We stayed at the Cheeca Lodge over April vacation for 4 nights. It was a very nice place with beautiful grounds, nice pools, tennis, golf and a fishing pier. We stayed in a 1 bed king suite with a resort view. The unit was on the third floor with both stairs and an elevator and parking below the unit. There... More

Being world travelers we have never been to the Keys so we figured with our busy schedules (80+ hour work weeks) why not take our plane down to the Keys. The staff at Marathon airport were very helpful and the rental car was waiting. We drove about 30 miles to this resort and checked in. I had researched this resort... More

Overpriced for what it is. No beach to speak of. Realistically a motel. Service is quite good to be fair.

We were struggling to find upscale lodging for our family trip to the Keys for spring break, as most of the top end places are allergic to under 16's. The Cheeca is what it is - a good, middle ranking resort for families (and maybe a top end spa for adults - can't comment). We enjoyed many of the facilities:... More

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
