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

Usually when traveling one experiences moments of stress... boat not on time, excursion not good, bed uncomfortable, etc. But this is not the case at Tranquility Bay. I don't think I have ever known a manager of a hotel to be so detailed oriented and yet laid back as Catherine is. The boats all run on time. The excursions are... More

We stayed at Tranquility Bay for three nights in the middle of our honeymoon. The location is 5-star - we chose it because we wanted the intimacy of our own beach, and to be able to walk right into the ocean and snorkel. Walking the beach at sunrise, snorkeling, and lounging in the hammocks was fantastic, and the trips we... More

Very happy we decided to stay here 8 nights on Ambergis Caye. I was looking for reef and reef life, and this was right on the money. Ill do a quick breakdown to avoid a lengthy read.....accommodations were great, no issues with AC in each bedroom (2bed cabana #8) and they are serviced each day (bring groceries/snacks from town for...

Our three night stay in Casita 11 was just what we needed. The room was large and comfortable. The beach was just steps away. Behind our casita, we could see many iguanas sunning themselves and digging holes. We were happy to snorkel off the beach and stroll along the water edge. The quiet and seclusion was perfect.

We stayed here for five nights as part of a trip around Belize. This small beach-side hotel is in a delightful, secluded location at the northern end of Ambergris Caye, accessible by boat only. It is the perfect place for lazing away the days on the small but well kept beach, and snorkelling from your cabana doorstep to the barrier... More

My husband and I and a dear friend stayed at Tranquility through March 13-21, 2015. I can't say enough about how wonderful our trip was. The beach view is breathtaking, the cabanas were very clean and had all we needed. The staff were sincerely friendly and anticipated your needs. We arrived in San Pedro town via water taxi and spent... More

This was our first trip to Belize and our experience could not have been better. Traveling from Providence (6:00am)to Charlotte to Belize City to Ambergris Caye (3:30)was pretty smooth. We were greeted by Catherine upon arrival and from beginning to end of our two week stay her presence was apparent. She has a keen eye for detail and went out... More

I stayed here by myself for a little over a week over the New Year holiday, the staff at TBR could not have been more accommodating. Its the perfect place to have secluded restful vacation but if you would like a little more adventure the activities they offer outside of the resort are vast, and the staff will arrange everything...

We stayed at TBR for eight wonderful days Jan. 28-Feb. 6th 2015. I have never relaxed so fully on a vacation in by life! The resort is very aptly named. We stayed in the Prime Minister's cabana, which had two bedrooms and two baths and a nice upstairs balcony overlooking the ocean. It had air conditioning (which we used several... More
