My husband and I went to the Cheeca Lodge to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Usually they require a 2 night stay, but the hotel was gracious enough to allow a one night stay! When we arrived, the "valet" (JJ) greeted us, got us a mimosa :) and gave us a tour of the immediate property; she was a treat and a wealth of information. We registered with Jennifer who was also a winner in the personality department- a true professional and a sweetheart; she treated us like VIPs!
Our room was a premier king that overlooked the golf course with the bay in the distance; we watched a beautiful sunset while we enjoyed our "happy anniversary" bottle of champagne(compliments of Cheeca) . The room was well appointed & comfortable. The bathroom was very cool...and there is a suprise on the balcony.
the grounds are meticulous, the tiki bar and bartenders great fun (I wanted to bring them home-the drinks were fab) and a walk down the pier to view the 100's of fish, sting rays and manatees was awesome.We also swam in the adults only pool, located by the spa.
Dinner in the dining room was delicious (I had apricot glazed grilled mahi and my hubby had seafood pasta); our waiter (Bryan-great guy) brought out a dessert plate with truffles, brownies, chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate chip cookies; he wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate.
All in all a beautiful celebration that was romantic & relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff-all so very professional and friendly, they made sure that everything was perfect-and it truly was. We can't wait to return...
thanks Cheeca Lodge for a memorable time.
