Love the location of this hotel and the trails. There are so many things to do and it’s location is beautiful and feel so peaceful and isolated, but is close to the beach and shops.

Stay at Paradox in Santa Cruz instead
Chaminade is not a 4 star hotel. I usually stay at Paradox but was curious about Chaminade so stayed 2n on a family trip but left feeling less than great about the experience. Pros: above average size room. Cons: did not get my Gold Exclusive free beverage; parking was extremely limited and tight (we got door dinged); food at the hotel restaurant had VERY small portions ($20 for a steak salad that could fit into a happy meal box) for the pricey cost (plus 20%+ service and $10 delivery on top of $37 daily resort fee); heated pool was cold. The location is secluded, which was initially an attraction; but when you can't get a table at the restaurant and there's no cell signal, food service at hotel is limited and expensive and there's no outside restaurant nearby, then the seclusion becomes a liability. Going back to Paradox.

NOT worth it
It was not that nice, the decor was random , bed is Uncomfortable and there is nothing special at all about this place and the price is way over for its amenities that do not exist. There are so many more nicer and less expensive places to stay....price increase upon our stay after we were guaranteed another price.
