The view from the deck at the Chaminade is absolutely breathtaking. I could sit there all day looking out at the ocean. The service here is wonderful, the spa was amazing. My only issue really was that they messed up the reservation when we first reserved 5 rooms, and it too us a couple hours on the phone to clear... More

My first visit to Chaminade Resort was incredible ! From the staff to the grounds and of course the food, delightful. The spa was full service, they couldn't stop pampering us. I would recommend Chaminade to anybody wanting a relaxing getaway.

I have stayed at Chaminade twice now--both times for business meetings. The rooms are SOOO in the 70's and the parking is insufficient for all the guests and event attendees. Be aware that there are NO elevators in the buildings with the rooms, so if you cannot hike up the stairs make sure you request a first floor room. On... More

I was pregnant with my second child and due a week before Valentine's Day. I knew I wanted to have one last romantic dinner with my husband before the baby was born and I wasn't sure if I could make it until Valentines Day. Very last minute, I called the Chaminade Lindwood's restaurant and made a reservation for their outdoor... More

We spent a Thursday and Friday night here and didn't leave the grounds. The staff was very accommodating and during check-in, when Sandy discovered I had a birthday earlier in the week, I received a fun card complete with some coupons for the restaurant. The food was delicious from breakfast to dinner. We also enjoyed the hiking trails winding through... More

Overall, I had very high expectations for this trip and while I would love to give it a great review, it just didn't live up. It was my wife's 30th bday and our one year wedding anniversary this week and I wanted to take a mini romantic vacation to celebrate. I love Santa Cruz and from the website, Chaminade looked...

It was our first time to this resort for Easter Brunch and was not disappointed. The food and service was excellent. It is hard to find a restaurant that serves a great buffet and keeps things hot and fresh including fresh OJ and a robust cup of coffee. The view of the bay was spectacular. This resort knows how to... More

We stayed here for a short getaway from the city to celebrate my friend's birthday. We were greeted at the front desk by Jorgia who was very nice and helpful. She was exceptional in taking care of all our needs, from dinner reservations to a quiet forest-view room on the upper floor. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch, gorgeous views and... More
