"Great place for non-smoker."
Great place to stay. It is 100% smoke free on the property. So if you are a smoker it may not be the place for you. It has no designate smoking area and a $500 fine for smoking anywhere on the property.

"Tranquility bay is the correct name... it delivers"
We were delighted to be given a nice upgrade at registration. It was a timeshare but in pristine condition. The unit was a delight in every way.

"Tropical Oasis"
The staff is friendly and very helpful. We arrived earlier than the 4PM check in time and they allowed us to go ahead and enjoy the facilities and the grounds of the resort. They also alerted house keeping when we arrived and we were informed as soon as our waterfront townhouse was ready. We were checked in and fully settled in to our tropical oasis before 2pm (less than 30 minutes after we arrived). The hotel staff was very accommodating to requests and willing to direct you to anything you needed. The beach is beautiful although it does have areas of sea grass on the bottom. They have a few beautiful pools and one of them is for adults only. The bar staff is very imaginative and willing to experiment and make you any drink they can even if it is not on the menu. The onsite butterfly cafe restaurant is pricey but the food is made from scratch, hand prepared, and one of a kind. The waterfront townhouses are more private than the beach front ones and look over a bay/dock area. This area use to be an old dolphin rescue and rehab center, so it's very interesting. The only issue we had with the townhome is that only have enough plates, bowls, forks, spoons, and knives for service of 6 and not anything extra. Also the cook wear is the bare minimum we had 3 different pots/pans in total. So please if you are traveling with a family do yourself a favor and bring paper plates and plastic cutlery.

"Tranquility Bay Lives Up To It's Name"
Tranquility Bay lives up to its name. This is the best resort in the Keys. There is no need to go any further south. It is a gorgeous resort without tons of tourist and traffic. It is lush and well manicured. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. You have the best seat in the house for the sunset. You must eat at the Butterfly Cafe. They had the most scrumptious food and amazing service. We tried to extend our stay but they were booked. We cannot wait to go back!

"Very nice hotel except front desk staff."
The hotel is beautiful, very nice restaurant and pool area. The rooms are fantastic. The only negative comment I have about this hotel, is that the staff at the front desk are not welcoming at all, are not friendly, not polite, and don't even ask about how is your stay. I have been going to this resort for three years now, and I keep encountering the same issue that the staff at the front desk are not welcoming on arrival and not polite on departure. This needs to be handle by Mangement. We are looking for other hotels similar to this, because staff at front desk are not welcoming. And it would be nice to feel welcome. Hope this helps managements change that.

"Overpriced for the amenities."
Nice location. There is no real beach here. The beach is mainly a water sports renting area. The Tiki bar concept in the Keys is a pure rip-off. Food and drinks are overpriced. The restaurants are very expensive for the quality of food. The 7 mile bridge is nice with a small veterans park area on the west end.

The Condos were amazing! Spacious, clean, balconies from the living room and master bedroom were well appointed with seating areas. Had a washer and dryer in the unit as well as a fully-equipped kitchen. The maids even changed the second bedroom from 2 twins into a king bed. Definitely would recommend this 2 bedroom unit for families or friends.

"Terribly uncomfortable beds"
The outdoor facilities and grounds are beautiful and the rooms are clean and nicely decorated. However the beds were extremely uncomfortable - this opinion was shared by the 3 of us in the room. The thin mattresses sit on wooden frames without box springs. They sagged in the middle and made loud creaking noises.

"No closets unless you are in a premium room"
Our room was fine with one glaring exception, there was no closet. No hangers. No place to hang anything. When I called the front desk to ask where the closet could be hiding I was told only the premium rooms had them. Hum, that's a first for me. The beach and waterfront area is lovely and a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. The front desk staff was efficient but lacked any warmth. That's fine in a motel maybe but the staff at a resort should make more of an effort. One issue that we noticed is that there is no laundry service unless it's a cottage but we were told by the front desk that there is no laundry mat in all of Marathon, yikes!

