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

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...

We had a business meeting at the Chaminade recently. My first impression was poor but it the place grew on me during the stay. When I got to the room I felt it was a bit outdated and dark. I had to turn on almost all of the lights. The Alarm clock was set incorreclty (about 3 hours off...that's annoying).... More

This is really a beautiful place situated on 200 acres above Santa Cruz. The room was really nice and so were all of the amenities. The restuarants and staff were wonderful. We brought our dog and the were very accommodating. During the rainy day they let us eat in the restaurant with him! The one bad thing was the insulation... More

We had a wedding dinner celebration for our son and daughter in law at Chaminade this summer. Angela Cima-Edmonds was very responsive to questions emails during the 6 month planning process. She encouraged us to go with the larger room which turned out be the best decision as the # of guests was higher than anticipated. She helped us make... More

We loved it here!! We stayed here for one night on our journey from San Francisco to LA during our honeymoon. After checking in, we found our room to be spacious and tranquil, with views of the forest. The rooms appeared to be designed so you could not see other accommodations from your window, which was a welcome sight! The... More

We had friends getting married here and we were celebrating our anniversary, so we decided to splurge and stay here for the weekend, rather than at a cheaper motel in town. We called reservations to book the hotel and were told that the wedding block was already full. However, I was also told that we could book under their Fall... More

We stayed one night. Jennifer in reservations was helpful and customer service-oriented. Chaminade is in a beautiful and peaceful location tucked away from the tourist sites but a close drive. The hotel is busy with conferences and weddings, but the staff made us feel welcome and our room was nice. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the view of the... More

The grounds are beautiful, well kept and there is a very friendly professional staff. My Massage by Karen was the best I've every had ! I highly recommend her, She is excellent and relieved an old injury I've had and relived pain from a recent one as well. Ask for Karen when you get a massage, very professional and nurturing....
