We had a great time at Chabil Mar. Very warm staff that is attentive and resourceful. Easy to get to town, walk to marina across the street and take part in numerous boating/snorkeling activities. Good for kids too!! We rented a golf cart and trolled around town for dinner/ice cream as well as great coffee at "Brewed Awakening". Town is... More

Absolutely beautiful villas. I wish my home were as nice as the inside of the rooms. Beautifully decorated, and well equipped with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The washer/dryer were more helpful than I could have predicted, and if you want to simply travel light and avoid checking bags, it is a big plus. The location is very close to... More

We stayed at Chabil Mar for our honeymoon over Thanksgiving, and it was an absolute dream! It wasn't the best time of year (it rained most days), but the resort was wonderful. Well-manicured grounds, delicious food, friendly staff, comfortable suites, and an amazing, beach-front view! The only thing I'd change is going in March instead, at the peak of the... More

We stayed for 8 days over Thanksgiving. This is a beautiful small resort and the rooms are outstanding with Villa 1 in a quieter area directly on the beach. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We made all of our excursions with the hotel and did not pay any extra if you have cash. The restaurant will serve you... More

This was a wonderful resort. I could have stayed here and never gone out. We rented a golf cart and we did go into Placencia for dinner once but we ate at the resort most nights. They don't have a sit down restaurant but they will serve you any where on the property. All rooms have large out door patios... More

We stayed at Chabil Mar with family group over Thanksgiving and had a great time. We really liked the location, the staff and the excursions and the fact that kids and families are welcome. Loved the bikes and golf carts to use at our discretion. Dolphins swam along the beach out front and iguanas were around making it a lovely... More

I was on a quest for the best hotel in Placencia that was close to town. My search led me to two finalists, Turtle Inn (the Coppola resort) and Chabil Mar villas. I went for the latter, and after going to Turtle Inn for lunch and drinks one day, I am so glas we went with Chabil Mar. Both resorts... More

I just spent a week in Placencia at Chabil Mar from November 15-22, 2014. My stay in villa #11 was simply paradise. The 2br, 2ba villa was immaculately clean, spacious and decorated beautifully. The beds were very comfortable and had luxurious linens. The on- site restaurant has fabulous food and will serve you in your room, on your patio, by... More

My wife and I had a great stay in Chabil Mar. The staff is extremely friendly, and the grounds are amazing. While you can stay on the property if you prefer, you can also head to downtown Placencia with several options available (walking, biking, or free shuttle service). We would highly recommend staying in Chabil Mar if you are going... More

This was our first time to Belize. There are too many reasons to list them all that made Chabil Mar special. I'll start with their excellent service and assistance on booking, what to bring, and flights. A great welcome and the accommodations were top quality but still a wonderful local flavor. Service and assistance was impeccable. Plenty of beach lounge... More
