“Great staff and service at Tranquilo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

My wife and I really enjoyed our 3-nite stay at the Tranquilo in Ft.Lauderdale, FL.
Our room was large, comfortable and very clean and Danielle, Kimberly and other staff members
were very attentive and helpful, even after we left and flew back home and then realized we left
our money belt,etc. in the opened safe....and Danielle made arrangements to have it sent to us via USPS.
We highly recommend the Tranquilo to any one who is looking for great value and an enjoyable experience with easy access to restaurants, shopping and the beach and so on.
This hotel was much better than any hotel in South Beach we stayed at previously, with out the price-gouging tactics those South Beach hotels manipulate on the tourists.
It was very comforting to know there are still some nice hotels with nice staff at reasonable
costs available - I only wish there was a way to find more of them, similar to the Tranquilo!

Room Tip: ground floor room might be better for seniors although it is only a 2-level complex.

Lovely rooms in a quiet setting but very close to the beach. The staff on the front desk were consistently good and one in particular was outstanding. I'm mad I didn't get her name but she cared very much that our stay was a nice one. It's quiet and restful but it's a short walk down to the beach and some nice restaurants on the front. Would definitely stay here again and no hesitation in recommending it

Gallaghersontour,
We appreciate your review and your recommendation of Tranquilo! As you mentioned, the location is great. It's very close to the beach but just far enough away that guests can easily relax without the noise from the main strip. Thanks again for your review, take care, NBV

Unfortunately we only stayed in this place for one night but would have been comfortable here for a week! If you are looking to explore the East coast of Florida then this would be the perfect place to stay. The room was huge and an incredible price. There was living space, kitchen, king size bed in one area. Separate bathroom and another bedroom. Only 2 minutes walk to the beach.

In our 2 week Florida extravaganza starting in Tampa down the the keys and up to ft lauderdale this is my favourite hotel. It is a lovely design very calm and tranquil! Very well situated for the beach, also you can walk to The Gallery mall and Publix supermarket. Parking is excellent right outside. The room was spacious with a little kitchen. The outside pool area was clean and comfortable. I would definitely return and recommend this hotel.

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights during Thanksgiving 2013. This newly opened property was decorated very nicely, with contemporary furnishings ( most are from Ikea) the rooms are large, with a full size "living" area with couches, tv, and coffee table. Also has a kitchen stocked with dishes, toaster, microwave, utensils etc...and a dining table that seats 4. Bed was comfy, linens clean and crisp.TVs new and worked great (1 in living area and 1 by the bed) Although it was a little too chilly for me to swim while we were there, our 8 year old braved the chilly water and enjoyed the pool in front of our room complete with waterfall. (there is also another pool at the front of the hotel that some were lounging by and soaking up the sun.) Plenty of comfortable lounge chairs at the pool and each room has a small table and 2 chairs for relaxing outside your room. The staff was amazing, from the check in to check out. Just about a 2 block walk to Ft Lauderdale beach, and a bit further down some restaurants and bars. There were only a few hiccups during our stay, but didn't want to deduct a star because we really did love this hotel. Ill list them here:
1. The WiFi really sucked and didn't work the whole time we were there. Luckily our phones have unlimited data.
2. The sinktop in the bathroom is very small, so you cant really leave anything on the counter. While there is a small shelf high on the opposite wall, (Our daughter couldn't reach her toothbrush without our help) a wall shelf by the sink would be helpful.
3. There were very few outlets in the room for charging electronics. I would recommend bringing a power strip unless you want to have to do what I did, which is charge phone by the foot of the bed, laptop in dining area, and ipad in kitchen.

Room Tip: All rooms look out over the pool and it is on a very quiet street, so you can't really go wrong...

I met up with a US friend after a 14 day cruise and found the staff to be most helpful and went out of their way to accommodate your needs. There was a bit of a mix up with the booking (not by Tranquilo - an online accommodation booking site) and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us and managed to fix the mistake.

The rooms are large with comfortable lounge furniture, 2 flat screen TVs, a really nicely equipped kitchen, along with good linens. The property is clean and well maintained and is so much more appealing than "just another" highrise hotel where you have hundreds coming and going.

There's a couple of nice pools with sun loungers and beach towels. The hotel is a good location for anyone wanting to be near the beach, cafes and within walking distance to Galleria.

If I ever went back to Fort Lauderdale I would be very happy staying at Tranquilo.

Room Tip: There are no lifts so if you have a mobility problem I'd ask for a ground floor room. I only li...

We were supposed to stay for one night and ended up staying 2 nights before the cruise and coming back after the cruise for one more day.We didn't spend much time in our room though it was spacious and comfortable with kitchen and a small cosy pool outside.
The staff is awesome and they will make their best to make your wishes come true.Parking is free outside the hotel. The beach is just 5 minute walking.
We spent one entire day at Sawgrass Mills Outlet just a few miles away by car and another visiting the museum and gardens( bonnet museum) the then the city by taxi-boat.
When we first arrived I was not well impressed with the street and surroundings, kind of deserted but I soon changed my mind and I will definitely come again.

Room Tip: If you're travelling with luggage it´s better to stay next to the pool. We tayed there twice in...

Just minutes away from the beach, you can wake up to the ocean every morning!
