The pictures showed a beautiful property and they were accurate. The exterior is gorgeous the interior of the villas was surprisingly gorgeous with decorated with impeccable taste. However, what...

My twin and I spent our 40th birthday here a few years ago!! They brought us a birthday cake and flowers while singing to us! We literally walked out of our condo to the beach. It felt like our private home. We did trusted excursions recommended by them-- howling monkey tour was the best! Spending a few hours on the... More

Our experience at Chabil Mar was exceptional. The oceanfront Placencia location provided a beautiful setting for our stay. The Villa's interior appointments, property layout, excellent dining and accommodating staff, make Chabil Mar a very special place. We visited with our 10 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed her time in Placencia (no lack of things to do for kids). We... More

What a beautiful hotel and wonderful staff! We just returned from an 8 day family vacation at Chabil Mar, and every single person in our party of 11 agreed it was our best experience yet (and that is saying a lot from a group ranging in age from 8-70!). The property and grounds are impeccably maintained, the villas were comfortable... More

The resort was exactly as shown on the web site and the staff was excellent. As we came as a large group of 8 it was wonderful to have the extra space the villas provided. We arrived late on a Sunday and there was a problem with the room we reserved. The staff asked that we wait until Monday for... More

The resort was beautiful and the staff only added to the experience. The front desk was friendly on check in and was available for any questions or concerns. The food was delicious and each meal we had was perfect. The banana pancakes available for breakfast were amazing and we ordered them every morning. The concierge was helpful and made excellent...
