My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful week at TranquilSeas. The place is idyllic: boutique-built, lots of wood and greenery, and lots of comfortable communal spaces for just a handful of cabanas. The hosts, Chris and Monica, make the place even more special.
We stayed in Hummingbird, which has a breath-taking view of the ocean. The room was simple and comfortable: comfy bed, ceiling fan, AC (which we did not use), screened windows, hot and plentiful shower. The kitchenette is minimal (a fridge, a toaster and a coffee maker) but was fine to fix ourselves breakfast and a lunch salad to enjoy on the cabana's terrace. For dinner, Monica's cooking at TranquilSeas is not to be missed (paella and shrimp curry were scrumptious!). West End (a 5 min cab ride away) has plenty good options too.
Chris and Monica know the area well and their tips and recommendations were spot on. We were a bit nervous about running into the cruise ship madness in Roatan but Sandy Bay is out of the way. Chris produced a schedule of ship arrivals, and advised to stay away from West Bay on those days, which was not a problem and all it took to avoid the crowds. From TranquilSeas' own pier, you can swim out to the reef for great snorkeling, and Octopus Divers next door was so handy for diving (Thanks, Kent!!). On top of that, Chris arranged other diving trips for us at the drop of a hat.
We will go back to Roatan, to TranquilSeas, and recommend it wholeheartedly.
