Located in Marathon Key, Tranquility Bay Beachfront Hotel & Resort is a secluded, oceanfront retreat in the Florida Keys that treated us to a luxurious tropical paradise in the heart of America’s Carribean.
Lush gardens surround the hotel. There are towering coconut palms everywhere and the beach is really beautiful. It is the kind of place that puts you into quick holiday mode within minutes of your arrival! The management is really nice and helpful, too. Anytime you need it, they will give you bottle of water.
We stayed in Room 204, located on the second floor of the property overlooking the small swimming pool. The ambience is really restful, especially because the surroundings are very green. It takes absolutely no time to easily sink into your tropical holiday!
This is primarily the magic of Florida Keys. The sparkling waters, the year-round temperate and tropical climate, the many opportunities for fun on land or in the ocean, the many attractions around town – you come here and all your stresses just melt away. What a good feeling!

Tranquility Bay Beachfront Hotel & Resort has a restaurant and bar but we did not eat here. The breakfast is not included in the accommodation but everything is very near from here since it is located in Marathon.
But if you cannot be bothered to step out and eat, you can try the on-site restaurant, Butterfly Cafe. It is popular for seafood and the use of local ingredients. It has a seasonal menu and a special menu for children. Gluten-free options are available, too.
