We just spent 5 days at this remarkable eco-lodge on the north end of Ambergris Caye. LOCATION - the only resort in the national park. RIGHT on the beach. The barrier reef is closer to shore here (about 200 metres) than anywhere on the island. Some beach walking in both directions, but it is minimal. This was the best snorkelling... More

My family (2 children) and I have visited Tranquility Bay Resort three years in a row. We have found a hidden gem! The beach and water are unparalleled due to the fact that they are the most northern resort on Ambergris Caye and the water was undisturbed by all of the dredging that was done to install docks at the...

We recently spent 7 days at Tranquility Bay for our 30th wedding anniversary. We loved everything about this resort. The only issue we had with our trip was the weather. I would not recommend going in June. Their rainy season is June through November. I was told February and March were the best months to visit. Although the thunderstorm right... More

As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by Norman with a tray of delicious tropical rum drinks (you can also have virgin). Welcome to paradise! Norman quickly became our favorite mix-master behind the bar. His skills are second to none and my personal favorite was the coconut mojito. Our cabana was exactly what we needed. The bedroom was air... More

7 day stay. This was a perfect place in my opinion. Beautiful beach paradise. Hammocks all around, palm trees and great snorkeling right out your door. Very comfortable and clean cabins. The Tackle Box restaurant and bar had excellent food and drinks. Great choices for breakfast (included with our stay) and the evening dinner special was always a sure bet.... More

Our family of four spent 9 nights at TBR in March. Several individuals made us feel welcome, cared for and glad to be there. All were warm, kind and invested in us having a great experience. We loved TBR for so many reasons: location, accommodations, services, activities. The beach is beautiful you can snorkel from, the reef is kayaking distance... More

My husband and I spent 8 days/7 ngts at the resort for our 20th anniversary. We are 40 somethings. We had the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation we have EVER experienced. We chose TBR because of other trip advisor reviews saying how beautiful, peaceful, secluded, and amazing it was. It was all of those things and more. TBR is 300... More

Short description - a slightly upscale eco sensitive resort on a wonderfully remote section of Ambergris Caye. For more read on. Property overview and room: Tranquility Bay was the second leg on our Trip. The first was the “adventure” climbing ruins and exploring caves, TBR was our “relax time”, which also contained a good deal of adventure. Getting to TBR... More

We chose this place because of its proximity to the barrier reef and the beachfront cabanas. We would love to go back every year. The staff and food were wonderful, the view beautiful and relaxing. We had a great scuba and snorkeling excursion. There are kayaks free for use, the reef is close enough for snorkeling, and there hammocks and... More

This is a cute little place with nice cabanas and friendly staff. What we liked the most is the ability to swim out to the coral and snorkel on our own; most of the snorkeling in Belize you must go out on a boat in a guided group. Tranquility Bay has kayaks for the use of their guests which is... More
