Very nice and newly renovated. Great stay for the price, very clean. The bed was comfortable and the area is quiet. Small boutique hotel, will definitely stay there again next time in the area. Friendly staff!

At first my wife and I didn't know what to expect. We checked in earlier and told us our room wasn't quite ready and we have to kill a few hours before we could get in. SO we took in the sites and enjoyed a nice lunch. When we came back we had wait a few minutes to get in...

At first, you're amazed by your room size. I got a one-bedroom apartment, plus a king sized bed in the living area.The actual bedroom had a pungent smell to it, so I opted to just close that off, and used the king bed. Everything is decorated nicely with Ikea stuff. The bathroom blinds valance kept coming off. Kitchenette does not...

Our room had two king size beds, two sofas (an "L"), stove top and full size fridge with respectable counter space and everything we needed from large bowls and nice cookware to wine glasses and a corkscrew. Everything is very Ikea style, very crisp and modern and clean. There are 2 pools, the office front is warmer! The office staff...

mghdi1120, Thanks for your review. Tranquilo offers large rooms with pull out sofa beds, making it easy for guests traveling with kids or large parties.

Neat and renovated! A very pleasant stay for the price. Close to the beach and main attractions in FLL. Front desk staff very courteous and cheerful. Main building is prettier that the front one, but still very nice.

Our stay at Tranquillo was certainly memorable. Since I got less than two hours of sleep, I can remember every detail! It began as a seemingly pleasant one-night stopover for us on our way to another destination. We were greeted by a charming receptionist named Olivia who was polite and helpful. We were supplied with a parking pass and found...

Booked 2 rooms over a month ahead and had asked for adjoining rooms as we were an adult family travelling together. This did not happen and we were given rooms some distance apart. Rooms were big and clean but did have key locks which was a bit weird in 2015. Comfy bed. Car parking is a scam.....one night we couldn't...

I'm conflicted about this motel/hotel scene. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The rooms were clean, and there were some cute updates like fun furniture and modern sinks. But, then suddenly, it falls short: You're handed a real key at check-in--something that doesn't make us customers feel secure. (come on, Tranquilo--the 1960's called and wants their copy-able and non-secure...

Midland, Michigan
Reviewed 3 April 2015

Found hotel on booking.com and thought it looked pleasant enough. Did enjoy that our room had a kitchenette so we could prepare our own food. Also hotel was very quiet! A bit pricey in my opinion and I do believe for that price parking should be included ( separate fee of 10.00) but very close to beach which was awesome!
