Tranquilseas is a treasure
Avaliou em 21 de Setembro de 2021
Tranquilseas is idyllic. From the moment you walk in the gate you realize the natural beauty of the property. I just returned from a stay in the Hummingbird cabin and it was exactly the place to recharge and relax. I loved the hammock on the front porch and the view of the sea from the lounge chairs.
You can choose to go on a variety of excursions and the manager will take care of all the arrangements. I went snorkeling (for the second time in my life) off the pier in front of the property and could swim out to the beautiful coral reefs.
The food at the restaurant there is of such high quality and is presented beautifully. I'm a vegetarian so I can't comment on any of the meat dishes, but the hummus I had there was the best I have ever tasted anywhere and the lentil and quinoa salad was refreshing and delicious.
I also loved the smoothies at breakfast!
What really sets this place apart are the staff! Every single staff member was so friendly and warm and eager to make your stay exactly what you want it to be. A special mention to Brayan, Luis and David in the restaurant, Sayda in housekeeping and Alex who volunteered to go with me on my first real snorkel venture.
Jordan and his wife Elly manage the property and are absolutely astounding. They create the atmosphere, are extremely helpful and lead the staff so that your stay is individualized to what you want.
This is NOT the place for you if you want TVs, touristy attractions, loud partying, hawkers and raucous people!
Tranquilseas is tranquil, secluded, intimate and personal. As a single woman travelling alone, I felt totally safe and can't thank Jordan and his staff enough for an amazing week.
Great place to relax and get your dives in

I loved everything about this place. From the time I got there and was greeted by the managers to the time I left I felt like another member of the family. The Restaurant "The Sunken Fish" was way more than I expected. This is gourmet food at its best and Vanessa, Luis, Chris and David made it a pleasure to visit. Whether I wanted to enjoy a meal or just chillax I was always well taken care of. Sayda and the house keeping staff were always attentive and exceeded my needs. Amanda and the staff at the dive shop were the best and I can't say enough about my PADI instructor Iron, he was so patient and got me relaxed like I had been diving for years. Easy cab ride to where ever you wanted to go.
Stay here to dive and relax in absolute comfort!

My partner and I stayed in the hummingbird suite for a week as part of our diving holiday. Here is why I absolutely recommend this hotel to those looking for a relaxing, fun diving trip:
#1 The Room: the suite is absolutely perfect for a couple seeking privacy and relaxing comfort. It’s newly renovated with a hot rain shower which feels amazing after a long dive. The wifi works great, so we spent a good amount of time chilling out in privacy in our room or sunning ourselves in the private lounge area with a view of the ocean. Daily maid service was much appreciated considering we went through a lot of towels. The room had A/C which was great for escaping the hot weather and sleeping comfortably after a long day.
#2 The Restaurant: The Sunken Fish blew me away. I stayed at a lot of similar places in tropical environments and was expecting basic food with lots of fried options heavy on red meat. The Sunken Fish however has an incredible menu with plenty of healthy options for a variety or diets and EVERYTHING IS SO GOOD AND THE PORTIONS ARE HUGE!! After a long dive when we were starving it was so convenient to load up on delicious food at the restaurant and pass out for a nap in the air conditioned room. If you find the prices a bit high, it’s totally doable to split most of the mains and even some of the “snacks” between two people.
#3 The Dive Shop: it’s so convenient having the dive shop in the hotel. The owners were great at orienting us to the area and planning our dives ahead for the whole week so we knew what to expect. I got my advanced certification on this trip, and Iron the local dive master was a pleasure! He took me around the wrecks, reefs, swim throughs and on a night dive where I always felt taken care of. Also, the boat captain Alex is a wonderfully polite, professional driver that was so helpful with loading/unloading the gear. Finally, I loved how small the group trips are. 90% of our dives had 4 people or less. As a result we had calm, efficient dives complete with incredible sightings. While out, we would pass the boats from other dive shops with 20+ divers crammed on board and felt so grateful we picked this spot!
#4 The Location: Tranquilseas is perfect for those that want to avoid the excessive noise and traffic of West End. The hotel doesn’t have a large capacity so it often felt private to us. There is a private pier where you can relax and enjoy the sunset and stargaze with a cocktail with absolutely nobody around.
We really enjoyed being away from all the hustle and bustle while still being able to catch a taxi to the West End and hit the bars for $3. That said, if you want the hostel experience and to mix and mingle with tons of different people, this may not be the place for you.
#5 The Service: I have never experienced such incredible service in my life. The hotel staff, namely the hotel manager, was so attentive and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed on a daily basis. I was so impressed with the care and attention we received. Also, the restaurant staff are absolutely unmatched. We had about 80% of our meals there and every single one was a pleasure. The staff is forever upbeat, friendly polite, and so professional!
In all, I cannot recommend this place enough! Stay here and avoid the overly touristy, noisy, crowded nonsense of other hotels and dive shops while experiencing the highest standard of service!
Top 3 on my return to list!

All I can say is wow, I came mainly to get more experience in scuba diving.
I got so much more, first, the staff is incredible. Jordan set the tone, everyone else from Sayda who kept the room super clean to the guys in the restaurant and bar ( truly felt like family) I am so excited to return with my family this ti.e to experience this beautiful island and its people!
Great escape and dive trip

Booked a week here for a dive trip w/my adult daughter and can’t say enough about this little place - it is off the beaten path and is a boutique style resort with 7 unique rooms nestled in the jungle area right off the beach w/its own pool, private dock w/large palapa and restaurant (The Sunken Fish) overlooking the bay. Staff was wonderful, room was nice, clean (daily) and well air conditioned (we had a balcony w/ocean view) and food and drinks were great. Shout out to Louis, Vanessa, Brian, Jordan and the rest of the staff for making our week there special. We were looking for a quiet and tranquil location w/character and this fit the bill wonderfully and all for a reasonable price. In addition, Sea Divers is located on the premise and launches off TranquilSeas' private dock. They are a small operator and very accommodating. We dove nearly every day and enjoyed the personal and attentive service they provided.