This stay was among the very best I've ever experienced. The grounds were stunning. The rooms were well-appointed and so comfortable and lovely -- it truly felt like coming "home" (only better!) at the end of the day. Beautiful pools, beaches, buildings, landscaping. Such a peaceful reprieve from the hustle of the "real world". Love, love, loved it!

"Leave the rules for kindergarten"
Our friends arrived before we did. When they checked in, the staff were rude and insulting to our friend. They were more focused on review of all of their "rules" and "fines" for rule violation than care of accommodation. Our friends walked to the Tiki Bar ... just checking out the property. Most seats were empty, but they were quickly informed that they were not allow to sit in one of their chairs unless they were ordering food or a drink. Maintenance had to be called right away on two different issues in the room. My husband, who the trip was planned for, upon hearing of their experience upon their arrival, suggested that we find somewhere else to stay. My personal experience was that the office staff seemed that any questions or request for assistance seemed a major inconvenience to them. We did meet two nice staff people while we were there. The beach area is on the bay. Although being by the water was nice, there was a stench. Took a swim and then I smelled really bad. The property was nice, but with all the "rules" and the lack of positive customer service, it was not a positive experience. Expectation was a "laid back" atmosphere in the Keys, but what we found was the opposite. Very disappointed!!!

"Not A Good Value / Inefficient"
This is a nice hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful. My issue with this hotel is that it is pricy and the room is very inefficient. As many travelers do, my wife and I brought our laptop and iPad. The light in the room was mediocre. There was a desk of sorts in one corner, but there was no light and no electrical outlet. The room itself was very large, which was fine (more that we needed) but it was of no use. There was one stuffed chair in the room, where there should have been some sort of seating arrangement for the guests to relax and read or watch TV.

"What a Find!"
Booked this as a last minute trip down to the Keys. We were pleasantly surprised that the property and room were exactly as pictured on the website. Beautiful property with great private beach. Rooms were immaculate. We stayed in room 6. The turtle hospital in right next door. The only drawback is the turtle hospital does daily tours that can be clearly heard. I would recommend stayin on the other side of the property. Other than that, it was an amazing experience, we didn't want to leave!

"Beautiful place to stay"
This place and it grounds area were beautiful. However, we didn't get a good nights sleep the whole time we were there. The beds were as hard as rocks and there no curtains at the bedroom windows. There were street lights right outside our window and it made the room so light that we could not sleep. We told management about it. Other than that it was a wonderful place to stay, all new interior, appliances and furniture.

"Nice property but way too over priced"
This is a very beautiful property. The staff was very nice but didn't seem overly concerned. The Butterfly restaurant was a very nice dinner but way too overpriced. When I spend $300 for dinner it should be a memorable meal and it was just ordinary. The room did not have any soap and after repeated requests we got a few bars on the third day. We had workers in our room when we arrived who were upgrading the wifi internet. This will be a good thing whenever it gets upgraded because the existing wifi was terrible. The workers must have had some problem because they were there again on day 2. Finally we asked them to come back after we checked out. The workout room was nothing special with only a couple of machines and ofcourse one of them was out of order. Basically, this hotel was overpriced in every way for what we got from the food to the accommodations. When I spend 4 star $$$ is expect for 4 star accommodations. That all said, the property is very beautiful. We would probably not stay here again.

"Very clean"
Went on a family vacation. Unit was very clean upon arrival but housekeeping was sporadic after that. Had to track down towels. The resort is in a beautiful spot but back porches are lined up together so there was no privacy whatsoever when out there. Master bedroom was large and lovely but other 2 rooms barely had room to walk around the beds. The unit slept 6 so there were only 6 plates, 6 forks, 6 glasses, etc. Seemed very stingy and silly for such a pricey place. Again very clean, no bugs, no mold, would recommend for that reason but plan to look elsewhere for future stays. Also no smoking policy but maintenance men were smoking in parking lot.
