We had a long travel day and arrived late. Sheila and Rusty were outside waiting for us when we arrived. Sheila had on her apron and dinner was waiting. How wonderful. We felt like family and the food was absolutely terrific. Sheila and Rusty Nale are terrific hosts. Sheila is a fabulous cook and Rusty is social and friendly and made us feel like we were at home. Even his jokes are funny! The rooms are clean, well-decorated and welcoming. The upstairs dining area is screened in with a view of the jungle. We loved the Tranquility Lodge and the surrounding jungle - complete with a swimming hole! We recommend the Tranquility Lodge.

Wonderful experience

4.0 on September 05, 2010

We were there for 3 days and it was such a great experience. Everything was perfect including the room, the service, the great food (Sheila is a fantastic cook), the river, the jungle, the butterflies and, specially, the owners, Sheila and Rusty. We want to go back there !!! If you go in southern Belize, YOU MUST GO THERE!!!

Absolutely Wonderful

Sheila and Rusty provided an amazing place for our service group to relax after long days of service work. The food was absolutely delicious (our group loved food a little bit too much). I would recommend Tranquility Lodge to everyone! Amazing!

A volunteer group's heaven!

A co-worker and I found Tranquility Lodge by "accident" on a scouting trip for an international service trip for university students. This was the best accident we ever made. Sheila and Rusty were amazing to work with and set up trip arrangements---their knowledge of the area helped us set up a great trip. Their extreme generosity while we were staying with them made us never want to leave! The meals were better than great (and we had big appetites after doing service all day!) and the rooms were perfect for our group (they even fed our coffee addictions!) This is a great spot for groups! We were able to reserve the whole lodge and the great room upstairs was ideal for meetings and daily debreifs. The swimming hole is a great place to cool off and the lodge is at a perfect location to get to PG, Mayan ruines, and other villages in towns in Toledo.
