We had a 2-night stay at Cheeca Lodge in room 717. It is what they call a "Luxury Resort View One-Bedroom Suite" and is on the 3rd (top) floor of one of the buildings.
We really liked this room. It has a kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, 2-burner stovetop, microwave, and dishwasher. (Note that it doesn't have a conventional oven.) The sitting room is a comfortable size with a sofa and flat-screen TV. The bedroom has a king bed - we slept 12 hours the first night here, so the bed is pretty comfortable. The room also has a HUGE bathroom that actually has 3 rooms to it: one for the toilet, a second for a sink/vanity with a good amount of counter space, and a third room for the shower (with a selection of shower heads), separate deep soaking tub, and another sink/vanity.
The screened balcony was a favorite place for us to sit. We felt that we were in a rain forest, with the large trees right outside the balcony providing some privacy.
Parking for the building is covered, and the building has an elevator.
I wish we'd had a longer time to use the beach - it is lovely. Even though they said that they were booked solid, it seemed quiet to us - the most activity was at the tiki bar (which has excellent margaritas).
It's also in a nice mid-point location in the Keys .We'd love to come back here.
