My name is Kim, and I'm a Tranquilseas addict... I keep returning to Tranquilseas because it is such an amazing place! The diving is great, the food is wonderful, and Chris and Monica are the best hosts ever - they go out of their way to make sure your vacation is everything you want it to be - whether you want a relaxing, leisurely pace or are an over-zealous adventurer - they will make sure you get the vacation you want!

My wife and i did not stay here and only used their dive shop services. We were both first time divers trying for our certification. The staff was amazing, working around our slow honeymoon pace. From the owner to our guide, we were treated to an excellent experience. No they are not the cheapest on the island but you get MORE than you pay for with Tranquilseas. In addition, it was a great place to grab a drink and unwind after diving and the hotel is a place i hope to stay when i return. All in all, a fantastic dive shop with plenty of dive options for beginners and advanced divers. The groups are small and trips designed so you are not rushed or held up. Truly a fantastic group of people to work with while vacationing!

We found Tranquil Seas on Trip Advisor and this was our first stay and first time to dive. It was amazing!!!! Chris and Monica do a a great job of welcoming you into their home. The setting is one of the most tropical settingsi have stayed. The cabanas blend in as they are all wood. Tranquil Seas does a great job of keep the environment a top priority. The breakfast is amazing!!!!! The property has 5 or 6 cabanas so it was not very crowded when we where there which made it even more relaxing. There are a ton of separate nooks to read and relax on the grounds. Chris and Monica are very helpful and Monica makes a mean paella!

The diving since that was new to us we didn't really know what to expect...Kent was/is the Best!!! My husband is the one who got certified but Kent and Kerry let me go on the boat every time. Finally by the end of the week Kent's goal was to get me to at least snorkel and that he did! They did a great job with the lesson and my husband had a great experience.

After a week none stop traveling and partying around Florida we finally arrived in Roatan and were on our way to Tranquil Seas. We had no idea what to expect as had bought the trip through a Charity Auction. We were not in the slightest bit disappointed. Only made happier and more relaxed every day. You do not have to be a diving fanatic to fall in love with Tranquil Sea's. We didn't dive at all but thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling and relaxing around the Eco Lodge. Chris, Monica, Ross and Dani will look after you and make you feel so relaxed and comfortable. Maybe something to do with Dani's incredible cocktails....by far the best bar women on the island! Nothing is to much trouble for the wonderful team of workers and Tranquil Seas. The entire ethos of Tranquil Sea's and the passion that Chris has for the place is nothing but contagious. As I was with my brother and wanted separate rooms we stayed in Octopus which can actually accommodate 8 or more. The rooms were perfect....the beds made up with beautiful while sheets and very comfortable. Wonderful huge showers in the most colourful bathroom I have ever seen. It only made you smile more. Two hammocks sat outside our room and were perfect for an afternoon siesta in the sun after yet more of Monica's fantastic cooking. The food really was delicious and so fresh. Even eating three meals a day with beer and wine I did not come back feeling as though I had been unhealthy as I had done after a week in Florida! We went out to the local West End area which was great but we almost mist our little Tranquil Seas home and chatting away all evening with the other guests. The whole week could not have been more perfect. Nothing at all stressed us out or made us worry. Only 10 mins from the airport, easy and safe and very cheap taxi ride to town. Never at all did we feel threatened in the area. It really was such a fantastic holiday and I can not wait to go back again as soon as possible. One recommendation for anyone reading this review...BOOK NOW!

Our trip to Tranquil Seas and Roatan was our first. It was wonderful. The property is beautiful, quaint, and well maintained. Chris, Monica, and their entire staff are very friendly and accommodating. We went diving for 5 days and always had a great experience. The food is very good with a really nice variety. We had a fantastic and very relaxing week.

This was our first stay at Tranquilseas. The resort and diving are fantastic. This is the only Eco lodge on the island. The owners, Chris, from England, and Monica, from Spain, are great hosts.
Chris and Monica feel strongly about using local products and not damaging the pristine local environment. They provided great customer service. Chris is very funny, and Monica, an awesome cook.
There are five rooms on the immaculate property, with 2 more being built, probably ready by December. Most of the reviews talk about the 3 rooms with ocean views, but, we loved the Turtle room, towards the back of the property. It was very private and not exposed directly to the hot sun. The air conditioning worked great, the room was clean, bed comfortable, and nice big tile shower.
Kent, the normal dive master, was on holiday. Malcom, also from England, was superb and
definitely an expert in his craft, and extremely thoughtful. Ross, also from England, is very personable, young, and energetic, and currently doing his dive master training. Daniella is a great bar tender and server, and Dena, a smiling, cheerful face, at morning breakfast with great Honduran coffee made the week even better. The resort seems to attract an interesting mix of people with varied interests. "Tapas Tuesday" with live music was enjoyable.
The overall experience is relaxed and laid back with great food, scenery, and diving.
For more action, the West End, is a $2.00 cab ride away. Try "Sundowners" for happy hour, with it's classic setting. Also recommend the Dolphin encounter at Anthony Keys, only a 10 minute walk from Tranquilseas. The one thing to watch out for are the Sand flies! We used the local product as to not harm the reef, but the little buggers are relentless. Not sure how to solve this one.
Can't wait to return!

The commitment to the property is shared by the staff, and it is a beautiful piece of property! Ross was our first introduction to our stay. He showed us the shallow reef snorkeling 50 paces from our lodging where we saw queen angel, eel and teeming tropical fish. My husband and I took a diving refresher with Kent in the property pool. He is very thorough and patient. Boat diving was enjoyable with attention to safety. Great food, wait staff. Grounds well maintained. Eco-friendly cactus juice sunscreen and repellent for purchase there. We used it and didn't have any sand fly bites or sunburn- different than our last Roatan stay at another propery.
