Casa Chameleon in Mal Pais, Costa Rica

The emerald jungle swirls with a vibrant ambiance, giving way to glittering sand beaches caressed by the waves of the Pacific, and immersing you in the natural splendor of Mal Pais and the fabulous Adults Only Casa Chameleon. On the very tip of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, the six villas of this luxurious resort are a stylish escape, a delightful blend of modern comforts and beach bungalow relaxation. Crafted from rich woods and open to the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling glass doors, each spacious villa is serene and inviting with the gentle sea breeze and warm sun flowing throughout. Stylish bathrooms present enticing rain-showers, while deeply plush king-sized beds ensure wonderful nights. Step out onto your private deck, gazing out over sweeping ocean views, and stretch out in the hammock with the perfect cocktail or cool off with a dip in your very own plunge pool. At Casa Chameleon each day is crafted specifically to you, so you can do as much or as little as you please, and all in the tropical heart of beautiful Mal Pais.

On your first morning, as the sun warms the sea, breathe in the crisp ocean mist and relax to the sounds of the jungle as you sip a steaming cup of coffee and enjoy a gorgeous sunrise breakfast. Stroll down to the beach later that morning and find the perfect spot to call your own, then stretch out on the golden sands, soak in the sun, and dive into the crystalline surf to cool off. Enjoy an exciting horseback or ATV ride along the beach and through the gorgeous seaside jungle, then grab a surfboard and hit the waves in this famed surfing locale. Visit a few of the tropical tide pools and discover the delightful undersea world with an afternoon of snorkeling, or venture out on the vast Pacific on a scuba diving tour or deep sea fishing expedition. Venture out to nearby Montezuma and experience a breathtaking canopy tour, and continue on afterwards, hiking through the lush rainforest to stunning waterfalls and refreshing pools beckoning for you to dive in. As the sun begins to set over the Pacific, slipping tranquilly to night as the stars emerge, sit out on your deck or find the perfect spot on the beach and enjoy a fabulous meal crafted to your tastes and requests. At Casa Chameleon, each day is truly this exciting and each night just as magical.

*Thank you Casa Chameleon for everything! You have a beautiful boutique hotel. We were greeted with cool beverages and cool aromatic washcloths and friendly staff. Our many thanks! Our Vila was gorgeous, and I understand they are all unique... but all share one very cool amenity. A plunge pool. Ours was an infinity with a breathtaking rockfall waterfall feature trickling into it. It's situated on a steep hill so it does not have beach access, but the views more than make up for it! We rented an ATV and had a lot of fun accessing the beach this way. The hotel staff was friendly and very accommodating to our every need. Our dinner prepared by Chef Emilio was pricey but outstanding... worth every bite! Emilio takes the time to come and visit with the dinner patrons to talk about the ingredients, preparations, etc. First class! It was our best meal in Costa Rica! Jairo and Kaylor tended to our cocktails and brought a lot of personality and humor to our stay. They were all terrific.... Maria, Esteban... all! The hotel is very romantic and luxurious. The grounds are gorgeous and the amenities are everything you'd expect from a hotel of this caliber. We loved our shower which could be accessed from in or out of the room. We appreciated the canopy on our bed and used it every night to keep the bugs out. There really wasn't a problem with mosquitos or bugs, but the room is designed as indoor/outdoor so the folding patio doors are not completely sealed from the elements when shut. I highly recommend this hotel for a truly unique and first class experience in Mal Pais. Oh, the beach! There is a large section of Playa Carmen (the main beach) which has fine sand far into the multiple breaking waves... perfect for learning to surf! No rocks! None! The town is so cute and fun, has a wonderful bakery and lots of restaurants. Most people get around via atv, bicycles, and motorcycles. Fun vibe! No troubles for us!

My wife and I enjoyed a great and brief getaway at Casa Chameleon. We stayed four days and wished we'd had more time to enjoy and relax even more. We drove from San Jose and took the ferry from Puntarenas to Paquera. When we got to the hotel we were greeted with a nice cold drink and wet towel. Positives: Great staff starting by Andrea's team: Esteban, Kaylor, and specially Jairo were just attentive and friendly all throughout our stay. They even prepared an ice cooler for us to take to the former "secret beach". The villa (villa Camilla) was clean and just so private, we enjoyed not having any other guests within eye sight from our villa. Very private, comfortable and nicely cleaned daily by the maids. The grounds are kept nicely manicured and spotless. Great ocean views and direct contact with the flora and fauna. We also enjoyed a couple's message that was just what amazing. We ate breakfast at the hotel everyday as it was part of our package. They have great options from typical Costa Rican breakfast, oatmeal, pancakes which were yummy!. We also had dinner there which was delicious and the chefs are great and talented. Minor negative: The price for dinner. Again the attention of the staff and the quality of the food are above average but I think it does miss the mark on the price of the food. While we enjoyed our dinner, I think we would have dined more times onsite instead of going out the rest of the nights like we did had the prices being slightly lower. Paying almost $200 for dinner it's not something we were willing to do every night. On the other hand, this allowed us to visit great restaurants like Casa Del Mar, las Piedras, Habaneros and Caracolas. In the end, this was exactly what we were hoping for; a small boutique place with great staff and a quite and relaxing location to unwind for my wife and I. No need for a TV and the wifi was great when we needed to reconnect with technology.

First driving up, I thought I was going to be disappointed but as soon as the beautiful wooden doors swung open, I felt as if I had just walked into heaven. It is the most beautiful hotel and the most wonderful experience I could ever imagine. All I want to do is get back there as soon as I possibly can.

The staff at Casa Chameleon really made our trip special. They went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant and relaxing experience. The food was delicious and both of the chefs went out of their way to remember what we liked and adjust the meals to cater to our likes and dislikes. We really love the staff at Casa Chameleon and will miss them as much as we will miss the country of Costa Rica.
