“The Perfect Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

If you want to find the perfect getaway in a beautiful jungle setting, Tranquility Lodge is the place to be. From the delicious food to the comfortable beds and old fashioned swimming hole, it is a wonderful way to really experience Belize. We awoke every morning to the sounds of parrots and howler monkeys and the smell of coffee brewing and bacon frying.
Sheila and Rusty are the perfect hosts - making us feel like family and giving us advice on places to go and places to avoid. This was a vacation we will always remember. We really hope to be able to return someday.

This was our second stay at Tranquility lodge. It is a great place to feel "away from it all". Rusty and Shelia are fantastic hosts. They make you feel at home and cook some great food.

My husband and I visited while visiting the Punta Gorda area. The location was an easy drive into town and being just off the highway guaranteed us excellent accessibility. Sheila made sure our every need was met and Rusty was very helpful with spotting and naming birds I had never seen. The food was excellent, hotel staff was friendly and helpful and rooms were immaculately clean and air conditioned. Nights were amazingly peaceful. Can't wait to go back for a longer stay. Thanks Sheila and Rusty.

We just stayed one night, but it was lovely. The cabana is nicely decorated, really spacious, with very comfy beds! Lots of little touches like handmade soaps which are made by their neighbor. It is a really easy place to find and Sheila can recommend activities to do in the area.

The kudos that are richly deserved for Tranquility Lodge are as much about the style and savvy of its owners/managers as about the place itself. Sheila and Rusty have pitch-perfect touch as innkeepers, which reflects years of experience in the Belize hospitality industry, an obvious affinity for all things Belizean, and an eagerness to share always-intelligent and spot-on recommendations for planning drives, days, and diversions.
We stayed five days at Tranquility Lodge, a great location from which to
explore southern Belize. Our large room/cabana was recently redecorated, super, super clean and nestled near the jungle growth on the quiet grounds occupied by the Lodge. Sheila’s delicious breakfasts are served in a spacious informal dining room with an open second-floor vista onto this very private site’s landscape.

Tranquility is near the Southern Highway, convenient to Mayan ruins at
Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit. We had a car rental, great for exploring the area – but beware – the secondary roads are dirt and rock and rutted. Tranquility is a 15 minute drive from Coleman’s Café on the Southern Highway and Marion’s in Punta Gorda, both serving delicious and very inexpensive Belizean fare. You serve yourself in Perlene and Tom Coleman’s kitchen and can sit outside, often with them, chatting. Marion’s is in town, overlooking the bay. For a foodie highlight, treat yourself to lunch or dinner at Chef Rob’s in Hopkins, about an hours drive from Tranquility. Amazing food – fresh, creative, and well priced.

Tranquility Lodge is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay! The rooms are so comfortable and the setting is wonderfully peaceful. I recommend this great place to anyone looking for lodging in the Toledo District! And the owners, Rusty and Sheila, are great too!

We spent one night at the lodge and loved it. The quiet location with a fresh water swimming spot was perfect. The room was very clean and nicely decorated most importantly a comfortable bed and hot water shower! Sheila was very hospitable and accommodating to all of our needs. Breakfast was a taste of home, it was great and a set us up well for the rest of the day. We would go back anytime.
