Nice place

Posted 18-Aug-2014
It's a nice place to stay. It's set back in the hills a little which adds to it's beauty. The grounds are nice and surrounded by trees. There are a couple of hiking trails on the property, which was cool. The view from the bar and grill is amazing on a clear day.

Anniversary weekend

Posted 18-Aug-2014
Pros: Clean, calm, serene atmosphere... lots of room in the room.
Cons: small mini fridges for the rooms. we brought some health items that we had to throw away not knowing there wasn't one provided.
The facility was really nice and clean! The staff wasn't the most helpful, we asked about going downtown after our dinner there and they gave us 2 places to go that they disagreed about. They told us 'sorry there isn't much'.... Just wasn't what we expected from the staff, although we understand now there isn't much to offer.

The 70th and 40th BD Santa Cruz Get Away

Posted 13-Aug-2014
Pros: The grounds are lovely.
Cons: Rooms need upgrading. Staff training, w/attention to detail, whether it be large or small, regarding guests. Thoughtfulness and kindness go a LONG way
Location: Anniglass, Gayle's Bakery & Café, Lundburg Glass Studio, Wilder Ranch, Seabright Restaurant (breakfast) El Postal (dinner) MacKenzies Chocolates
This was to be a BD get away for me and my daughter. We had lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains for 20 years, so this was going down memory lane for both of us. I had called Chaminade to confirm our reservation, and mentioned the BD get away, upon arrival and checking in, no one said it's so very nice to have you both here with us, and hope you enjoy your stay & celebrating your BD's. It would have been so very nice, and such a simple thing to do, if someone at the front desk would have said something thoughtful regarding this. We found our room to be just okay. Melissa (at the front desk) told us that she was giving us a nice quiet room, and it clearly was not. The room backed up to one of the roads at Chaminade, with traffic going back and forth at late hours, and garbage trucks making their early morning rounds. The room rate for two queen beds, at a four star hotel, clearly wasn't what it should have been, & a big disappointment to both of us. There was also an extra $25 per day, resort charge added on, which I paid upon checking out. Upon checking out, I mentioned that it would have been nice, if someone had wished us a happy BD get together, and Melissa, said to me, well we have some new people on staff. I told her that they should be informed about little details like this, that make a persons stay a lot more enjoyable/memorable. There is also no elevator to the rooms upstairs, only stairs.

Awesome

When we got out of the car the first think we smelled was the fresh air. The rooms were great and the breakfast was to die for.

This is a really great place to stay w/kids too.

Posted 29-Jul-2014
Pros: Great staff, nice pool area, excellent bar and patio service, great views, peaceful setting.
Cons: The outside patio upstairs in our building didn't have any furniture or plants or anything. Ambiance could be better in the rooms.
Location: Close to everything including the freeway.
When we arrived with our group of 4 adults and 2 children we were told there was only one room on our reservation. I had my printout from Expedia showing 2 rooms. The staff was extremely polite and offered for us to go have a drink and appetizer, on the house, while they worked on finding us another room. By the time we were done with our snack and drinks, they called me on my cell to say they had two rooms for us and they even got them next to each other as we had requested. Nice Save! The pool area was great and the kids loved it. You do have to take towels from your room, even though I read on another review that you don't. The rooms are comfortable and clean- no as fancy as I expected, but perfectly adequate. Overall a wonderful setting and a great staff. The views from the restaurant, bar and fire pit are worth the stay on their own.

1 night getaway that was peaceful and relaxing

Posted 14-Jul-2014
The bed was so relaxing and cozy that we were able to catch up on some much needed rest. The restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere and view of the ocean, however we were underwhelmed with the food. The house red wine was fantastic though and Jr., our waiter, was fantastic!

Beautiful setting great service

Chaminade is a gorgeous resort tucked away in the Santa Cruz mountain staff was pleasant. Service was excellent. The resort was dog friendly which was great for our Maltese. Didn't get to enjoy the spa but it looked amazing. That's the excuse to go back nextra time.
