“Loved our relaxing stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

What a beautiful property here. Our room was perfect. Better than perfect because it was better than what we had expected. Large kitchen. Great comfy beds. Lots of bathrooms. I wanted to move in forever. The pools are very clean and a great size. Great for children. Easy for adults. The staff is super friendly. Only wish they offered more casual dining options. The butterfly cafe is yummy and very nice. But it is a little stuffy for every night. And there is no lunch there. The tiki bar is good but there are not a lot of options. We did enjoy cooking in our kitchen. Very Easy! And the coffee they supply for the coffee pot is excellent. In conclusion, we cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: There are rooms with elevator lifts outside for those who cannot do stairs. As well as rooms with r...

This is paradise...the cottages are weel appointed and have eveything you could possibly want. Golf carts whizz around with housekeepers in them and the place is 100% spotless. it offers a pool, lagoon type beachy,paddling,scene. Tiki bar and all th water sporty stuff just in case.
my only compalint which you can find anywhere is the barstaff clearly work on the tab, overcharging for kids drinks, not honoring happy hr, not having whats advertised and the rest...so when you twig to that scheme you can either buy your own or challenge them to make you whats on offer instead. sad wines n over sized bottles are rubbish for such a nice place and no ice cream for kids shakes is nonsense too...

Room Tip: ask for beachfront, or fla resident if you are eligible, dont book online they have better deals ove...

There is no where in the Florida Keys nicer than Tranquility Bay Resort. Rooms are set up as well appointed condos with complete kitchens. Every unit has a lovely view from one of two balconies. Flat screen TV downstairs and up with DVDs for movie watching. The grounds are beautiful and everything is pristine. The restaurant, Butterfly Cafe is also excellent. Be sure to try the "award-winning" key lime pie. Superb . All of the personnel are friendly and helpful. You can be sure that we will return.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful.

I have to say that I have been blessed to have been here two years in a row. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the staff is really accommodating, yet the costs seem to hit home hard. If you can get past the 'bottom line' then nothing compares to Tranquility Bay. Absolutely a beautiful place to enjoy the winters of the USA.!!!

We stayed 3 nights in mid-January - the weekday deals at $211 + tax/fees made this property very attractive and so much nicer than a standard hotel. Having separate rooms and baths for a family with 2 teenagers was perfect. The units, beach and grounds were all immaculate. The whole feel is laid back and family-friendly. The grassy lawn opening from each unit was beautiful, and the expansive beach/sand areas with lounge chairs amid the palms is a great addition not usually found in the keys. House keeping was very good and all of the staff was helpful and pleasant. Both pools were warm and inviting with a nice adults-only pool as well as a large family pool, and the putting greens were a nice addition. Burt, who runs the on-site water sports, was great - took us on a very enjoyable 2 hr jet ski tour out past 7-mile bridge and to a small key to explore. The on-site restaurant was very good - from the conch chowder to the seafood specials to the key lime dessert . Across the street is a very good cuban sandwich shop - just walk across the street and bring breakfast or lunch back to your own deck to enjoy. Since the units have full kitchens, it was easy to handle breakfasts or late night snacks. Within a couple of miles is Sunset Grill - recommended to us by Burt, and the Keys Fishery Market has hands-down the best fish sandwiches ever. There are plenty of options for fishing, snorkeling, etc nearby.

Room Tip: Units 8-12 are good - not behind the pool and not hidden behind the beachfront houses - I would not...

I would like to commend the staff of Tranquility Bay. Everyone from those first greeting you at front desk to housekeeping, servers at Butterfly Cafe, Tiki Bar, and Bob Bauersachs their General Manager make you feel welcome. You have a real sense of being invited into paradise.

From the booking through check out what a great experience. We had a beach front room and it over delivered in every way. The entire unit is new and well maintained. The views from the master bedrooms are postcards! We took plenty of photos to share with our family and friends. Grounds are kept immaculate with visible workers cleaning all the time. We rented a jet ski while there and had a great time. The restaurant is top notch....try the key lime pie....it is delicious. Amazing place to stay. We will be back. Thank you Sara in booking and Otis at the front desk for your great service!

Room Tip: Beach front is the way to go!
