What I liked:

Staff was friendly and helpful.

What the hotel could do better:

In major need of a renovation. Photos are not accurate. Outdated, cheap. Bathroom was bad, dirty tiles, sub-grade. No hot water. No water pressure. No properly functioning TV. Lacked any sophistication. Food was terrible, not fresh.

Hotel Description

Location isn’t everything when it comes to hotels, but it’s not nothing either. In some countries Le Caméléon’s crisp, contemporary monochrome look might signal little more than membership in the local boutique-hotel scene. In Costa Rica, land of natural-finish eco-lodges and thatched-hut villas, its modern interiors and glossy white-on-white color scheme is something of a statement — a statement to the effect that while the Caribbean coast is all about the beaches, the water, the jungle, there’s no reason why you can’t live in the urbane, sophisticated style to which you’re accustomed.

These rooms are about more than just looks, with comforts that begin to edge into luxury-hotel territory: plasma TVs, iPod docks, some with king beds and private balconies or terraces. Die-hard luxury junkies will have to admit they’ve seen rooms that are bigger and plusher, but in these environs, anything more would be incongruous. Suffice it to say the physical charms are every bit the equal of the visual ones, and taking the natural environment into account, it’s essentially paradise. There’s a stylish pool deck for the moments when you don’t feel like venturing all the way to the beach, there’s a full-service spa, and the Numu restaurant and bar are stylish spaces, accentuating, perhaps, the contrast between Costa Rica’s Caribbean and Pacific coasts.

How to get there:

Le Cameleon is 136 miles (4h30m) from the Juan Santamaria Airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
