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.

Clean room and helpful personell. We booked via booking.com and all where settled up, we thought. Suddenly they wanted extra $25 pp? for Spa... We wasn't aware of it and I couldn't find anything about it and nor we didn't use it. After an irritating discussion we agreed that we shouldn't pay. Breakfeast was quite complete and good but no...

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

We came to California to visit family and decided on a whim to leave our son at his grandmother's house and get a room at the Chaminade for ourselves. We were so happy with it that we added two more nights. If we had more time to enjoy the resort it would have been great to explore the trails more,... More

The Chaminade is a hidden gem surrounded by redwoods and walking trails. The place is very unique and very charming. The pool is great, the fitness center is a full gym, the restaurants have amazing views. Highly recommended.

Beautiful ocean views over tree tops. The property is kept immaculate and the hospitality and service are 1st class. It is close to the beach, the Crows Nest and Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and many golf courses. I highly recommend for just about anyone!

I've had the pleasure of staying at Chaminade twice, once for a conference and once on pleasure. I absolutely love the surroundings - walking trails, redwoods and ocean views. The conference activities/space included indoor and outdoor areas with beautiful views. The onsite restaurant has a heated outdoor space overseeing the valley and full bar. My spacious room included views of... More
