“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Beautifully appointed townhouse style apartments, with beautiful fixtures and fittings. Extemely comfortable beds. Apartment had balconies off both bedrooms and a patio leading straight to the beach. The onsite restaurant was very nice. The staff were very freindly which made our stay all the more enjoyable. The pool area was large and well kept.

Room Tip: I recommend an apartment with an ocean view.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We spent a week at Tranquility Bay, in a 2 bedroom waterview villa. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and very tropical looking - especially the lagoon pool. The staff was very friendly, and the entire place from the villa to the pool are extremely clean. Keep in mind, Marathon is not Key West; meaning there isn't much night life in the area. The upshot is its fairly quiet after dark. They have an onsite bar, but we only went there once due to the outrageous prices. The onsite restaurant has very good reviews, but we did not try it out. They have an area to rent boats and jet skis right there onsite, and we had a blast with those. If they aren't busy they tend to let you ride longer. One of the best parts every night, it has absolutely gorgeous views of the sunset over the gulf.

Overall,It's great place to go if you want to relax. For activities though, you're going to have to do some driving.

For us (3 Adults, 2 kids, 1 baby), a 2 bedroom was a bit snug for sleeping, but we were able to do 3 to a bedroom. I'd opt for a 3 bedroom if you have that many. Besides, they only give you supplies (towels, silverware, etc) for 4. For a moment I thought it was going to be a problem that we had more when I requested more towels. If your staying with kids, I highly recommend choosing one of the rooms around the family pool. It's just so convenient. Also, there's not much to be gained by getting a water front villa. There are no waves to listen to, and it's not as if you can walk out the front door into the water (there are rocks except in the designated swimming area).

We searched the Keys to find a perfect place to stay and we found it with Tranquility Bay. We arrived to find the accommodations exactly as pictured (if not nicer). The units were nicely maintained and the staff was excellent and very accommodating. We drove to Key West for dinner one evening and fished near the Seven Mile Bridge. The pool was very nice and we were a short walk to the Tiki Bar which was also fun! We were extremely happy and would definitely recommend Tranquility Bay!

This is a beautiful resort with well kept units. A very great pity that after travelling thousands of miles and having requested a quiet unit, we were given a unit backing on to the main road where you can hear the rumbling of the traffic. The following day asked to be moved and Otis obliged with another unit nearer the sea. Did spoil our stay after a long journey! Still fail to understand why we were allocated that unit when we made the request.

Would otherwise have been a much needed relaxing stay!

We stayed at this Resort/ Town house type, and we were surprised with this accommodation. The price was right. The place is fully equipped, comfy, clean and very pretty. The only little thing I found not right was the sofa that had stains probably for the high traffic of guests.
The resort have two pools, one designated for adults and the other for kids. It have a private beach with a tiki bar, and a small deck for those who love fishing.

The accommodations were superb. Everything is well kept, clean, and in like new condition. We had a very large group, so we rented three townhomes. We had a great time! It is very well located, at the foot of the seven mile bridge. Just a short ride to Bahia Honda, and their beautiful beaches. Not too far from Key West either. Definitely recommend it!

The grounds are beautifully maintained at Tranquility Bay Resort. Very tropical setting with privacy on your own upper and lower porches. We enjoyed 2 dinners at the onsite restaurant, Butterfly Cafe, however it is very pricy compared to other similar restaurants in the keys. They automatically add a 20% tip onto your bill, and of course you don't find that out until your bill is brought to you already made out. Food was delicious.
The only problem we had was getting towels on a daily basis. The last 3 days we were there we had to ask for hand towels, and washcloths. Housekeeping told us they were out of them, so I called the office. The office said housekeeping would bring them to us. Never got them. The last night we went to the office & were told housekeeping would bring them, again nothing was brought to us. Very disappointing service for such a nice resort. We also stayed a full week, and were supposed to have complete townhouse cleaning, and linen changes (beds etc), and that never happened. Overall, we liked Tranquility Bay, but for the price the service should have been top notch, and it wasn't.
