I stayed in one of the four Suite Villas which included an adjoining room or space w couch, etc. The hotel has lots of pluses including outstanding views of the pacific and sunsets, villas all to yourself, your own private plunge pool and sun deck w chaise loungers, chairs, table and outdoor sofa, warm and caring staff, an excellent restaurant w equal views to the rooms, infinity pool w view, chaise loungers and other seating, WiFi and the opportunity to escape via its location and deliberate absence of television. The negative would be lack of any shade whatsoever in your villa facing the pacific; no umbrellas for your private deck and pool area. After 12 noon the sun is typically unrelenting until it sets around 6 pm. If you are prone to sunburn etc you are likely to suffer here if you don’t lather up the sunscreen and keep reapplying. You can go to the infinity pool and use one of three available umbrellas after 12 noon or later; the other seating at the infinity pool will be in the sun by 2 pm. Most all excursions take some time to travel to from this location; there’s lots to do but most are well over an hour to reach. This was an ideal locale during Covid-19 times. All practiced safe protocols, you share no hallways or elevators, the restaurant is all open air and the hotel provided required COVID testing prior to departure flights back to the USA. I included the Food and Wine package which included cooking class, mixology class, tortilla making class, breakfast daily, credit to room for food and wine as well as transportation to and from the airport LIR... enjoyed it all and a good choice for us. …
This place is truly magical. I came here with a friend for my 35th birthday in March, 2021, and could not be happier that I chose this hotel for part of my trip in the Guanacaste region. Everything about this hotel is great. Incredible views over the ocean - I don't think it is possible to beat the infinity pool overlooking the ocean that seems endless. It's amazing! The room was great with a plunge pool and, again, incredible views. What really makes this place worth a visit is the staff - everyone is sooooo friendly. You can use WhatsApp to text the concierge anytime of the day and you'll get an immediate response. I just felt so welcome there, and really didn't want to ever leave... Do yourself a favor, come here at least once in your life and you won't regret it.
My husband & I recently returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Chameleon. It is a beautiful property. We stayed in a sunset villa suite & really loved the plunge pool. The service is amazing all around. From the valet, concierge, spa, bar & restaurant. They are all so kind and accommodating. Sentido Norte is fabulous! We can’t wait to go back!
I cannot say enough about Casa Chameleon! My husband and I spend the last five days of our six week trip to Costa Rica with them and we couldn’t have enjoyed our time more! We were guests there during the COVID-19 pandemic and were required to have a negative test result to return home. The hotel organized to have our tests taken in the hotel lobby 72hrs before our departure to make it as easy for us as possible. Anything that we needed was a WhatsApp message away. The room was beautiful, I mean breathtaking! We had a sunset facing room which we basically never left because we simply couldn’t take our eyes off the spectacular view. The food was incredible, the coffee was perfection, and the staff was helpful and kind.
We just stayed here for a week and 1) the COVID protocols were excellent (staff wearing masks, great cleaning protocols, help with testing onsite in order to return to the US) and 2) the location is absolutely spectacular. The rooms are comfortable and very nicely furnished. The housekeeping staff did a fabulous job of cleaning and the concierge team is just great. We wish we didn't have to leave!
