Living in a garden
We stayed 9 nights at Casa Tranquila and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hosts Patricia and Joanne were so lovely and accomodating. There staff, Lucila, Gaby and Ruslan were also so helpful. They all treated us so nicely. Casa Tanquila is like staying in a garden in the middle of Bucerias. Only one block from the beach and surrounded by many great restaurants. You could walk anywhere in a matter of minutes. Our one bedroom apartment was clean, had a very comfortable bed and a small but well stocked kitchen. Although our apartment didn't have air conditioning, there were floor and ceiling fans in all rooms. After the first night, we didn't miss the air conditioning. Note: other apartments at Casa Tanquila do have air conditioning if that is an absolute must. The pool was also beautiful and very refreshing. Casa Tranquila also had available for no charge, beach chairs and umbrellas as well as bicycles. The only negative was a bar across the street that once in a while was pretty noisy at night. We didn't let that spoil our stay. I highly recommend Casa Tranquila as it is so well situated, has a wonderful staff and is nicely priced.
Sweet little place
Very nice property. I felt at home as soon as I arrived. My room was perfect, had everything I needed. Nice pool, tropical plants everywhere on the property. Felt very cosy and safe
We stayed in the room that overlooks the street. We used the balcony to meet many locals that we now call friends. The hostesses are absolutely wonderful. The pool is larger than most you will find in the area. The environment is welcoming and homey, and they have a wonderful selection in the book store. Thank you Patricia and JoAnn!
A very affordable option with a great location. It is not very far from "The bridge" Joanne and Patrica will even pick you up from the airport and take you to the bank and Mega upon arrival. I stayed in the Vaquero casita on the upper floor. It was very clean. It did not have air conditioning but they do provide fans. Good WIFI also. I loved the pool it was perfect. I recommend this room if night time noise is an issue for you and if you love an upper terrace as we spent a lot of time out there. Joanne has a massage room set up right on the site. I booked one and it was well worth it!
We stayed at Casa Tranquila for 2 weeks in April and had a great time. The property is clean, well maintained and Joann, Patricia, Lucila and Ruslan are warm and welcoming. The beach is about a block away and dining amenities are all within walking distance or you can get groceries and eat at home. We stayed in Suzie Wong and were very comfortable. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking to get away for some great R&R.
DONT BOTHER. BETTER OPTIONS NEAR BY
I arrived to be greeted by the smell of something dead in the bushes next to the front door. Looking around at reception there were old books shelved on the wall and crates of old books all over the floor, this plus the adjacent used book store which is part of the entrance. It was definately a funkytype of place and all the patio and pool furnishing were definately well worn. I decided to stay because they had a very nice pool, well maintaned and a jungle type garden which I also liked. The room is about the size of my closet at home, but it was cheap and had air conditioning. Now comes the problem. On the first night I paid 2 nights in advance and all went well, however in the morning the owner informed that I left the AC on and was running up her electric bill. Now remember, at 9 am the temp is 86 degrees with about 80 humidity then it goes to 92 with 90 degrees and STAYS that way all night until 7 in the morning. It is impossible to sleep under those conditions plud noise from the bar accross the street. I gave her 50 pesos to cover the cost of what ever the AC I might use. The next day she was complaining that I left the air on again untill 11 am. She said 2 hrs. is enough AC. I told here I was IN the room until 11 am trying to sleep having had little to no rest all night due to the heat. She said oh! I reminded her I had paid extra for the use of the AC, then she explained that it wasnt the money she was worried about the the overall consumption of the hotel. In Mexico if you cross the limit of consumption the electric company doubles the tarriff. Now, I do understand her concerns, but I am on vacation and now Im in the middle of her elecrick bill trauma! I paid for my final night but didnt have change so I asked that she bring back the change...which she did not, explaining on several occaisions ..she didnt have any change either
In the 3 nights I was there there was no maid serice, no clean towels and another funky smell comming from the kitchen which did not have any windows and neither did the bathroom which had a small fan plugged into the wall to blow the bathroom oders into the living room. The website is greatly misleading and the great reviews they have must be from people that just dont know the any better! I discovered a nice 5 story hotel around the corner, with rooms twice the size, daily maid service great pool and patio with no rules on the use of the air conditioning for $10 dls more. WAY BETTER
