Chesapeake Beach Resort
Address: 83409 Overseas Hwy, at MM 83.5
This 65-room, 6.5-acre resort renovated in February 2009 blends Florida Keys charm with a beachfront resort feel, successfully walking the fine line to come off as cozy versus cramped. There's plenty of tropical décor on the property like seashell-lined walls, tiki huts, and fountains. There's also a tennis court, outdoor fitness center, two pools, laundry services, a marina, and plenty of room options, from romantic beachfront balconies to family-friendly two-bedrooms. Although you won't find any restaurants on the premises, the owners rolled out a room service program in summer 2009 with neighboring Wahoos Bar and Grill.
