Drop Anchor is always fun. No hassle, great space; you can do your own thing. Done rooms also have a kitchen/fridge area. So if you want to cook or grill out, you can. Nice, quite and cozy.

My first time visiting the Keys and staying at Drop Anchor was the most amazing time I ever had! I stayed in the beach front trailer which I absolutely loved! The whole place was absolutely beautiful, relaxing, all of the staff was super accommodating and helpful! I barely left the hotel because you literally have your own little tropical paradise in your front yard! Zac is such a great person and goes above and beyond to take care of everyone! Thank you again and I will be back very soon!

We loved Drop Anchor. It was a nice little stay for us & was all we needed. The small private beach & pool area was fantastic & we will definitely consider coming back here in the future.
