I almost hate to give this such a glowing review as there are only a handful of condo units in this quaint complex and the secret could get out. This was my second stay here and this is hands down the best kept secret on 7 mile beach. All units have wonderful ocean views so you can't go wrong. The units are serviced daily by very attentive staff who are always easy to reach if you need anything. The pool and beach areas are well kept and quiet. The location is closer to the West End area of 7 mile beach and about half a mile from the best close to shore snorkeling at Cemetery beach. There is a grocery store very close as well and its very convenient to many restaurants and shopping via a short drive. I think you would definitely want a car to get around.
The only thing that could make this better would be having a washer/dryer in the unit but that seems minimal with compared to how wonderful the condo is overall.

Room Tip: Units on the 2nd and 3rd floors have the best views

Family of 5 stayed in apartment 4. This turned out to be the best apartment in the block complete with sea view and its own access to the pool and beach.
The Anchorage is also located on the sandyist part of the beach with no rocks in the sea unlike the other apartments nearby. Warm water so no trouble entering the sea. Plus great snorkelling on the doorstep complete with shoals of fish. Also free parking and tennis.
Apartment 4 is spacious, has good amenities and 3 bedrooms, plus large kitchen dining and sitting room.
We will be back!

We visited in late June/early July with our adult children and booked 7 nights in a beachfront Deluxe, which was perfect for 3 couples. The trip was a Christmas gift for our family, and the condo management could not have been more helpful and courteous regarding the selection and booking of our unit. Special thanks go to Josie, who was especially kind and wonderful to us throughout our stay! She's an absolute doll and always warm and friendly.

Maid service (daily except for Sun) was phenomenal! The ladies were so thorough & efficient but never obtrusive. They did a great job keeping our condo clean and fresh. They were also very sweet and pleasant.

Our unit was spotless and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was neat and organized. We prepared breakfast in the room daily and occasionally stopped in for lunch as well. We dined out as a group each evening, although 2 grills are available for those who wish to use them. The 2 bathrooms were great and everything was in good working order. Our only issue was regarding towels. As an active family enjoying daily workouts & water sports, sometimes requiring an extra shower, we would have been more comfortable with extra towels and wash clothes. We did manage with the 1 set per person, but will bring extra next time. Not a big deal.

The beach was absolutely stunning, well groomed and maintained daily by the tireless and always friendly, Patrick. He raked the sand daily, organized beach chairs, etc, keeping the grounds pristine and inviting. We loved chatting with him early in the morning, while waiting for turtles to cruise past. The water was crystal clear, warm and relaxing. Most days beach chairs and huts were available when we needed them, and other guests were gracious and civilized...no saving, reserving, etc as occurs at large resorts - thank goodness. No stress at all here! Simply paradise .

This was our 3rd visit to GC and by far, our best. We had stayed at another condo along SMB as well as the Marriott, but all agreed that our stay at the Anchorage was so relaxing, fun and enjoyable. We can't wait to return and are planning another visit for next summer. Highly recommend this property.

We love the Ancorage Condos. The beach is gorgeous and the condos are the most perfect place to stay on Seven Mile Beach. We have rented 5 condos with our extended family several times and it has always been a glorious week. We have always found a hut or two to sit under to get shade and even in their busiest season, we've never had to reserve chairs. It's quiet and so very relaxing. The water is clear, smooth, rock-free and the most beautiful turquoise blue. When we stay on the ground floor, it takes 30 seconds to get to our awaiting lounge chair. We have also stayed at the Ancorage with several other adult couples. While it is kid-friendly, it is also perfect for an all adult vacation.
The staff is amazing. They are friendly and accommodating. If we've needed anything at all, they find a way to make it happen immediately. The house-keepers are excellent and our condo is cleaned thoroughly every day, except on Sundays. When we've stayed on an upper floor, the view of the water is breath-taking. There is a grocery a mile away and an abundance of gourmet and casual dining nearby. I hope this little jewel stays just the way it is, even as the island becomes more built-up. The Ancorage in the Caymans is our #1 go-to winter vacation.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are beach front. Higher floors have better views but the ground floor has a 50-foot walk to your lounge chair.

The Anchorage Condos are our goto place in the Caymans. We have stayed at the hotels and other condos but the Anchorage is the best place on SMB. Yes there are family resorts with big pools but the private setting and the private beach of the Anchorage are priceless. You can't rent a hotel room for the cost of an ocean front condo.

The staff is amazing.... the manger has been there for over 20 years and loves her job.

You can not go wrong staying at the Anchorage.
