I booked the Cameleon via the "Small Luxury Hotels" webiste, I wanted to stay some days in a luxury hotel on the beach - therefore I had some expectations on this place. Unfortunately I had to find out that this hotel is definitely not on the standard of a small luxury hotel!
The hotel is not well maintained, allover it needs some maintenance (as all the walls and most for the furniture are white they have a lot of dirty spots and would need to be remodeled), the garden is also not well maintained, the rooms as well. E.g. no safe, so I had to change the room...which took me a long time, not very convenient. The rooms are in a nice trendy design, but again the maintenance is not well done.
The staff is friendly, but they have not a clue what service on a high level means, so the overall service is also far below a luxury hotel.
The beach club is also in a desperate situation and needs some maintenance.
In addition we could not use the restaurant on 2 days as they had some events...well this makes it a bit difficult as there are not many great nice options in this area.
I can only repeat: a nice charming place with nice design, but it is a 3-star hotel and definitely not a small luxury hotel. I still don't understand they made their way to this group...SLH needs to review their selection criteria (btw I know from several people who stayed there they have the same impression...this just to show that there is some truth in my subjective view!)
