Before I started writing this review I read the latest ten or so. SERIOUSLY DID YOU STAY AT THE SAME PLACE I DID????? I think not....... The grounds are unbelievable. The main hotel is only 4 years old and quite wonderful. The out lying buildings I was told are older though. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The... More

As a Floridian, I've lived all over the state and traveled to the Keys many times. As a result, I'm very familiar with the spectrum of hotels and resorts throughout the state. Unfortunately, after staying at Cheeca for almost a week,at $300+ per night, despite it's superb location, I left without feeling it was a good bargain. Pros: Indeed the... More

registration was painless, and the champagne was a welcomed start to our girls get-a-way. We had a resort view room, the room was nice, the bathroom was way nice! The lanai was screened in and tucked away in a lovely lush landscape planting which gave you the feel of being up in a treehouse. The room was only stocked for... More

Oh, what a beautiful "Cheeca Lodge & Spa" setting right here Ocean front. Islamarada is comprised of six islands. Cheeca is surrounded by the Caribbean with 80 degree water.. It has two swimming pools, a snorkeling lagoon. When, not in the water, you can go fishing on the water, if you prefer not to get into a boat, you can... More

First of all, it must be said that Cheeca Lodge is a beautiful property in a beautiful town. Islamorada has some of the most stunning water in the entire Keys and Cheeca occupies some prime real estate on the bay side of the island. Sit for lunch and you will be delighted at the view, which is straight from a... More

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
