This little hotel was perfect. Clean, spacious room, three pools, courteous staff, great location, and a fantastic price. Upon arrival our front desk clerk Jazzmen was very lively and explained the few rules that the place has. Our room was way bigger than what the pictures showed on the booking website and the pictures definitely don't do the place justice....

This was my first visit to Ft. Lauderdale, and I stayed at a charming mid-century cottage resort complex, in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale, recommended to me by my friend Steven Gonley. The location was ideal for my needs, close to the gorgeous beaches, shopping and vibrant nightlife. Orlando's restaurant called the Village Cafe, with it's outdoor dining was perfect,...

We received a super welcome on arrival, with lots of helpful information. The room was enormous. Two King beds, sofa and chair, dining table and chairs, and an excellent kitchen area. Even had two, new flatscreen, televisions. The bathroom was small but still very useable. Everything was glean and in excellent condition. The swimming pool was just down the stairs,...

The hotel was totally okay. Clean, everything worked well, nice staff. But nothing above the average. Also I didn't like the location so much, there is almost nothing on walking distance and as I have no car I didn't like it. Well not the hotels fault, but if you are in my situation I would choose another location. The beach...

Needed a place off season for a week long business trip. Tranquilo was available at good rates and found the accommodations really nice. Coffee service only but nice pools and close to beach. Staff helpful. Charge for parking but reasonable.

I stayed here and was surprised at the quality of the rooms, they were on the small side but for the price this is what I would have expected.... The rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable, the pool doesn't look the best but enjoyable and the location is a bit of a walk to the strip... I would although recommend...

It's now the 3rd time I've stayed these apartments and it's still a really great place to stay. Two swimming pools which are great if you want to hang out and sunbath as they get full sun all day. Plenty of sun beds around the pools so your never struggling to get a bed. It's also very quiet which again...

Great location, to pool, beach, cruise port, shopping, airport and food. The room was ok, very dusty and the light fixture did not work in bathroom and the water didn't go down the tub. The free coffee in the morning was a nice touch. Rooms were large. For a family to come here for a week the full size kitchen...

Stayed here before a cruise, and decided to book it for once we got back from the cruise as well as it was a lovely hotel. Facilties are good, room and decor all very modern. The pools were all clean and very nice for a swim. Free beach towels and deck chairs can be used and taken down to the...
