Reviewed January 28, 2014

We just stayed at this resort for 4 nights and it truly was the vacation experience we had hoped for. Relaxing, beautiful...........we rented a townhouse which was immaculate - just steps from the white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. 2 pools - one for adults, one a family pool. Winter brings sea grasses to the beaches so we swam in the pools, but you can still get a suntan in lounge chairs on the beach. Surrounding landscape is spectacular. Only negative was price of food and drinks at the resort - we ate at local restaurants instead.

We stayed at Tranquility Bay in late January 2014 in a "water view " two bedroom, two and a half bath unit. This is a lovely, spacious resort and our accommodation was quite nice. The grounds are beautiful. The kitchen has everything one would need to prepare a meal as far as utensils, pots, pans, plates, bowls, silverware, etc. There's a full size refrigerator, stove, sink, dishwasher plus a washer and dryer hidden in a guest room closet on the second floor. The bathrooms are totally adequate with plenty of hot water and good water pressure but the bathrooms themselves are quite small. We found the property to be extremely quiet and the housekeeping staff friendly and efficient. The pool is beautiful and the beach area is nice and has a small bar open until dusk each day. This is a relaxed place with decks off each living room on the first floor and balconies off both second floor bedrooms where you can sit and read or have dinner or just have a drink. The entire property is 100% non-smoking which is wonderful. If you're in the middle Keys, Tranquility Bay is worth a visit and it's just a few minutes from Seven Mile Bridge as well.

Stayed in 3 bedroom villa with water view.

Positives: very spacious and nice villa, especially master suite was soo nice. Pool area is great, calm, secluded and large. Very luxurious and relaxing athnosphere overall.
Negatives: marathon is not a super exciting location, beach has severe issues with sea grass which made it not usable during our stay, villas have multiple verandas than cant be used/should not be used (not allowed to dry bathing clothes or store toys etc, no table so not possible to eat outside, no bbq on the property) which gives the whole property a deserted feel (or maybe tranquil feel...?). No high chair available which is pretty poor for a 3 bedroom family villa, this made our 18 month so having to eat standing by the sofa table which added both 1 and 2 stains on his clothes and the villas decor.

Overall a very nice stay at ok value for the fairly expensive rates.

We stayed 3 nights in one of the beautiful, new "Guestrooms". The special "Weekday Retreat" rate was excellent ($210 a night which included all taxes, etc). The new "Guestroom" buildings are in the back corner of the property and have their own small pool with comfortable lounge chairs. The landscaping makes you feel like your are in a tropical retreat. Our room was on the first floor, and I don't think there is an elevator to the second floor. We shared a porch with the room next-door (which didn't matter because the room was empty). The bed and furniture were EXTREMELY comfortable, and the room was beautifully decorated. The weather was chilly, so we didn't get to use either of the pools or the beach (darn). We spent 13 days driving the Keys, and this was the most luxurious place we stayed. I look forward to returning.

Room Tip: I don't think the second floor of the new "Guestroom" buildings have an elevator.

Excellent villas with private, first class grounds. Wife and four adult children had plenty of space to be together but not on top of each other. Friendly staff, nice beach and pool. so-so execrcise room.

Room Tip: 3 bedroom villas are excellent for a family retreat

We spent three nights in a garden room in one of the brand-new buildings on the property. The decor was so pretty - kind of a mixture of "shabby chic" and what I would decorate a beach house with (if I had a beach house!). Being brand new, the room was impeccable - you could even smell the fresh paint. The bed was super-comfy, and the room had two decks with Adirondack chairs on them (great for drinking coffee in the morning).

The grounds were gorgeous, and the pool was huge with tons of deck chairs and umbrella-covered tables. We ate lunch at the Tiki Bar - great sandwiches and pina coladas - and ate dinner at the Butterfly Cafe, which was amazing! Best scallop risotto EVER. The service was great at both places. The only issue we had is our first night there: we went to the Tiki Bar for a drink at 5 p.m. (they advertised being open until 6), but the bartender was closing early because it was "supposed to storm." (It didn't end up storming at all that night.)

Which reminds me: Tranquility Bay definitely doesn't cater to the late-night party crowd. If you're looking for wild nights, look elsewhere! But if you're looking for a tranquil, beautiful spot to spend some time in the Keys, Tranquility Bay is DEFINITELY the place for you. My husband and I will definitely stay there again on our next trip to the Keys.

Room Tip: No elevators, so request a first-floor room if you don't travel light

We spent one night in a tropical garden room. We paid 338.50 $ and seriously it wasn’t worth it. It was a normal hotel room, big and that’s it. The toilet was even leaking water from underneath and we could hear the noises from the room above which woke me up very early in the morning. I didn’t even find much “tranquility”.. People at the reception were not very friendly, I heard them getting irritated on the phone with a customer that couldn’t log in the wireless line and when we were leaving and I said we weren’t very happy the guy didn’t care at all, he just said “your total is 38.50” (since I prepaid 300 $) and I gave him 40$ he didn’t even have 1.50 $ to give me back in cash. Also check out is at 11.00 and between 9 and 11 the cleaning lady had knocked on the door twice. A part my disappointment the beach was nice and I believe they have beautiful apartments, but I can’t imagine the price!
