Hotel Le Cameleon offers guests a stylish, upscale boutique hotel experience just south of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Jungle surrounds the hotel, but a quick walk across the street leads you to the hotel's beach lounge, positioned on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Hotel amenities include a restaurant and bar, spa, beach club, swimming pool and cool water Jacuzzi, and WiFi in some common areas.
The Southern Caribbean is one of the most beautiful, yet least visited destinations in Costa Rica. The beautiful white sand beaches are backed by palm trees and lush green rainforests. Nearby, Cahuita National Park and Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge are amazing places to see exotic animals in their natural habitat, gorgeous beaches, and great snorkeling from March through the beginning of May and the end of August through the end of October. The best surfing can be found from November through April at Playa Cocles and the famous Salsa Brava break.
Puerto Viejo is the Caribbean's main tourist hub, providing an ideal off-the-beaten-path beach town. Visitors will enjoy a tropical Rasta vibe at the many small shops, restaurants, and bars. The Le Cameleon Hotel is only a five minutes drive from town or about 15 minutes by bike.
The chances are likely that if you're going to Puerto Viejo, the beach is at the top of your list. The hotel's private beach club, Noa Beach Club, is just across the street, positioned on the south end of Playa Cocles. The lounge offers a small restaurant and bar as well as hammocks, daybeds, beach chairs and shaded areas. Guests can enjoy the amenities and conveniences of the lounge as the lazy days pass by on the beach.
The hotel's Ocho y Medio Restaurant offers modern international cuisine in a delightful setting. The restaurant's rustic ambiance with contemporary decor set the perfect stage for a jungle dining experience. Whether you are there for a meal or tropical cocktail, the Ocho y Medio is the ideal setting to unwind after a hard day at the beach!
The hotel also offers spa services in their treehouse spa. Professional therapists will help you to select the perfect treatment or massage. You'll delight in the experience as the sounds of the jungle and waves crashing can be heard in the background.

Rooms were a bit worn. And the breakfast fast was difficult bc there weren’t a lot of times.
The staff would sometimes get short with us when we would ask questions. The couples massage we received was not very good.
The room were musty. But the breakfast was good.
Practically nothing to complain - just the humidity in the rooms which is affecting the comfort and great experience
The hotel is in a good location, as it is away from the town. There are several eating establishments within walking distance. However, we were advised not to stray too far from the hotel due to safety concerns.
Great beach front restaurant and hot tub/pool.
This was a great hotel. Staff helpful friendly.
Although the room was very clean, the hotel as a whole lacked maintenance in most areas i.e. lack of landscaping, rotting boardwalks and bathroom ceiling with water damage.
