Reviewed July 17, 2014

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. We had a great time and are very glad we chose to stay at Tranquility in Marathon. All of the staff were friendly, the room was top-notch and the property was beautiful! We will be going back in March. Note that the professional photos here really do represent the property and rooms.

This spot is great! I am very familiar with many spots in the Keys and in Key West. However, I had never booked with these folks before. I'll say this, while I never had before, I will now! The family and I had a great time. It's in the perfect spot and has the best of all the Keys has to offer. It's tranquil (just as the name states) yet really fun all the same time. Got a real kick out of the iguanas too (....they are totally harmless and no bother at all!). The accommodations were fantastic as was the service. A great spot for the whole family. We WILL be back!

Room Tip: Stayed in the three bedroom....was in a perfect spot, back almost faced the pool; pool only a few fe...

Family of four stayed four nights in a "Waterview 2 Bdr Cottage". The grounds were unbelievable. Pools were great. We didnt use the onsite tiki bar or restaurant, but will probably try the restaurant when we return.... and we will go back.

The beach is not so great... but you arent far from Sombrero beach or Bahia Honda. Those are the best beaches in the keys.

It is a little pricey, but better than any other place we've used in the middle keys. Like having a luxury condo with maid service.... they even did the dishes!

Kudos to tranquilty bay.

Room Tip: I dont know that its worth springing for the waterfront rooms... unless you want to sit on your po...

This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. We rented 3 houses for a week in July with 17 people in our family. Excellent accomodations! Resort houses are clean and very spacious. Family pool is gorgeous! Sunsets down at the tiki bar are the best I have ever seen! We will be back. This is truly paradise!

We enjoyed our stay at tranquility bay beach house July 9-14 We rented a two bedroom beachfront cottage #1 and we were two couples staying there. It's a beautiful resort the house was very clean and nice. We had no problems with the cleaning services or getting towels etc. We ate at the restaurant Butterfly cafe once where I had the grouper fillet and my husband the steak for desert I had their award wining key lime pie and my husband the toffee cake everything was excellent but expensive. We ate at TJ tiki bar once but ordered drinks to enjoy at the beach a lot. Both our meals and drinks were good I mostly got the Miami Vice and their Mojitos were good. We did water sports once paddle boarding. The beach is nice because there's a lot of fauna to see by snorkel and fish up close. The pool was nice I never found the adult pool until I was leaving so all along I was at the kids pool. Off site we went to the Dolphin Research center and a night fishing trip. I'd highly recommend this resort to famiLies and couples. I can't wait to got back.

This place is a little slice of heaven here on earth. The grounds are well maintained, the staff is courteous and helpful and the rooms are large and spacious and clean. The pool and island area are clean. Very little sea grass floating in private beach area and no sulfa smell like you will find at the state park beaches and other locations. The Keys get better and better the further down you go as far as beauty and the local surroundings. Marathon is a great half way if going all the way to Kay West. Lots of options right at the resort to do as far as water sports. We rented jet skis and the kids had a blast and were able to fish watch while three miles from shore, the water was so clear and crisp.

Room Tip: if you can afford the oceanfront, the garden views are just as pretty and you are only a few steps a...

This resort was great for our family to stay. Probably one of a couple resorts with kind of a beach in the keys. It's not swimable but our kids liked playing in the sand. If your going to the keys for beautiful beaches don't go. There aren't many. Anyway, the resort itself was great. Butterfly café was great as well as the beach bar.
