Relaxing atmosphere!!
Very relaxing. Hiking trails are great! Location is close to beaches but resort is in the woods. Restaurant food was great!

Chaminade Resort & Spa
There were quite a few issues with this hotel. One of the primary reasons for my reservation was that it looked beautiful and serene. It was also the most disappointing part of this stay. We wanted to enjoy the terrace and the restaurant. However, we were quickly told that it was off limits due to events. The pool was nice but small considering that the hotel hosts thousands of people. There was really nowhere to sit. A group of people kept ordering drinks and the server kept bringing them. Clearly, they were being over served and drunk. At one point, they were laying on each other. Disgusting considering this was a family pool. Further, the rooms were not "family rooms." They were small and crammed. The "balcony" is two chairs next to a dark wall. I am not sure why anyone wants to go outside to sit and stare at a brown wall. The pictures over sell the hotel. They are not an accurate reflection of what you are getting. If you want to stare at a brown fence and pay $300 for massage, this is your place. Please see attached pictures for reference.

Great Place in Santa Cruz. Can’t wait to go back!
I had a wonderful two night stay at the resort. The hotel was nice and spacious and the staff was both kind and responsive. If I could change small things it would be expanding the food and beverage offerings (even little things like offering almond milk - that shouldn’t be a big deal in Santa Cruz). The spa was wonderful but not staffed well with few people available for the great services they had. My massage was fantastic and the people there were amazing.
