We stayed at the Cheeca resort for 3 nights at the end of June. We stayed in a suite overlooking the lagoon. The view was ok. The room was damp, I guess that's typical of the season. The mattress in the pullout sofa was very thin and uncomfortable. The front desk provided an additional mattress which helped. Parking was a... More

My Husband and I are presently staying here as I type this. We decided to stay for only one night, thank goodness, in order to go out on a fishing charter early in the morning. First, our room wasn't ready until after 4:00 p.m. We noticed there were many other guests who were also waiting for their rooms. We got... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Cheeca. Have stayed there before back in its hey day ( early 90's) when it was a true 5 star property. This time if it hadn't been for vacationing with great friends, the whole stay would have been awful. The room was pretty good, although the bed was very hard and the... More

I have never been to the Keys before and honestly....I truly had a different expectation. I think I expected more beaches but you live and learn. The Cheeca Lodge is a what seems to be a rose among a bunch of thorns. The property itself is very nice. We had an oceanview suite with a shower on the deck. At... More

Stayed just one night, Sunday-Monday, for my hubby's birthday. The story is too long to write, so I will list the problems we encountered. Bungalow ac did not work, after about 3 hours, numerous calls, a couple of different engineers, and quite a few calls to the front desk, we got a new bungalow. Moved our luggage and the car,... More

This hotel was very nice.... for the Keys. The Keys are very laid back and there are not a lot of high end places to stay. As with every review that I do, I am comparing each property with other properties that I have stayed, so take that into consideration. Our room was the Premier King, in the main building... More

Passed by the entrance to this place on the way to the Keys and it jarred my memory about how disappointed we were when we stayed here. We unfortunately stayed here when there was Company event and there were quite a few children running around, could not get a restaurant reservation and when we did service was bad.....Even the staff...

We stayed in a "premier island view suite", in July. The suite was 1 room, carpets were dirty and the "island view" was of the resort building rooftops, i.e. horrendous. The swimming pool is too small for the number of guests at the resort. Kayak rentals are limited to 45mins, to avoid people kayaking to any reasonable distance for snorkeling.... More

Although my husband and I have been to Key West many times (whether a quick drive straight there, by cruise ship or by plane), this was the first time we were going to take our time by exploring all the nooks and crannies along the way. This was definitely our favorite place we stayed on the whole trip. As soon... More

The "Queen of the Florida Keys", Cheeca Lodge & Spa, an exclusive hideaway for generations of celebrities, business leaders and U.S. Presidents. Set on 27 private oceanfront acres in Islamorada, Cheeca – reopening Dec. 15 - is has been constructed with its original porte-cochere entrance, traditional Florida Keys architecture, chic West Indies décor, and spirited tradition of “barefoot elegance” -- a term coined at Cheeca – all intact. Along with a new Lobby Bar. Cheeca will boast two distinctive restaurants - Nikai Sushi Bar offering the Florida Keys’ freshest sushi, Asian-inspired fare and a unique selection of Japanese sake and wine, and Atlantic’s Edge with a seasonal fine-dining menu of fresh local seafood, prime steaks and organic local produce. The new Cheeca Lodge & Spa will also feature 2,400 square-feet of new retail shops with a Cheeca Signature store featuring Tommy Bahama products. An expanded roster of activities will include on-property flats boats with seasoned local guides for backcountry fishing, sightseeing, eco-tours, kiteboarding, and a junior angler program for teens.The resort’s signature features – classic 525’ wooden fishing pier, tropical gardens, crossing palms archway, saltwater snorkeling lagoon, nature trails, Tahitian-style Spa Lagoon, spectacular purple sunsets, secluded white sand beaches, Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, Camp Cheeca children’s environmental activity program, and access to world-class sportfishing – will remain intact.Located just 90 minutes south of Miami International Airport in the Florida Keys, Cheeca Lodge & Spa is just a few hours by air or drive from major East Coast U.S. and Canadian cities. ... more   less
