We only stayed at Chaminade one other time before this two night stay. Wow! They did some gorgeous remodeling of the property and grounds. It was an A experience all around! The price was a bit higher than other comparable hotels, but man, it is worth every penny! The staff are courteous and professional, the grounds are stunning, the views are gorgeous and will take your breath away. The room we stayed in was a double queen junior suite that was updated and very comfortable. The restaurant and lobby area look to have been remodeled recently as it was gorgeous and modern. The food at the restaurant is excellent. We ate two dinners and one breakfast there and all of it was delicious! They even had a movie night on Wednesdays that we could watch during dinner. So fun! The pool is heated and there is a hot tub. There are some lovely fire pits and a beach / sand area to do fun outdoor games. The hotel was a very wonderful family friendly experience overall. I highly recommend and would gladly pay the extra money to stay there again sometime. Worth the money!! :)

Absolutely loved the property and the amenities included like the gym and pickleball/tennis courts. Every staff member was wonderful, helpful, and friendly. The only thing that I would say that wasn't ideal, was that the room had a weird scent and wasn't as updated and clean as the rest of the property. Gym and staff were impeccable.
