Booked for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel was lovely. The rooms were clean and the decor was minimalist and fresh. Staff were polite and very helpful. The pool area was clean, tidy and a nice area to relax and cool down. The hotel is not big - it is small and personable. We felt... More

Stayed 3 night sin July 2014. Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable, you feel at home. kitchen and regular refrigerator is plus. Very close to beach, 5 minutes walk. It is close to shopping and dining areas in Fort Lauderdale. We recommend this hotel and we will stay if we will go to FLL again. Thanks to Tranquilo team.

Just a couple blocks to the beach and a much better value than some of the other hotel chains. The hotel had a few small kidney bean pools to swim in. Free towels to use at the pool or beach. The room itself was a pretty big size, two queen size beds, a dresser, couch and two flat screens. Big... More

The stay at this property was a very pleasant surprise. Not having traveled to the east coast of Florida for many years, I asked around to inquire where some of my friends stayed while in Ft. Lauderdale. My grandson suggested we contact North Village properties (owner of Tranquillo and others in that area). I was so pleased to stay there.... More

Stayed here for a couple of days with my family after a cruise in the beginning of June. Reviews about this place are spot on. The rooms were clean and spacious (especially after a cruise!), the grounds were well maintained and the staff were especially friendly and helpful. A shout-out to DANIELLE who was so helpful with our dinner arrangements... More
