... More

After recovering from the shock of entering white deep freezers doubling as hotel rooms we were won over by the warmth of the staff. On the second day, with the room temperature adjusted, we experienced the changing colours of Le Cameleon. The base white brightens the rooms which are surrounded by thick tropical foliage and is the backdrop for the... More

The area is fantastic with beaches and activities nearby. This was our first time on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica and we loved it! The hotel is modern and well appointed. They have a small beach area which we found to be private and well kept. Beach service as well. We observed many other hotels in the area which... More

Thanks for taking the time to write your feedback. As you mentioned, there is a great array of small hotels in the region at a lower price. Some of them are very good while offering a complete different and more rustic experience. It all comes down to the travellers budget, preferences and taste. We offer a unique, upscale and modern...

When our travel agent told us that our original hotel had double booked us and was now kicking our reservation, I have to admit I was devastated. He told me that they had found a suitable replacement at a newer hotel and at this point I was just glad that we had an alternative for our honeymoon accommodations! When we... More

Hey Guys, Nice to hear back from you and congratulations again on your honeymoon! We were actually a tinny bit nervous before your arrival as Le Caméléon is completely different from the hotel your travel agent had originally booked. In fact we are quite unique for the region with our slick minimalist design and our daily changes of colours. Nevertheless,... More
