Crystal clear water, like swimming in a aquarium. Food and service, they went out of there way. I felt isolated the first night. But by the next morning, felt like home, just relax. Meet some friendly people, good laughs. Clean, all the cabanas are perfect. Like a postcard. Planing on going back there.... Will not be disppointed

My cousin and I just returned from a fantastic trip here. We had a cute and comfortable two bedroom cabana right on the beach. Not only is this a great location, but it's the people who work here that make it extra special. Everyone was so kind and helpful. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house rather... More

Well I was the groom at the wedding that had most of the resort rented out from March 9th to the 16th. My wife did have a fair amount of communication issues with the resort prior to getting to the resort and while at the resort ( to read on those issues read her review below). Being the typical husband... More

Our trip was the first week of April this year. I have visited Tranquility Bay before and have always enjoyed it very much. Since my last visit, there has been a very nice upgrade of the cabanas and the Tackle Box Sea Bar...fresh paint, varnish, etc. It really looks nice. Just the week before we arrived there was a change... More

Wife and I recently stayed at Tranquility Bay and absolutely loved it. As many other reviewers have already stated, it is very remote and therefore also very quiet and relaxing. All cabanas are mere steps from the beach. We snorkeled several times right off the beach and enjoyed seeing the coral clusters, colorful fish and even a few stingrays so... More

We stayed in TBR from Mar 9 - 16th with a large group of friends and family celebrating a wedding. We had ignored previous reviews as they were older noting problems with the managers and inexplicably large tabs at the end of the week. Do not be fooled, they are up to the same tricks. Pete, was the manager on... More

Most of your wedding guests had a great time and enjoyed the week at Tranquility Bay Resort. We know that some issues occurred with the planning and the Open Tab the night of the ceremony. We have made changes in the onsite management and our reporting for Open Bars at the resort and are looking forward to the future of... More

KJSmith11’s review prompted me to finally write my own long overdue review. I don’t know why we didn’t do it right away as we had basically already formulated it in our heads on the way home. I guess we kept wondering how to pare it down. However, now I don’t have to as KJSmith11’s review basically describes our experience as... More

We went to this isolated resort July 1st 2012. There are no roads to get to this place - it is about 25 minutes from San Pedro via speeding motorboat to get there. Once there, you find a nice beach (with good snorkeling available right from the beach - very rare in Belize), about 12 two story little detached houses,... More

This review is long overdue... my husband and I spent a wonderful week at Tranquility Bay to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary in late April of 2012. We are Caribbean bums and have traveled to many of the USVI's and BVI's, Mexico a few times, and the Bahamas, so we were looking for something different and less commercial. We... More
