Frankly, I don't understand the need to post overly negative reviews about Chaminade.
Over the years we have stayed at Chaminade on several occasions, particularly when our children were young. Other families would meet us there so our children could play together.
The grounds are very well kept, the main building is geared to group events but pleasantly decorated, very clean, well tended and offers a spectacular view of Santa Cruz.
The rooms are fine: very well kept, clean, everything in good working order and with everything you might need, although I did not see a fridge in our room during our last stay.
Chaminade is not an inexpensive place to stay for a couple or a family but we have always enjoyed it and our kids, starting from age 3 and up always had fun.
There is a forest in the back of the resort where you can go for short hikes - no other place in Santa Cruz offers that.
The resort attracts weddings and other events and there are instances when guests are noisy but that's the only negative I have noticed.
For the best deals, book directly on their web site (my experience).More
