My husband and I stayed at Chaminade from 2/15-2/17 as part of our Baby Moon. As soon as we drove up the driveway we knew it was going to be a relaxing trip. The hotel is up on a hill, secluded, and quiet. Deja greeted us at the front desk and was so welcoming and eager to help make our...

Visited for 4 days and 3 nights. Clean and spacious rooms but an odd layout that had many of our group staying a long wet walk from the main building complex where all our meetings were held. Normally wouldn't mind walking but monsoon like rain for our entire stay made this tiresome to either get soaked or have to call...

Great service and good rooms. The resort has amazing views of the ocean and is located in a very peaceful sport. The staff was amazing. Front reception desk was very welcoming and attentive to our Groups needs.

We decided to take a small family weekend vacation down to the Santa Cruz area and discovered the Chaminade Resort & Spa on their website. We booked a basic room with two beds for Friday and Saturday night. We arrived late evening on Friday and were warmly greeted and asked if we wanted to stay in the first building or...

We were here for several days for a corporate sales meeting. All the facilities, including the guest rooms were very good. The food was decent. My only two complaints are the pool area could use a face lift and secondly, and this isn't the fault of the resort, but it is a few miles from the Santa Cruz waterfront, so...

We enjoyed our short weekend getaway at Chaminade. The junior suite we stayed in was nice. Very fun and funky decorations and furniture in the room. The bed was very comfortable and it had a nice sitting area. The room had a fridge and a coffee maker. In the bathroom they provided robes. We ate at the bar/grill and had...

Nice very clean and quiet hotel. Huge t.v., generous sized room, and fridge. I didn't use all amenities they offered. I only enjoyed the bar downstairs (Rich was great bartender) and the hot tub. Sodas in the coke machine were only $1.00, lol. The staff was pleasant. Will visit again.

Chaminade was a fantastic discovery for us! We SO needed this place to enter our lives. Remote, luxurious, quiet (unless you want to rock-out at Linwood's till the wee hours!), and 100% guest oriented Chaminade exactly fit our needs. We lived here for two weeks after the grueling and complex experience of selling our family ranch of forty years in...

The Chaminade is simply perfect and our most favorite place to stay for get-away weekends. We live less than an hour from Santa Cruz, and though we have a lot of options of places to stay in this area (from Santa Cruz down to Carmel), we most often end up at the Chaminade. The resort is a Spanish 'Mission' style...
