Just like the web site looks, only better in person. What you see on their web site is only pictures. This place absolutely wonderful. The rooms sit right on the Atlantic ocean. The property is just beautiful. Our room might have had a small bathroom, but everything else was terrific. Very comfortable beds, big screen TV, a great A/C unit,... More

My family stayed at Drop Anchor for two nights and the place was perfect and the staff was very nice and accommodating, even for our last minute booking. I really appreciate the great customer service and spot on advice they provided as far as restaurants and shopping. They went above and beyond to help us out and we will always... More

This was our first stop on our Florida vacation. Picked up our rental at the airport and drove down to Islamorada which is just past Key Largo. Steve and his dog Lady greeted us when we arrived and gave us our key to 14B. He said our room was small and he wasn't kidding. The comfy queen sized bed takes... More

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to review our Resort. Room 14-B is the smallest room on our property. It is very quaint as well. I must agree with you on the toiler situation though. We do take enormous pride into maintaining our Resort in tip top shape. I will pass along your words of... More

If you plan on staying in Islamorada the Drop Anchor is a good choice. It seems that most of the resorts are all within a mile or so of eachother so getting the best price on a nice place to stay is really your main goal. It's not the Ritz so uf that's what you're looking for you will not... More

Beautiful property with cozy clean rooms. My wife and I took a quick mini vacation and drove down to Islamorada for a three day two night getaway. We stayed in # 15 which was a small cozy clean room with a beautiful view from our window and private deck. The small room was no problem for us because we only... More

Beautiful place! The grounds are well kept, clean, and the staff attentive. We stayed in room 8 and it was beautiful with a gorgeous view of the sea. The only problem was the tree that grew in front and to the side of the patio/deck which blocked part of the view. But other than that, a truly great place, though... More

We booked a flight to check out the Keys, thought we would simply wing it, only to find out that Fantasy Fest was happening this week. Just drove past the Drop Anchor and pulled in. This is a sweet little property that reflects its owners pride of ownership. Totally spotless and well cared for property, and the staff really went... More

My husband and I found Drop Anchor on Trip Advisor and decided to stop in to check out a room. Steve was very accommodating and pleasant. Our room was amazing with the greatest view of the ocean. This place is clean and well maintained. It is also very quiet and relaxing. I highly recommend and will return!

Our room (#1) had a screened in front porch and a private closed in back patio with fountain and patio furniture. Most importantly, the room was extremely clean. You have to pay $25/day for maid service, but because we were only staying for 3 nights, we kept our room clean ourselves and just got fresh towels daily. The room had... More

We are very thankful for your review. Although it sounds like their may have been a misinterpretation. We do not charge $25.00 per day for housekeeping. I have no idea where that came from. And I'm very sorry if their was a misunderstanding. We appreciate your words of praise and will pass them along to the rest of our staff... More
