I have stayed at Chaminade three times over the past decade. The customer service is exceptional! The grounds are immaculate. Play tennis, basketball, swim, or just lounge in the spa, there is SO much to do at the Chaminade. They have 3 hiking trails that are private and on site, very safe and of easy to medium challenge. The spa... More

This place is great! It doesn't take itself too seriously, like many reosort/spas. The staff is amazing, the amenities are fabulous, and the location is perfect. I went for a conference and slipped out to take a walk and found the most exquisite hiking trail that brought me out of my work world and into a nature paradise. This place... More

I had a wonderful lunch last week at Linwoods. It was a beautiful day and we sat outside on the patio. It was very easy to just sit back relax and have great conversations with friends. Service and food was great!

Hidden up above the Pacific while close to town, this is an elegant yet relaxed place to stay. The open areas, ocean view patio, bar, and banquet areas were just what the doctor ordered. I want to say the staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is the best I have ever had at a hotel. I was part... More

The restaurant staff was very helpful. Matt and Artemia, in particular, went out of their way to meet dietary requests. The conference set-up team providing break snacks went the extra mile to help: Noel was fabulous. My room was located in the 200 building and each day the room was clean/organized. The exercise equipment that I desired was available when... More

I couldn't be more pleased with Chaminade! From planning to execution of my business retreat, everything had gone smoothly. Resort staff were very pleasant, accommodating, and very easy to work with. My entire group, some traveled from the UK, were also impressed with the quality of cuisine and the variety of food choices. The location is great and the view... More

Had a lovely overnight stay here and enjoyed dinner very much at the restaurant. It was quite a busy weekend but service was great overall. Andrew checked us in and out and was very helpful and attentive. Great stay would definitely go back.
