Great stay. Lovely location. Beautiful view from my room #10. Clean and well appointed suite. This was my first time staying on Islamorada. It's a great slow pace relaxing spot. Drop anchor has a great retro exterior deco but immaculately maintained. Nice places to relax, either on hammocks, lounge chairs, Adirondack chairs under shady palms. The management was very friendly...

We were here for a wedding nearby and had three rooms. My husband and I stayed in room 1 and it was wonderful. Nicely appointed, convenient kitchen, comfortable. The gentleman that maintains the grounds does an amazing job - all outdoor furniture is clean, everything outside is immaculate! The beach area and views are amazing. Definitely recommend.
