I liked the quiet condo style. No bar at the pool. It wasn't the main pool, I guess each complex has a pool. Mine was quiet and reserved. I like it a lot and then i'd go to the Holiday Inn bar with music all day!. Rented bikes and layed in the sun, fitting for a nice quiet time.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for choosing Drop Anchor on your most recent stay! We are excited to hear you have enjoyed our property and its offerings. On top of the pool being right on the water and the sea breeze plays a dominating factor with that, we have had an extremely chilly last month which may affect the quality of this amenity as well. I will look into other options to have this area improved. We appreciate your time and letting us know of this area of improvement. We hope to see you soon! Best Regards, Zac Tranten General Manager

I was driving to Key West but the Miami traffic wore me out, so I decided to stop. Looked on line at The Drop Anchor reviews. Was pleasantly surprised by what a cute little place this was. My room was very clean and comfortable. I did not have a view (unit #1) , but that was

Happy thanksgiving!! There is a ramp and a fishing pier that is long enough for a 24’ boat but you might want to contact the owner - nice guy-to see how long you can tie up- fishing charters leave from there in small bay boats so there might be not enough pier for everyone. There is a marina a very short distance away. They might have slip rentals? Sounds like a great trip!!
