I bid on a 4-star hotel through priceline and was booked in with Chaminade. The cost was $177.72 per night + 'the ridiculous' $30 resort fee (this was for a Saturday night over Easter weekend). We were put into a 2nd floor room, facing the pool. The room we received was a room that was separated by a door that... More

Had a very nice time with 3 girlfriends. Great gym, trails and pool. Sunday brunch was a bonus. Rooms should all have refrigerators! And after paying a daily amenity fee we should be able to use the spa pool, later than 9pm. Overall great place for girls weekend.

We stayed in a King Junior Suite. The room had a couch with a huge tear/hole on the arm, completely visible. All the wood furniture was scratched and really damaged. I would be embarrassed to rent this room like this if I was the owner or manager. That aside, the pool is great. It is heated well so we could... More

My husband John and I were in Santa Cruz last weekend for the wedding of our niece! We are so happy we found the Chaminade Resort & Spa on-line!!! Our reservations were made on-line and we were randomly upgraded upon our arrival! If you're celebrating something special they will also treat you to a complimentary glass of champagne or sparkling... More

My husband surprised me by planning a night away at Chaminade for our 7th anniversary. Upon arrival, I mentioned the special occasion and Katie immediately upgraded us to a suite. My favorite room in fact! The forest view junior suite on the lower level is lovely. We waited by the pool for our room to be cleaned. There was some... More

Santa Cruz is a sweet beach town so we wondered if being up in the hills (5 min drive) was going to be "limiting". But, it was perfect--Staying at Chaminade was a blessing. It's such a calm setting with the trees, trails, pool, restaurants and spa. That being out of the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk and beach was... More

I've been here many times, however it's been ages since I've stayed overnight. The location and the pool/spa are the only things this hotel has going for it. Specific issues I had were the attached shampoo/conditioner in the shower. Depending on your height you get a face full of shower water while trying to pump out the products. I admire... More

If you have to stay in Santa Cruz, there are few options that are decent. This is one of them, but in my opinion, you are way better to head to Monterey and get far more value and a much nicer stay for the same money. Warning, they add on a mandatory $30 resort fee. It's deceptive in how they... More
