We recently spent one night relaxing at the Chaminade. Hospitality and service were excellent. Pool and tennis courts were also excellent. Room amenities were more than adequate. Hope to enjoy the walking trails next time.

Found this gem after a rather unpleasant experience at another Santa Cruz hotel. We looked up this resort online, drove by and got a room for two nights immediately. The reception/concierge person (Nicole) was very nice and super helpful with check-in . Every staff member around the resort were very polite, willing to help and had good attitude in general....

We spent Labor Day weekend at Chaminade on the recommendation/referral of a friend. We opted for a Queen Suite because we were traveling with my mom (so 3 adults and two kids) and needed the extra room. The "master" bedroom was a bit small, but comfortable. The attached "suite" room -- which provided a pull-out sofa bed -- had a... More

We spent 4 days here trying to relax. I want go give credit to the birthday complimentary snacks (two cups of milk and a few cookies), however everything else is really just not to the standard of a resort. here are what we experienced: a) noise level is beyond horrible. The wall is so thin that any door closes/opens shakes... More

We came to California to visit family and decided on a whim to leave our son at his grandmother's house and get a room at the Chaminade for ourselves. We were so happy with it that we added two more nights. If we had more time to enjoy the resort it would have been great to explore the trails more,... More

The Chaminade is a hidden gem surrounded by redwoods and walking trails. The place is very unique and very charming. The pool is great, the fitness center is a full gym, the restaurants have amazing views. Highly recommended.

Beautiful ocean views over tree tops. The property is kept immaculate and the hospitality and service are 1st class. It is close to the beach, the Crows Nest and Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and many golf courses. I highly recommend for just about anyone!

I've had the pleasure of staying at Chaminade twice, once for a conference and once on pleasure. I absolutely love the surroundings - walking trails, redwoods and ocean views. The conference activities/space included indoor and outdoor areas with beautiful views. The onsite restaurant has a heated outdoor space overseeing the valley and full bar. My spacious room included views of... More

I found this resort online not having known anything about it before. I picked it for location and price. I was pleasantly surprised to find it has a lot more going for it than just this. Fantastic views outside my room window of a redwood forest - no need to close the drapes for privacy! The room was small but... More

Service was good and breakfast buffet was excellent. Nice wooded resort but needs updating. Did not get to visit the spa and pool facilities. Bar was nice with a distant view if the bay. Lots of families and pets so seems to be popular for that.
