My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with EVERYTHING at Casa Chameleon. The location is beautiful, the grounds are well-maintained and though heavily landscaped, are done so in a way that it looks completely natural, which is what we like. The staff is warm, friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Chef Rob, for instance, brought yoga mats to our room when we inquired about them. We didn't even know yet that he was the chef, and would not have expected him to run a housekeeping errand like that, but everyone there is so committed to every guest's pleasure, that this kind of service is the norm. Speaking of the chef, the food was awesome. Anyone who says that eating in Casa Chameleon's dining room is too expensive for what you get, or is not anything special, obviously is cheap or pretentious. While the food is not overly fancy, everything we ate was cooked to perfection, and it is clear that the chef and sous chefs know how to prepare fresh fish and local fruits and vegetables in a way that captures their naturally wonderful flavors. The villas themselves are GORGEOUS. PERIOD. You feel like you are in your own private island; it's quiet and picturesque, yet also very chic, with so much attention paid to the detail of not only the villa decor, but the entire hotel grounds. My husband and I plan to return next year at the same time, prior to the Christmas holidays. For what you are getting at this place -- setting, accommodations, food/drink, personal service -- it is certainly a bargain. Anything remotely comparable to the amenities and service stateside would be probably at least quadruple the cost. Bravo Casa Chameleon!
