My wife and I spent our 5th anniversary at this resort. What I liked most about it was that we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. There was no loud music and no craziness if you know what I mean. You could sit in the Tiki Bar and hear each other talk. The different restaurants were very pleasant with... More

This was a fantastic place to stay. Earl at the front gate was so welcoming telling us we were in for a "treat". He was right. Racheal at the tiki bar can make the best cocktails every time and she keeps the atmosphere fun and relaxing. What a beautiful view every where you look. So much fun. I'm ready to... More

Great resort hotel on the paradise island of Islamorada. This is a great place for families but also couples. The fishing pier is great fun and the water sports facilities are great. There is even a small golf course.

Loved the bungalow layout and the tropical landscaping with hidden grottos and paths thru the foliage! Well-appointed room, quiet at night, good food on an ocean-facing terrace. Saw bio-luminescent jellies swimming under the pier. Sunrise was breath-taking! We biked in from Key Largo, but the staff didn't bat an eye at our biker gear and needs.

Earl at the gate deserves a raise - he is an outstanding ambassador for Cheeca Lodge! The lobster grilled cheese was to die for, and the champagne welcome a nice touch. On the down side, the $40 resort fee seems unnecessary when you are spending $400-plus for a room. Most of the activities are fee based (like $10 for yoga)... More

Cheeca Lodge is dreamy. Positives: We stayed in an ocean front room in the newer building and it was spectacular. Very "Tommy Bahama" in decor, beautiful water view, loved the outdoor tub, comfy bed, and it was nice to have a fridge to keep soda, snacks, and your dinner leftovers. Common areas were always being cleaned. The beach is spectacular,... More

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.

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
