We stayed at El Secreto, but were able to get away to tranquility bay three times. Food was better, the reef is closer, the service impecable, and the dive shop a God send. The vibe was family like. Next time we are staying here.

I visited Tranquility Bay during "low"/rainy season with a friend for 3 days. It was very quiet, with only one other couple at the whole place. We had the whole, beautiful beach/reef to ourselves and it was very quiet. There truly is NOTHING else around for miles, except pristine beach and views. This is exactly what I wanted and I...

This place is the perfect place to get away from it all. Most of the cabanas are directly on the beach, only seconds away from great snorkeling. The water is incredibly calm, visibility amazing, there are some healthy coral with a good variety of fish offshore and it's fairly easy to get in. You can even grab a kayak from...

For full disclosure, we did not stay at the resort, but did catch a boat ride to this propertly for a day trip. Call ahead to make sure they're not too busy, but they have wonderful beach and a great dining spot/bar (Aquarium Restaurant), and it was nice to get away from the busier parts of the caye.

I don't know about you, but having spent 4 years on a yacht in the South Pacific in my younger days, Tranquility Bay Resort allowed me to step back into the expierence I remember so fondly.

We we had booked 2 days and stayed 2 weeks. It was so beautiful, we did not think we would find a better spot elsewhere in Belize.

TBR is everything good you have ever read about this resort and I've had it on my radar for 4 years, choosing Belize over Tahiti for a snorkeling trip closer to our home in the USA. I was not disappointed in my choice and at 69 years old I was able to snorkel the Mexico Rocks with the help of...
