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...

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

The staff were really wonderful I arrived late at night and they took the time to show me through my room, provided a map of the area and activities that... 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

Booked the Tranquilo through booking.com as a 2 nighter in FL. The hotel is like stepping back in time, a little, it is essentially a collection of small apartments that form part of the North Beach Village Resort. NBVR is formed by a group of hotels and restaurants where you have all their facilities available to you to enhance your... More

This 2.5 star hotel was better than some of the 4 star hotels I've stayed at. Our room was modern, clean and quiet. The hotel is close to the beach- only about a 5 minute walk. The only downside was the super slow wi-fi but I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great value.

Guests staying at Tranquilo can enjoy a great hotel, but they also are able to take advantage of all of the amenities in the entire village, including the Village Spa and fitness center.

Excellent little hotel in Fort Lauderdale, a very short walk (5 minutes) away from the beach and shops by the beach. Premium accommodations for a fraction of the price (it feels like you're staying at the W). Will definitely stay there again when visiting Fort Lauderdale! The rooms are modern and nicely decorated, ours included a fridge and small kitchen,... More

Panos A, Thank you so much for your very kind review. We really appreciate it. Thanks for mentioning the rate. We try very hard to make sure we offer the most competitive rates in the area. Our rates may be low but as you found, our customer service is not! We really appreciate your feedback. Thanks again, NBV More

Guests love picnicking on sun-kissed beaches, taking water taxis to watersport thrills, cool shops and hot nightlife, but appreciate coming back to Tranquilo – where our outstanding hospitality adds up to an affordable and memorable getaway!Tranquilo’s 49-rooms are “modern with a sleek décor,” stylishly refurbished with flat screens, refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers.
