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

Getting here isn't that exciting but as soon as you enter the gated resort all your troubles will melt away. Check in included a glass of champagne and personalized service, the valet greets you by name.... the grounds are BEAUTIFUL! Take advantage of everything that is included in your resort fees because things add up quickly. The restaurants are wonderful... More

So, we booked through Priceline and the resort must give the worst rooms to people who book through third party sites. Even though we paid what the asking price was, no corners cut. I expected Amazing and got left with OMG. The room was infested with ants, and obviously I'm not the only one to experience this. I read some... More

Just returned home from six days at Cheeca Lodge. It is by far THE BEST option in Islamorada. Easy to find, great amenities, beautiful grounds, great service. We loved the pool area and the kayak and paddleboarding. The biggest drawback about Key West is the lack of beaches, but staying at Cheeca totally makes up for it. The fishing pier... More

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
