I read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor before finally choosing to stay at Casa Chameleon and I couldnt be happier.
The hotel is situated on the hillside about a 1/2 mile up from the beach right on the edge of the jungle. The owners Anthony and Bobbie live on the property and are super friendly, inviting, and will do anything you need to make you comfortable. The manager David is also very nice and gave us a lot of great recommendations of what to do.
The hotel only has three rooms but they actually small little bungalows. They all look about the same size and ours was fantastic. We had a large balcony that has unobstructed views of the ocean, the queen bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was super cool with a rain shower and a great view of the ocean. The room was very clean, my wife can attest to that. It also had a small fridge and sink. No TV's here, you wouldnt want it anyways.
The property also has a moderately sized pool with some comfortable hammocks next to it.
At first i was a little apprehensive to stay at a hotel that wasnt on the beach, but once we got there we were so happy with our hotel. There are so many great beaches in the area that we were glad we didnt just stay at one.
Overall this place was great, the owners are wonderful, and we would go back anytime.
