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.

Thank you very much for your review, we are glad to hear about the good highlights of your stay and at the same time we are sorry for the water issues.

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

We booked this hotel on the spot as we decided to skip part of out trip. Basically we searched for most comfortable and nice hotel with air conditioner that was not crazy expensive, and Hameleon just fit the bill precisely! It is not cheap, but it delivers everything you need to enjoy the comfort. White color dominates the design, which... More

I loved staying at Le Cameleon. The location is great, across the road from the beach and walking distance to good dining options and the Jaguar Rescue Centre. The rooms get 10/10 from me; I loved the clean white of everything - so cool and relaxing. The splashes of colour were fun and being surprised by the alternating colour schemes... More
