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...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...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,...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...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...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...More

I'm not allowed to post email address or web links in my answers. Try the contact info on the website and ask specifically for direct contact with the resort. Our last visit was in October and the resort had been shut down for annual maintenance and repairs needed due to an August hurricane; it was set to open the week our group was to arrive and we were not able to speak specifically with someone on site before our visit which was disconcerting. The place looked great and we had a wonderful visit, though.

Agree 100% with the first answer. This is the place to "escape" and "chill" - not close to town. If you want you can bring snacks and drinks and use the kitchenette (microwave & medium sized refrigerator) in the room...

We've stayed at Tranquility Bay twice for a week each and have prepared most of our own meals outside of the breakfast that's included. We made a list in advance and shopped in San Pedro Town before going to the dock for the boat trip north to the resort.
We brought spices, dried pasta sauces, and home made high protein granola bars from home. We had the taxi driver stop (extra charge, $10 maybe?) between the airport and the dock at a grocery store and several fruit stands with a shopping list that included pasta, rice, beans, potatoes, hot sauce (Marie Sharp’s!), frozen shrimp, chicken pieces, tortillas, bread, jam, peanut butter (for portable lunches), and lots of fruit and veggies. We also bought granola, cereal, oats, yogurt, and milk (watch the pull date on dairy items!) as my husband often headed up the beach flyfishing before 1st light and didn't return until after breakfast time was over. We asked and they were happy to have me order for him and return to the room with his breakfast which he enjoyed for lunch.
Keep in mind each room has a micro but no oven or burners and plates but no pots or large bowls so a little creativity is required. Coffee and coffee maker are provided; we purchased boxed tropical juices which I prefer plain and my husband prefers mixed with rum (once from the store and more recently from duty free at BZE); he ordered a few beers at the bar over the course of the week.
If you're staying on the mainland at least a few days, I'd recommend the San Ignacio area (Xunantunich and Cahal Pech are both nice Maya sites if you don't have time/money to visit Tikal in Guatemala [possible as a day trip from San Ignacio but worth an overnight]). There are some awesome caves including the very popular ATM and the less-visited and also awesome Actun Chapat.
If you're staying on Ambergris Caye the whole time, I think 1 day trip might be enough - it would be a very long day. In that case I'd choose the boat trip up the jungly New River) birds! monkeys! crocs!) from Orange Walk Town to the Lamanai Maya site.

"try to request a room far away from the dock, just a bit more deluded"
