My daughter chose Chaminade for her wedding venue. Angela Cima was our contact there. I cannot say enough about Angela and the rest of the staff there. For the past several months through the wedding last Sunday, Angela has been helpful and accommodating. She reminded my daughter of deadlines, answered all our questions, and made excellent suggestions. She was there... More

Our room was fabulous. Roomy, and a great view of the trees and "woods". It was all-inclusive meaning we didn't have to leave the grounds. The restaurant is "fine dining" and has an incredible view of Santa Cruz. The spa is relaxing, and a gym that is really a gym, not just a couple of machines.

very clean, quite location on top of hillside with lots of shade trees, friendly staff, lots of activities for families, (basketball, tennis, croquet. volleyball) great pool and close to many attractions but away from the downtown hustle and bustle.

Thanks to Winona, we had a great room and a relaxing stay at Chaminade. Front desk staff was friendly, and our room had a fantastic view. Slept soundly in the extra comfortable bed! Wish we had a longer stay to take advantage of the features-next time!

We had a fantastic forest view with patio -- nothing nicer than waking up to nature - thanks Winona, you did a great job setting us up with a wonderful room at short notice! Felt like we were all alone in the woods. The pool and spa were also nice, loved the ability to do a few laps in the... More

Nice location for a hotel away from the of the beach boardwalk but close enough to be at the ocean in minutes. The room was nice but could use updating. Restaurant and bar were both above average. The staff was very friendly, professional and took care of all our needs. Pet friendly. I don't like the resort fees but I... More

My husband and I booked the "forestview" with a patio. It was on the opposite side of the pool, which meant it was so quiet and relaxing. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were so comfortable I slept through the first night until the last without interruption. We forgot that it was Father's Day the Sunday we... More

Girls Weekend at this resort. We wish we had stayed longer to enjoy the hotel's full amenities. Regarding the room, we stayed in a basic room near the buildings of the check-in area. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. There is an outside sink area, which helped with our group. The building we were in... More

Chaminade is a nice, clean resort with beautiful view and friendly staff. It was such a nice relaxing stay for us visiting from Virginia. Absolutely loved this place and would highly recommend it to everyone.

The resort grounds are amazing, and the patio deck that the restaurant has is breathtaking. I liked that the heated outdoor pool was open until 11pm. The room was spacious and very clean. I enjoyed the very comfortable bed and the soft and luxurious bedding made sleeping in a breeze. I suggest that you bring hiking shoes and the camera,... More
