Local Attractions

Located just south of Key Largo, Islamorada is 18 miles long and less than one mile wide. It is made up of four main islands: Plantation Keys, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, and Lower Matecumbe Key. Legend claims that "Islamorada" means "Purple Isle, " and that the name was given to the area by Spanish explorers who noticed a purple hue to the coastline. The truth is the Islamorada was named "Island Home, " after the Pinder Family's sailboat. They settled here in the 1870s after the area was homesteaded. Even though Islamorada has changed since the days of pineapple plantations and turtle farming, it is still a quaint fishing village in many ways. Only now, Islamorada is known as the "Sport Fishing Capital of the World" because most world fishing records have been set here. Islamorada offers fishing in the backcountry, on the reef and offshore. Indeed, the wealth of fishing opportunities enables the area to support the largest concentration of charter fishing boats in the entire Florida Keys.

Verified Reviews of Drop Anchor Resort & Marina

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Tranquil, pleasant, accommodating staff and very clean."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This was a spur of the moment getaway, and we needed two separate bedrooms. After researching the net, this place popped up. It was pleasant surprise, the area was quiet with plenty to do. Relaxing by the pool with my elderly aunt went very well, after a staff member set up a more supportive chair for my aunt to be able to be comfortable. It is very well kept, and everyone seems to love what they are doing. We'll definitely be back. Thinking of a girls getaway. While you're there, check out Bitton French cafe, they have the best coffee.

"Pleasant"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
My room was extremely small for two people and the mattress too soft and old.

"My team and I had a great stay at the Marriot Norcross last week. I was unable to meet up with Ms Vanita and unable to passed her a box of Godiva Chocolates I bought for her. We will not even bother to seek other hotel-planning-organization after we have used your great service. You can even quote me on this. Meanwhile, we have to make 2 trips to the states every year from now onwards and will definitely use your services. Once again, thank you for making our trip a success." O.S. - Atlanta, GA
