My husband and I stayed at Casa Chameleon for the last two nights of our honeymoon. This was the best hotel either of us has ever stayed in. Absolutely gorgeous, secluded, and romantic. Our favorite part of our stay (other than the amazing private infinity pool) was the food and drinks; I cannot say enough good things about the food. Fresh, local, unique, absolutely delicious...Chef Robb is AMAZING. He also had excellent surfing recommendations. Juan, the hotel manager, was also extremely helpful and accommodating.
The employees at Casa Chameleon almost feel like close friends; they truly want you to have an amazing time, and they go above and beyond the usual customer service. As an example...we hit a bit of bad luck while in Malpais, and my purse was snatched while I was sunbathing on the beach. It was a scary time for us, but the Casa staff was incredibly helpful; Juan helped me contact the US embassy and my banks as well as translated my statement to the police. Chef Robb and the bartender (wish I could remember his name) insisted upon helping to track the thieves to a local store where they had used my credit card and promised to follow up with the store owner the next day. My purse was never recovered, but all of the help by the Casa staff helped to calm us down and allowed us to still enjoy the last night of our vacation. I can't thank them enough.
Considering the price of similar boutique hotels in other vacation locales, Casa Chameleon is a great deal. We have plans to return for a longer stay on our 5th anniversary!
