The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Gee (sp?) was very helpful and nice. The room was clean, bright and airy. The pool(s) and grounds were very well kept. Easy, short walk to the beach, shopping and dining. Will definitely stay again, glad we found this hidden gem!

I needed a place for a weekend get away and thought I'd try something different (I usually stay at the Hampton Inn or something similar). This was rated pretty high on TripAdvisor so I have it a try. Not a bad price, decent location but a little walk to the best parts of the beach. Parking was tight. We checked... More

We stayed at Tranquilo at two occasions in February and March 2014. At our first arrival we had some trouble at check in, as we received a smaller room than reserved. This was probably due to an error made when we changed the dates for our stay. Though this was all sorted out by the helpful personnel in the reception.... More

Loved everything about it, clean, stylish and great location! Will definitely be going again next time we are in the area. Loved the decor and the amenities. Must visit Bonnet House which is right next door. The beach is just a stones throw away and we were lucky to get the king suite that faced the water.

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.

The rooms were very clean. large and modern with a handy kitchenette. We stayed only one night to enable us to 'do' Sawgrass Mills Shopping and Sawgrass Recreation Park, before cruising... More

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

Amazing facility. Jory in the office was sweet, helpful, gave us great local recommendations. We had a hiccup on 4th of July night after getting back from fireworks, our key would not open our door, they had someone there in moments on a holiday night to get our door open, then 15 minutes later someone else came by to change...
