Beautiful quiet & peaceful location. Remote---which we liked. Friendly staff. Friendly & helpful dive centre. Good food. Snorkelling off beach a bonus. kayaks for use inside the reef. Only take any trips outside the reef in VERY CALM conditions.Wear life jackets.

I went as a solo traveler expecting to spend most of my time by myself, but the staff was so friendly that I immediately felt like I was a part of their family. I hardly spent any time alone. As you've read in other reviews, the location is AMAZING. A trip to shark ray alley is a must. Food was...

The location of the resort more than makes up for its shortcomings. First of all, the location of the resort is stunning. I won't get into the details as this has been expanded upon by plenty of others. And the company website hides nothing about the remarkable beaches. Secondly, the staff is friendly, warm and knowledgeable. We got the budget...

Stayed as a family for 4 days following some time in the jungle on the mainland. We were looking for some good snorkelling, diving, and a location to chill out at. Tranquility Bay is definitely recommended though there were a few minor improvements that would have made the resort perfect. The highlights - the food and staff were execllent. Great...

My fiancé and I had a few simple requirements for our Central American honeymoon resort destination. First, it had to be somewhere quiet. Secondly, it had to serve good food. Third, there had to be some cool spots for snorkeling nearby. And finally, there had to be a great beach just footsteps from our door where we could just kick...

This review is long over due! We stayed at Tranquility Bay in January of 2012. Isabella and Carlos are incredible. There is a great staff to meet your every need. The drinks and food were never disappointing. If you like to roll out of bed and into the ocean this is the place. The snorkeling tours to Hol Chan and...

My wife and I had a great stay at Tranquility Bay. Really, it came down to Carlos and Isabella being the best possible hosts. I hope they never leave this place, as they are the heart and soul of it. The rest of the staff was also fantastic, especially Andreas and Orlando. Orlando took us on some fantastic excursions and...

It is back to reality today after spending a wonderful week at Tranquility Bay Resort. We had great weather, great food, new friends and a relaxing time. We spent our 7th Anniversary here at TBR with a nice romantic touch presented by the staff with having dinner on the beach. Awesome! The staff brought out our delicious lobster dinner to...

We are normally budget to midrange travelers but the ability to snorkel from shore and flyfish unguided lured us in and will keep us heading back to Tranquility Bay Resort. The off season (summer) rate on the Budget Traveler's Room was under $100 US and included breakfast off the menu and everything else you've read about in other reviews: over-the-top...

Location is amazing but the service was not. When we first got to tranquility bay we were met hy the management & served a drink & provided an overview of the place. That was the end of the hospitality. The staff (restaurant especially) seemed annoyed or put out whenever we ordered a basic meal. They seemed more interested in visiting...

We are sorry to hear that you did not like the hospitality at Tranquility Bay Resort. We will have a talk with the restaurant staff. Generally the bartenders/waiters get great reviews. I would also agree that the bedrooms are much comfortable and peaceful than the pull out couch in the living area. I'm sorry that, as we were fully occupied...
