My husband and I vacationed at Chabil Mar with our two teenagers and we all had a wonderful time from beginning to end. We look forward to returning! The staff went above and beyond and so very friendly. When you arrive there is a sign welcoming you and a newsletter in the room each day with menu, weather, activities, in... More

Chabil Mar exceeded all expectations. Spacious, clean, beautiful rooms right on the ocean. Every room has a private porch and hammock. The service was impeccable and unobtrusive. Everything is on demand so call if you want dinner on the pier or by the pool, rent bikes for a quick 8-10 min ride into the local village for dinner or drinks,... More

From the welcoming to checking out, this little gem exceeded our expectations. The staff (conceriage, housekeeping, poolside, bar, drivers...) anticipated our every need and were so helpful and accomodating. We stayed in Villa 1 which was beautifully decorated and had a fantastic view. The grounds are immaculate. I loved walking and taking pictures of the butterflies, birds, and flowers! Seaside...

Wow, what a wonderful surprise. The Internet doesn't do justice for this intimate and lovely little resort. Great location - walking distance to town, quiet area and nice beach. Beautiful, fully stocked rooms and very good food from the kitchen. The best part of Chabil Mar are the local folks who work there; for example, Darren, the quick witted bartender... More

The resort was gorgeous and the service excellent! Located right on the beach as we wanted. The room was like a little condo with everything you could possible need. The resort was conveniently close to Placencia Village and you could get there by bike or golf cart. Meals were served to you where ever you wanted around the resort! There... More

What makes this resort (which are privately owned condos) so unique is the fact that there is no central restaurant. You can basically order food or drinks when you want, where ever you want on the property. The staff here are very kind. The only draw back is that I found the drinks were rather expensive.

We stayed here over the busy Lobsterfest. People come from all over the south of Belize. We walked, and rode bikes into town to partake in the festivities. The resort was great in that you just call the kitchen for food and they bring it to wherever you are! Fun concept. Highly recommend.

Chabil Mar is a beautiful property and a great place to vacation. The best thing about it was the service. Every person on the property is there to do one thing - help make your stay great. And they do. From the wait staff, to the cleaning staff, everyone is helpful, friendly and made for a great stay. The only... More

We visited Chabil Mar Villas and had lunch with Nathalie early May this year. They were recommended by a friend from Chaa Creek Lodge and let me tell you, we didn't expect such beautiful place. Perfect location to enjoy the different tours they have in southern Belize. Combine both jungle and sea activities from one place. Excellent!!
