Marathon, which is located in the Middle Keys, is not a “party town” and remains an ideal choice for families looking for a laid-back vacation. With many spring break offers available at Tranquility Bay Resort, it’s no wonder why guests choose to unwind with their family in the lap of luxury, where relaxation, adventure and sunshine are perfectly blended with a whole host of other essential ingredients.

Spacious Accommodation For the Whole Family

As one of the best family resorts in the Florida Keys, we offer spacious beach houses with a choice of two or three bedrooms. These charming accommodations feature two-level living including a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a separate dining area and living room with 42-inch wall mounted plasma TV, and wireless internet.

French doors on both levels lead to spacious porches with spectacular, and unobstructed water views of the Gulf of Mexico. Laundry facilities and bedrooms are upstairs. View our Two-Bedroom Beach Houses or Three-Bedroom Beach Houses for full details, or take a look at our double queen guestrooms which are more intimate than our larger beach houses, but still offer much more space than a standard hotel room and excellent value for money.
