I don't know where to start- I loved this hotel, in fact it was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The staff is exceptional Amaris, Jorge, Gerardo, Dewayne, Ana, Sonya (I'm sure I am forgetting names- please forgive me). Initially, I had booking issues, Amaris and Jorge were wonderful to assist me. Even though we only stayed for... More

Great Boutique Hotel, excellent service, the facilities well designed with the forest. You can not see the facilities easily as they are well camouflaged with the vegetation and forest. Music at the swimming pool, great rooms, cleans and spacious.

We had the most fantastic 4 nights at the Cameleon. The location is perfect with the forest nearby, proximity to excellent beaches and just a 20 minute walk into the town. The hotel itself itself is beautiful, set in incredibly well maintained gardens. The rooms were a great size, the bathrooms were well fitted and all were kept clean throughout... More

While on a beautiful trip to Costa Rica, we made a last minute booking to celebrate my birthday "in style." While the hotel toots its luxurious horn, the best thing going for it are its crisp white rooms. The staff is poorly trained, from dress code to guest management, they don't have a clue! From dishes sitting around in the... More

The hotel staff was extremely educated, helpful and professional, no complains at all, we arrived late night and they were waiting for us. Although it was raining almost all the time, the staff provided umbrellas for each room and the stay was very relaxing, the balcony was beautiful, we loved sleeping with the open balcony to hear the rain falling...

This hotel has limited service and the service is a little slow. The facilities needs urgent update as almost 10 years have past and there isn't a major uplift. Still, the only and best choice in all Southern Caribbean and right besides La Pecora Nera, for sure will be back...

My title says it all. If you want comfort and complete relaxation while in Puerto Viejo, this is the place to be at. It's kids friendly, and at the same time, full privacy is well kept there. We will re-visit it for sure!

We had no water 2 nights out of 4. Had to take a trip to Panama without being able to shower or flush toilet. Staff was friendly and food and service was good. Maid service was excellent. Pool area was nice.

This is by far the best option for a luxury hotel in the area. LOCATION: Away from the touristy downtown area, in a preferably quiet location. GROUNDS: Modern, yet natural with a small boutique feel. There are also sloths in the trees for those who enjoy animals. (Me.) AMENITIES: The pool is lovely, plays chill appropriate music. Rooms are clean... More

Great stay at this cleanly decorated little gem in PV. Nestled tightly into the lush jungle that surrounds it, it's hard to tell where the property ends and where nature begins. Greeted by the sound of so many species of bird in the morning, it was a pleasure to spend a few minutes on balcony before heading down for breakfast.... More
