two block to Ft. Lauderdale beach, about 1/2 mile to a few bars, casual dining, and beach shops, Hotel itself is nothing fancy, good sized rooms that are self contained. Our room had a king size bed, small kitchen that included stove, toaster, microwave & refrigerator. Small bathroom that really needs a new shower head. Other than two chairs in... More

Granted, the place was clean and the bed was comfy but those are the main positives. The accommodations were very sparse, reminded us more of an average European hotel. In light of the neighborhood, coupled with having to pay $10 per night for parking and a room with nowhere to sit except on the bed - all that for over... More

Rooms are clean but VERY NOISY with normal neighbor activity. Rooms did not come with advertised inclusions, coffee maker, microwave and no telephone??? Had to ask for everything (WITNESSED OTHERS AS WELL) and each came with attitude!! Upon initial arrival staff was very pleasant but that changed when we began asking for what we paid for. If you expect to... More

While the pictures on the internet make this look like a small boutique hotel, it is really a complex of several hotel areas. However, lots of pools give the feel of a small hotel - each building surrounding a pool. I enjoyed sitting outside by myself during the evening reading by the pool. The hotel is nicely redone and feels... More

This year price was way up prob 100 a night more and we stayed in the building across the road from the office which... More

Tranquillo is a smalltalk guesthouse. When we arrived the First Impression from the front Desk was a heartly welcome. The Roms are more than spacious and clean. The Rooms are Held in White. We will come again

We chose the Tranquilo because it looked so calm and peaceful, despite being just a block away from Fort Lauderdale’s beach. After ten days in Walt Disney World we figured we would need somewhere quiet for a while, and were not disappointed. We stayed in a first floor room with one king and one queen sized bed, in adjoining rooms.... More

We had the king one bedroom suite and felt like we had a palatial suite. The resort was so lovely we felt like staying and staying. The pool was warm and divine, and the resort was only 2 blocks from the Vistamar beach. The staff was extremely friendly and always available to help.

We recently stayed at the Tranquilo for a couple of nights before our cruise and a couple of nights after to accommodate our flight times. The place was very clean and a great location for walking to the beach front, where local bars, restaurants and shops await. I found the staff very helpful whenever we needed any assistance too

A group of 4 girls needed a little break from the cold weather so we decided to head to Fort Lauderdale. As always, I looked up area hotels on Trip Advisor and came across a small boutique style hotel called Tranquilo.
