My boyfriend and I stayed recently at one of the villas at Casa Chameleon, and the room and setting could not have been more romantic. The wooden walkway to each villa is bordered by lush vegetation, which hides the other villas and gives you the feeling of walking alone through paradise. Coming from Virginia, the vegetation and jungle sounds alone... More

The best service, from the moment we got picked up at airport by Don. Miguel to the last goodbye with recommendations from Jaimi at the front desk...for our next visit!! The food was fabulous. Local ingredients, Pabro and his team are excellent! Villa Estrella was wonderful. We will come back to Santa Teresa, Mal Pais after this wonderful experience!

I dined here at the behest of the chef, Pabro, who uses the freshest of ingredients presented in very innovative ways to delight the palate. The hotel itself is comprised of suites of various luxury, all for couples and it is therefore not surprising that it is overflowing with honeymooners. I loved the setting - the dining by the main...

We were fortunate to experience a very unique evening at the restaurant of Hotel Casa Chameleon. We enjoyed a fabulous local dinner prepared by Pabro Sanchez and his culinary team on our last night in Costa Rica. We were a group of 5 women on a wellness retreat and Pabro was our naturalist/guide on a hike! One of our group... More

Would anyone go 2,000 miles to return to a favorite restaurant? Well, yes, I admit I did, although it's not quite as simple as that. Others have written about the exquisite beauty, the wonderful sense of peace, privacy and tranquility, the amazing villas, etc. It's all true, and more. I want to focus on two things: the food served in... More

Casa Chameleon was our last stop on our Cost Rica trip, and what a finish. The other photos of the hotel do justice to the place, check them out - but there is no way they can convey the feeling and ambience of actually being there. Nothing negative can be said. The village of Mal Pais 5 minutes away by... More

Our experience at Casa Chameleon was fantastic! We spent the best 3 nights of our honeymoon there. Our room had amazing views, romantic privacy--our own private pool!--and the hotel is in an awesome location. Amazingly helpful and nice staff!

This was our second trip to Casa Chameleon and our 7 day stay was divided between Villa Sol and Villa Estrella. The villas, each with a private pool, are both wonderful. I loved starting each morning with coffee poolside, watching the birds. I would then swim in the main pool, burning a few calories, before a leisurely full breakfast. We... More

Have you ever seen pictures online of a hotel or resort that look amazing, then worry if the place actually still looks like that? Well, we had some of that worry, but when we arrived at Casa Chameleon, everything was just as promised...even better in real life. Immaculately neat and clean, beautifully designed and landscaped. The villas were comfortable and... More

Just returned from our second visit in two years to Casa Chameleon. My wife and I are a retired couple and our experience was wonderful. The six villas are very private and intimate. This intimacy provides a climate for honeymooners but we as an elderly couple found the peace and serenity perfect for all ages especially those that are entering... More
