The room was spacious and super clean. They paid attention to detail and had everything we needed available. The plunge pool was a nice touch and not a bad view anywhere.
The tours offered were top notch. Hugo was our tour guide and was very professional and knowledgeable. He had a real passion for his job!

A very magical place that together with the incredible staff and attention to detail makes it a wonder of a hotel! The beaches around the hotel are beautiful and very private.

For swimmers the pool is amazing. For foodies the food is to die for.

Thanks to all the staff for making us feel at home.

Be thoughtful that they’ll know your reservation by your first name and that’s how they know you throughout your stay!

I just returned from a blissful week-long birthday stay at Casa Chameleon - what a complete and absolute treat. I have stayed at luxury hotels and properties all over the world and Casa Chameleon surpasses most due to the stunning setting and first class personalized and friendly service. The property is gorgeous, the rooms (I was in a sunset suite) have amazing views, the pool is so peaceful and the town of Las Catalinas is a short walk down the hill. Sentido Norte (the on property restaurant) has great views and the food is the best in the area (for breakfast, lunch and dinner!). We relaxed, we hiked (several great trails for hiking and biking steps from the property), we did yoga, we ate, we drank and we laughed - really a perfect vacation. But as with so many other reviewers, I have to pay special attention and give thanks to the staff at Casa Chameleon - so friendly, so responsive, so customer focused - I don't know that I've ever experienced such a welcoming and service oriented crew. The concierge staff was exceptionally helpful and was very patient with all of my repeated questions and requests leading up to and during the trip - many thanks to William, Herlan and Pablo! I found them all to be particularly patient given that I do not speak Spanish and they were all so adept with English which was so helpful for me.

Really really special place. I can't recommend it enough.

Room tip: My Room (17) was a sunset suite and it had stunning views and was very quiet.

There are no words that could express the incredible experience my husband and I shared during our days there. The view from our room was breathtaking. The plunge pool was slightly cooler than a bath and was peaceful to spend time in. The restaurant had a thoughtful menu with a number of different options. We attended the BBQ on Friday night - excellent! Chef Jose shared how he prepared each of the five courses. He came around to the tables a couple of times. Every time he came to us, I was jotting down all the ingredients and how he made each item: roasted eggplant, portobello mushrooms, prime sirloin, short ribs, corn, sweet potato and pork ribs. He finished with plantains heated on the fire with vanilla ice cream. My husband enjoyed the variety of rum they recommended with the meal. Overall Exceptional!

The people were more than accommodating, always with a smile and willing to assist. The people of Costa Rica are warm, generous and generally happy people who want to share their beautiful country with you.

I would suggest, if you are not a physical/athletic couple, let them know you want to be closer to the resort. There are 22 rooms at Casa Chameleon. Our room was #20 and there were 81 steps to climb to reach the restaurant or reception area. If we had known, we would have definitely asked for a closer room when making the reservation. I mentioned it to Harlen, the concierge, and he said they would have accommodated our request.

If you want a private getaway, with all your needs met, this is the place for you. Pure Vida!!!

We stayed at Casa Chameleon for 7 nights to kick off our two week honeymoon in April and had a truly amazing time.

The property is beautiful and the views are stunning. This is an ideal place for those looking to rest and relax and the personalized attention from the staff really sets this place apart. As other reviewers have mentioned, the resort and the immediate area are rather quiet - this is not a late night, party destination but if you are looking for a romantic getaway filled with great food, drinks, and beautiful sunsets, don’t miss Casa Chameleon.

Getting to the property, we had arranged private transfer from Liberia to Casa Chameleon through the hotel. The driver was great and we were certainly glad that we didn’t have to drive the narrow, curvy road to the hotel and could simply sit back and relax during the start of our trip.

We stayed in villa 20 which is a sunset villa and had amazing views looking out over the ocean while in a secluded setting that made you feel like you were really the only room there. Twice daily housekeeping was fantastic and staff always kept our villa in perfect order.

While you can take the golf cart (or walk) down to the beach in Las Catalinas (and Casa Chameleon will provide you with beach towels, chairs, and a cooler) we spent the majority of our days enjoying the sights from the main infinity pool. Blas and the rest of the Sentido Norte team made sure we always had pineapple mojitos in hand and took great care of us while we lounged by the pool.

Sentido Norte itself is really quite good. Breakfast each morning and lunch by the pool each day was fantastic. Dinner was very good and varied enough that even having stayed for 7 nights and dined onsite most of those days, we hadn’t gotten tired of the food. Many nights they offer specials or a themed dinner - the Guanacaste themed night which highlighted local cuisine from the region was some of the best food we had in our two week stay in Costa Rica. All of the staff are fantastic but shout out to Carlos and Andres for excellent repeat service at the restaurant.

There are a few other restaurants nearby in Las Catalinas and we dined at Ponciana one night just to mix things up and they had surprisingly good pizza. We also had a casual meal and margaritas by the beach at Limonada one day. There are one or two other restaurants in town as well and a small “grocery store” that is really more of an expanded convenience store but it is nearby if you want to venture off property for any supplies without needing a car.

Spa services: We did a couples deep tissue massage through the hotel (they partner with a spa/salon in Las Catalinas) and really enjoyed it. They set up their tables in our villa and while it was a bit of tight squeeze, the massages were very good.

Excursions: We did the horseback riding trip and frankly would probably have skipped that if we had it to do over again (not the fault of the hotel in any way but the excursion itself is just ok). We also did the group catamaran trip which we really enjoyed. Even while the weather wasn’t ideal for snorkeling, the afternoon/evening on the boat was a lot of fun.

A few other honorable mentions - Rose and William were two of our favorite people (and first impressions) - they both went above and beyond in welcoming us and always making us feel at home as we were coming and going. William was critical in helping us with our dining reservations, excursions, and various other questions throughout our stay.

Again, if you are looking for a quiet, romantic place to enjoy excellent service, great food and drinks in a beautiful setting with outstanding sunsets and views, look no further.
