While the pictures on the internet make this look like a small boutique hotel, it is really a complex of several hotel areas. However, lots of pools give the feel of a small hotel - each building surrounding a pool. I enjoyed sitting outside by myself during the evening reading by the pool. The hotel is nicely redone and feels...

We chose the Tranquilo because it looked so calm and peaceful, despite being just a block away from Fort Lauderdale’s beach. After ten days in Walt Disney World we figured we would need somewhere quiet for a while, and were not disappointed. We stayed in a first floor room with one king and one queen sized bed, in adjoining rooms....

We had the king one bedroom suite and felt like we had a palatial suite. The resort was so lovely we felt like staying and staying. The pool was warm and divine, and the resort was only 2 blocks from the Vistamar beach. The staff was extremely friendly and always available to help.

We recently stayed at the Tranquilo for a couple of nights before our cruise and a couple of nights after to accommodate our flight times. The place was very clean and a great location for walking to the beach front, where local bars, restaurants and shops await. I found the staff very helpful whenever we needed any assistance too

A group of 4 girls needed a little break from the cold weather so we decided to head to Fort Lauderdale.

We stayed at Tranquilo for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the location was fabulous.

My time at this hotel was well worth it. Anthony at the front desk was extremely helpful and informative. He showed me around and he even went out of way to make sure my room was clean and comfortable. All I have to say is check it out, you will not be disappointed.
