This boutique hotel was more than anticipated! The photos and reviews don't do it justice. We are in our 30s and from NYC and admittedly on the snobby side and were very impressed with le cameleon.
The hotel was very well kept and the decor was clean and modern - not sure about the reviews stating otherwise, but our room was great. The hotel is small and even with other guests it felt very private and romantic.
The beach is right across the street and amazing. There is a little section that feels very secluded that is set apart from the road by vegetation, a sitting area, and a lounge area with beds with curtains. We couldn't believe how few people there were on the beach at the hotel and nearby.
The hotel employees were mostly very helpful and accommodating with a few who stood out and took care of us for the whole trip. Outside of those individuals the customer service was inconsistent at times, but never bad.
There were partnerships with tour agencies to explore the area. It was convenient but I would recommend finding a place in the town to set up tours instead.
Food was pretty good at the hotel and the staff was very helpful recommending places in the town about 3 miles away. Drinks were good, but mild.
Over all it was an amazing trip and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic and adventurous trip in a beautiful location.
