I stayed at Cheeca Lodge over the past weekend. Let me say that the people working on the grounds of the hotel are doing a great job. When you drive up you are stopped at a guard station and they check to make sure your on the list. You then drive up to the main building for registration. When I... More

I've stayed in Cheeca Lodge 3 days for a company seminar. Before going I looked at pictures on the website: the place is smaller and not as beautiful as pictures make you think. Yet this is a really nice place to stay a couple of days. I don't recommend staying 1 night or 1 full week. First because you won't... More

I was concerned about staying here after reading some of the reviews. But like a good book or movie you can't always rely on the critics. Cheeca is a gem among the schlock surrounding it. Don't get me wrong I love keys kitsch but I don't want to sleep in it. Cheeca was clean, the staff was always helpful and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Cheeca several times over the last 30 years. I once took 25 guests there for a long weekend so I am familiar with resort. We recently stayed there for a week and we were saddened by the lack of effort and pride that once made this a great place to stay. The... More

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

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.

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
