My sister has always raved about this place, and I take her reviews seriously as she is a very traveled person. So when the opportunity came to visit the resort, I was excited to see what all the fuss was about. The location, the grounds, the rooms... all exquisitely appointed and meticulously manicured. But the staff and service left a... More

We just stayed here for 4 nights in mid August. We had booked a rate of 40% off that was available for booking in April- that made the stay economically worthwhile. The rooms are clean with good modern amenities. The sushi restaurant is quite good. The Tiki bar is nice. We went snorkeling from a boat that left from the... More

We stayed for five days and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cheeca! We were able to score a great deal on this hotel, which made it work with our budget. The rooms are very nice and clean - and the service staff does a great job checking on the rooms several times a day to make sure you have what... More

I have stayed at other 4 Diamond resorts and this is certainly NOT a 4 diamond resort. We stayed August 16-19, 2015. I found that there was trash and garbage all over the place (i.e. plastic cups, fruit pieces, napkins, etc.). I don't expect immediate cleaning, but I saw the same cups, food remnants, etc. laying around the pool and... More

We appreciate your observations about our resort, and while we make every effort to accommodate our guests who would like to check in before the official 4 p.m. check-in time, sometimes this is not possible and we are sorry for the inconvenience this caused you. We also try to upgrade our guests to ocean view rooms whenever we can, and... More

This place is lovely, but once you get past the surface veneer, things suffer. We are guests that are easy to please, so believe us when we say it's just not worth what you pay for. The 3 stars are for the beauty of the resort and the kind-- if disorganized-- staff. However, don't break the bank to stay here.... More

We have just left our 4 day trip from the Cheeca Lodge. Our trip was not as spectacular, as it has been in the past. We had many problems with the room we stayed in. When we first checked in our main television did not turn on. The tv remote was put together with tape. We called the office &... More

Looked at many hotels before booking this one. Was not sorry, the grounds are simply beautiful. Staff very professional and accommodating! So much to do, never had to leave. Thought the food was incredible, did eat out one night at the Islandmorada Fish Company, which was also very good. Have a 10 year old son, who never wanted to leave... More

The property is definitely beautiful. It's picturesque and relaxing. Unfortunately, the service is very, very slow. For our first lunch, it took longer than is really acceptable for all parts of the dining process, but it was the first moments of our vacation, so we were just looking to relax, so it wasn't a huge deal. The bartender at the... More

We only stayed here for 1 night as we were traveling from Key West to Miami. When you drive up through the jungle styled entrance to the hotel it is very inviting. The valet gives you a warm greeting and you immediately know that this is an upscale property. There is not a front counter per se, they have individual... More
