Don't be deceived by the slightly dilapidated facade: this intimate resort's interiors were completely gutted and upgraded post-Ivan, and they're still a fine value. The two-bedroom condos are cramped compared with otherwise newer compounds, but fully equipped, modernized, scrupulously clean, and—most important—affordable (though the surcharge for oceanfront–view units, despite admittedly glorious sweeping panoramas from the third floor, is steep). Many have an odd,
if versatile, L-shape layout, though owners adapt the space ingeniously into "dens" with trundle beds, extra TV rooms, or offices. But the peace and little extras make the Anchorage a safe port of call for any family.
