The first hotel to open in Las Catalinas on Costa Rica’s Guanacaste coast sets the bar high for all who follow in its footsteps. The adults-only Casa Chameleon is sandwiched between one thousand acres of dry forest with hiking and horseback trails to the East and its beachy western border bellies up to the Pacific Ocean for direct access to snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding. Offering panoramic ocean views, the hotel features minimalist contemporary design and a zero-edge infinity pool with an outdoor bar.

With only 21 private villas, the hotel guarantees a secluded, intimate experience for all guests. Luxurious accommodations include king size canopy beds with glassed doors opening to plunge pools on private terraces, free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Guests can upgrade to west-facing rooms for unobstructed sunset views over the ocean or suites with separate living rooms.

Sentido Norte Restaurant & Lounge serves coastal Costa Rican cuisine for three meals a day. From made-to-order breakfast smoothies to fresh-caught seafood, creative dishes made with local products are available all day at the open-air cliffside restaurant. 

The resort offers in-room massages and facials. Workout and yoga equipment can also be delivered to each suite Private martial arts lessons, yoga instruction and personal training is also available upon request.

The view from the main pool was amazing. The staff was very attentive and helpful. View from our villa overlooked Sugar Beach... Room was just as pictured. Everything you need provided, umbrellas, bug spray, towels.

You do not need 4X4 to get from Liberia airport to resort if the take the longer route along the coast. Check out Limonada... food is excellent!

The views from the room of the beach and ocean were amazing. The food and drinks were good and the staff was amazing.
Other Comments
The construction noise is very unpleasant especially in the morning while sleeping. I would HIGHLY recommend that the bar do a happy hour for guests instead of the same prices the entire day. Also having live music in the evenings at least on Friday and Saturday's nights would make the evenings at the restaurant and pool even better especially since there is not a lot of night life near this hotel. If they could bring some live entertainment then I think guests would stay at the hotel bar longer and spend more money too.

The staff was excellent. The views and grounds were perfect. Could not ask for a better room.

Casa Chameleon is a 45 minute ride to anywhere other than the modern village of Las Catalinas. The beaches in this area are grey volcanic sand not the white beaches we are used to. Not much to do unless you do a tour.

This place is stunning! The staff, amenities, food, villas, adventure offerings...all of it was awesome! We will definitely be back, and hopefully via another Travelzoo deal!
Other Comments
Before booking, be aware there are many, many steps to climb to and from the villas. There may be access to some villas without steps but be sure to check that out first. Also, be sure to fly in and out of Liberia Airport...NOT San Jose as it's 4-5 hours away, one way! Liberia is approx. 1 hour away.

The terrace with plunge pool, the scenery surrounding the hotel, the hiking/biking trails nearby. We loved the hotel, the room and all of the infinity pools.
Other Comments
The food at the restaurant was excellent and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was excellent. Our only suggestions are to make the dinner, happy hour and in-room drinks packages more reasonably priced, and offer even minimal room service (such as coffee/tea in the mornings, etc.).
