We enjoyed our stay but there is room for improvement. The rooms were a little dark and did not smell great. I am sensitive to smell and this room did not pass the test for me. We were in a ground floor room with a small patio in the back that overlooked a small drop off and trees. Very private... More

We used to love the Chaminade.. no more. Sadly we were there for a funeral lunch and we wanted something nice.. The dinning room was being used for a corporate event.. with a buffet. We were offered the bar area or we could join the corporate group. We opted for that as we were looking for a "nicer" lunch for... More

I called Chaminade to get a gift card for their stay as a wedding present. Justine on front desk was warm & very helpful. She noticed that Ali Rose & Manny's reservation did not indicate that this was their wedding night. She told me she would make sure that staff knew and would do everything they could to make them...

After reading reviews of this place, I was concerned that our 2-night stay would be less than enjoyable. I'm pleased to report that we had a great time! The grounds were gorgeous (beautiful back restaurant patio, fabulous outdoor pool area, etc.) and the service was excellent. Staff took extra special care to make sure we knew that our business was... More

With beautiful views of Monterey Bay from the veranda of the main house, this resort is nestled in a natural forest landscape. The rooms are well-appointed and quiet for the most part; the beds are very comfortable. If possible, choose a room on the back side with views of deep forest. There are hiking trails, a large swimming pool great... More

Our overall stay was a pleasant one, and the premises were serene and relaxing. However, my card was authorized for double the amount, which caused a problem when I went to use my card and the funds were not available when it should be. It still hasn't been credited back to my account yet! The property was very nice, all... More

The views and landscaping are excellent, the rooms are clean and decorated nicely, the food is quite yummy. I took my husband here for his birthday and we got a lovely handwritten birthday card plus a free breakfast. We walked around the property and found it very lovely and spacious with a beautiful views of the ocean. We have recommended... More

Quality rooms, service and facilities - worth the stay at reasonable/competitive rates. Would like to see a refrigerator/microwave available... Parking can be a problem but there is valet service so all can be accomodated

I would rate this place a 5 star but it is located right by the cemetery and that was kinda weird and the the bathroom where the pool was at was so disgusting! There was toilet paper everywhere and the door look like it was falling apart. It was plain dirty. Room was comfy and the property was beautiful. The... More
