Five years ago, 2009, Larry and Linda left the fast paced, rainy climate of Vancouver, Canada, to begin a new adventure as owners of Tranquility Bay Beach Retreat. Extensive renovations and personal touches have turned this little paradise into a "5 Star Resort" rated "#1 in Trujillo" by Trip Advisor. Five comfortable, spacious cabanas only steps away from the sparkling Caribbean, await our guests. Each cabana, that sleeps 4/5 people, is equipped with Air Conditioning, bar fridge, coffee maker, hot water, private bathroom, Free high speed WiFi, and private verandah with hammock for afternoon siestas. A wide variety of activities keep guests busy and fit with paddle boarding, wind surfing, kite boarding, ocean kayaking, beach walks, horse back riding, banana boat and snorkelling. Experience a Mayan massage or Hot Rock massage to complete your Tranquil experience.. Tours to historic and cultural attractions are easily arranged by our friendly staff. Tranquility's restaurant offers a wide range of traditional Honduran food as well as American cuisine. We take great pride in bringing a satisfied smile with delicious and artistically presented fare. Tranquility continues to be a meeting place where guests, neighbours, and community volunteers gather to exchange stories and local news. It is our wish that our guests will appreciate the untouched beauty of the land and sea, the warmth and diversity of the people, and the rich history of the country that has become our new home.

My amazing wife and I have been serving a voluntary 23 month Mission here in Honduras, with many responsibilities and demands. Our 3 year Anniversary was last week. She first found Tranquility Bay Beach Retreat on Google Maps.
Larry and Linda have truly created a magical retreat of peace and beauty. The restaurant and cabanas are well screened providing a dining and sleeping experience free from pesky flies and other insects, so common at other beach restaurants of the area.
The restaurant menu includes a heavenly variety of delicious meals, including traditional foods as well as my favorite Sopa Marinara (seafood soup) for lunch one day, all prepared from delicious recipes. And the fresh fruit drinks and smoothies are amazing and refreshing and incomparable.
We frolicked and played in the beautiful Caribbean Sea almost all of our first full day. Larry and Linda are remarkable and extraordinary people. Our lives have been enriched in becoming acquainted and visiting with them.
If your stay includes a clear night, bring a green laser pointer. Your star gazing experience will be all the more fun. The private peacefulness of the Retreat was just what we needed. We hope you feel that same spirit of peace during your stay.
We would recommend arriving during daylight hours. Many streets along the waterfront in Trujillo are closed off in sections to replace dirt and gravel streets with nice concrete streets. We arrived after dark in the rain, so finally getting to the Tranquility Bay Beach Retreat was a bit of an Indian Jones adventure, but after we arrived and got settled in, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner and the beginning a of our marvelous two day stay. We will definitely be back!!! Thanks to you Larry and Linda. and to your incredible staff. ¡¡¡Muchísimas Gracias!!!

Larry and Linda were amazing to work with. They worked so well with our group and were willing to adjust to our ever-changing schedule. There was never a time that they were not willing to help us out, whether it was providing a shovel to bury ourselves in the sand, or medical advice to make sure everyone was safe. Truly felt as though we were guests in their home, rather than staying at a business.

We parficularly feel deeply inspired by Linda and Larry, not just as our hosts but also as two beautiful humans with a golden heart. They're are graceful and kind. They made us feel like home at Tranquility Bay Beach Retreat.
The peaceful atmosphere, the neatness in the "cabañas", the lovely animals around, and the direct contact with nature in the sorroundings undoubtedly made our vacations unique. The food they serve is truly organic and fresh, but more inportantly, being trated like family and respect by the whole staff is something we mostly admire.
Ones surely goes back to those places that feel like home.

Dankjewel Larry & Linda! ❤❤

We rented the Penthouse Room, which has a private swimming pool, complete with lounge chairs, 2 additional bathrooms with showers located just off the pool, a large area for cooking on the grill and guest. The Suite is located right on the water and the view from the penthouse balcony is just gorgeous. It's very peaceful and relaxing. Larry and his wife are just fabulous host, this was my third time staying here, and I can assure you there'll be a fourth if time permits.

Tranquility Bay is a little bit of Eden in the jungle but with incredible miles of white sand beach and Caribbean shore. This is the ideal place for peace and quiet and a somewhere to totally relax and not be bothered by anyone else. Our hosts and owners, Larry and Linda make you feel like extended family and, with the help of their attentive staff, serve up delicious meals that you can select from a varied menu in the restaurant. Each of the 5 spacious cabanas can sleep 4 people and includes a kitchenette. Snorkling, boat and dive trips can be arranged by Larry and there are paddle boards available.

My husband and I had a wonderful time here and really got to see a little bit of life in Honduras thanks to Larry and Linda . They took us on several excursions to Trujillo and also to see how the local people live. We went at Christmas time and enjoyed a typical family dinner with all the staff and our hosts.

We have been at Tranquility Bay about 6 times. We love the quiet surrounding in nature and by the beach. There is a small restaurant where they make the best breakfast ever, especially pancakes. Linda and Larry are such caring owners and take the time in their busy schedule to seat and get to know you. We can definitely say that we will return next year.

TBay is such a great place to go for a relaxing get away. It's right on the beach and using their paddle boards and kayaks are great for seeing some beautiful mountain views. Linda and Larry are great along with all the staff. They are so personable and kind. I've eaten many meals in their little restaurant and they have all been delicious. The cooks are certainly talented! If you're looking for a relaxing getaway for a day, weekend, or even a week I can't recommend this place enough.

I found out about Tranquility through a friend 2 months ago. I loved the place and decided to return with my family. The place is very beautiful, the beach with its transparent water and without much waves invites you not to leave that natural pool. The landscape is incredible, the view is wonderful all around, my family is delighted with the food service, the cabin is very comfortable with everything we need, the restaurant has variety and exquisite food.
We did several activities such as horseback riding and paddle boarding, I took my own bicycle and toured the surroundings of Santa Fe. The entire place is safe and quiet, the hotel owners made us feel at home. I am waiting for my new vacation to return, it was an Excellent travel experience in Tranquility Bay.

I just had the pleasure, extreme pleasure, of staying for 12 days with Larry and Linda at Tranquility Bay. The first night we had an amazing meal of fresh fish that Larry bought locally. Each meal we had was great.

If you want to get away to a place that is quiet, friendly, peaceful with white sand, amazing sunny days, and beautiful seas... this is it. We had an amazing sunset every night.

At the end of the trip, Larry flew us to Roatan on his twin engine plane for an easy connection to United Airlines.

They have the perfect name and live up to it...Tranquility Bay! Thank you Larry and Linda... hope to see you again soon!

If you visit Trujillo this is definitely THE place to be! Lynda, Larry and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. The hotel is just right in front to the beach! and felt so private! Our cabin had a little kitchenette, fridge and coffee maker, etc. We spent our mornings in the paddleboard and the afternoons in the hammocks sipping our drinks. They spoiled us and set the bar high! Looking forward to spent more time in this hotel !!

No it is not all inclusive. You have to purchase your meals, they have a kitchen on site and great food. They do have some boats I think they will let you take out for free. Not exactly sure
