Just spent a few days at Royal Anchor Resort at the end of September. I can't think of a better place to spend your vacation in Old Orchard Beach. The rooms are large, immaculate and comfortable. The pool is also well maintained and heated to a very comfortable temperature at all times. The morning continental breakfast has a very nice... More

Never felt so compelled to write a review but felt the need to advise those traveling with young kids or wishing to have a comfortable sleep for that matter. Location is nice, beach access a definite plus. Staff all lovely - during the day, when they are around. Agree with previous reviewer about unattended beach chair rentals and snack shop.... More

Loved the location and the staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The only Con I could come up with is that they do not have a/c in the rooms. However the ocean breeze was nice. I highly recommend this resort to everyone. Cant wait to go back.

Jennifer Thank you for taking the time to give us this nice write-up. I would agree with you that our location is beautiful and our staff is amazing! It is worth noting that we do have 4 rooms with a/c - they are the rooms that do not have a view. So if a/c is preferred that may be an... More

We stay here every year and absolutely love it!! It's perfect with the beach and the pool. We walk to town it's a mile away. The help is so great here and look forward to seeing them every year... The rooms are a good size. They have a refrigerator in the room and a Continental breakfast.

We had a nice stay. Our two children enjoyed the tennis, basketball and swimming. The rooms were nicely kept, and they offered a nice continental breakfast. The location is fabulous, right on the beach. It was lovely.
