Encouraged by the sea is a wonderful resort close to everything. Though with beautiful ocean views, wonderful food, and a pristine swimming pool, there is certainly no need to leave the resort. Great experience overall!

Our 10th trip to the Anchorage by the sea. Great as usual. Clean, great service. Make a reservation at the upstairs bar. Great views and drinks an food. If yup want fancier food eat downstairs in the restaurant. Pool was great; views from the many seats overlooking the ocean. Can walk everywhere- just leave the car in the lot.

Came here with another couple, there isn’t a bad room (location) in the place. Definitely the best pool in town, you can walk to everything including the beach and Perkins Cove! Their breakfast is incredible, service was a touch slow, but they are still staffing up for the peak season. Can’t wait to come back!

Do not stay on the tower area! Beds are size of 2 single beds. Have to cross a Maine street to get to pool area. Not safe if you have kids with you. No late checkout! Staff not accommodating. Good points is It is great location and very clean

Everything about our experience was amazing. The facilities (pool, hot tub), dining (bars, restaurants), vies and ambience far exceeded our expectations. Definitely would recommend to couples or families.

The pool was open with restrictions-25ppl in pool,25ppl in chairs max. You can’t get to the beach from the resort. It’s about 10 min walk. I wouldn’t recommend for a one night stay, security walks around and asks you to leave at 12pm on the day of check out. There’s not enough time to enjoy the property on a one night stay.

There was an indoor pool, i believe the outdoor pool and 2 jacuzzi's outside. Not sure if there's a jacuzzi inside anymore.

We were there in April. Yes, the outside pool is heated and there are two whirlpools as well. The water was plenty warm even when the nights were chilly.
