“Loved it....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We looked at so many places in the Keys, and decided on this one. When we arrived, we loved the hammocks, the tikki huts and clean grounds. When we got our room... we were more than surprised. It was a suite, with two rooms, kitchen and a large living room with a private ocean front deck! It was so quiet there, the kids loved playing on the grounds. We really enjoyed our stay. The only downfall was that we only stayed one night.

Room Tip: Room 16... the best.

As others have noted this is an older place, but it is very well maintained. We had one of the ground level units with a patio facing the water. We were only there 2 days, as we were "trying out" different islands in the Florida Keys, but the time there was quiet and comfortable. The folks at the office were very helpful. The room was spacious and the kitchen appliances, dinnerware and utensils were nice to have. The outside areas with hammocks, grass roofed tables and pool areas were kept very clean. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ground floor room was very convenient

We stayed at the Drop Anchor on our first night in the Keys and were so relaxed we hated to leave. We had room 7 which directly overlooked the beach and was beautifully appointed and
welcoming. Attention to detail and guest comfort is evident throughout the complex. We noticed
a number of couples doing just what we were...relaxing on the beach at sunset. We loved the various tropical colors used on the exteriors of the units.....definitely made you feel like you were in
the Keys.

We were coming to the Keys to get away from the 8 feet of snow at home and wanted some rest and quiet. This turned out to be the perfect place for that. You hardly know anyone else was around because it seems all the guests were there to soak up the sun and enjoy the same peace and quiet that we needed. This is a great location for a day trip to Key West and near shopping and restaurants. A great old-time resort, well maintained and managed. Good for families, honeymooners first and second and a perfect get-away for some warm fun.

Classic old Florida resort – painted in pastel colors on the outside with snappy interior decoration on the inside. I stayed in #15 – a single story duplex that faced the ocean. The office staff offered very helpful recommendations regarding local restaurants and sights-to-see and went out of their way to make sure I enjoyed their part of the Keys. If you don’t want to drive the whole stretch of Keys in one day, be sure to stop in Islamorada – I stayed three days and enjoyed every minute before moving on to Key West.

We just returned from a three night stay at the Drop Anchor Resort, room 2. Everything was exactly as I had anticipated, with the exception of the view... which I don't think I could have imagined to be so beautiful! Our bed was very comfortable. Our bathroom was small, but functional (the shower was a decent size). Not too much bureau space if you are staying longer than we did. However, the location was incredible. The staff very friendly. And yes, we did get daily maid service for no extra charge. At times we felt that we had the entire place (beach included) all to ourselves-- despite the fact that they were at full occupancy! I highly recommend this establishment as a great base for your daily adventures!

Room Tip: Room 2 was in the perfect location to gaze over the water.
