From the time I arrived I knew this place was unique. I had a great experience checking in with the help of Sandy. The grounds are a little confusing but there are maps to help you find your way. I loved the spa and fitness center. I highly recommend bringing your hiking shoes as the resort lies on 300acres of...

Beware that there is a $36 surcharge for resort fees when you get there. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay there. The restaurant was very good and staff excellent in sorting out a family of 12. The room was large and the bed very comfortable.

Stayed at the Chaminade midweek with my family. We had a great time. The pool and hot tub were great. Workout facilities were excellent. Views and trails were gorgeous. The room had everything we needed. And Deja at the front desk was awesome. She had my daughters laughing and smiling when we checked in. On top of that she had...

Our mid-week stay was largely positive. The rooms are lovely, as is the location. No doubt about that. For a resort that bills itself as top-calibre, however, the service could have been better. For example, I approached the reception desk at Linwood's with my daughter just before 9:00 PM--not extremely late--but we both stood there or 5 minutes before anyone...

We were attending a wedding at the resort and had a wonderful time. The rooms were nice but the king room was a bit crowded for two. And the room appeared to not have been dusted for a couple of weeks. But the bed and bedding for nice and the room was otherwise clean. The gym was certainly adequate. The...

This is a great place near Santa Cruz. Great views of the ocean and a beautiful place to walk around. Lots of fantastic trees on the property and just gorgeous views from the rooms and restaurants. Great place a little pricey.

Our room had a couple issues with the heater not working - but when we called they brought up a portable heater which worked! So we would recommend this place! It is large - has a lot of...

We hosted a dinner party for 80 people at Chaminade and it was terrific. Everyone raved about the food--entrees, appetizers and dessert were all delicious and beautifully presented. The service staff was extremely helpful too. The setting is lovely with beautiful views towards the ocean and hillsides. We also spent the night there and the sleeping rooms were nicely decorated...

Our agency, Monarch Services, held our Annual Fundraiser in one of their beautiful ballrooms. The evening was fantastic! Everything was setup as planned and the staff was very helpful and attentive from the moment we arrived to the time that we left. The food was great as well.
