Let me start by saying Isabel at the front desk was amazing! We had been traveling all day and were so exhausted by the time we arrived to the hotel at 10:30 pm. Isabel welcomed us and even gave us suggestions for breakfast and lunch in the area, the stuffed pig was great breakfast!
Our room was on the beach and it was amazing location (room78)! We also ate dinner at butterfly cafe which was also very lovely and the food was great. Highly recommended. This was our honeymoon and we've already decided that we will be back again for our 1yr. Anniversary. Our recommendation is... GO!

My family and I just got home from a stay at Tranquility April 17th-23rd. We had never visited the Keys before. After three trips to Disney, our teenage kids decided for a more relaxing vacation this year. I found your hotel on Trip Advisor. I did about a year of research. I without a doubt picked the best place to stay in all the Keys!
From the second we walked in the front door, we were greeted with a friendly smiling face. They didn't even flinch when we told them we had 4 teenagers with us. As a matter of fact she told us of the many things they had for them to keep us busy. We flew in the day after the bombings from Boston. The stress and anxiety level of all us was very high. We also had friends who lost their son in the attack. Rest and Relaxation were at the top on our list for this vacation.
When we entered Townhouse 74, we were all incredibly happy with the accommodations. The unit was spotless, with state-of-the-art everything and the unit was huge. Our view was of the Tiki Bar and the sunset, need I say more?!
My son loved the fishing dock and we rented paddle boards, kayaks and jet ski's from Burt at the Boat Rental dock. Burt was so chill and wonderful. The pools were fun and the beach was just breathtaking. We even saw Dolphins 50ft off shore a couple of nights. The Staff that we interacted with were so friendly and helpful. We loved Margarita at the Tiki Bar. She served us endless amounts of Lava Flows! We only ate a Butterfly Cafe one night, but the food was delish. And our waitress, Lynn, was from Chatham, where we live. We had mutual friends!
I just wanted to let you know that we are already planning our trip for next year. Hopefully in #74 again. I would love to know if you have time share. (?) We didn't just fall in love with the Keys, but we all fell in love with Tranquility Bay. Thank you for an amazing and much needed vacation! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR FIVE STAR ACCOMMODATION & SERVICE....AT A GREAT RATE....FAMILY FRIENDLY WITHOUT A DOUBT

This lovely resort is a top facility for the Keys. Located centrally to great dining, dolphin research centre, turlte hospital and the famous 7 mile bridge. Nothing beats the location or the amenities.
It is not an inexpensive resort but you get what you pay for here. Beautiful lagoon style pool for families and very young children with the beach like entrance for little ones, a well stocked tiki bar on the gulf and beachy side for the more mature set. Another pool is closeby just for the adults.
Bar tenders were very friendly &cudos to Jeff who had a great sense of humour! The food at the tiki for lunch was also great and quickly served by friendly staff. The rooms or mini condos were well appointed, very clean and very suitable for families or couples either travelling together or alone. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit for 5 days and just loved the views. This facility is beautifully maintained, with all the lovely white picket fencing and decking around the lush tropical landscape. We dined at the lovely butterfly cafe for dinner and both my husband and I had a lovely dinner. Another couple we spoke with from Calif. said their filet was one of the best they had ever had. It maybe a bit expensive for very young families but great for a bit older ages. Please don't compare this restaurant to the Keys Fisheries, they are not in the same league at all. Butterfly cafe is fine dining. Keys Fisheries is great but...picnic table dining gulfside and very casual ! Not to be missed.
This resort is lovely, rooms are spotless, a great facility in all for everyone!

Room Tip: Young families may want to request poolside condos. #12-#30 but ask at desk

We just got back from Tranquility Bay after a week stay in April. This is our third year in a row and absolutely LOVE it! We stayed in #9 this year and love how close it is to the family pool and and beach. However, not so close that you have obstructed views from the greenery around the pool or noise. It is literally just steps away. We traveled with our young kids and this was very convenient. This home doesn't have a parking lot out front either so it is a little more private and peaceful. The second bedroom has a deck off of it which is uncommon for a 2 bedroom unit. The Butterfly Cafe is amazing and everyone should go at least once during your stay. All of the staff is super friendly and make every effort to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Our kids really enjoyed the large green area out back, right off of the living room to run and play with other kids they met. The Tiki Bar has great service as well and we usually went every evening for a drink while the kids played in the sand. This is the place to stay while in the Keys. We will be back very soon!

This secluded property with its own private beach, quaint grounds, and inviting pool areas makes for a lovely retreat. The no smoking policy is ideal for families and the onsite bar and restaurants are great for keeping within walking distance for a drink or two.

We enjoyed the townhome type feel of the rental unit and felt at home with the amenities provided. The beds were comfortable, the TV's and other electronics were updated and wifi internet was available. Using the kitchen was easy and the layout made sense.

The staff was a little stand-offish otherwise it would have received an excellent rating from me.

Room Tip: If you can get a waterfront location, I would. The sunsets are tremendous.

I will start by saying that this place was simply supposed to be a stop over to break up the monotony of driving from Miami to Key West. OMG, what a pleasant surprise! It started with Isabel at the front desk. She went above and beyond in welcoming us and making the experience that much better. It was more like a friend welcoming us in to her home.

We then went to the Tiki Bar to get some refreshments and watch the sunset. Unfortunately a huge cloud rolled in to block the sun, but Jay made the experience a pleasure. Gave some good advice for breakfast at the Stuffed Pig.

We then went to eat dinner at the onsite restaurant called The Butterfly Café. My first thought was a café? And while the prices are not what you would expect at a café, the experience went above and beyond. It started with Isabel seeing us and sharing an inside joke to make us laugh. Then Shaina our waitress took over and made us feel at home. The Café in the name sells it short. I had the best Filet Mignon, cooked perfectly, and the rest of our diners loved their food too.

My only regret is that we did not have more time to spend here. I hope that fellow Trip Advisor Enthusiasts heading this way read this and stay here. I mostly hope that Management from here read this and realize the treasures they have here, especially Isabel going above and beyond making us feel welcome.

We truly love tranquility bay, spacious accommodations, nearby shopping, we travel with small children and we are able to feel just at home. We have been coming back for 3 years, and will be returning this year again. It's a bit pricey, but again the accommodations are excellent. Pool area, beach area, etc very nice, and great for my family. Top of my list!

Room Tip: We ask for the 3bedroom, pool view. Close to pool and beach area. Great locations.
