This intimate mountainside retreat overlooking the ocean is a prime choice for adults seeking a romantic hideaway. 

Each one of the villas is exceptionally airy, with full walls that open up to the outdoors plus air conditioning. Each villa has a private patio and infinity pool. All rooms feature four-poster beds, two rain showers (one outdoor and one indoor), South Asian art, animal-print pillows and throw rugs, along with sophisticated contemporary furnishings. 

Rooms lack TVs and phones to encourage guests to unwind and explore their surroundings. Guests can organize a variety of activities including canopy tours, horseback riding, surfing, fishing, zip-lining and snorkeling. 

The on-site restaurant offers healthy food options and cooking lessons. Below the restaurant, a bamboo cocktail lounge overlooks an outdoor pool. Although there’s no spa, in-room treatments are available. For fitness buffs, guests can book private yoga classes, martial arts lessons and personal training sessions.

They really need to provide a private bathroom in the villas. The set up can really ruin the romance. Way too much chlorine in the pool. Otherwise, incredible!

The staff were fantastic, super helpful, and made an effort to get to know you. I felt like I was among family. They also didn't insert themselves too much so that my boyfriend and I were still able to have a romantic vacation.

The entire experience was exquisite. We felt incredibly pampered and our villa was beautiful. The staff were superb, friendly and attentive. Klarissa and Kathryn did an excellent job booking all our travel arrangements and excursions with great detail and expertise. Emilio, Esteban and Kayler were the best and made us feel like family!!! We loved every minute of our time at Casa Chameleon!!!

Hard to pick! The staff was amazing, food and drinks were world class, and we loved the privacy of our own patio and pool overlooking the area!

They really go the extra mile to make you comfortable and will arrange any activity you would like to do in the area. We loved that all the adventures they offer are with small local businesses - it provides you the opportunity to learn more about the area from locals. We hope to be back to Mal Pais and Casa Chameleon soon!
