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

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

We have been here for 3 days and today was the first time we saw a housekeeper - claim they were "short staffed". Units are old, worn and dirty. The AC does not keep the bedrooms or the common area cool. Stove doesn't boil water and the hair dryer blew a spark when turned on. Nice beach, beautiful water and... More

Katherine K, Manager at Tranquility Bay Resort, responded to this review

Very sorry to hear about your bad experience. You have the wrong Tranquility Bay Resort.We are located 14 miles North of San Pedro town on Ambergris Caye in Belize. Our little full service resort offers daily maid service. Our beach cabanas are not equipped with stoves. If you come to Belize,stop by to visit! More

Although we did not stay at Tranquility Bay we spent an afternoon there. Ate lunch (wonderful food) with the reef just outside the restaurant. They were teaching a woman to dive (very professional). They picked us up at our restart (X'tan Ha) in their boat brought us to their resort so we could walk the rest of the way to... More

We spent Christmas week here (husband/wife, 2 grown sons, grandmother) staying in the Prime Minister's Cabin. We had a wonderful week! My mother slept on the pull-out sofa. Didn't look very comfortable to me, but she had no complaints and slept well. All of the Prime Minister's Cabin is air-conditioned; I don't believe that is true in the other cabins.... More

If you are looking to get way from it all then this is the place for you. This resort really does do what it says on the tin! Peaceful, friendly, clean, calm and good food too. Great staff and well kept resort well worth the extra trouble to get there. Snorkelling is good too and I thoroughly recommend the trip... More

Located 40 minutes by boat from San Pedro,I have a special place for Tranquility Bay.During the boat ride the resorts thin out until finally the cottages of Tranquility Bay appear.Some might find the location desolate and lonely.If you are in need of night life this is not the place for you.But if you are looking for a place to unwind...

A fantastic location in such a quiet a beautiful part of Ambergris. The cabanas are all located on the beach with a 20 second walk to the turquoise sea. The staff are really nice. Norman, behind the bar, is amazing with his cocktails. The fishing trips are a must, Pani is a legend. If you are looking for quiet and... More

This is a fantastic place for kids and adults. Only place we could find that had great snorkeling off the beach. Swim to the reef. Awesome experience and tons to explore in the waters surrounding. Very accommodating staff! Clean and comfortable. Best on Ambergris!
