    Great location......

    The property has a great location, hotel is across the street from the beach. Their beach club is beachfront. Parking is on the street, there is a guard. The hotel is a bit weathered, it requires serious maintenance and some upkeep. I do understand the conditions are severe due to high humidity and salt in the air. My bathroom did have some mold that needs to be take care of. Overall the hotel is nice and I do look forward to returning soon....

    Servicio agua sin aviso o visibilidad/atencion

    It was good. No hubo agua en la habitación, el viernes durante la noche, llego pasadas las 10pm. No hubo visibilidad del corte, tiempo de arreglo o y/o algún servicio de botella de agua al menos para cubrir alguna necesidad básica (inodoro u otro). Veníamos de SJ y fue un poco molesto principalmente la falta de visibilidad y que luego, no hubiera nadie que contestara o se hiciera responsable de avisar después de las 10pm. Por suerte, el agua llegó.

    The Place to Stay

    It was amazing. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were very modern and perfect. The beach bar and grill on the beach was out of this world. We will be back

    Algunos detalles de mi estancia este fin de semana: 1) Ni siquiera tienen la cortesía de poner una botella de agua en la habitación. 2) shampoo, acondicionador y shower gel mega diluidos en agua. 3) Cortinas sucias 4) perillas de los baños en mal estado. Muy mal !

    Worst stay - staff were horrible to us

    adly our stay at Le Chameleon was the worst we’ve encountered in all our lives. Not only were the rooms very unclean, but as everything is white, it shows all the marks, dents, bugs and worst of all other people’s hair! The bathroom had nice amenities but hair stuck to shower walls was grim. The safe also didn’t work and needed someone to come fix it. First night, our room had no electricity. No staff around after 10, but Jorge (manager) refused our call 15times when we tried to call. Cenk Kinay - ‘Vice President’ of the hotel was even more rude to us. the bill came and we were overcharged for multiple items. When we pointed this out he started to shout at us, say we were rude and made racist remarks. Wholly upsetting and surprising. Cenk managed to ruin the service and all his staff’s hard work by exploding at us. It was rather hurtful and aggressive. Not something you want to experience after a nice jazz evening. Furthermore the app was not working at all. The website is full of misinformation, so you actually don’t get to make full use of the resort. You never know when the class and activities are beginning, let alone a timetable. The one sent after booking was all wrong. Customer service (if you can find it) was not present from the minute you step foot in the hotel, no proper welcome, we didn’t even get a hello! Also no drinking water in rooms. And stains on all towels and bedsheets. Highly recommend getting another resort elsewhere. There’s much nicer places

    Beautiful place

    Le Cameleon was beautiful. Staff was very helpful, and worked hard. However, the check in process was very disorganized. Not enough staff available at check in time, and too many guests needing things simultaneously. The beach club was phenomenal. Yoga class was great. Did not care for the food.

    I liked the overall ambiance of the hotel, however the hot water was not that hot (barely tepid) & the room was very wet because of condensation from the adjacent room, which occurred when I turned off the ac because it made the room too cold.
