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

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
