My husband and I stayed her on our honeymoon from September 22nd-29th, and we are so glad we did! It is a beautiful resort, with every amenity that you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. For starters, the van door opened when we got the resort, and before we could even step out, someone was there with two drinks... More

Can't say enough good things about Chabil Mar Villas. This is the perfect destination for honeymooning couples, as our informal polling revealed at least 5 pairs of newlyweds who were there celebrating their recent nuptials. As it was, my friend and I were on a fun girls' getaway but we enjoyed the place just as much and can see why... More

It's hard to imagine a more perfect setting than Chabil Mar. From the first moment that you see your hammock by your room, you'll know that you're in for a relaxing stay. The pools and beach are great and not crowded. There are always plenty of chairs. We also made use of the kayaks which was a lot of fun.... More

Chabil Mar is an exceptional hotel to stay at. I've stayed at several nice hotels in Central America and the Caribbean and found this one to be as good as the best. A couple things really stood out to me--first the attentiveness of all the staff to maintaining the property. Even in the slow season, gardener sand groundskeepers were out... More

If we could give the s place a 7star rating, we would, but 5 is all we can do. The rooms, view and atmosphere are all beautiful, amazing and all other glowing descriptors rolled together, but what sets this hotel apart from the rest is its service. The driver, Lacho, will pick you up from the airport or bus station... More

I really liked staying at chabil mar. I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. The front of the hotel from the main road isn't that impressive, but once you get on the grounds, it's quite lovely. We stayed in probably the best room on the property (I think it was room 6?). second floor, directly facing the ocean... More

We arrived on Sept. 2 to Chabil Mar after actually catching an earlier flight from Belize City. The small plane ride in itself is an attraction because you fly relatively low over the countryside and can see beaches, jungle,shrimp farms, etc. Very cool experience. We arrived at the airport and our driver, Lacho, was there to expedite our luggage and... More

I rarely write reviews, but Chabil Mar was just so spectacular that I wanted to share my experience... 1. The staff was incredible. Everyone was friendly, helpful and really went the extra step to make everything perfect. Natalie is the most competent front desk manager I have ever encountered. Ryan, Lacho, Merli and everyone else whose name I can't recall... More

Friendly staff, amazing accommodations, beautiful place. Food...was sub-par and overpriced. Just don't eat here unless it is for breakfast or a quick lunch. But definitely stay here, it is the best place. Also, every other hotel doesn't have good food or its super over priced, or both.

. I've just returned from a week at Chabil Mar with my husband and two children (ages 6 and 8). We had an amazing time. The resort is beautiful, the rooms were awesome and the staff is friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath villa which was perfect. It had a well-appointed kitchen, a washer and... More
