By chance, a friend and I discovered Royal Anchor Resort, and I am already planning for next years stay!! It is obvious, how much the owners and staff take pride in the resort! We were lucky to find this gem by chance, and to get a room with great ocean views, amazing sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are immaculately clean. Continental breakfast, muffins cereal, fresh fruit, juice, just enough to get you ready for a walk on the beach. The location is great, far enough away from main center of Old Orchard beach, to have quiet, but close enough if you want to go down there. Also close to LL Bean outlet shop, and to Perkins Cove. Saco is a great town, 5 minutes away, with a Drive In Movie and great supermarket-Hannigans! Not to mention Ken's Seafood! Great place ! Each room has a Keurig cup coffee machine, and a refrigerator that kept food cold. The owners could not have been more helpful! Now in response to other reviews, yes the bathrooms are small, and yes you get a key instead of a key card-but if you are looking for a for a Hilton Garden Inn, so be it. I would rather have a small bathroom, and a key, and have my sunrises and sunsets over the water, and hear the ocean crashing on the shore as I go to sleep. I did go in low season, Sept 15 through 18th,but still got a sunburn walking the beach. And they have a beautiful pool, clean, open if you choose to swim. I wanted to give my review, but still wanted to keep this great place a secret! It has a very intimate feel, sometimes when you stay in a big hotel, no one talks to each other, here the guests, most people who go here every year, will converse, while still respecting your privacy. Amazing. Planning for next year! Can't wait to go back! And the price for the room was amazing! Two weeks later ,had to get a room in NH ,no ocean views, much more expensive! What else can I say?
If you call the resort, they will be honest about the room views to the ocean-but most with a small...
