La Tranquila is beautiful. The foyer is like walking into a movie set. Service is attentive. The room might be the coolest place I've ever stayed (jacuzzi bath, double rain shower heads with body jets, balcony with plunge pool, and all the modern technology available with regards sound and lighting); the food is great (high quality, high end; no burritos); and the grounds and swimming pools are like nothing I've seen. Stunning. Within 10 minutes of arriving, we were contemplating our return, and our usual policy is to never go somewhere twice.
However, it's quiet. Really quiet. We loved being able to hear nothing but the crashing of the waves on the beach, and being the only ones drinking cocktails in the various pools (which are AWESOMELY designed for both swimming and lounging). If you crave the company and noise of other human beings, you will go crazy very quickly (and we don't want you here anyway!). The beach is long and empty, but could do with a bit of tidying. And outside of the hotel there is NOTHING.
That being said, if you're looking for a beautiful, isolated retreat from the world, this might just be the place for you. Just make sure you like (really like!) the person you're travelling with...More
