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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

TBR was a dream. Great beach with reef right out your door. Kayaks, fishing, snorkeling, diving, hammocks and beach chairs in the shade.

Let's see....this is an interesting experience to try and describe. I decided to have my wedding at TBR and it was absolutely stunning! The entire week was amazing and so much fun!

We are very sorry that your wedding didn't meet your expectations. We have made many changes in how we plan weddings at the resort and have hired a new manager. Open Bars, in my experience are always a shock to the person paying the tab. We have therefore made changes in how we tally and report back to our guests...
