We stayed at Tranquility Bay for 3 nights last week and wish we would have stayed longer. It is a very relaxing place, the grounds and pools well kept. The beach area is pretty, but not so much of a real swim area. The bar is the perfect place to watch the sun go down. For the accomodations themselves the... More

We stayed at this hotel for a change and were a bit underwhelmed. The "Beach" left something to be desired and the roof leaked onto our laptop when we took a shower upstairs. The tiki bar was small but pretty nice. We won't be going back.

Booked an impromptu vacation with my husband and 10 yr old son for the end of May 2012. Only available unit on the beach was a three bedroom oceanfront. :) The PROs +++++" Beautiful tranquility" should be the resorts name. We watched the best sunsets we have ever seen and they compared to Kanapali Beach in Maui. The resort landscaping... More

We had a very nice Memorial Day weekend in the keys. Tranquility Bay is now one of our favorite places that we have ever stayed at. It is the cleanest hotel/resort! The Butterfly Room was delicious and the service was excellent. The grounds are very nice also. The view from our partial ocean view room was beautiful. Loved the pool.... More

Very nice accomodations. Very clean and well provisioned. Porches are very nice. Beautiful tropical grounds with and occasional green iguanas for atmosphere. Nice sunset viewing. Swimming pool is very nice. Beach is very small and not really useful for swimming. Go to nearby public beaches. Bahia Honda park is excellent.

Great facility. The townhomes are spacious and very comfortable. Easy access to all the resort amenitites. Staff were excellent. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Marathon is very laid back but we did have some incredible meals both on site and off site. The only negative was the beach was not what we expected, lots of seagrass and not crystal clear water....

There was a dead rat in the water swimming belly up several feet away from the Tiki Bar. The water on the beach is slimy and dirty - the beach is unusable. The hotel is in the middle of an industrial area. Not my idea of tranquility bay.

HAPPY ! We rented a 3 bedroom house and really had no complaints. We went 3 couples per house which sucked because I got... More

This was our first time at Tranquility Bay and we were absolutely delighted. The townhouse was lovely and very clean. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Property is very well kept. Lovely bay beach, ADULT ONLY pool which is a big plus. Stay away from the spa services!!! Our massage was no more than a gentle rub and for $120... More

We stayed at Tranquility Bay for 4 days for our 30th Anniversary before moving on to Key West. We arrived late (8:30 PM) and were assigned to Unit 15, which had no sunset view and was directly behind the Kiddie Pool. The next day after listening to several screaming toddlers and their nagging mother, we requested to change units to... More
