“Perfect Peace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is the perfect place for me to stay with two grandchildren. The villa is cool, clean and comfortable with a beautiful garden breezway. There is a frig and microwave so we could eat on the run before diving.
Karla was so pleasant helping us make travel plans and find places to eat. Doug helped us rent a car, find restaurants and was willing to help us with anything we needed. Everything they do is with a smile and I am sure they are content in such a peaceful environment. The grounds were perfect and the room cleaned with care.
This is a perfect place in the city to stay and will be the only place for us.

First visit to beloved Anclas since Pedro/Eyal departure. Endearing memories of Eyal's pamperings, now replaced with a new owner, Doug, who lifts this paradise to levels UNPARALLED. Operations Manager, Karla, will win you over FAST. Only one explanation why such a lovely woman would give so selfisly to make the comforts and joys of Cozumel so very real to all her guests.... ESPERANZA! IT is all in her! She will woo you with her warmth of service, and send you away with HOPE that you just might take some of "IT" home with you. Only those who are blessed enough to stay at Las Anclas will know what "IT" is! Trust me, IT is sweet.... So blessed that IT lives on in Cozumel, and that IT touched this heart!! Can't wait to return to LasAnclas... Thanks, Doug, for keeping my special home away from home so VERY special. -Rusty Walker, Ft.Worth (214-287-4273)

We had a wonderful week in Villa las anclas, great service and a clean, quiet place to relax! The people at the reception gave us a lot of useful information and the cleaning lady and the gardener were really friendly.

I just love it here. We have been here six times now and it is as close to a “second home” as a hotel is ever likely to get for us and the recent changeover of owners doesn't change that for me. The owners and all the staff are really helpful and talkative and the improvements they have made and plan to make are all in keeping with the general feel of the place anyway. The buzz in the new reception area for the hotel and the dive shop next door but connected is great and the free coffee in the morning is a nice new touch especially for those of us in a rush not that there is ever any need to rush on 'Mexican time'. The rooms are super large, the beds are comfortable and the courtyard is beautiful - a great place to sit whether you want sun or shade. I don't have a bad word to say about the place but I wouldn't would I or why would we all keep coming back.

Check out the photos they say everything really except perhaps location. Location is great not too near the front, not too far back, no taxis required and most important nowhere near the airport. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance. My favourite restaurants are Kondessa, Kinta and Del Sur though Antigua just a few doors down does a nice simple breakfast. My favourite drinking places are La Casa de Mojito (best Mojitos ever) and Wet Wendy's (great Daquiris for those who don't like Margaritas for which they are more popularly known) but best of all is probably the hotel courtyard where it is very easy with a fridge full of cold beer to while away the hours until happy hour when we break out the rum and pineapple. Its doesn't get better than that - just go, just not the last week in February, first week in March they're ours!.

We have stayed at Las Anclas several times now and the change of owners this year has not hurt it one bit. It was great a few years ago, and it is even better now.

The owners Doug and Jim have a great deal of pride in this hotel and have made some very worthwhile improvements to the rooms and reception area and keep it extremely clean and safe. A great courtyard makes it easy to mix with other guests but you can be as private as you want to be of course. All the staff are helpful and friendly and thankfully someone was there to meet us even though we arrived much later than anticipated having to catch the last ferry over. We just fell into bed that night and was delighted with the very comfortable new mattress.

The hoter is in a great location of course, just as good as everyone says it is as you can walk to a different restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day if you are minded to - well forget breakfast if you are diving of course but as you only have to go next door to the Tres Pelicanos diveshop there is no complaint there either. It is a really good pairing that works well for us.

We remembered to take a few days off diving this year so we could chill and even visit the other side of the island which we had not done for a while and we had a lot of fun. All in all another great holiday made better by the owners and staff at Villas Las Anclas and the other guests we met there.

We are happy to recommend it to everyone, may you enjoy it as much as we do.

This is our 11th trip to Cozumel with 10 stays at Villas Las Anclas. Our time there keeps getting better with every visit. The new owners, Doug and Jim, with the help of the manager Carla, Ceasar the maintanence man/gardner, and Merci the maid, continues to provide the comfort and charm made famous by the previous owners. All of the staff are very friendly, always with a smile, and positive attitudes.

The new additions of a coffee island, barbeque patio, and upgraded WiFi connections were greatly appreciated. Their new office is beautiful and a friendly place to stop and say hi to the staff, take advantage of their growing library, or have Carla assist with reservations.

As usual, there is no bad room in the place. The central patio is a great place to gather with other guest. But when you enter your room, you are in a quiet, pleasant apartment away from the rest of the world.

This year, with Tres Pelicano Dive Shop next door, it made diving even easier. We would just wander next door and take the ride to the Calita and hop in the boat.

With a short walk in any direction there are great drinks and food abound.

As usual, we were sad to leave but anxious to return. We know we have found the BEST accommodations on the island. But that is no secret since they are #1!

My husband and I stayed for 3 days (not long enough), and we had a great time. The owners Jim and Doug were awesome and helpful. The hotel is convenient to good restaurants and Carla will call a cab for you or rent a car. Las Anclas is quiet and safe. Villas were clean and had comfy firm beds. Doug I'm sorry we didn't have proper goodbye...the cab came while you were helping new arrival. We met really nice people at villas all returning customers. We are now well rested but depressed about our departure. I just can't emphasize how great Carla was to us! Y'all got a good thing going! Love it! We will be back. R and M

Room Tip: All rooms great. Locked gate after about 5 or 6 in the evening. Restaurants nearby, Kondesa, Le Chef...
