As far as a beautiful location wanting both mountain scenery/ocean views, amazing food, cozy fun rooms, amazing helpful and friendly staff and all inclusive resort- this was our place!!! We wanted to have it All-In-One and we got it here. We had the pleasure of staying at Chaminade for 5 days. We were married the day after Thanksgiving in the...

We absolutely loved our stay and will be back for sure! We were there for the New Years Eve party and it was absolutely spectacular -- way beyond our wildest expectations. Our room was tastefully appointed with all the amenities one would expect from a 4-diamond resort. We dined in the restaurant and also did the Sunday brunch and both...

My husband and I stayed the night and attended the new Year party. It started out very disappointing. Even though we did not show up to check in until 5:00 PM we had to wait over an hour for a room. There were other couples that had been waiting for up to 3 hours. There were people with small kids...

This place has it all! Luxury, quality and service! Far beyond our expectations, and will return next time we travel to the area. The views are simply amazing. The beds are comfortable, the décor is modern, the rooms are specious.

The pluses: Guest rooms have been updated; a bit cookie cutter interior features, but fresh and current feeling. The "family" rooms are a good size and can sleep 4-5 comfortably. The tennis course are in excellent shape and lined for Pickleball --our family's game--and they have PB nets there for use --awesome. Room service breakfast was on time and excellent....

Good place for a quick getaway. We reserved an executive king suite. Rooms 1026 and 1028 were large and nicely furnished. The gym was one of the better hotel gyms we've been to. However, it could use improvement. 1. The heat in room 1028 didn't work. The fan blew cold air even though we turned the heat up to 78...

We had originally planned to stay there for 1 night. We ended staying an extra due to a mix up at our next hotel. After our 1 night stay, I checked in with the front desk the next day to see if it's possible to check in earlier since now we have another reservation for another night. She said there...

This Christmas my husband and I decided to go on a staycation rather than make the trek out to So Cal to spend Christmas with the family. This was to be a short much needed relaxing getaway with just the two of us and our 8 month old daughter. My first impression was that the grounds were well kept and...

I booked 2 nights at this "resort". The first night the heat in my room would work occasionally. I was not in the mood to change rooms in the middle of the night, so I put on a sweater and crawled in under the covers. Around 7am the next morning I walked to the lobby for breakfast and to report...

Dear Jr- Thanks for taking time to share your feedback.

Without getting into the details of the nightmare we lived at the local hospital, we initially chose the Chaminade because it was the closest to the hospital but once we actually drove up the beautiful drive to the property, we realized it was so much more than that. It was a retreat. It was peaceful and it offered us the...
