Awesome room and beautiful scenery. Air conditioning is top notch! Love the shower and amenities. Staff is very helpful and it's not far from all the things in Puerto Viejo! Would definitely go back!!

Nice location, hotel has beach club and pool. Good service and food. Clean rooms with cool decor. At times busy but not overwhelming. We were there with family probably better for couples and singles.

Loved our time here, and we all enjoyed the daily colourful changes our maid service provided! Small, intimate boutique hotel with a lovely pool, and quirky lobby. The breakfast room/restaurant space is charming, too, though the meals we had, including breakfast, were hit and miss. (We had better meals outside the hotel.) Staff were mostly friendly and accommodating, though not... More

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms are lovely (and the A/C works great!) and the pool and grounds are beautiful. The proximity to the beach, and the service (food and drink) at the beach are very convenient. The food at the restaurant is in the mediocre range, and the one dinner we had there took... More

We stayed at Le Cameleon for 3 nights and had a great time. The staff is awesome! Each morning we had breakfast and it was wonderful. During the day we went across the street to their beach club and had a great time wasting away the afternoon on the beach with a few cocktails. Now let me get to our... More

The hotel is situated 3km outside of PV in the hamlet of Cocles. The staff are warm and friendly. Don't expect snappy western style service - this place runs on 'tico time', but it doesn't really matter in such a relaxed setting. The linguistic capacity of the staff is, however, very impressive. The hotel decor and grounds are beautiful and... More

The hotel and grounds have been styled beautifully. The all white room with changing colour schemes each day was lovely. Comfortable, clean and great to have a small fridge/mini bar. Pool area was a great place to relax and again was really well looked after. The Sula beach bar was a nice place to have lunch in with lovely food... More

The hotel is in Cocles, right outside of Puerto Viejo (10-15 mins away via car). Reception is beautiful with the high roofed bamboo and W-like decor. This is basically the W Hotel in the Caribbean. The rooms are stark white with colorful pillows and neon backlit padded headboards. The daylight bulbs in the rooms are a bit jarring. The pool... More

We did not live in the hotel but went to their ''beach club'' for pre-dinner-drinks. The drinks were pretty expensive (compared to other restaurants in the area), the beach out front very tiny and the beach-chairs in somewhat of an unfit condition/a little dirty. Which is a shame considering that while waiting for a taxi we got to take a... More

We appreciate your comment which I find a bit unfair. First of all, we are not a town restaurant or bar, we are a hotel restaurant. Comparing prices does not make a place better than others but service and location may help a bit more. In the other hand, I have visited many restaurants in town and our prices and... More
