What's not to love about this place? The location is phenomenal and it is so cheap! All the big hotels on the main drag charge $300+ per night, and we got our room for $199 at Tranquilo. Split that between 4 adults and it is dirt cheap!
I will admit, the rooms are a touch sterile, but they suited me just fine. It looks like an Ikea show room. Everything is new and very clean. I kind of liked the simplistic, laid back style. The room was VERY big, also, which was great. We didn't make use of the kitchenette, but the fridge did come in handy. One weird thing we noticed is that one of the beds was smaller than the other. The room was supposed to have two queens, but one was a queen and one was a double. It was not a big deal, but it was definitely noticeable as the double bed didn't even fill the bed frame. We thought it was strange, but it didn't really matter to us. The water pressure in the shower left something to be desired, but other than that, I don't have much to complain about.
Tranquilo is 2 blocks from the beach. Literally a five minute walk. Not to mention there are TWO pools at the hotel. There is a standard rectangle pool in the middle of the courtyard (our room opened up right onto this pool, how glorious!), and there is a lagoon style pool at the front of the hotel. We didn't use this pool, but it looked really nice as well. I personally loved the pool in the courtyard.
Staying at Tranquilo was one of the highlights of my trip to Florida. It was clean, close to the beach, and the price was right. I would highly recommend this hotel!
