Verified Reviews of Chaminade Resort & Spa

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice Property. Good Service."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Enjoyed our stay.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
02-Oct-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Sep 19 to Sun Sep 22 2019 at a $149.89 average nightly rate.
"Beautiful remote area, dated but comfy room, upstairs noise!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We were told our room was vacant but dirty. Many others after us were given rooms. We had to be at a Wedding at 4pm. When I went up to the desk again, We ended up taking another room that was ready. I don't think it was the quality we paid for. It was dated, but comfortable. It might have been one of the buildings that had many children, babies. Loud crying and talking until after 11:30pm. The room above us must have had no insulation between the ceiling and top floor. It sounded like he was walking hard back and forth that night and again early in the morning. Unbearable. We checked out as soon as we could in the morning. Alot to pay for just having a room to sleep in for 7 hours.

15-Sep-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Sep 14 to Sun Sep 15 2019 at a $227.35 average nightly rate.
"Not a Resort more like an old Motel in the Woods."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Main building very nice and setting in woods is beautiful. Property and amenities far from luxury. Very old buildings, loud, thin walls, no heat, torn thin mattress, paper thin sheets, so dusty and smelled of pet urine and dander. They ran out of water at the spa. Difficult to steam or sauna dehydrated. Beware there is no jacuzzi, just a hot tub of chemicals with worn out plaster and water shooting straight up no jets. Bathrobes were dirty and torn. Housekeeping never replaced or cleaned glasses, wiped things down. One night they forgot our dinner order completely. Had to reorder an hour later. Despite multiple requests for assistance to remedy issues and request to speak to manager we were consistently told no manager was on duty. No apologies, no compensations. Poorly maintained, poorly managed. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Property Description

Transformation complete! We are so excited to share that our main villa, where you will find the fireplace lobby/front desk, both restaurants, and 12,000 s.f. of meeting space, has received a multi-million-dollar transformation (photography coming soon). Keeping the integrity of our historical, iconic Spanish Revival architecture, we paired a neutral and earthy color pallet with bold tile and textures, creating a casual-luxe aesthetic that is both comfortable and classic with attention to pattern and detail. Now more than ever, our offering of newly transformed indoor meeting space coupled with expansive, unconventional outdoor meeting space ensures a healthy and safe event space for you and your attendees. As with our design, we pair the same bold attention to the details of your event. Your attendees will enjoy staying in 1 of our 11 two-story villas, no elevators needed. Each villa features 12-16 guest rooms or suites, first floor rooms enjoy a patio or balcony, many with forest views. Whether you choose from our creative and effective teambuilding experiences, or let individuals explore our 3+ mile redwood hiking trails, enjoy bocce and other lawn games, our 300 acre mountain top retreat overlooking the Monterey Bay is sure to provide the perfect backdrop for your next meeting. Up on a scenic mountain ridge, this stunning retreat commands a panoramic view of the Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Chaminade offers a true escape and is still only five minutes from golf, beaches and downtown Santa Cruz! At Chaminade, our commitment is to ensure that our guests enjoy a memorable stay at one of the finest resorts in the Santa Cruz area.

"hank you! I will definitely be recommending your service to others I know. It made the confusing task of booking a hotel block easy as pie! I can't imagine how tedious it would have been to call each of the hotels- and who would want to when they all competed for our business instead? :)" C.T. - San Marcos, CA
