My wife and I stayed at Cheeca for the first time in about 25 years. We had remembered it as a very special upscale destination. Over the years we have read about the extensive renovations that were made and we're really looking forward to it. We had a room with an extra area for a pullout so it was very... More

To start, I have NEVER had a genuine complaint about a hotel, nor have I ever reviewed a hotel or other service on the internet, however, I thought our frustration with the experience we had during our anniversary stay at Cheeca Lodge and Spa warranted one. My wife and I have stayed at the Cheeca Lodge and Spa annually for... More

We stayed in the main building where the ocean front premium rooms are. The rooms are spectacular, great view of the ocean, spacious room with a fabulous bathroom with an outdoor tub that was very special ! Restaurant was great! Nice menu of steak and seafood.

Our room was extremely small and AC unit was "glued" to the bed so the cold air blows directly on the person sleeping on the right side of bed :( The beach and water are full of seaweed that nobody cleans... We were very disappointed :(

We are very sorry our resort did not meet your expectations; we are very disappointed about this as well. Our beach is surrounded by very shallow waters and our groundskeepers work diligently to clean up the seaweed on a daily basis. We are concerned about your experience here and would like to speak to you directly. Please call the Guest... More

If you want to be spoiled, then look no further. Champagne upon arrival, plush robes, hot tub on your private balcony, chocolate covered strawberries, mixed drinks that are SO delicious, amazing views, a spa and excellent customer service!

My husband and I went for a quick getaway which I think is perfect to stay at the Cheeca. I was however a bit disappointed how you cannot swim in the ocean. A) the water didn't look nice and B) when asked the front desk about swimming, she pointed me to the public beach. Growing up on Long Island, surrounded... More

We appreciate your feedback on our resort, and delighted that you enjoyed kayaking the quiet waters off our shores, the food in our restaurants, and our adults-only spa pool. It is also nice to hear that you found our main lodge to be pretty with a clean room that met your standards. Cheeca’s beach is typical of any beach in... More

The Cheeca resort is everything you want it to be. The staff were all very friendly and professional. We were greeted with smiles and good days by every person we encountered. The grounds are so lush and well tended, you feel like you are in a botanical garden. Romantically well lit at night for an evening stroll. The gatehouse added... More

I was so surprised to see negative reviews about this resort. Yes, they have went all corporate, but this is still a fantastic place to stay. I had a very late unexpected early check-in last night due to my previous hotel having a cockroach in the bathroom. I called the Cheeca and they were more than willing to accommodate (even... More

The hotel is beautiful, the people from housekeeping were very nice, but the smell of Clorox the day we got there it was too hard, i couldnt really sleep well, they need to be more careful about it.. The rooms are really nice and comfortable so we had s good time there.

Cheeca is a great getaway from Miami, but be aware the management and service is bad. We left items in the room accidentally when we checked out. It took 6 days, several unreturned calls to finally find out that our items were gone and could not be located. These things, although personal, are replaceable. But the inattentive nature of the...
