I call the Chesapeake Beach Resort my personal paradise. This is the place I return to, to connect to nature and to my soul. This year I am back for 2 weeks and I am enjoying every day. Included in the price of the room they supply kajaks, and a hobiecat, which I am taking out for a sail today. I am writing this review as I am sitting on my balcony enjoying the view of the lagoon and the ocean. Love to swim in the lagoon. I have been coming to the Keys for close to 30 years and this is the best there is. I recommend it to anyone that wants to relax, reenergize and connect to nature.
We checked in early afternoon into a garden view room. This was our home base for a two-day fishing trip, so we weren't looking for an ocean view room. It was clean, functional, close to restaurants and next door to our charter boat's dock. For our purposes it was good value for the money.
Check in was friendly. Room was very nice. We enjoyed kayaking on the beach and the grounds surrounding hotel were nice & well kept. We used one of the pools, enjoyed the breakfast and had a great dinner experience at the Lorelei and the Green Turtle both of which were nearby. Went for a nice bike ride on the island as well. Great experience all around. We will be back.
The Resort is Awesome. Fish and snorkle right in front of the Resort. There are no real beaches in the Keys. It's mostly rock. We like laid back relaxing places.
And that's what you get at the Chesapeake. The views are so beautiful. There are hammocks and lounges everywhere. Great places to eat within walking distance. Or get in the car and drive in either direction 5 minutes. 2 wonderful pools. The people who are giving this place bad reviews are rich snobs who need to stay elsewhere anyway. Great little resort in the Keys!!!
For the past couple years me and my fiance have been traveling to Islamorada and we always stay here. It is very peaceful, nice pools and a beautiful relaxing view. the location is fantastic Whale harbor has great food. Brazalaina great food and good price for all you can eat. Also The Seafood buffet was delicious. and in walking distance from the hotel!
We pulled into Islamorada for a surprise fishing trip for our turning-21 son. Chesapeake rep, Will welcomed us back and made sure our room rate reflected all discounts. After fishing all day 20 miles out in the Atlantic, Will suggested we stop back - even after we'd checked out - to wash up. He had towels awaiting. Nice oceanfront hotel with small town friendly service.
It was an awesome vacation. We consisted of two adults and two teenagers. I can not say enough about the grounds of the Resort. They were amazing! It's a great location right on the water with plenty to do. There is a restaurant next door and plenty to see and do in the area. The breakfast was good, just enough. The staff was friendly. We are definitely planning on going back in the Fall.
I stayed here during a trying time for the locals, Bartenders Bash, but we all loved our stay at the Chesapeake. My wife and I shared a villa with a friend and everything was clean and working properly. 24 hour security patrolling around was good too since we locked our key in the room late one night. You could tell the front desk ppl were uneasy with us staying there, I guess fearing we would be belligerent drunks. Regardless of the nervousness everything went smoothly, we enjoyed the outdoor BBQ area and the hammocks. I would def stay here again.
Loved, loved it. All the employees were friendly, extremely helpful...I needed AA batteries, went to the front counter...the lady offered me two batteries. They were so helpful with directions, activity ideas around the keys, etc. Free kayak use, bike use, paddleboats. Right on the ocean. Beautiful ocean breezes and plenty of sunshine. We were here from wed-Monday. Wed. to Friday we felt like we were all by ourselves...then Friday night, a bunch of people came in, but there were a couple weddings going on at the hotel next door, so we figured it was over flow from there. Breakfast was great out on the beach every morning, until the crowd moved in on the weekend, but nothing the hotel could do about that....Saw lots of lizards, up to 4 feet long. They don't bother anyone. Fun and entertaining to watch. One morning a manatee cow and calf showed up in our lagoon. Lots of fish, a few resident crabs. Lots of chairs and little islands to lay out and enjoy the sunshine. A wonderful pool and hot tub. Everything is clean, reminded me of old Florida, but kept in great shape. Every room has a good view. We stayed in one of the villas, wasn't supposed to be an ocean view, but we could see the ocean right out our front door...from our screened porch. Very quiet here, peaceful, great facility, restaurants within walking distance.
We came upon this hotel when we thought we'd run out of luck as 4 othr hotels we had called at were ful. (Turned out to be a holiday weekend!) The room we had was on the 2nd floor and, though it didn't look over the bay, it had a great view over the gardens. It was clean and cool.
As with most hotels in Florida it did not serve evening meals but right next door there was a Brazilian Steak restaurant and a buffet fish restaurant. (We went for the fish one which, though very busy with families, managed to fit us in for a lovely meal.
There were also a couple of swimming pools and tennis courts for the energetic.
Breakfast was served at the hotel and was more than adequate.
Avery pleasant place to stay on our way to Key West.
