My girlfriend and I stayed here in May 2015 after few weeks travelling around Costa Rica, and what a way to end a wonderful holiday. We were made very welcome with a professional induction and welcome drink. The staff were very approachable and eager to help, solving any queries we had and giving us tips. The room was unbelievable, we... More

We just returned from 5 days at Casa Chameleon, and I could not recommend it more. From the moment we arrived (and even beforehand with our interactions with Vicky to confirm reservation details & have our questions answered), the service was warm, knowledgeable, and top notch. Cesar and Andrea, as our servers, were so friendly and endearing, and Chef Pabro's... More

My wife & I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was the perfect start to our trip. The staff was incredible and went the extra mile for us. Pictures don't do the suites justice - you can tell there was a lot of thought & detail put into every part of the resort. A couple tips: definitely rent a... More

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Chameleon but were VERY disappointed with the booking staff and the solutions offered. I originally booked my stay at Booking.com in July of 2014 at a deeply discounted rate. I then received word from Booking.com that my credit card was denied. After eventually speaking with Vicki in the booking office, I provided her with... More

My wife and i recently celebrated our honeymoon by staying at Casa Chameleon. It was all it was cracked up to be and more! While it is a somewhat remote location to get to it is well worth the travel. The highlight of our trip had to be the cuisine that Chef Parbro created for each meal...from the catch of... More

Went here for our honeymoon and best decision we could have made. The hotel itself is like walking into another world. The room and views are hard to beat for sure. The front desk will help you with anything you need and other than that the hotel staff is as invisible or accessible as you want them to be. The... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying Casa Chameleon's Villa Ultra for 3 nights in April 2015. It was absolutely beautiful and homey feeling. We used the infinity pool every day. The food was amazing for breakfast and dinner. Chef Pabro, Chef Michael, Andrea, Cesar and Naomi were all very caring and made sure we enjoyed the whole experience. Chef Pabro... More

This place is amazing. Everything you read in the reviews is accurate. We were sad to leave on our last day not only because we were leaving paradise, but felt like we were saying goodbye to new friends. Every single person on the staff was extraordinary.

We had the pleasure of dining at Casa Chameleon last night. Chef Pabro Sanchez and Andrea did not disappoint! A power line was downed on the main road, but having no electricity did not stop this amazing meal and ambience from delighting us! The starter fish broth was bursting with fresh flavors.
