“Pretty Nice”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Stayed two nights mid week. Nicely landscaped. Check in was good and staff friendly but no offer of or assistance with getting bags to room. Were on second floor and no elevator so wife had to drag all bags up the stairs. Just kidding, I helped. Room was nice and average size. Two full size beds. Comfortable and a good nights sleep. Two of the lamps in the room not plugged in because of lack of electrical outlets. The patio/balcony was screened but had a few small tears in the screen, However, we had no problem with bugs. The noise on the balcony from the highway was awful and made setting there not enjoyable at all. I would suggest a room farther back from the highway next time or even spring for a beachfront. At night with the doors closed the noise was not so bad but was still there.
The room was nice and clean and comfortable with a safe, small fridge and coffee maker. The air unit was located above the front door. There was not a separate thermostat so you needed to be either really tall or have long arms to make adjustments to the temperature.
Nice beach ocean area and pools. Nice relaxing places to just set and chill. There is no bar on site so bring own booze.
Continental breakfast was pretty good but may have to wait just a few if they need to replenish items. Over all a good stay. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Get room back away from the highway

I call the Chesapeake Beach Resort my personal paradise. This is the place I return to, to connect to nature and to my soul. This year I am back for 2 weeks and I am enjoying every day. Included in the price of the room they supply kajaks, and a hobiecat, which I am taking out for a sail today. I am writing this review as I am sitting on my balcony enjoying the view of the lagoon and the ocean. Love to swim in the lagoon. I have been coming to the Keys for close to 30 years and this is the best there is. I recommend it to anyone that wants to relax, reenergize and connect to nature.

Room Tip: This year I am staying in 602

We had so much fun relaxing in this peaceful setting. My grandchildren said they were having the best time of their lives, kayaking, barbecuing on the beach overlooking the magnificent sunset, swimming in the heated pools at night and just enjoying the peace and quiet. A great getaway!

We booked this hotel last minute after deciding to join friends on a long weekend trip to Islamorada. Having booked earlier, our friends secured a hotel room, but we were left with only two choices, one being a "villa." The room was very spacious, similar to a standalone bungalow, with a full kitchen, large open living space, and ocean views. The bed was very comfortable, kitchen was clean with a full-size fridge. The bathroom was small, but functional, although the staff was unable to resolve the problem of a slow draining drain in the tub. It was updated to some extent, but the door definitely needed to be painted or replaced. We also didn't have housekeeping service for two days, but when they finally serviced the room, they did a fantastic job. (we had plenty of towels for the two of us despite this) The breakfast room is small and cramped as mentioned in previous reviews, but there is an outdoor patio where we ate every day, with a lovely view of the ocean. The breakfast is ok, is included in the resort fee, and was tended diligently by the staff. The pool we used is a bit "tired" looking, and could use a thorough scrubbing/rehab of the tiles. Having said that the water was clear, clean, and warm. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and very well maintained. Lounge chairs, hammocks, and beach chairs abound and are positioned to allow guests to enjoy the views of the ocean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you want an upscale, lush, lodging experience, try the Cheeca Lodge, the Marriott or Hyatt in Key Largo, or one of the resorts in Key West. But for families with kids, folks on a fishing trip, or a couple days stop in a quiet location after a cruise, this is fine.

Many folks travel to the keys,in Florida....seems like everyone describes their time there,as slow and easy,but,don't always describe the place they choose to stay at, with the same affection. When you stay, you truly want your surroundings to have a calming effected, on your fast paced life. We loved key west, lots to do and see, but, we were always on the go.....it was a little too pricey to do things slowly. So, this time, we chose Chesapeake Resort, on the village of islands known as Islamorada. It has been a glorious experience. As soon as you drive up to register at the front office, you strangely get a chance to exhale a little...It's just as described, and the folks in charge welcome you with open arms....almost in respite. The registration is quick, the details are clear, and your rooms are close by....It's a small resort, with the experience of a big resort. The staff are very friendly, the grounds are immaculate, and the breakfast is more than we expected. So many things to see and do from this location, or, just veg, in the pools, the hot tub, or the seaside beach. The natural beach is exactly that, a seaside beach, but, the elevated beach is pristine, and is power raked every night. The rake designs are kinda neat to wake up to. There are no onsite restaurants,but, the place is kid friendly, and the free parking is first come...some is covered, some is open. There are 63 units in this resort...you kinda meet folks pretty quickly. So, the real question IS....would we come back?....you bet. It's clean, it sparkles, it shines, and we like that!!

Room Tip: Seaside rooms overlooking the water are premium priced, but, well worth it.

We got an oceanview room and weren't disappointed! The morning sunrise was spectacular. The staff is busy and pleasant. The room is large, comfortable, and clean. I mark it down primarily because of the towels. They feel like they've been dragged through the sand with the large rake that they use to groom the shore in the morning! Ugh! Also, the breakfast is just so-so but it's hot and includes a lot of variety.

Stayed for 5 night last week--Feb 15-20. We had a ocean view king--It was great. Awesome view off of the patio was so relaxing--both for coffee in the morning and a drink in the evening. They said it was sold out, however it seemed as if no one was around??? The lady who served breakfast was a little grumpy but other that that, we had no problems at all.
So many great restaurants in the area--Lazy Days, Green Turtle Inn, Island Grill just to name a few.
I will be staying again and would recommend to my friends.
