We spent six nights at Drop Anchor just after New Year's looking to kick back, sit in the sun, and relax. The resort afforded us an excellent opportunity to do just that. We had two days of great weather, two mediocre and two pretty lousy, but that was not Drop Anchor's fault. In scouting the DA website I determined that...

First the positives The hotel is a collection of rooms situated off the main road but is set back so that although you can hear traffic at times we did not find it intrusive. There is no beach although it could be said that the pictures on the website could suggest there is one. The loungers and chairs are placed...

We were meandering our way down the Keys and this was our 2 nd night. The older room was clean - but being that our room 14b was off to the side of the main bldg - we were closer to the road. It wasn't terribly warm and wanted to sleep with the windows open- but the road noise kept...

Spent 3 nights here. Room spacious and clean. Great views from balcony (we had room 10) and stunning 'beach' with sun loungers etc. Not a proper beach as only an inch of sand, but felt like one. Our son enjoyed fishing from this area which was very quiet whilst we were there. Pool looked inviting but didn't get chance to...

Stayed one night in #16 with our family on the way to key west. Big clean room with its own private patio in front and back! Resort is just great.

We enjoyed our room and the views. It is a great "key" to visit for anyone looking for a quiet & relaxing vacation or, you are into fishing or boating. Our room was right behind the office and was very clean. The only bad thing I would say was the a/c was very noisy.

This is a pleasant, 16?, set of cottages and motel rooms set on the ocean. We had #15 and loved the location. There is a beach of white sand between the rooms and the sea wall. It is a small development and is very clean. It is not a modern resort like a Hyatt or Marriott would be so you...

I am amazed by all the great reviews, clearly I missed something here... reviews are usually right but Trip advisor really let me down this time. Fortunately we just stayed one night. First, to me this is not a resort, this a motel. By the road. With nothing else around. They don't even serve breakfast. There is no beach, just...
