We stayed at Tranquilo prior to boarding our cruise. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and the Hotel lives up to it's name. It was perfect. The location was one street back from the beach, a short walk to shops and restaurants. We had a deluxe two bed suite and it was very clean and tidy, very well... More

Stayed here one night whilst travelling down to Miami. The front desk staff were excellent. The apartment I had was for 6 people and was huge. The furniture is Ikea,white and was very functional. Everything was very clean and tidy in the room. Flat screen tv in all rooms. Good kitchen which was well equipped. The Wi-Fi was not the... More

Only stayed here for one night while on route to the Florida Keys. I would classify it as a Motel rather than a Hotel. The room was comfy and spacious, internet was very slow. The air conditioning unit was poor and very noisy. There seemed to be a limited supply of hot water. When we returned from a night out,... More

We just needed a stop over for one night before continuing our journey and this fitted the bill nicely. It's basic but clean, comfortable and convenient (15 min drive from airport). We had a late check in which was no problem and the staff were friendly and helpful. Nice big shower and easy to operate air con were also pluses.

Wonderfully updated 50s style complex, sparkling clean with great service. A longish walk to downtown Ft. L, but along the beach for about half of it. Buy drinks and snacks while you're in town, as on-site availability is limited. It's fun to see a human-scale project like this instead of the massive scrape-off high rises common to the area.

Medea7, Thanks for your review. Although we're developing the area, we've made sure to keep the original mid-century modern architecture that give our boutique hotels that special charm. Our goal is to create an area that is pedestrian friendly, with lots of places to just sit and relax. We're happy that you noticed and hope that you can visit us... More

Long story, short -- you can't beat the price for the superb customer service, proximity to the beach, and the spacious suites! Though it's nothing fancy, Tranquilo is a GREAT value. When plumbing problems arose in our home, we were forced to find a hotel at the very last minute. There we were, at 11:00 pm, searching for a place... More

The hotel is very good. Staff is nice and very helpful. It's 4mn from the beach. There are 3 nice swimming pools. Well furnished kitchenette. Rooms are big and nice. The hotel is clean and quite ("tranquilo"). I highly recommend this hotel.

NoaTraveller, We're glad that Tranquilo gave you a "tranquilo" vacation! It's a great place, close to everything but tucked just far enough away that guests can enjoy some peace and quiet. The historic Bonnet House Museums and Gardens recently opened the South gate so guests can easily access this popular tourist attraction. Thanks again for your review. Take care, NBV More

My partner and I found ourselves on a little road trip after extending our stay to the US. Initially we were visiting the US for work purposes but decided to stay a while longer. This was by far the best value for money based on the accomodation. From the outside the Tranquilo reminds you of a motel, all rooms open... More

We were in town on business, but added two extra days to just kick back and chill on the beach. We were looking for laid back, low stress, and easy. We found it at Tranquilo.
