We were here on our honeymoon in March, and man are we glad we came here first! (We went north to Guanacaste afterwards). It's such a luxurious and intimate experience, due to the limited number of guests, couples only (we realized at our next hotel how important this was), and the amazing staff and service you receive. We were in... More

There is not enough one can say about Casa Chameleon and those that help make this place amazing. The villas are outstanding and the staff is more than helpful and experienced. Of course we our the type of people who love to venture beyond our hotel, exploring the local town and most importantly local food, but each meal, visit, and... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Chameleon for 6 nights in mid August for our honeymoon and it was absolutely magical. It was the best vacation we have ever had by far. We stayed in the villa Pochote and it was incredible! The room was beautifully furnished and very clean surrounded by the jungle with a view of the... More

Room: we stayed in Villa Estrella, which was amazing! This is certainly the most private Villa. We felt as though we had our our piece of the rainforest. The outdoor space was incredible! If you are wary of bugs, do note that there were various bugs in our room at all times. Also worth mentioning that you need to put... More

We stayed in the Villa Ultra for our 5 day trip to Mal Pais to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It's true there are many steps up and down a steep hill (134 to be exact) to get to the room but it is well worth it and we didn't want to leave anyway. The view is picturesque and waking... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed here except for all the steps to get to our fabulous room. We arrived during the night along with a hard rain. We were met out front by the security guard and one of the restaurant servers. Umbrellas were given to us and we headed down MANY stairs in the poring rain, very little light,... More

My partner and I just returned from a week in Mal Pais and stayed at Casa Chameleon. We wanted a romantic getaway that included a plunge pool and after careful research and debating many locations, we stumbled upon Casa Chameleon. We booked the romance package and now that we have returned, agree that although pricey, was worth it. While the... More

Ah, Costa Rica! This past spring my sister and I vacationed in Santa Teresa, on the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica. We’d heard so many wonderful things about the landscape, the animals – its natural beauty. It was all of that, and more. The ‘more’ being our luck in meeting the owner of Sapoa Adventures and also Executive Chef at the... More

Casa Chameleon was the perfect spot for our honeymoon. The staff is wonderful-incredibly attentive and kind. We cannot say enough about the food each morning and night! Both the head chef Pabro and sous chef Will were both incredible. We really enjoyed talking with Pabro about the dishes and local cuisine each night. We hope to be back in the... More

My Wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was an amazing experience. To be up front, we bought the romance package with comes with two meals a day, a rental car, and a tourist activity. I am not sure how it would have been with a normal booking. However, our trip was excellent. The manager and assistant... More
