“Beautiful and Splended Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

If you are looking for a great place to stay in the Keys and have lots of fun and relaxation then Tranquality Bay Resort is the place for you. Hate to sound like an advertisment but it is everything you see and read on the web site. We were well taken care of and the friendly and very courtious staff was extremely responsive to any of our needs. The beach houses are great, the beaches are beautiful and the pool is relaxing. The location is in the middle Keys and just a short drive to anything the keys offer. I would certainly recommend the resort to any of my family or friends as a great place to vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the beach are quieter. You may here some traffic on the main road in the beach house...

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Tranquility Bay Resort. The staff and facilities exceeded our expectations. Everyone was friendly and helpful and helped make our week fun and full of good memories in spite of the record breaking week of storms and rain. I can't wait to go back with our children and grandchildren to play in the beautiful lagoon and enjoy the exceptional facilities. Go to Tranquility Bay Resort. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose rooms as close to the lagoon and Tiki Bar as possible. The scenery and access to these areas...

The hotel as a structure is a very nice place. Nice and big townhouses. Clean. The problem is that it needs people to run it. Preferably "hospitality trained " folks. Well, that is not the case here. These folks lack social skills. They seem to live in fear and act as if a normal question from a guest, such as "can I talk to the manager?" or "can I get late check-out?" are threats.
I read many reviews before booking, but went with the odds. 411 excellent... 59 poor/terrible.
Everyone's experience is different. And here I am... lol !! Like anything, if all goes well, then you get good reviews, but the interesting ones are the ones when a problem occurs, and the staff/hotel comes through in a great way.. guess that will not be the case here. Summary: Tree trimming one full day... no smoking for those poor folks even in the beach (they almost have to leave Marathon or risk getting mugged by hobos or runned over by passing trucks in the main highway).. no music at the only bar (gee, at least play "mozart" if you are so upscale)... rude and powerless front desk staff...(their first response..NO)... Manager was never available... (is there one?) Well, blew $800 plus on this experiment (not proud) and really, last 3 months I have tried the Key Largo Hilton and the Marriott, and even though space is more reduced, they do employ hospitality staff, have pool towels, music, kids activities, friendly faces and the OUTDOORS still belong to the people... smokers can stay, and the ocean water can enter the small but well maintained lagoons. (no stink coming from the ocean into the ocean front rooms).

Room Tip: Mine was very close to the highway... heard traffic every night..

The units are spacial, beautiful and fully stocked. Everything you want/need is there. The views from the units were spectacular! There is a lower porch off the living room with chairs and a small table and a covered porch off the master bedroom as well. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location is close to grocery stores and convenience stores. There is a nice public beach nearby if you want variety in beaches. There was quite a bit of seaweed, which seems to be an issue in all of the Keys, but there was no smell associated with it as I had read in other write ups. The on-site restaurant had excellent food and a nice decor. The prices are comparable to other more casual restaurants in the area where you will eat from picnic tables or plastic tables with plastic cups.

This place exceeded our expectations. We met and stayed there with family from different places. The accommodations suited our needs perfectly. The house and grounds were very clean and tidy. We enjoyed the quiet beach house atmosphere especially the porches and views. The lagoon pool was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Whether you stay at the Key West or Marathon location you will feel as if you landed in paradise. The condos are perfect, the staff is exceptional and the grounds are to die for. Beds that are wonderful, pillows that are full and fluffy, event the rooms are decorated in tranquil colors. You'll want for nothing. White sandy beaches when there are none on Key West to speak of. Singh resorts did their homework. Perfect!

Room Tip: Go for the beach front upgrade. It was well worth the money to walk out your condo right onto the be...

We stayed at Tranquility Bay for 7 nights in August 2011. I believe everything has been said about this place. Our three-bedroom townhouse was clean and roomy. A place I would go back to, for sure.
