It’s no exaggeration to say that Florida Keys cuisine is amazing. There’s nothing ordinary about it, even when ingredients have been cooked simply and with minimal fuss. At Tranquility Bay Hotel and Resort, every guest can experience unforgettable dining when they choose to indulge at our elegant Butterfly Café - the number one rated restaurant in Marathon, according to TripAdvisor – or sit back for a casual bite to eat at our oceanside TJ’s Tiki Bar.
To make your vacation dining even more memorable, we have launched the Tranquility Bay Culinary Escape package for a limited time only which offers every guest $50 per night to spend in Butterfly Café or TJ’s Tiki Bar when you book one of our spacious and stylish two or three-bedroom beach houses. That’s up to $250 (maximum 5 nights’ credit) at your disposal to sample the tropical tastes, delicious Caribbean-inspired cooking, and the most refreshing flavors that all make our delectable cuisine in the Keys so special.
This is the ultimate package that combines the luxury, spaciousness and comfort of our spectacular two or three-bedroom beach houses, with the indulgence and elegance of dining at Tranquility Bay. Your $50 credit per night for five nights can be spent in the evening savoring the finest flavors of the Florida Keys at our award-winning Butterfly Café where the tempting menu is particularly popular for its local seafood as well as the must-try Key Lime Pie. You can expect warm, welcoming service in light, beautiful surroundings.
You can also spend your credit at the laid-back waterfront TJ’s Tiki Bar which is an ideal spot for unwinding over a casual lunch, afternoon snacks and a cool tropical island drink while the gentle water laps on the beach nearby. Just step outside your luxury haven overlooking the water, take a stroll through our lush landscaped gardens and be indulged by the best Southern hospitality and culinary creations you could wish to find in the Florida Keys.
The Tranquility Bay Culinary Escape package includes:
- Overnight accommodation in a two or three bedroom beach house on select dates (this offer does not apply to guestrooms)
- $50 per night food and beverage credit for food and drinks at Butterfly Cafe (dinner) and TJ’s Tiki Bar (lunch and snacks) up to $250 total
We’ll take care of your dining credit leaving you to make those all-important decisions about whether to dine on coconut shrimp, Caribbean Jerk Chicken, Yellowtail Snapper or a whole host more. Bon appetit!

Marathon’s newest sightseeing venture, Overseas Aero Tours, provides a unique opportunity to see the Florida Keys from a vintage WWII biplane. During the company’s biplane rides for two, passengers can view the historic and contemporary bridges connecting the islands of the Florida Keys and spot marine life such as fish, sharks, rays and dolphins in the clear shallow waters below.
Highlights include a bird’s eye view of Marathon, Pigeon Key, Sombrero Lighthouse and the historic Seven Mile Bridge. Rides combine history and nature in a memorable, fascinating adventure for Keys visitors.
Overseas Aero Tours is a family-run endeavor. Pilots are Captain Brad Neat, who began Keys seaplane tours in 1993, and former Continental Airlines pilot Captain Evan Doumis. Both pilots are certified flight instructors and can provide flight training for those interested.
