Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

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. There are only 11 individual air conditioned cabanas so the experience is very personal - the meals, fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and...

We specifically chose this resort for its snorkeling and the isolation. It is truly beautiful, and while it's not as isolated as we expected (some golf carts/ATVs going by on the weekend, and a few fishing boats in the bay), it's still as quiet as it gets. We like the intimacy of a small resort, getting acquainted with the other...

Dear Midgeo Thanks so much for sharing such an indepth review for our readers. I am just glad that you enjoyed the warmth of Belize and our surrounding. The points you made are valid indeed, about the depth or lack thereof and the currents, we are very subject to the weather here in Belize. The wind plays a factor and...

My wife and I spent 6 nights and 5 full days at this wonderful resort in January of 2017. We found our cabana to be clean and comfortable and the beach area was well-maintained. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The restaurant served up excellent meals in a beautiful setting on the dock and we even saw tarpon and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I'm still here and leave tomorrow. In a resort, I want value, convenience, quiet (aka relaxing) and access to good snorkeling and good food. So location really matters. First, the snorkeling is excellent. Within 100 feet of the shore is a small reef but a long swim out to huge reef where I saw many...

Our tour guide took us to Tranquility Bay for a drink and I immediately fell in love. The natural beauty of the place, the availability of great drinks and food served by friendly staff. This is a place where you would stay and not want to leave. I am looking forward to going back again and again!!

Wow. This place is probably the most beautifully isolated resort I have ever been to. If you are going to stay here please know what you are getting. If you need a pool, wifi, TV, beach drink service, arranged activities or disco music please so somewhere else. If you want peace and beauty in quiet to just relax in the...

We stayed for four days and had a great time. Rooms are spacious, cool and beds comfy all with amazing views of the sea. Beach is lovely and very close to the reef (unlike other San Pedro hotels) which makes snorkelling good/easier. Staff were all super friendly and welcoming and the food was exceptional. Fish strips (starter) and coconut curry...

We stayed here nearly six years ago and enjoyed it just as much this time.
