The four of us arrived (2 adults and 2 teenagers) for a five-night stay at Tranquility Bay after staying in Miami and Key West for our family vacation over the 4th of July holiday week. We were happy to settle in for five nights but only to find out that the guest room, the 2nd bedroom, had two twin beds, but our email confirmation said it was a queen bed. So that was not great as our 20-year old son didn't fit well into a twin bed. Since they could not find us another cottage to stay in they reduced our room rate which was nice but still way more expensive than what we feel the over all value of the resort is. But Tranquility Bay is very expensive (more than we've paid at the Ritz Carlton) for what you get. The cottage was nice but nothing fancy. The master bedroom's king-size bed was amazing. The furniture in the family room facing the water on the main floor was not comfortable to relax in except for the couch which could have been longer for the room. We were in cottage 4 and what we loved about it was being able to walk down the steps of our deck and be right on the sand and with a lovely view of the bayside ocean. But it was next to the Turtle Hospital, and every hour or so you got to hear the microphoned lady give a 30-minute explanation of the turtles, which was annoying as you were relaxing in the sand...there is no beach, so don't expect to get into the water, unless you are doing a water sport. Actually there is a beach at the other end of the property but it was not inviting and we never saw anyone actually get in the water there. Tranquility Bay needs to address this beach issue to clean it up and make it more appealing. Our cottage did have a DVD player, but the front desk only have 5 or so DVD's to rent so make sure and bring your own or rent from a Redbox in Marathon. It was a PLUS to have a stackable washer and dryer in the cottage. The grounds are well kept and the maintenance staff was very quick to respond to our requests.

Room Tip: Beware if you choose cottages 1-5 they are right near the Turtle Hospital where you hear the microphone descriptions every hour which is annoying.

Tranquility Bay is a wonderful, peaceful place to stay IF you want peace, quiet and relaxation. It's on the bay side but has a wonderful kid pool and a separate adult pool. The rooms are very modern and clean and the 3-bedroom units are very functional for most families. The resort is very clean and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Excellent place for a family and/or reunion or other get-together.

This place is wonderful, the surroundings great. Me an my family visited Tranquility for a hole week and there was no problem what so ever. One of my sons is sitting in a wheelchair and there was not any problem at all, spacious rooms and large restroom with shower for handicaped. Having laundry in the house was perfect for us. The staff was eccellent.
We recommend everyone who is going to southern Florida about this hotel in Marathon. The best hotel we have visit so far. Thank you, we willl be back!

Not wanting to drive back to Miami after a day exploring the Keys, we decided to book a unit last minute at Tranquility Bay. We are sure glad we did! The lodging was spacious, clean and modern. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed ever! The balconies to enjoy the warm Florida air were welcoming set with chairs and tables. The pool was clean, beautiful and never crowded. As for the staff....I cannot say enough nice things. We found that our rental car had a dead battery the morning of our departure and the staff went OUT OF THEIR way to help us get the car started so we could enjoy our day. Thank you, Tranquility Bay! We will be back!

I came here for some much needed relaxation and was not disappointed! Even though there were many people staying here it was never noisy. Our townhouse condo was very clean and well furnished. The staff was eager to attend to any need that may arise and the Butterfly Café and Tiki Bar were fantastic. Do not miss the fabulous sunsets every evening. If you want to treat yourself to a wonderful experience choose this resort!
