We stayed at Casa Chameleon for five nights for our honeymoon in June. Everything was absolutely wonderful, and we loved our experience there from start to finish! We stayed in the ultra luxury villa and booked the romance package - we highly recommend both. The room is huge and gorgeous. It has a private infinity pool, hammock, plunge tub, rain shower, sitting area, kitchen, and a super comfortable bed. The doors open fully, and you can hear and see the jungle and ocean fully from the room, which is extremely relaxing. Our only minor complaint was that mosquito netting would have been nice, as there were some bugs after rains (I understand some of the other villas have netting). The housekeeping staff really do a great job of making the place beautiful and welcoming; every day, we returned to a new "towel animal".
The food was to die for and the service is great. Rob is truly masterful at creating dishes that are made with local, fresh, and different ingredients - amazing. All the food was great, but I particularly loved the catch of the day dishes, which were literally fresh fish caught that day. Breakfasts were also awesome (and included) and always came with fresh local fruit, which is so much better than similar fruit from the U.S. We loved sous chefs, Oscar and Ron. Their service and breakfast prep were wonderful and we loved Oscar's stories :) They'll bring the food to your villa if you want, but we found that the atmosphere in the private restaurant was better!
Jessica and Alonso in the front office were also very helpful and accommodating. They arranged our travel from start to finish and provided a lot of helpful advice about where to go and how to get there. The grounds of the resort are amazing and private - at most, there are 3 other couples there. It was great to relax by the pool with cocktails and fresh guacamole and literally have no one else around. Overall, we loved our experience at Casa Chameleon and would recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious, relaxing getaway!
