We attended a Gamma Phi Betta event at the Chaminade resort and spa and I was very impressed by the service and food. I wasn't expecting it to be great as there were over 200 guests to serve all at once. We started with fruit and pastries and then we had eggs florentine. It was tasty and hot and served... More

We enjoyed our 1-night stay at the Chaminade. The room was of nice size with a king bed and a sofa for our child. Our room was on the first floor (1007) near the pool. There are no views from the first floor rooms in this building due to a tall privacy fence on the patios. The pool was great.... More

Last June my, then fiance now wife, and I stayed at the Chaminade Resort with several members of our family in preparation of our wedding at a near by location. The Chaminade is an amazing resort that is secluded from the rest of the surroundings with trees but it is still only a few minutes from downtown and the beach.... More

Beautiful hotel and setting. Took the Blue Trail walk early in the AM, stunning. Bartender in the Linwood was great, as were the food and drinks. The staff members at the hotel were helpful and personable. Would give it 5 stars but for the staff member who took my booking and the noise. Not unbearable but not soundproof.

Staff was exceptionally friendly....from the housekeepers to the restaurant staff and maintenance man. As we passed the staff, they would say hello and were very helpful. Room was clean and decor was delightful...although queen room was on the smalle side. We had a room on the second floor and it was quiet during our entire stay even though hotel was... More

We had a pretty rough visit to Chaminade. When we arrived an hour after check-in time we were told that there were no rooms available. Apparently they were not prepared for their reservations on the books let alone the families that were hoping to get rooms without a reservation. This was very hard to understand, and was made worse by... More

Booked in advance for a Sunday-Monday stay and basically stumbled into a seriously dis-organized hotel, playing itself up as a resort. Let's get the facts out of the way: * There is a daily resort fee * There is one big pool (aka where everybody drops off their kids) * There is a restaurant with a view of the tops... More

Came on Presidents' Day weekend. It's not a bad stay but far from the luxury I'd expect for the price. It is secluded and I think a good spot to relax or go for a hike (one of the few unique things here). The rooms seem clean but only as nice as a brand new holiday inn or some mid... More

Chaminade offered a wonderful package for the December holidays. It included many nice vouchers for food, drink, and to use at the Spa. I had decided not to go away for the holidays and my Christmas birthday this past December, but also did not want to stay home alone. A wonderful get away in my very own town was the... More

Great location - just 3 miles from Santa Cruz nestled in the green hills overlooking the beautiful ocean. Service was impeccable. Private views from every room. Large gym and spa facility. Great views from both restaurants.
