We were recently back in Cozumel and stayed at Las Anclas again. We really enjoy the in town location and the individual villas. It's a great place to stay, especially if you're a diver. The staff are just fantastic. The more we go the more we feel like family.

The Villa was a great size hotel within walking distance from the ferry and easy access to the restaurants. The pool is small however we were there for the beaches so it was certainly pleasant.

Always a favorite of mine, Villas Las Anclas, maintains a special charm that can not be matched by the granite countertops of the many condominiums in Cozumel. Come immerse yourself in the culture and pace of "island life."

The rooms are private two story mini suites. The place is impeccably clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are the right temperature all the time and there is free WiFi. The location is walking distance to everything in town.

The perfect private getaway. We loved our week stay in March of 2016. What a wonderful and different experience from the large resorts. The garden area was beautiful and the pool clean and refreshing. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely choose to stay here again!

Villa Las Anclas is actually eight two-story condos located right in the middle of town only steps away from most places you'd want to be but quiet and serene. The condos are well-equipped and comfortable and each has a small kitchen with a larger grill and cooking area in the courtyard. Perfect for dive trips, there's also a small pool...

This beautiful, 2-story but quaint Villa is beautifully decorated, excellently maintained, and run by exceptionally kind and friendly staff. It is only .3 miles from the Ferry and surrounded by excellent but cozy restaurants and mini-marts. It is also only about a block from the beach. They offer free bottled water in and a grill in the courtyard. There is...

If you are trying to stay away from the All Inclusive vibe but want clean, comfortable and quaint this is it. It is in the town of San Miguel, walking distance to restaurants, bakeries, piers for excursions or for the Playa del Carmen's 40 minute ferry. Doug, the owner lives in one of the villas.

We stayed at the Villas Las Anclas in early June 2016. I was surprised that each room was actually a two story townhouse, complete with a small kitchen. The hotel itself was very clean and well maintained. We wanted to go on a private guided snorkeling trip. I asked the lady working the front desk if she knew anybody and...

first stayed VLA in the 90s, and have been back several times since. My most recent visit was 10 days ago, and I was glad to see it matched my memories of being clean, quiet, friendly, beautiful, comfortable. Staff and owner, Doug, were helpful, the rooms are spotless, quiet, restful. I could not have been happier with it.

“There are 8 villas each with the one bedroom and bathroom up a steep, cement spiral staircase. We had no problem but would not recommend for anyone with limited mobility or young children. The last 2 villas are near the pool which may affect your privacy if it is a busy season. ”
