- What's Included
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the water was amazing and the best pretty blue. The people are very friendly, but when we came over to Jolly beach resort some of the staff over there had an attittude and they are arguing with the guests, I go back to tranquility bay but not going at Jolly Beach resort
My two girlfriends and I stayed at the Tranquility Bay Antigua in May 2015. The stay was part of a time share package my one friend's parents let us use, so that's why we stayed here. My friend told me to just book my flight and bring spending money as the room was on her, so I couldn't say no!!! The room was a little out dated, but I loved the beachy feel of it. Also the balcony was HUGE and we spent a lot of time playing board games and card games at night on the balcony (not ocean view, but still nice to have). The resort seemed pretty quiet, and there is no food included in your stay, but we were allowed to use the dining room at the resort next door (Jolly Beach Resort) if we paid a price. We opted not to, and instead went to the supermarket that was a two minute golf cart ride away. We picked up groceries for a few days worth at a time, and would go home and make meals in our kitchenette. The beaches of Antigua are beautiful, I have never seen anything like it before. The water is aqua coloured, and completely calm. We were not bothered by any sea life, and had a blast suntanning on the beach or lounging on a beach floatie in the water. We met James on the beach our first day there, and he gave us some fresh mango's. We also arranged through him a night trip to Shirley Heights, one of the highest points of the Island, where they had a steel band and bbq dinner, and drinks. We partied into the night and felt completely safe with the driver that James arranged for us, and I later learned upon speaking with him that he was an ex-cop. We also did a snorkeling boat excursion with unlimited booze on the boat (but not until after the snorkeling was over) and they had a limbo contest, it was a super fun day!!! Overall I would definitely love to go back to Antigua, but may try a different resort next time. Who knows though, if the price is right, I'd return to Tranquility Bay.
breathtaking views, beautiful beaches,crystal clear waters and good tourshad such wonderful time with my daughter and grandsons. so much so i went on my first zipline ever at my young age of 65.great time was had by all.
Beautiful beach!!!!!! with calmed, endless turquoise waters, however the most crowded and touristic of all beaches that we visited. The harbour is a great place to shop and dine or just grab a coffee.
If I had to rate this hotel based on my original encounter with the front desk clerk I would give them a one but luckily I had better experiences during my stay at the hotel. We arrived on Christmas Eve around 10:00 pm. There was no one available to take our luggage to our room and the area was dark leading to the room. A very reluctant and rude security officer took us to a very smelly and old room with mosquitoes literally swarming around the room. We called the front desk and explained the situation and she said there were no other rooms available but she was going to send us some fly spray. Well we waited and no one showed up and when we tried calling the front desk, they refused to answer. So we walked back to the lobby and insisted that they give us another room. The woman insisted that nothing was available. Only when I threatened to call the company we made the booking with she checked again and got us another room but made no attempt to have the security guard help us relocate. She just handed us the keys told us where it was. This person should never be employed in the hospitality industry in my opinion. The only good thing was she upgraded us to a 2 bedroom unit which was very spacious and had all the amenities such as a full kitchen as well as living and dining areas. The rest of the staff was actually very friendly and efficient. Our room was within walking distance to a beautiful beach. There was some restaurants on the beach and also at Jolly Harbor & Marina. We were able to use the facilities at Jolly Beach Resort and there was a supermarket close to the hotel. The hotel has a serious mosquito problem that needs to be addressed. There was a shuttle to take you to the different places mentioned above. We had no problems except for one occasion interestingly when the same front desk clerk was on duty and when we called for pick up she said there was no one available. Although it was within walking distance we ended up taking a taxi back to the hotel.. Except for those two encounters with the clerk we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Hotel is in a great location but seriously needs to be upgraded.
