We recently had our wedding here and couldn't be happier. Everything went perfect. Angela and all of the staff did a phenomenal job. We were very impressed. Angela made sure we had absolutely anything we needed at all times. She took all the pressure off me, the bride, which was great! Food was amazing. The attentiveness of the staff was... More

We hosted our daughter's wedding here on September 17, 2016. I cannot say enough good about everything. Wedding on beautiful patio with ocean in distance. Lovely cocktail reception with delicious appetizers. Then upstairs to a beautiful, delicious dinner in Santa Cruz ballroom. Staff here is wonderful. Wedding coordinators helped us with perfect planning and were present for entire wedding and... More

Really enjoyed the Farm to Table Wine Dinner. Fabulous food and wine with gorgeous views, live music in the background. We indulged in couples massage at the spa. Clean updated suite with great food room service. Highly recommend.

Great staff. When a slight issue arose, they were ON IT right away. It's on the more expensive side, but other properties that aren't nearly as nice that are close the Boardwalk aren't that much less. Very quiet room. Restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced when I ate there last year.

Situated in a beautiful redwood and eucalyptus forest, the resort is older, but the rooms are clean and comfortable with a large flat screen TV at the center and a cute, old-fashioned fridge cabinet for your perishables. I am here for a conference and although I think the grounds and rooms are lovely, I find the staff in need of... More

Dear Greekbecky- Thanks for taking time to share both the good and challenges experiences of your stay. You are correct we rely heavily on local college students to fill our seasonal positions. While we do hire for attitude first, obviously several key components of customer service were missing during your stay. I will openly share your comments with the team.... More

We came for a three night, holiday weekend stay. Our first impression was that the room was severely underfurnished; basically two beds, a chair and a tray table. there was no dresser or drawer space, and only an ikea type unit in the entrance with a few hangers and shelves. We basically lived out of our suitcases for three days.... More

We went to Santa Cruz just for the day. It was Labor Day. The resort was very nice. We wished that we were staying a little bit longer. The only bad experience was that the restaurant was not equipped for the amount of people that were there on a Monday (Labor Day). They should have planned ahead. We ate at... More

Dear Family, Thank you for taking time to leave feedback on the property, staff and details of your stay. Chaminade is extremely popular during the summer season, yes admittedly the wait time for dining can exceed our expectations. While we love a la carte dinning, the numbers are just too overwhelming on a busy holiday weekend to accommodate all. We... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely large rooms. No microwave in room but one was brought up to us straight away. Nice pool area. Rooms have great space. Only negative no lift so have to drag your cases up 2 flights of stairs 🙆 short spin into the heart of Santa Cruz.

Three words. Paper. Thin. Walls. I could hear our upstairs neighbors stomping around morning and evening. I could hear them showering, I could hear their children shouting...this was reason enough for me to choose other accommodations next time around.
