We had a wedding dinner celebration for our son and daughter in law at Chaminade this summer. Angela Cima-Edmonds was very responsive to questions emails during the 6 month planning process. She encouraged us to go with the larger room which turned out be the best decision as the # of guests was higher than anticipated. She helped us make... More

We loved it here!! We stayed here for one night on our journey from San Francisco to LA during our honeymoon. After checking in, we found our room to be spacious and tranquil, with views of the forest. The rooms appeared to be designed so you could not see other accommodations from your window, which was a welcome sight! The... More

We had friends getting married here and we were celebrating our anniversary, so we decided to splurge and stay here for the weekend, rather than at a cheaper motel in town. We called reservations to book the hotel and were told that the wedding block was already full. However, I was also told that we could book under their Fall... More

We stayed one night. Jennifer in reservations was helpful and customer service-oriented. Chaminade is in a beautiful and peaceful location tucked away from the tourist sites but a close drive. The hotel is busy with conferences and weddings, but the staff made us feel welcome and our room was nice. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the view of the... More

The grounds are beautiful, well kept and there is a very friendly professional staff. My Massage by Karen was the best I've every had ! I highly recommend her, She is excellent and relieved an old injury I've had and relived pain from a recent one as well. Ask for Karen when you get a massage, very professional and nurturing....

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

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.
