    Very friendly and helpful staff. Great service at check in. There was a computer problem and we had to wait. We were given coupons for a drink on the lovely patio. The remodel is beautiful. Covid concerns were observed and we felt safe. I will be back. Worth every penny. This is not a cheap property.

      • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

      Chaminade is such a special resort. We’ve stayed there several times and keep coming back to this beautiful little hidden gem. The good: we love the staff, the forest view room is fantastically special and the pool & fire pits are wonderful. As always, the view from the restaurant is amazing and their Sunday brunch and cocktails are excellent. What could have been better: I could swear our room was listed as having a fridge and a microwave. We have two little kids so this is important to us. When we arrived it was the smallest hotel fridge I’ve ever seen and there was no microwave. They did deliver a microwave for $15/night but it felt a little odd to pay for what I had understood was included. Forest view rooms: These rooms are one of the magical elements of the hotel. Where else can you get a room that has a slider in back that opens up to the forest and a view of the Santa Cruz mountains. However, the room was renovated and while lovely, it felt smaller than I remembered. I would recommend families get the family rooms rather than try to squeeze Into the lovely forest view. It’s a bummer because having that outdoor space is so great for families but they apparently don’t offer forest view family rooms.
