I chose to stay at Tranquilseas because it was a three minute beach walk from Anthony's Key Resort (recommended by friends as a super location but full) and because of it's well documented commitment to the health of the local coral reef and marine life.
I'm so glad we ended up here! With a total occupancy of 20 or so guests, it is simply a different experience that larger resorts simply do not provide. I witnessed the proprietors Chris and Monica tailor experiences for those traveling with children (I was on a Dad-Daugther adventure), to couples young and older, to those traveling alone and with family and friends. They go out of their way to make your stay wonderful and personal.
The cabana style lodging is beautiful, new and unique.
The staff - dive master, bartender, waitress, etc. - remember your name by the second day, are personable, and very knowledgeable about the island, Honduras and local activities. They are also fun and interested in making your stay memorable.
The attention to detail is abundant - fresh cut flowers, cook to order paella, Spanish guitarist and tapas night, Lion fish speared by you turned into ceviche appetizers, etc. Small things that make the stay special.
Of course knowing in a small way that your helping reef conservation, and people like Chris who are committed to the long term economic and cultural success of the island and it's people is also very gratifying.
