Verified Reviews of Drop Anchor

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.
