Over Le Caméléon Boutique Hotel
Midden in het dorp Puerto Viejo op korte afstand van het strand. Modern wit ingericht en met dagelijks veranderende kleuraccenten. De ene keer wordt u wakker in dieprood de andere keer in helderblauw en dan weer in jungle groen. Het open air restaurant is een eye-catcher, niet alleen om de verfijnde keuken maar ook om de opvallende staart van een kameleon die de gehele bar overspant en telkens langzaam in andere kleuren overgaat. Very special!

Tussen Puerto Viejo en het nabijgelegen Manzanillo liggen de prachtigste stranden, zoals Playa Cocles en Punta Uva. Deze zijn ideaal voor een beetje ontspanning tijdens uw rondreis Costa Rica.
"Sadly Dissapointing and a Rip Off"
As a newlywed couple, we chose to stay at the "Le Cameleon" for our honeymoon for the greater part of our stay in Costa Rica. We wanted something small, romantic and away from the crowds. Although you certainly get all of the above at "Le Cameleon", there are too many shortcomings for it to be considered a 4-star luxury hotel. I will start for the most disspointing event of all before I review the premises, an event that unfortunately left an ugly stain on our honeymoon forever. We were supposedly meant to receive a romantic dinner at the beach bar, a surprise wedding gift organized by our friends and colleagues in Switzerland. They were in touch with the hotel to set everything up, but the hotel never informed us of the event even though we were on the hotel premises all day and even proceeded to order a taxi at the reception the night of the supposed dinner - nobody at the reception thought of informing us (and there are only 23 rooms). Oblivious about the whole thing, we went to checkout the next morning and were only told at that time of the surprise dinner, to our great sadness. To this day, the hotel refuses to reimburse our friends' and colleagues' money claiming that it was their responsibility to inform us. A wedding gift that became a gift for a hotel. A completely unprofessional and alarming attitude for the establishment is claims to be. We really wanted it to be special, but now it has become an unforgettable stay for the wrong reasons. We don't consider ourselves particularly demanding, but we expect a certain quality when we pay the price. The location is breathtaking, but there is a general disorganization and little attention to detail that can quickly make your feel ripped off. I assume that for shorter stays such laxism is not as visible, but during longer stays (like in our case, 8 full days) these things become evident annoyances. The mosquito door of the balcony was broken. The bathroom had black mold stains on the ceiling and the towels were all ripped, as if totally overused. The toiletries were of low quality packaged in nameless white containers. What struck us the most, however, is that all this changed halfway during our stay, once the hotel owner came over Christmas with his family. Suddenly, everything changed. The toiletries changed and were of good quality, the breakfast menu changed, the paper napkins transformed into textile ones and the old, ripped towels were replaced with new ones. An unusual metamorphosis for a hotel claiming to be "luxury" and the best in the area. I would not give it more than 3 stars, if that.
"Enchanted! One of the most beautiful places I've stayed..."
I will give Le Cameleon a great review with a couple of areas for improvement... The hotel is unique and charming, also elegance in a jungle type setting is quite remarkable. It all goes, it's beautiful, it's quite, it's refreshing and appearance all around; at check-in, the pool, restaurant, grounds and room itself will leave You saying "Booking.Yeah"... The location is superv. My experience with check-in was quite pleasing, I felt welcomed and wanted, there was no issue at all with check-in and I especially appreciated the smiles from the receptionist and my welcome drink! It set the tone for my stay. The room was absolutely one of the best, I think any hotel taking a chance with the color white, through out, shows that they are not trying to hide in terms of cleanliness. And immaculately clean it was, the set up was incredible, everything worked, wi-fi was excellent and the balcony was the place to be as You will find yourself surrounded by jungle, sounds and feel of nature, peace and no worries in the world! Even the soft rain that came brought with it a heavenly aroma&feel that was unlike any other place I have been... ... There is always areas of improvement though, I did not see a coffee machine with a good Costa Rica coffee packet ready to go, which I thought was odd, for a room that amazing and quite a bit more expensive than the average in the area, this should have been an automatic. Having the right amenities can add enjoyment to any room and any guest's stay. Also, for the price, there was not a bell person greeting me at check-in. I think the utmost and proper welcoming any guest is to take their luggage from them that they have been lugging around traveling to your place. I did not use the phone to access the hotel services therefore I cannot comment on that aspect. All in all I give Le Cameleon 4.5 stars out of 5 and also, I have already booked a return to Le Cameleon for July2017! This time I plan to use the beach area, that just because I had so many tours going onðŸ˜Š
"El mejor hotel de la zona"
Excellent hotel... It is expensive but it totally worth it! The rooms are very nice and clean... everything white and simple. Breakfast was included and consisted of a selection of different dishes very tasty from clasical local "gallo pinto" to french toasts and fruits and coffee... really good! Also they have a beach club in front of the hotel... just crossing the street... where you can relax at the beach or take a drink
"Good & Bad"
We drove over from San Jose, about 4 hours, and we were pleasantly greeted with drinks as we checked in. The rooms are very spacious, and we followed the boardwalk along the pool to our rooms. The deck on the rooms really sits right in the jungle and the vegetation is amazing. The beds were ok, the bath large with a huge shower, no tub. The hot water was a bit unpredictable. The staff was helpful and willing to set up tours and connections. The food in the restaurant was so-so for breakfast and lunch and pretty bad for dinner, and the wait staff uninformed. The boardwalks around the hotel were not well lit and very slippery due to rain. One person in our group fell off into the mud but thankfully was not hurt. The area is amazing and there are very few air conditioned hotels here.
"A real boutique hotel"
To finish our tour in Costa Rica, we landed in Limon with a small plane. Pick up from hotel le Cameleon was there for us. After 40 min we were already in the hotel. They welcomed us with a fresh fruit cocktail and fresh towels with a fresh smell. We got our room immediatly. It was so beautiful, all in white, cool. We stayed there 4 days, every day they changed the colours,that was amazing. We went out night time in Puerto Viejo and we enjoyed it. Many bars, many restaurants, a real night life. The only negative thing comparing to the pacific side was the rain, too much.
