Granted, one must expect the holiday rate to be exorbitant. Nonetheless, we were not impressed with Cheeca Lodge. On the positive side, my wife did compliment the spa. The valet, restaurant servers and one of the concierge (the other was useless) were all pleasant and professional. The grounds are well kept. The front desk ladies, even with the free champagne,...

We are big fans of the Cheeca Lodge, and we recently went back to celebrate our son's birthday. Each staff member we dealt with went way beyond to help make our son's birthday stay extra special. It is amazing how far the little extras go in the heart of an 8 year old and the rest of our family! While... More

My wife and I had a tremendous time here at Cheeca Lodge. We are packing up our stuff now and I had to take a minute to rave about our experience.

Great for all generations, plenty to keep everyone busy or relaxing and everything in between. We come every year to relax and enjoy all this island has to offer. We used to go to Key West but since we have a family Islamorada is best suited for families,

We got upgraded to an OceanFront suite, that was bigger and more glorious than my first apartment. Everything about the resort was immaculate and amazing. Loved the bartenders at the beach bar, they made delish margaritas and blueberry mojitos. everyone was polite and helpful at the resort, whenever needed, and felt like we were in the caribbean.

We have been here twice in the past three years, and very much enjoy this resort. Stayed in the lodge (didn't have an ocean view, but nice room).

A great hotel choice for us. Limoncello restaurant has gluten free pizzas and pasta. A real bonus for our daughter who is gluten sensitive. Not all the restaurants at the hotel seemed to offer as many options. Great setting overlooking the ocean although the hotel bar is near to the restaurant and was noisy. Service couldn't have been better though.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights this past week. We always had heard that the Cheeca Lodge was a premier luxury property. What we encountered was the complete opposite.

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. Along with a new Lobby Bar. 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
