Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort

Reviewed July 15, 2013

Just back from another wonderful stay at Tranquility Bay. TB is one of our favorite get-aways because it combines the luxury of a high end resort with the the old laid-back flavor we love in the Keys. The townhouse accommodations are large enough to bring the whole family and/or 3 couples; amazing pools-including an adult only; beach,Tiki bar, the best restaurant on Marathon (Butterfly Cafe),beautiful landscaping and fabulous views. We've stayed on many other Keys, but like the Marathon location because you can go to crazy Key West in about an hour, or to Islamorada in about the same. The charter fishing is excellent, and if you have guests who want to spend the money to swim with dolphins, the Dolphin Research Center is right there. Snorkling at Bahia Honda is 15-20 minutes.

Room Tip: We like unit 22 for easy parking, steps from the pool, close to the restaurant, and from the upstair...

Our family rented three 2-bedroom units for four days in early July 2013. We have stayed there before and this trip was another wonderful experience for all of us. The staff, especially at the Front Desk, were very helpful with local dining advice.

Room Tip: Units #45-46-47-48-49 have porches that are more private than some of the other units and so we pref...

Stayed 2 nights in July based on the reviews. Rooms was very nice with upstairs bedrooms, kitchen, living room and powder room downstairs. Beds were great. Beach was just ok. Did not eat at their restaurant. Liked the parking arrangement, right by your door. A little expensive but worth it. Drove to Key West from here, about 1 hr.

No concierge, no baggage help, terrible housekeeping, dirty pool for kids, clean pool for adults (but full of kid), everywhere the pretensions of luxury and none of the required care or attention to detail. A very pretty place which uses its its appearance to misrepresent itself as a luxurious. The basic untruthfulness of the website is a scandal.

The hotel runs on the absolute minimum of staff, which is great for profits, to be sure. less good for customers. what you will find is that almost all the personal services are organized directly with local businesses.

If you need to go down to the keys, stay at Hawks Cay up the road, and get what you pay for.

Room Tip: avoid the houses directly on the beach if you want to get ay sleep.

Life is good here. We have stayed multiple times for both business and pleasure, and were so excited to return back to our "home away from home". It is so welcoming to see the same staff time and time again, and we like that they are starting to recognize us!

This time, the resort was almost 100% full, but it still had the same sense of tranquility and serenity. There were a few more kids and (rude) adults than we had seen on our last trips, but we chalked it up to the time of year. If you are looking for the type of vacation to stay away from everyone... Traveling in July to the Keys is probably not the best idea.

It is important to note: the resort is expanding their grounds. It is really great for us to see the efforts of communication the staff takes to ensure their guests are informed. A job well done. Today, we checked out and were not effected greatly, but the power had to be shut off for up to three hours this morning. There were two managers that came to our door prior to inform us of the incident and "warn" us ahead of time. Lucky for us, we had a meeting in Key West by 10am... But it was nice to see that they cared so much to personally hand-deliver letters to each unit. You don't see that at a Ritz.

We love you guys... Nothing a minor power stint can't keep us from! We have already booked with Enjoli and will be back in a few months!

What a trip!!! Stayed in Unit #67 and it was very relaxing. The unit was very clean and nicely furnished. This made it easy to relax and unwind. The grounds are extremely manicured. The pool(s) are amazing. Once again, easy to relax with a cool drink, watch for iguanas and cool off. Location, location, location.....this place is in the middle of the Keys so you are not far from anything. Can't wait to go back.

My family and several friends have had great trips to Tranquility Bay. Stayed in unit 67 and 74. Always clean and well maintained. Management folks are extremely courteous and helpful. The grounds are clean and fun to use. It's like going to the Carribbean but not leaving the U S .





















Room Tip: Great! Clean and well furnished
