If you are going to Costa Rica, Casa Chameleon is the place to stay! This was our second time at the hotel, and I’m happy to report that Casa Chameleon was even better than my husband and I remembered it! Both of the villas that we stayed in on this trip were beautifully decorated and were equipped with everything we could ever want or need – plunge pool, hammock, beach towels, iPod dock, mini-fridge, etc. They even had insulated wine glasses to keep our white wine chilled on warm nights! The attention to detail is incredible and makes for a stress-free, relaxing stay.
Both my husband and I took note of the hotel staff who are truly top notch – as a whole, they were attentive, responsive, and always had smiles on their faces. Vicky coordinated our room reservations (including a room change) and our car rental flawlessly, and she was just a phone call away throughout our trip planning. The hotel manager, Alonso, introduced himself upon our arrival and checked in with us throughout our stay. Erica booked activities for us, provided directions/maps, and patiently answered all of our questions. And this wouldn’t be a Casa Chameleon review if we didn’t mention the kitchen staff! Pabro and Will prepared dinner for us twice, and these were the two best meals we ate while in Costa Rica – no contest. We also really liked that they use fresh, local ingredients in all of the dishes. The bartender, Lily, mixed us some awesome cocktails, and it quickly became our routine to belly up to the bar for a pre-dinner drink while watching the sunset. I highly recommend the Strawberry Mojito! By the time we checked out, we felt like we were saying good bye to friends.
One more recommendation – get a massage! The manager will arrange for the masseuse to come right to your villa. You can choose to have your massage outside on the private patio and hear the ocean waves. I’ve had massages both times we’ve stayed at Casa Chameleon, and it’s such a treat.
We have told all of our family and friends about Casa Chameleon, and we really just can’t recommend it enough. Stay here and you’re guaranteed to have an amazing vacation!
