Absolutely loved the butterfly café. Amazing food. I wish they would serve breakfast. The suite itself was OK. The flooring and the furniture was older and not cleanly. I was hoping for a nicer facility. I felt like I needed to be wearing slippers or flip-flops while walking around and I felt like I needed to Clorox wipe the facility.

Can't say enough good about this stay. It was wonderful. It's a beautiful place, plants all over. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was just the greatest. I would recommend this to all.

The property is pretty. It was in active repairs while we were there. Our villa smelled freshly painted. Our decking was repaired while we were there. We loved our villa which enabled us to eat in for breakfast and lunch as it had a full kitchen. Our villa was close to the largest pool and the beach. The waterview rating was inaccurate as the overgrowth of plants in front of our decking and the tall beach grass obstructed same. It was very tranquil and lived up to its name. Kayaks and jet skis were easily available. Snorkeling trip to Sombrero Reef could be arranged with pick up at Tranquility but we traveled to the snorkeling boat company also recommended by them and were happy with price and tour company. Everyone was very friendly

The grounds are beautiful and well kept. All of the staff were helpful and a pleasure to talk to. We loved having both the beach, pools and Tiki bar available and easily accessible. Beautiful place to visit with family,we will definitely come back.

The grounds were beautiful and it was a very relaxing resort. The pools and beach area were very nice. Was a bit disappointed in the on-site food/drink options. No breakfast onsite, the restaurant was very expensive and too fancy for families, even the tiki was very expensive, $38 for a house pina colada and strawberry daiquiri.

The views from our cottage were amazing even though we weren’t directly on the beach! Beach always had enough room for anyone who wanted to spend time there. I do wish the restaurant was opened for breakfast but that is the only thing I can think of that could improve. But even that is not a big deal because there are plenty of places to eat like The Wooden Spoon!

They have a beautiful putting green - however - they say you can have the putter for 2 hours - they don't enforce it - so guests have no ability to use the facilities. Four out of five days they did not have putters available. I will never go back for this reason - ALONE.

Location on the Beach. Tiki Bar not open late enough. No frills in the room, no selections for morning beverages.
