My fiancee and I stayed at Tranquility Bay for 5 nights in May 2017. The name says it all - the resort is secluded on a beautiful stretch of beach on Ambergris Caye. The location is perfect for couples or families looking to relax in peace and quiet (anyone wanting nightlife or to party should stay in San Pedro). The...

In reading the reviews for this report and after visiting it I can agree that the cabanas are in need of some TLC. However the location and the staff are top notch. From the Manager Mark to our cabana keeper Tanisha they are kind, caring people dedicated to making sure you enjoy your stay. The food and service in the...

We stayed four nights at Tranquility Bay and loved every minute! This is not a big resort, but it is very personal and relaxing. Not only were the staff friendly but all the guests were very hospitable and friendly. We stayed in the Prime Minister cabana. Yes, all but the budget room open right onto the beach as seen in...

Tranquility Bay Resort was everything I dreamed of and more! If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing and intimate vacation, this is a great place to stay. The resort is remote, 30 minute boat ride from San Pedro, so you get to know the management, staff and fellow residents which is something I loved. Other people will visit the resort...

Tranquility bay is a great place to stay. Only downside is that it's so far away from everything that there aren't many options of things to do. If you are looking for isolation and snorkeling off the beach, come here, but it's not much fun for younger and more active people.

We were staying approximately 10 miles outside San Pedro on the north side of Ambergris Caye. The Tranquility Bay Resort was about 3-4 miles further north, by golf cart (the path was very rough). Took us about 30-40 minutes to drive it (from our place). The ocean view a little disappointing along the way (massive amount of sargassum seaweed and...

Before booking our stay at Tranquility Bay Resort, I read the other reviews on Trip Advisor. I noted that some guests complained about the "shabby" beachfront casitas, the piles of sargassum seaweed, and the trash (mostly plastic) washing up on the coastline north of the resort. Those criticisms turned all out to be true and, even so, I give this...

Just spent a week here with my wife and our 12 year old son. The location is remote but the resort picks you up in San Pedro by boat and takes you along the coastline for about 35 minutes.
