We stayed at Tranquility Bay 5 nights during the New Year in Cabana # 11. The budget room, but had everything we need. All the staffs are very friendly and kind. The location is the best. The beach and water are so beautiful. We did...More

My Wife and I have been traveling to Belize for the past 5 years and decided this year we would head up north away from it all. We booked 4 days and left after two. The pictures that I have attached says it all. Gross...More

I'm not allowed to post email address or web links in my answers. Try the contact info on the website and ask specifically for direct contact with the resort. Our last visit was in October and the resort had been shut down for annual maintenance and repairs needed due to an August hurricane; it was set to open the week our group was to arrive and we were not able to speak specifically with someone on site before our visit which was disconcerting. The place looked great and we had a wonderful visit, though.
You could also try their facebook page if you have an account. Have a great trip!
Agree 100% with the first answer. This is the place to "escape" and "chill" - not close to town. If you want you can bring snacks and drinks and use the kitchenette (microwave & medium sized refrigerator) in the room...

We've stayed at Tranquility Bay twice for a week each and have prepared most of our own meals outside of the breakfast that's included. We made a list in advance and shopped in San Pedro Town before going to the dock for the boat trip north to the resort.
We brought spices, dried pasta sauces, and home made high protein granola bars from home. We had the taxi driver stop (extra charge, $10 maybe?) between the airport and the dock at a grocery store and several fruit stands with a shopping list that included pasta, rice, beans, potatoes, hot sauce (Marie Sharp’s!), frozen shrimp, chicken pieces, tortillas, bread, jam, peanut butter (for portable lunches), and lots of fruit and veggies. We also bought granola, cereal, oats, yogurt, and milk (watch the pull date on dairy items!) as my husband often headed up the beach flyfishing before 1st light and didn't return until after breakfast time was over. We asked and they were happy to have me order for him and return to the room with his breakfast which he enjoyed for lunch.
Keep in mind each room has a micro but no oven or burners and plates but no pots or large bowls so a little creativity is required. Coffee and coffee maker are provided; we purchased boxed tropical juices which I prefer plain and my husband prefers mixed with rum (once from the store and more recently from duty free at BZE); he ordered a few beers at the bar over the course of the week.
If you're staying on the mainland at least a few days, I'd recommend the San Ignacio area (Xunantunich and Cahal Pech are both nice Maya sites if you don't have time/money to visit Tikal in Guatemala [possible as a day trip from San Ignacio but worth an overnight]). There are some awesome caves including the very popular ATM and the less-visited and also awesome Actun Chapat.
If you're staying on Ambergris Caye the whole time, I think 1 day trip might be enough - it would be a very long day. In that case I'd choose the boat trip up the jungly New River) birds! monkeys! crocs!) from Orange Walk Town to the Lamanai Maya site.
