“TranquilSeas provided the most memorable travel experience ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We absolutely loved this place. It provides privacy, breath-taking views, comfort, relaxed environment (and fun at the same time). We felt connected to nature, since it completely surrounded us. We also slept like we had never slept before. The best part was the staff, Chris and Monica, who were so sweet and attentive. They made us feel like royalty.
This hotel is the perfect place to rest, disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with your partner, and gain conscienceness on being more eco-friendly individuals. My husband and I came in stressed, and came out rested, grounded, new!
I totally recommend TranquilSeas Ecolodge!

We held our wedding ceremony at Tranquilseas and it was absolutely perfect! Chris and Monica made us feel right at home immediately and we almost felt like part of their family. In these days of corporate stamped out resort hotels, Tranquilseas is a unique gem that also has a very environmentally friendly mission. We stayed for 8 days and didn't want to leave at the end. All of our friends and family agreed that the setting was amazing.

Monica's cooking is delicious, but if you want to leave the resort there are several restaurants within walking distance. Make sure you stay for tapas night on Tuesday nights. Every dish was fantastic so come hungry. West End is a short cab ride away to get to the nightlife bars and restaurants, but the hotel is like a secluded paradise to get away from it all. Snorkelling is easy right off the dock and Chris runs a well equipped dive shop with a great dive boat.

I'd recommend Tranquilseas both for groups of families/friends or for a couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Hummingbird and Tree Frog have the best views

Thanks to Chris (Host) & Monica (Cook) and the staff ,our week at Tranquillseas was PHENOMENAL! They organized our wedding perfectly up to the last detail.(Flowers, food, drinks ) All We had to do is show up and enjoy . The location is magical and romantic.The cabanas are amazing.(love the Bathrooms)
The food was Amazing. (Tapas nights on Tuesday's are yummy and fun.)
We booked the entire resort for us,family and friends and we all LOVED it. This resort is perfect for couples or friends get away.

We stayed at Tranquilseas in June of 2011. Our stay here was the last leg of our honeymoon. We spent 3 days in Copan then zipped over to Tranquilseas and spent the last 8 days of our honeymoon there. We had an absolute blast! Chris and Monica were wonderful hosts! We loved the laid back and relaxed atmosphere! We also finished our open water scuba certification with Tranquilseas. Kent Ebanks was our instructor and he was awesome! He was a great instructor and I would recommend anyone who is looking to finish their scuba certification in the caribbean to look up Kent at Tranquilseas! He will take care of you and teach you all you need to know in a relaxed environment! Chris was also great at giving us some tips about exploring the island. And Monica was a wonderful cook. All the meals she made for us were wonderful! Our accommodations were also very nice, the beds were very comfortable and the rooms felt very homey. I personally liked the personal touch each shower had to go with the theme of the room! If you are looking for a laid back relaxing place to go on your honeymoon, vacation, or just looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life I would recommend Tranquilseas hands down!. We didn't want to leave! You won't be disappointed. Happy Trails! :)

Room Tip: Hummingbird Cabana had a decent view of the ocean while still laying in the bed.

Our stay at Tranquilseas Eco Lodge for a week of diving turned out great. Like other reviews, rooms are a little rustic, but clean, convenient, and a niece place to stay. Food on site was very good, and there are a number of restaurants within short walking distance that provide a good variety. Staff members and Chris/Monica were there to service your needs. Diving was good with clear water and abundant sea life. Would definitely go back for another stay.

Room Tip: most rooms have view of ocean and restaurant and open eating have especially a great view

My partner and I love Central America and have found the perfect getaway in Tranquilseas. Not only are the grounds gorgeously landscaped, the lodge/rooms are absolutely amazing. Chris and Monika have honestly created an island paradise that is truly an eco-lodge. We loved every minute of our stay and cannot wait to come back with the rest of the family! We stayed in West Bay for the first week of the trip and were not very impressed. Yes, the beach is lovely, but was crowded (especially with the cruise ship passengers) and riddled with vendors....not my cup of tea. The quiet nature of Tranquilseas really provided a relaxing environment...hammocks, snorkeling and reading. A perfect island getaway. Thank you so much Chris and Monika..we had the time of our lives!

It felt like vacations that I took 20 years ago before everything became the same. Everything was on a personal basis from the diving to the meals and incredibly relaxed. The diving was wonderful and Kent is one of the best dive masters around. Everything gets taken care of but nobody seems to be rushed including the guests. It's very relaxing but my daughter and I were never bored. If you want a resort feel then don't come here. This place is laid back, has good food, great views, fantastic diving, unique beach style rooms but no tv or radio, nice people running it, is quiet, and very friendly. We will be going back.
