My husband Alan and I spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at Tranquility Bay. Alan had done all the research and he picked the PERFECT place to begin; there could have been no better place to truly relax, enjoying the beautiful beach with its serenity and quiet.
Carlos and Isabelle run the brightly colored, well staffed establishment on the north end of the Island. Carlos picked us up at the pier in San Pedro and we had our own little private romantic ride to Tranquility Bay, leaving bustling San Pedro behind us. We were greeted at Tranquility Bay's brightly lit peer by Carlos's beautiful wife Isabelle who guided us straight to the bar and handed us one of the bartender Hill's "specialty drinks," the Island Stumbler. We were instantly in relax mode. Our bags were taken for us; we just had a cocktail as Isabelle pointed out all the beautiful fish you could see over the rail of the "tackle box" restaurant and bar. Perfect.
The bartender, Hill, is super friendly and will make anything you want to order from behind the bar - and sometimes suprise you with his nightly "special." We spent our evenings at the tackle box with Hill's creations, often playing chess with Carlos and chatting with Isabelle and HIll. Excellent people.
The cabanas are beautiful, clean, and equipped with a kitchenette. I'd recommend stopping in town to get some snack food (and SUNSCREEN!!!) before you head out there - plenty of room in the fridge. The bedroom is nicely air conditioned and the cabana was cleaned daily. There was a safe in our room, and we felt very secure in the resort.
Isabelle and Carlos are welcoming, attentive, and warm - you won't find better hosts. (I had forgotten I needed to send a fax back to the states on the first day there, and Carlos took care of it for me free of charge.) Thanks, guys, for starting us off right!
