My husband and I stayed here on September 17th for our one year wedding anniversary. It is hard to put into words how much my husband and I love this hotel. Yes, it is a beautiful hotel. Yes, the grounds are magnificent as is the ocean view. Yes, the food at the restaurants on the hotel is top notch. The reason however that this hotel stands apart from any other 5 star hotel that I have stayed, at are the employees.I have to mention the front desk check in girls (particularly Brooke) whom upon finding out that is was our one year anniversary, ordered a champagne toast for us and Lisa the friendly, sweet and professional waitress at Limencello Restaurant. And finally, I have to give thanks to Gabriel, the restaurant manager. My husband called him weeks before and wanted to surprise me with red velvet cake. I found out later that Gabriel called local bakeries and outsourced the cake and had it delivered. The reason that Cheeca lodge stands out in my mind isn't the beauty of the hotel, but the inner beauty of the employees. We LOVE this hotel and I'm always sad when I have to leave! Make this your next vacation for a special occasion or a weekend getaway. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Cheeca!!
