Booked a room at the Cheeca Lodge for a 4 day, 3 night getaway. In many trips to the Keys, I was always curious about the Cheeca, but had not stopped in. It is a much easier drive from the South Florida airports than the Middle or Lower Keys; About 100 miles from Ft Lauderdale in my case. Check-in was... More

I had heard so much about this resort (great things) we decided to go for my birthday for two nights. Check in was very nice, room was nice. The sushi bar/chef was great. The second night we went to the restaurant and he called ahead to say it was my birthday and would they do alittle something. They said yes.... More

Just stayed at the Cheeca for a small reunion with friends. Place is beautiful. Staff is wonderful but they are shortstaffed and it was obvious to all guests. There was a large wedding during stay and no additional staff was brought on. Exercise classes are great. Roma is a fantastic yoga instructor. Jill is a great trainer. Did not have... More

High points: - We had booked the trip with a Groupon so let me begin by saying my expectations for the room itself were low. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the immaculately clean and large room (which was more like a one bedroom apartment). The bathroom was very large and had a shower and a separate tub, as well... More

We just returned from Cheeca and were so sad to leave! We spent our honeymoon there and will definitely be returning. We chose a room in the main lodge with a tub on the balcony. It was amazing! From the time we arrived and were handed a glass of champaigne to the time we left if we didn't want to... More

It is just a nice and clean place to relax with your family. Good service and that is why we now switched from Tranquility bay in Marathon.

My husband and I spent four days here during a two week holiday to visit family. We stayed in a beach bungalow. We were initially put in a bungalow next to the family swimming pool and the lagoon. We asked to be moved since it doesn't make sense to stay in adults only accommodation next to children areas! Luckily we... More

We stayed in the main lodge. Our room was the Premier room, huge and everything was nicely decorated and clean. We rented a boat from Robbies and the staff at Cheeca were great about telling us where to take our kids snorkeling. The kids fished off of the dock and saw a manatee, caught snapper and even caught a nurse... More

We stayed in different rooms while staying at the resort and were really impressed with the lodge rooms. If you enjoy feeling away from the world, get the suites away from the lodge. The rooms are dated but the lodge rooms are new. I was slightly disappointed there was not a sand beach for swimming but you can jump off... More

We stayed at the Cheeca Lodge & Spa as a romantic getaway. Our room was glorious, plush, and left us wanting for nothing. We most enjoyed the soaking tub on the balcony which filled from the ceiling. We sat out there in the evening listening to the ocean. The grounds are lovely as well and the staff were quite accommodating.... More
