“Awesome Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

I plan events and offsite meetings for my company. Chaminade is a GREAT place to have these events. It feels like a resort and not at all like you are at a conference center. Its a great place to generate new ideas and free thinking. The conference rooms are very nice. The food is delicious! The staff is super accommodating and helpful! My event coordinators are so easy to work with. They know exactly what is needed to create a great offsite.
The guest rooms are spacious and comfortable. Lastly, the grounds and views are transcendent. I would hold all of my events here!

Staff at this resort are pleasant and very accommodating. The restaurant view is the best...food was good. I really liked the location and grounds and wanted to love the room. It was clean and well equipped but on the verge of shabby. It was off season so work was also underway.

The Chaminade Spa is a wonderfull place to relax and get pampered. My husband bought the "Body Glow" package for me which included a massage and facial. The experience was first class. I left there feeling revived and energized. Thank you Jessica and Sarah for the excellent customer service. Looking forward to my next treatments.

We stayed for one night, a family trip with small kids. We stayed on the recommendation of friends and so glad we did. Loved the very comfortable atmosphere, everything done well but not too stuffy or pretentious. Appreciated that the rooms were a little bigger than your traditional hotel room and had room for a small round dining room table, in addition to two queen beds. I'll take that over a larger bath. Fixtures were updated and higher end. Heated outdoor pool was great! A definite highlight. Even though it was well used, very clean and no obvious problems. Some of us enjoyed the breakfast buffet (kids under 5 eat free!). It's a bit off the beaten path and not near the beach, but loved having space and the quiet. We will return.

Room Tip: Property is large. If you are using the pool, consider asking for a room in the buildings closest to...

The view was great as my wife and I sat in the terrace looking past the trees to the ocean and the beautiful sunset. As it got chilly, the heaters were lighted and provided very warm heat. The waitress and all the people assisting were extremely courteous and polite. The three course meal presentation was excellent. The portions were served in a timely manner. Each portion had its distinctive flavor and complemented each serving well. The wine was an excellent . All in all, it was a great dining experience in a beautiful setting and atmosphere. My wife and I recommend it very highly.

Room Tip: It was a dining experience only.

Chaminade is one of my favorite places to get away. The staff are always friendly, patient, and kind. Everyone has repeatedly gone above and beyond to make me feel welcome and taken care of. I cannot say enough great things about those staff everything is always "sure we can make that happen" attitude. Beautiful property and facilities and a terrific chef- everything on their menu is delicious.

I came here in January during the "off-season" but really had a great experience. I shared a 2 bedroom suite with my father and my daughter and couldn't have been more comfortable. I live in NJ but have family in Santa Cruz so i visit frequently. Combining the rooms, pool, restaurants and the staff, this was by far my favorite experience in the area.
