Recently stayed at Chaminade Resort and Spa for a corporate retreat. The staff is excellent and provides great service. Rooms are located in two-story buildings around the large campus with the pool in the center. We found out the pool was closed for the week we were there so it would have been nice to know that ahead of time before we booked additional nights. The rooms are clean but a bit dated. Make sure you ask for the 2nd story as the noise for those staying lower was noticeable. There were no elevators in the buildings around the quad. Parking too can be a bit iffy if there is an event but there is valet parking and they do have a van to take you to your building if needed. The campus has walking trails and is very close to down town Santa Cruz but secluded enough that you feel you are in a nature retreat. There are tennis courts, pool, hot tub, and the spa with work out area. Meals were buffet style throughout the conference but the bar does have take away as well as light meals. Breakfast was not included in the rate on our extra days and there is a $20/day resort fee.
