I'm sad to be returning from a wonderful 5 night stay at Cheeca. Everything was wonderful, especially the service and the helpful staff. Orlando, one of the managers, was attentive, going above and beyond to be sure we were treated well. Marcus, our beach attendant, was always on the ball, anticipating our needs (and eventually learning that the blueberry mojito... More

My annual visit to Islamorada always include a stay at Cheeca Lodge. It is by far an excellent resort to stay in and always has been In the PAST that is. This year's visit was less than stellar. Starting with the Stench emanating from the Tiki bar. Depending on where your seat was, hopefully you had an option of up... More

Location is really important in the Keys if you are time sensitive-just 2 hrs south of Miami and just below Key Largo. If you like lodges then you will like Cheeka which is steeped in tradition and dark wood panelling . It does give you a tropical Pacific feel of Hawaii. The most important thing about Cheeka Lodge is your... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Cheeca Lodge during our holiday in Florida. We felt that some areas of the hotel and our room needed some updating and minor redecoration. Having said that, the room was very comfortable. We stayed here for 3 nights but didn't eat at the hotel. My husband wanted a drink one evening but had... More

Nested in the upper middle keys, approximately a couple of hours south of Miami, yet not too far south to be a deterrent as overly commercialized Key West, Islamorada is the perfect 2 hour drive to transport you to another world away from the bustle of Miami and its surroundings. As you drive away 30 to 40 min from Miami,... More

This was once a first class place to stay. But it needs refreshing. I stayed in the building closest to the guardhouse at the entrance. I was awakened the first night by the couple in the room next to me. I could hear everything they said coming between the door that joined the two rooms. I would avoid such room... More
