All I can say is WOW. I attended a wedding this past weekend here and it was truly a magical experience. I have never been somewhere so beautiful and relaxing in my life! My fiancé and I had never been to Islamorada so we weren't sure what to expect but this blew our expectations out of the water. Upon checking in we were unfortunately given the wrong room that was originally booked. After letting the staff know this they went above and beyond on accommodating us. Giving us free meals and drinks as well as discounts on our room which was so unexpected. The staff here are very accommodating and professional especially Jean Chery. I would definitely consider the Cheeca Lodge a top venue to hold your wedding! Allison from The Golden Pineapple Event Company did an amazing job coordinating the wedding with Checca Lodge. With this being the first wedding I have ever been in I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of ANYTHING lol but Allison had everything planned to a t. Making sure everyone was OK, even fed and hydrated. I had such an amazing experience at the Check Lodge. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed our experience so much we will definitely be back again!Sent on 06/11/2018

We just got married here on the beach August 13. I've been speaking with their wedding coordinator, Annaleigh for about a year now planning everything and I must say, everything was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT here. Every single one of the staff members was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were amazing, especially our suite with the tub on the balcony. This is a 5 star + resort and we want to go back every year! Even our 4 year old kids won't stop talking about the hotel. Top notch service, especially from Annaleigh. We cant to make an annual trip here---Could not have had a better wedding experience anywhere else.Sent on 08/21/2014

When I started planning my small destination wedding, I was drawn to Cheeca Lodge because it was absolutely gorgeous. In the end, I don't think we saved any money by doing the small destination wedding but we got a great family vacation and the best wedding ever! The wedding coordinator for Cheeca, Annaleigh, was absolutely wonderful. I met her once and the rest of our communication was mostly through email. She helped me and my dad (who was just as involved as I was) with any question we ever had. She made me feel so special, emailed back quickly, and set my mind at ease when I was feeling stressed. The day of the wedding was perfect, she was around the whole day and literally my wedding was everything I could imagine and more. The referrals she gives for hair, flowers, cake, music were all excellent as well. Cheeca was a beautiful place to get married, if you're big into pictures like I was you will not find a better place for your wedding pictures! We got married right on the sand and had our reception inside (due to rain) and it was great. The food was excellent and the staff were all so friendly. Definitely recommend Cheeca Lodge to anyone looking for a place to get married in the Keys!Sent on 08/26/2014
