Management works hard to keep this hotel in tip-top condition. The pools are lovely and while there are some smokers because of the Euro clientele, there's always another pool if you find it bothersome. HUGE rooms with comfortable beds and great kitchenettes.

amysueny, Thanks so much for the kind review. Don't worry, we do not permit smoking inside the rooms but guests are welcome to smoke outside. Like you mentioned, there are 3 pools to choose from so guests can always find their comfortable spot at Tranquilo!

We booked this hotel (though I would call it a motel with kitchenettes) because we had no other options in such short notice. I dont know where to begin. The rooms are spaceous and clean. The bathroom is very dated and we were struggling getting hot water from the shower every day, many times having to shower cold. Now, the...

Aedks2014, We were sad to read your review. We do not have phones in the rooms but do offer cell phones at the front desk. We also have 24 hour security patrolling the Village. We've had a record number of visitors this year, and we're sorry that you had some noisy neighbors. Please give us a call next time you...

What a fabulous little hotel. Big super clean rooms. Exceptional customer service. If you like properties that are classic to the neighborhood, enjoy this one. Royal Palms for coffee & drinks great. Congratulations North Beach Village Resort - you are doing things right! Thanks especially to Olivia, Ray, Tedy, Andrew, Juan, Denice. And Par. Kudos!!! Hope to see you soon.

Nice big, clean room and a friendly and attentive staff. 2 block walk to the beach. Reasonably priced. Would definitely stay there again. The location provides some distance from the spring break crowd which seemed to be more concentrated about a mile south, so it was a pretty quiet hotel as well.

clifford f, Thanks so much for the 5-star review. Tranquilo is a great boutique hotel. As you mentioned, it's a great value, is within walking distance of the beach and restaurants but is tucked far enough away to get some peace and quiet! Thanks for staying with us. Take care, NBV

Tranquility is as advertised. King Suite was very nice, rooms and property clean, staff helpful and pleasant, and within a couple of blocks to beach and delicious restaurants.

We had a 1 king bed with a small kitchen. The room was a nice size. Husband did not like the mattress, I didn't mind it (very soft). Pool was small but warm. There were other pools as well. One of the staff told us about coffee at 9 a.m. but that was way too late for us. We were...

Granted, the place was clean and the bed was comfy but those are the main positives. The accommodations were very sparse, reminded us more of an average European hotel. In light of the neighborhood, coupled with having to pay $10 per night for parking and a room with nowhere to sit except on the bed - all that for over...
