We stayed at drop anchor on our honeymoon to the keys and were so pleased with our stay. The room and grounds are well maintained and the water view is fantastic. We had a cute little patio to sit in and enjoy coffee in the morning and it was nice and quiet. We plan on staying here again when we... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights. The grounds and the accommodations were immaculate. The pool was clean. The check in staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the trailer unit and found it too cozy for our comfort. Also, the furniture in the living area was uncomfortable and the queen/full bed had only about 5-6 inches... More

Best part of the property is its location and grounds. It's on the oceanfront with a large and beautiful sitting area with palapas. The perfect place to spend time doing nothing and watching birds and fish. Our suite (#12) was really large and comfortable, with two bedrooms, living room and full kitchen. Only bad point is that it had a... More

Thank you for your review.. We do pride ourselves in the up-keep of our resorts grounds. Yes room #12 is a very spacious two bedroom. All you've got to do is step out your front door onto our sandy beach. We look forward to accommodating you next time your travels bring you to the Islamorada area.. Regards More

The Drop Anchor Resort is an excellent place to stay when visiting the keys. We stayed here for a girls trip away and loved every minute of it. We stayed here during spring break in the two bedroom suite and though other reviewers mentioned noise from the road, we slept very well each night. The lady who works the front... More

My father and I used the Drop Anchor as our home base for a three day fishing trip to the middle keys. It was a perfect choice. The facility is older, but clean and well cared for. There are a couple of decent restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. A good value when compared to other hotels in the... More

Staff was very attentive to our needs and ready to assist in any way they could. Room was quite clean, albeit very tight with a full-sized bed. Nice pool by the ocean. The grounds were immaculate and very tastefully done. Short walk from all rooms to the water. Will definitely book this hotel again if we are in the Keys.

We were at the Drop Anchor for my sister's wedding. She had booked the entire place, so it was all family & friends there. Aside from the bright, beautiful colors, the buildings themselves look rather nondescript from outside, but every room we saw was beautiful on the inside. The beach was lovely, and staff cleaned and raked it every day... More

Appearances are deceiving - from the outside the rooms look dated, but inside they are finished to a high spec. Someone has a good eye for interior design! My only criticism of the rooms would be that the drawers and cupboard doors all seemed to be falling off!! Round the back is a lovely little private beach with hammocks and... More

We booked a one night stay at the Drop Anchor well in advance of our stay, after booking we started to wish we had booked 2 nights the write ups were just what we wanted. By the time we looked again to book another night it was full. On our arrival we could see why it was full and why... More
