We spent a week here in Cabaña #3 (the larger of the 5) and absolutely loved our stay. It got hot the week we were there at the end of May (over 100°F), but since we live in Honduras we were accustomed to the heat somewhat. The fans in the cabin made it cool enough to make the high 80s feel cool! But we have no complaints about it not having A/C. We knew this beforehand. We had the beautiful Caribbean just steps from our cabin to cool off in. The facilities are above typical Honduran standards and the retreat has beautiful landscaping ending right in the white sand. For lounging there are chairs on the manicured lawn, hammocks hanging over the sand under a palm roof hut, or a beach towel in the sand next to the crystal clear water. This stretch of beach is unlike anywhere along the north coast of Honduras, only like those of the islands. We paddle-boarded one day and saw spotted eagle rays, skates, and a large amount of fish all from standing on the board. The location was close enough to Trujillo where we could drive 10 minutes and be in the downtown area or drive the other direction and visit Santa Fe, a Garifuna community. The food in the restaurant was excellent. They usually had two choices for meals, always unique and differently prepared than what was expected. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meals! The animals were great for our 2 boys as well (ages 7 and 11). They have 2 dogs on the property (very friendly), 2 horses to ride if desired, two monkeys, and a cage of parrots. None were too noisy. The retreat is not "resorty" and does not have a pool. But this is one of the reasons we chose it. We loved the quietness of it all and just enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. Above all else the owners of the property went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, and we enjoyed visiting with them and others who gathered together to eat at meal times. We highly recommend Tranquility Bay to anyone considering visiting the best-kept secret of Honduras: Trujillo!
