The "Queen of the Florida Keys", Cheeca Lodge & Spa has been an exclusive hideaway for celebrities, business leaders and U.S. Presidents for over 70 years. Set on 27 private oceanfront acres in Islamorada, Cheeca has been constructed with a porte-cochere entrance, traditional Florida Keys architecture, chic West Indies décor, and spirited tradition of “barefoot elegance” -- a term coined at Cheeca. Along with a Coffee Bar & Breakfast Bistro as well as a top-shelf lobby bar, Cheeca boasts three distinctive restaurants: Nikai Sushi Bar and Restaurant offering the Florida Keys’ freshest sushi, Asian-inspired fare and a unique selection of Japanese sake and wine; Atlantic’s Edge, Cheeca’s flagship restaurant offering seasonal fine-dining menu of fresh local seafood, prime steaks and organic local produce; and its brand new family-friendly Mia Cucina restaurant transporting Naples, Italy into the heart of Islamorada serving up made to order artisan pizzas, pastas and salads in a live

My son used this resort as the location for his wedding! A great choice! The entire area catered to their clientele and their wishes! Hope to be able to return with my wife and spend some time there alone.

Hotel's Favourite
Cheeca Lodge - the name is a bit, actually a lot deceiving!! It’s hardly a lodge - it’s a 5 star resort. The grounds are magnificent, the rooms are lovely, and the service was perfect with friendly staff. The food is excellent - no reason to eat anywhere else.

This was my first stay to Cheeca Lodge and I must say I enjoy every minute of it. The service we received at the pool was definitely First Class! I wanted to take the time to recognize Alexis for his kindness, and professionalism in serving me and my family throughout our stay.

My absolute favorite place! Stunningly gorgeous! I’ve traveled most of the Caribbean, and this is so well done. From the landscaping, to the beautiful rooms, the beach, the pools, the stunningly lit pathways at night, the hidden hot tub, the friendliness of the staff, AMAZING!!

We were looking forward to returning to Cheeca Lodge. We remembered it as a 5* resort but sadly it is now barely a 3*. On arrival no-one offered to show us to our room or assist us up stairs with our cases (my husband and I are seniors). The room was very disappointing. We

Dear angelaj913, We’re extremely disheartened to learn you left disappointed, but we appreciate the time you took to provide us with your feedback. All of our rooms have been remodeled and refreshed so we’re saddened to learn you found them to be dated. While we’re glad our team members were responsive to the issues you noted, we’re disappointed that we fell so short of delivering the service and experience our guests have come to know for generations. We will share your valued feedback with our entire team so we may continue to enhance our guest experience.

Hi Michael T. We do have a 525-ft. pier, but there is a fee for overnight docking. We do not have a launch ramp but there are several nearby. We do have parking available for small boats that can be arranged. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Our direct line is 800.327.2888 if you prefer to speak with someone directly. We hope to see you soon.

HI Karen D, We offer limited dog-friendly accommodations, and our pet policy is outlined under the FAQ section of our website. Please note dogs are limited to specific outdoor areas on property and are only permitted to stay in Golf View Double Queen Rooms and Golf View 1-Bedroom Suites, based on availability at time of booking. We give 10% of our $70 per night pet fees to a local non-kill shelter, MarrVelous Pet Rescues, every month. Our reservations team will be happy to assist you. They can be reached at 800.327.2888. Thanks!

Hi John T., We just have fishing rods that guests use to fish off the pier, and no tackle so if you are a serious fisherman, I would suggest you bring your own gear. To avoid a rental car, you may use a ride service. Our concierge can arrange one for you if you like. Their direct line is 305.517.4505. The most economical transportation would be Florida Keys Shuttle which is a shared ride service (305) 289-9997. Please let us know if you need any additional information. We look forward to welcoming you to Cheeca.

Yes there is seaweed but not overwhelming by any means. We did not notice any smell outside your normal “beach smell” in the gulf. They are in the middle of adding a new pool area but no active construction with noises. We hardly noticed it was even there. Overall, great resort.

"Great beautiful property, lovely sun rise from the rooms."
"really overall not worth it..... go to Hawks Cay worth extra drive so much better..."
"Ask for bungalow for close to water"
"Try to get an ocean view"
"Definitly splurge on an ocean view with circular bathtub on the balcony, you can read a book and hear the spashing of the Ocean below!"
