My husband and I stayed at Chaminade one Friday evening. I was immediately impressed with staff: everyone from vallet staff to front receptionists were very welcoming and helpful. After checking in I was disappointed with room, which faced parking lot rather than the spectacular forest view. Reception staff quickly accommodated and we were pleased with the result: a quiet room... More

Had a one night stay here for a family. This is a large hotel all spread out . The resort fee was another $25 so I used the pool since I had to pay for it but I had to walk a long way to get their. The rooms are nothing special. . I was at the boardwalk early in... More

Booking with Jennifer Taylor was a great experience. I travel quite a bit and this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Jennifer could not have been more helpful in every aspect of this trip. I am so looking forward to getting back on this property.

Attended a management meeting for two days in September 2014. Great food, great staff, great rooms. We had a very nice time, the breakfast, lunch & dinner were all excellent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Beautiful atmosphere and surroundings.

I went here for a management retreat in August 2014. The place was really nice and relaxing. Just a few min from downtown Santa Cruz. We had dinner downtown and meetings at the resort all day. The meeting area was clean and wifi was available. The breakfast was great. Highly recommended.

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
