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!

"True boutique paradise with both beach and jungle!"
We stayed for six nights and loved every minute of it. The hotel is beautiful, rooms sublime and the property really provides a full range of experiences. Walking to breakfast along a short jungle path way complete with a sloth resting nearby transports you without requiring any real effort. The beach house and waterfront is a place to wile away an afternoon, a day or a week! The food at the beach house and the umbrella drinks make it an easy place to relax. The staff's attentiveness and generosity were second to none. They can arrange horse back riding (Raul was amazing), rafting adventures and restaurant reservations (although their restaurant is great for dinner). Breakfast is included and is fresh and offers a great deal of variety as well as excellent coffee, juices, fruit and baked goods. All staff were amazing but we'd like to give a particular thank you to Carlos and Jocelyn for all their help and service. The concept of Le Cameleon is that every day is a new day and they deliver on a new experience every day with colour changes and details that delight. The location is also delightful - a tropical paradise away from the busyness of Puerto Viejo but close to excellent restaurants, attractions (Jaguar Rescue Centre) and beaches. We will be back!
"DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL !"
In summary: Poor service No running water on several occasions Expensive General lack of maintenance Beautiful setting, especially the beach, shame about the rest .... The hotel complex, which is very appealing, is sat one side of the coastal road, and the beach complex the other, although the road is not particularly busy. It appears the hotel was built very much on a low budget. The room(s) seems to have been kitted out with stuff from Ikea: fixtures and fittings are flimsy and second-rate quality. The 'superior' room is actually a standard room, and is dressed up on the hotel website to be something special. It isn't! Our bed is by far the smallest of the four hotels we have stayed in during our circuit of Costa Rica, and the least comfortable. Occasionally the bathroom, and also sometimes the bedroom, smelt of drains, which was unpleasant. There was one of those scented spray things in the bathroom that hissed every so often, no doubt to assist in keeping the smells at bay, but unfortunately this was not 100% effective. Clearly management are aware, and are unable or unwilling to come up with an effective solution. On the subject of the bathroom, there were three occasions we were without water. This appears not to be an isolated instance as I read in another TripAdvisor review someone else had encountered a similar experience. On one occasion we were that desperate, as we had booked a restaurant elsewhere, we had to resort to having a dunk in the swimming pool. Not ideal! While the room, and much of the rest of the hotel, is painted white, and gives the impression of clinical minimalism, it actually highlights the dirt and lack of general upkeep and maintenance. Staff at the hotel are the least friendly, and most lacking in English, of all our encounters with the locals of Costa Rica, which was a shame. Maybe this is just a Caribbean trait, but in any event, this was a disappointment. Service during meal times was therefore not the best of experiences, and at times we struggled to make ourselves understood. In addition, staff at the hotel seemed to have a low level of competency: when you made a request, it took reminders and time to get anything sorted. I would suggest this is probably down to poor (or maybe non-existant) management, as we saw little evidence of any managerial presence. There is a lovely breeze by the beach, whereas the poolside can be hot and humid, with little in the way of moving air. The beach area is actually very pleasant, with the beach bar within easy reach. There is a shower and toilets within this area, so visits across the road to the hotel or rooms are not always necessary. The pool itself is relatively small, and only has half a dozen or so sun beds and two parasols, although there is additional seating around the extremities consisting of chairs and deck chairs. The food we ate at the hotel for breakfast/s and one dinner was pleasant and very palatable, the downside being the efficient service (or lack of it), but that has already been mentioned. Overall, not a particularly inspiring stay or good experience, especially given the very high accommodation cost. Had we been able to, we would have switched hotels, but given this is supposedly the 'best' hotel in the locality, we didn't feel we had that option. Would certainly not recommend, especially given the significant expense ... As an aside, we did complain to the hotel manager, and while we saw a slight improvement in service levels, and no disruption with the water supply, two of the lights in the room/bathroom were not fixed 24 hours after having been reported.
"Wow... just wow"
Man is this place beautiful. A bit outside The main part of town but it was nice to be out of the busyness. We stayed in a superior room and I was a little bit nervous it wouldn't be worth the higher price tag but it was worth every penny. We had a second floor room with a private balcony over looking the foliage and partly the pool (room 38). There was an iguana that was hanging out on one of the trees during our stay which was awesome to see. We named him Juan Carlos. We ate in the restaurant the first night which was very tasty and decently priced. I had the whole red snapper which was cooked to perfection. The only thing I could say against it is that the coleslaw had far too much cilantro, but I also hate cilantro so anything more than a sprig is too much for me. My friend had the tuna which he scarfed down before I could try anything so apparently it was delicious. I also had the lime mousse which was more like a panna cota than a mousse but still delicious and refreshing. Breakfast is included and I had something different every day we were there. Everything was very good and huge portions. But our favorite part of the whole place was their beach club, Noa. It's directly across the street and it has a huge garden with tons of seating and lots of hammocks and sun chairs. There's enough palms that cast shade for people to stay out of the sun. The beach is beautiful and at the end of Cocles Beach so it's not super busy apart from hotel guests. The waves are quite strong there though so swimming isn't a good idea but it's good enough to play in the water a bit. Julie is the best bartender ever. So friendly and awesome. She gave is lots of recommendations for things to do around town and even offered to take us around on her day off. If you can afford to spend a bit more money this place is definitely worth it.
I stayed 2 nights in the superior room from 2/26-27/2017â€¦ the hotel has a beautiful luxury rain setting with all comfort amenities and my room was spacious and clean; it definitely met my expectation. The staff was super helpful and nice. The beach was nice and clean, the ocean seem slightly rough, but no reflection on the hotel or staff.
"White is a colour"
White as the sand and green for the vegetation, tropical plantes. You walk in between the flowers and the small forest on top wood steps on the floor. These wood steps guide you to the beach or the bar or the restaurant. Cocles beach is titled as one of the most romantic of the area. Trees on the beach give shadow. There is a bar on the beach. The rooms are suites spacious white mainly with spots of colours like unexpected ones. The atmosphere is very relaxing. It is an unbelievable place to rest.
