We booked Chabil Mar following the 2014 reviews of Belize - it was considered one of the best small hotels in Belize. Our stay at the Chabil Mar Hotel was for 8 days. In short we were disappointed. We have travelled extensively and this did not live up to our standards of a "luxury hotel". Perhaps it was because we... More

My husband I travel travel a few times a year and this has been one of the best places we have stayed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, quiet and relaxing, villas clean and fully equipped including full size washer and dryers, and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The lunch burrito was the best we have ever had! If you... More

This is a lovely setting, with some very nice units. Not 5 star spectacular, but attractive, pleasant, and engaging. Our view was super, but this may depend a lot on the location of the unit. Wonderful breakfast options, and the "room service anywhere" concept was unique. The dinner menus was limited, especially for vegetarians; other restaurants in the area may... More

Chabil Mar is a hidden gem--We enjoyed it so much, I almost didn't want to write a review for fear that the word will get out. The grounds, pools, bar, and food are all what you would expect from a high quality boutique resort. However, what really sets Chabil Mar apart is the staff. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful.... More

Food, staff, grounds, room, everything wonderful!! You can drink the water. Shower pressure was even great! Staff so pleasant and accommodating. Two infinity pools gorgeous. Very quaint, only 19 villas. Not one bad room.

Chabil Mar is a fabulous resort. We joined two other couples to celebrate my 40th birthday. The resort is beautiful. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful we have ever experienced in our travels. The property has beautiful grounds maintained by Alberto, who has been with Chabil Mar for ten years. The resort is safe and inviting. We stayed... More

everything the other reviewers say is true.....to the site, the staff, and food. i would add that this is not a family resort, maybe teenagers would be okay, but there are better places for them elsewhere. it is a classy resort that caters to upscale folks without any sense of snootiness......folks do not really mingle with other guests so if...

We had a truly wonderful stay at Chabil Mar from the moment we arrived! The staff all greeted us by name (whenever they saw us) and with a warm smile. We stayed in Villa 16 and enjoyed our time on the deck in the hammock as much as our time on the beach or on the pier. Meals are a... More

We visited this incredible resort several years ago and we still cherish our Belize trip as perhaps the best trip we ever took...it's hard to say best but certainly right up there! We went with our kids (at the time in elementary school) and stayed in one of the gorgeous condos at Chabil Mar. The staff could not have been... More

I am giving Chabil Mar a 5-star rating only because 6 is not an option. What a remarkable place. We spent the last 4 nights of our 18-night stay in Belize at Chabil Mar with the intention of pampering ourselves after two weeks in the jungle, and it exceeded our expectations. Chabil Mar includes 22 villas, 2 pools, a bar,... More
