Chaminade offered a wonderful package for the December holidays. It included many nice vouchers for food, drink, and to use at the Spa. I had decided not to go away for the holidays and my Christmas birthday this past December, but also did not want to stay home alone. A wonderful get away in my very own town was the... More

Great location - just 3 miles from Santa Cruz nestled in the green hills overlooking the beautiful ocean. Service was impeccable. Private views from every room. Large gym and spa facility. Great views from both restaurants.

I booked a mystery 4 star hotel deal for my husband and I to have a relaxing romantic evening in Santa Cruz. With mystery deals sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Luckily, the travel agency refunded my booking and released us from the reservation within an hour of check in so our trip to SC wasn't a bust! Here's what... More

As a local girl, I've been to the Chaminade for lunch several times over the last several years and always enjoy the beautiful setting overlooking the Monterey Bay as well as the wonderful food, and each year I treat myself to a Chaminade spa day with massage and treatments followed by some basquing in the sun in the beautiful patio...

Chaminade Resort & Spa has a beautiful setting and grounds. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite and it was lovely. Noise was a factor for us due to the location at the end of the ground-floor building. Staff is courteous and service from them was outstanding. Valet Parking attendants were very friendly and gracious. Check-in and check-out went well.... More

We stayed for two nights at the Chaminade. There were 8 of us. 2 families with 2 adults and 2 kids. We both had rooms with 2 queen beds. The whole staff, from the reception to the restaurant servers, were nothing less than gracious. It is evident that it is a high priority for the staff to be polite and... More

We stayed here two nights for Pat's high school reunion. The hotel did a good job hosting the cocktail party and the gala dinner dance. We booked a roomy junior suite on the ground floor of the building next to the reception and restaurant building. Ask for a room backing up to the woods. We had a nice deck with... More

I was really looking forward to staying at the Chaminade but after I arrived, I realized that the place was so spread out that it was not very convenient walking to the restaurant and check in desk. There is nothing nearby except more of the resort. The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay. We stayed there for 3... More

Dear Ken B, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Sounds like you enjoyed your stay but opted for a place within the hustle and bustle of our town. We actually enjoy the serenity and remoteness of our resort and guests enjoy the fact that we are only 10-15minutes from local attractions. We love to hear the... More

Been staying at the Chaminade many times over many years and every stay has been highly enjoyable, whether on my own or with my family and whether for business in the area or for a few days of rest and relaxation. The place itself, the unique location, the amazing views, the friendliness of the staff - I highly recommend staying... More

When spending $250/night for a room and a breakfast with Santa, one expects the room not to smell like body odor when a heater is on. Nor one would expect Santa to have a very heavy Mexican accent and a half-heartedly glued on beard. The staff was rather disorganized and not very friendly- from the reception desk to the dining...
