“Motorcycle trip to Keys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

Three of us on motorcycle trip stayed overnight. Nices property in the area. Drinks and food a little high, but you do have to realize where you are. We had a three bedroom suite with full kitchen overlooking gulf. Would be get place to spend more than one night. Staff very helpful and friendly. We have stayed three or four different places in the Keys this was by far the nicest.

Room Tip: All I can say is four to six ask for room 87, you won't be disappointed. It may sleep 8 with 2...

What a gem we found in Marathon! This was our first time to the Florida Keys and we literally stumbled upon the fantastic Tranquility Bay! Our family rented (2) 3 Bedroom condos - both of which are stunning, new appliances (stainless steel) washer/dryers, tv's in almost every room, 2.5 bathrooms, bathtubs for the kids, wonderful front/back and upstairs porches with adirondack chairs and a huge pool that is mostly shallow all throughout! The beach is so/so - depending on the seagrass situation it was great for the little kids but for more general family fun we traveled south about 20 min to Bahia Honda State Park where we found awesome beaches with crystal clear waters! The Butterfly Cafe on property at TB was fantastic, we ate both in the restaurant and used the take away service and all three times the food was fantastic! Also they have great Gluten Free selections which proved very helpful for many of our travelers. There are water sports rentals available at the beach, making it very convenient for the more adventurous part of our group while the rest of us just lounged by the Tiki Hut and had mid day drinks. All in all it was a wonderful vacation - the only complaint I have is that they offer great week long deals but the week is only "5 nights" with the 3 hour drive from Miami Int. Airport - you basically lose a day each way allowing for only 4 days of fun in the sun and for many it's a long trip for only 4 days - I would love to see a 7 night package available in the future! Our family will be back for sure!

Room Tip: the water view rooms are so close to the beach - save the $$ - also check with the front desk before...

There´s not a single word I could say against this hotel: beautiful, comfortable, clean, polite staff, excellent restaurant...
Our room was closer to the highway than to the beach, but even so it was very quiet. The room seemed to be brand new, beautifully decorated, very spacious, facing a smaller pool. Miss it already!

Stayed at this resort for five nights, Beach front unit with two other women. Very relaxing lovely unit better for a couple and children not great for four adults, second bedroom is very small. The grounds are well maintained the beach has sea grass, as do all of the beaches in the area. Tends to smell like rotten eggs. NOT the hotels fault they tried to clean the area did not help the smell. Would return if we ever get to the Keys again. Spent the final days in Key West at the Westin Marina.

Room Tip: Stay away from the units close to their beach the 40's beach front not a good choices. Try the o...

Rented a 3 bedroom beach house on the waterfront.... was all the better as the property had a short term promotion. Facility is super clean. We attended the larger of the 3 pools-- nicest pool & environs I have ever experienced---
As with their cafe the staff are very friendly & accommodating-- early check in.

Room Tip: Choose one of the 2 or 3 bedroom on the water

Had the pleasure of staying here February 4th with my brother and sister-in-law. We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom beach cottage and the view from the master balcony was indescribable!!!! Nice and quiet, very clean. Wish we actually had more time to stay. Compared to places in Key West, the price was excellent for what you got. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms, but a gulf coast view is spectacular!

late january review. nice big room without a closet. we stayed in a garden style room. we had a nice little pool near us and we were close to the main pool. the beach area was loaded with sea weed and grass which made it impossible to wade into the water. the grass could not be removed due to environmental concerns. this would have been nice to know before we stayed. the tiki bar also closed too early at dusk. the butterfly cafe restaurant at the resort was excellent. nice place but a little pricey for what you get.

Room Tip: garden style rooms have no view of the ocean but are a good size. no closets however.. they are stil...
