This was our 2nd week-long stay at Tranquility Bay; our 1st was in 2012. We visited this time with 5 friends; some were getting to snorkel for the 1st time and this was a great place to do it. Our cabin, like the others, was a little rough around the edges - some rust here and there, the ants we... More

Had an absolutely perfect week at this idyllic resort. Could not have asked for more. Super staff from management to everyone else. Mark the GM seems to be ever present checking if one needs something. Loved being in an individual cabana compared to the big hotel room blocks I saw on the way there. Oh, even saw dolphins on the...

We were really looking forward to our 4 days/5 nights at Tranquility Bay, for our family of five (2-14 yrs old). However, we're giving it 3 stars overall, given the dated furnishing/facilities (a 2-3 stars), balanced by the outstanding staff & food (4-5 stars) and beach (3-4 stars). The property is up for sale, so hopefully they find new buyers... More

Really this is a 3.5 out of 5, but TripAdvisor won't let me do that... Now, I should say I'm being reasonably tough here because of the price point that the hotel has chosen. At over £200/night, this needs to be *great*. All started well with a slick arrivals process once we'd found a taxi driver who knew where to... More

Talk about relaxing! Our cabana was great and the location/view can not be beat. It's a small enough resort that you instantly get to know everyone and it's like vacationing with new friends.

Tranquility Bay made our last few days of our Belize holiday a pleasure! We were at El Secreto but had read about this place on TA, so the minute we arrived hired a golf cart and headed to Tranquility to snorkel and eat.

Tranquility Bay is the last resort on Ambergris Caye 14 miles, 30 minutes by boat from San Pedro. It is not easy to get there. We flew into Belize City, then took a small 13 seat plane to Ambergris.
