Nice clean, simple apartment hotel. A block from the beach so it is close enough and still quiet at night. Clean newly renovated apartments with fully equipped kitchenettes. Pools at the hotel are nice. The beach segment closest to the hotel is nice as well. Given the price and location of the Tranquilo it was a excellent value.

Darryl, David and Richard gave us a fantastic service and the rooms where perfect. Much better and cleaner than hotels priced several times higher. Would be more than happy to stay here again. The hotel is situated close to the beach and must have been newly renovated.

We were very warmly greeted and given all info we needed in a very friendly manner plus good ideas on where to eat. Great location just off A1. Nicely appointed kitchen & bath altho we only spent a night. Only 'problem' our room needed new blinds.

The staff of Tranquilo was exceptionally helpful. My original reservation, which I made through booking.com, did not provide my family and I with sufficient beds for us to all sleep in. Despite arriving late at night and experiencing this reservation hiccup. JORY and DAVID went ABOVE AND BEYOND to accommodate my family. They were able to get me an additional... More

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

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
