    Beautiful venue and great staff

    We loved our intimate wedding at Cheeca! The location on the beach was beautiful and the staff was great, especially Irena! The food was delicious at dinner and brunch-we got tons of compliments from guests staying at the resort for their overall experience. The location is really beautiful for photos!!

    Casitas Micro Wedding

    We got married at the Casitas at Cheeca Lodge and Spa with just 16 guests. It was truly a magical day! You cannot replicate the beauty of the property they have there-- with the enormous palm trees going all the way up to the water and the private exclusive beach. It was out of a magazine and all of our guests were blown away by the beauty of the day. Further, the food was phenomenal. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. It was pricey but completely worth it and I wouldn't change a thing!
