“Tranquility @ Hampton Inn & Suites in Islamorada, Fl”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

The location of this hotel is fabulous! The oceanfront is designed to make you feel like you are on a tropical island. There are palm trees with hammocks strung between them and of course plenty of lounge chairs looking out over the gorgeous clear atlantic ocean. The hotel is tastefully decorated with wonderful Key West/Tropical rythms playing in the lobby area. The pool is large and heated and they have a hot tub within a tiki hut.

The complimentary breakfast and coffee all day are wonderful. The staff is welcoming and very friendly. There is an outdoor tiki bar and restaurant to enjoy some food and a refreshing drink while lounging by the pool or on the beach.

If you are on a high floor you can not only se the atlantic ocean but also the gulf bay as Islamorada is a narrow strip of land amongst the Florida Keys.

The standard rooms are a good size and the suites are large compared to other Hampton Suites. I only wish they would renovate the rooms with new carpet and furniture. We have stayed here every winter for the past 4 years. The lobby and breakfast area were renovated upon our return in Jan. 2013. The furniture in the guest rooms was the same just the cushions were replaced on the couch and club chair. The coffe and end tables need to be replaced as they are old and worn.

Other then the furniture we love this place and are returning again in Jan. 2014. If you are a frequent traveler It pays to be a Hilton Honors Member! Extra Perks and upgrades too - especially if you are a Gold or Diamond Member!

.

Room Tip: High Floor closer to oceanfront will give you a grand view of the atlantic and gulf bay.

The entire Staff at this hotel are wonderful! Jessica, Chavone at the Front Desk were great. Alan in Sales as well as the GM were extremely friendly and attentive. The on-site Outback Tiki Bar is wonderful and the staff there also are great. In addition, visit the gift shop lovely items at a non-gift-shop price!

I like Hamptons, but this was a beach hotel and the quality usually goes down in a beach hotel. Nothing special. rooms needed to be updated...especially the bathroom. Breakfast was good. Access to the water was excellent. Pool was cloudy.

Do not stay at this hotel with your family. Sofa bed is low quality. Dead Reef. Even though the reef is dead the jetski and paddle boat rental is more expensive than other parts of the keys. You get a lot more for less elsewhere. We check out early.

PRO'S: Location is great; tiki bar was good; staff was nice; rooms were clean; breakfast buffet was good; beach area kept clean; gift shop was nice, pool area clean. Having the Outback Steakhouse on site was very convenient & food was great, but should have been open past 10:00. Go to mm 81.5 and eat at Islamorada Fish Company, you won't be disappointed---it's awesome !!!

CONS: Bathtub very, very slippery; bedroom should have had a ceiling fan since it had no windows, or balcony door, and bigger beds ~ can't remember the last time I slept in a double bed! Even though there were two of them, a double is too small for 2 adults used to a queen bed!

Our experience at this hotel was absolutely enjoyable! Chavone at the front desk is professional, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating! EVERY MEMBER of the staff was polite and friendly. There was not one place in this hotel we went to that someone did not ask us if there was anything else we needed. If we ever get a chance to go back to Islamorada again, we will definitely stay at this hotel!
