Our extended family of 15- including 9 children ranging in age from 2 to 17- thoroughly enjoyed our week at La Tranquila. We felt it to be almost our private retreat, for some reason there were VERY few other guests there. Though there were no specific facilities for children, the beautiful, uninhabited (except for us) beach and the many, many... More

My family and I traveled here over spring break and had a terrible experience. This was largely due to the timeshare rep, Blake, harassing us about paying for a timeshare. When we declined Blake went on an unprofessional tirade in the lobby with others present. It was clear to us that he was desperate for the commission, and/or the hotel... More

Wonderful stay here at La Tranquila. All reviews fit this to a "T". My one major complaint: despite being meticulous about communications with Ricardo prior to coming, and a deposit (approximately 75% of bill) in USD, the following occurred: The deposit was charged an extra 2.5% unbeknownst to me prior to arrival. Ricardo called this a bank fee. When it... More

We stayed for 8 days at La Tranquila (2 adults, 3 teenagers and a 9 yr old). Booked a 3 bedroom suite, which was perfect. It's basically an apartment with kitchen, family room, dining room, a beautiful terrace and laundry station. Hotel restaurants have reasonable prices and food is very good. Personally, I enjoyed the morning breakfasts and the variety... More

We are staying next door at the Iberostar which is amazing. We went for a tour at the La tranquila- I would NOT book here! The place is a ghost town with very minimal amenities. Also the resort is for the most part incomplete with a very large portion of the main building looking more like something out of a... More

My wife and I agree with the many of the previous reviews. This place is spectacular and beautiful. If you are looking for peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful architecture, this place is for you. The pools are unlike any we've ever seen. We are, perhaps, low maintenance travelers in that things like slower poolside service don't bother us. In... More

The resort is beautifull, really breathtaking; the downside is that it is completely isolated so you must really plan ahead and take whatever you might need to eat and entertain yourself on a rainy day. Service at restaurants is slow, waiters could be a lot more helpful and polite; there is no high-speed wi-fi.

We came to La Tranquila with another couple and had a wonderful vacation, thanks to the bar and restaurant staff who made us feel like family. The management could afford to be replaced, but I can't find it in my heart to give this place anything less than a 5 star rating. I will just share my recommendations of how... More

I would truly love to give this place a five star rating, but can't quite do so. That being said, we loved our week here. If I could sum it up, I would say "different", or "strange" but peaceful and gorgeous. It seemed to me that the place was designed by a genius who drank to excess on occasion. It... More
