Any request was met, they went above and beyond to make sure you experienced the culture in all the best ways, and assisted with directions and advice for activities. The villa was stunning, and every day we came back from... More

Our trip to Casa Chameleon and Costa Rica was simply one of the greatest experiences my wife and I have ever had. We just returned back from one week at Casa Chameleon and Mal Pais for our honeymoon, and it was very hard to leave. The staff did everything to not only ensure our needs were exceeded but made us...

My husband and I just left Casa Chameleon yesterday and it basically broke our hearts! Of I could give this place ten stars, I would. This was our second stop on our honeymoon and I can say with some certainty that it is one of the most romantic places on earth. It may be a little tricky to get to... More

We could not have had a better time. The staff was lovely and wonderful. The space exceeded all of our expectations. Would have gotten the ATV over the car next time, because they're easier on the roads. We stayed in Villa Vista and LOVED it.

I never write reviews, but this stay was so special, largely due to the staff, that I decided to write one. My wife and I were going on our first vacation without the kids since we got married. We stayed for 5 nights, the first night we were in the Ultra and the rest in the Vista. The ultra was... More
