If you like being treated like cattle waiting in a sea of people to do the simplest things, you won't like this place. The staff at Chabil Mar is ready to meet any reasonable request with a smile and positive response. This peninsula truly is quite a playground with no crowds. You can eat when you want and always get... More

The "villas" are great two bedroom apartments with lot's of space and a nice balcony/terrace. Obviously, the ones overlooking the beach are the best. You can cook your own dinner - although the restaurant is excellent and the food in the village is delcious, too, or just prepare your own breakfast on your terrace, however, most guest just enjoy the...

After arriving by plane at the small Placencia airport, we were whisked away on a less than 5 minute ride to Chabil Mar. Immaculate grooming and tropical plants, along with a tropical drink and a choice of rums greeted us. We were given a tour and some information about the property. Not only is the ocean beautifully green/blue, but the... More

We loved Chabil Mar. Absolutely one of the friendliest places we have ever stayed. Top-notch service and comfort. Everyone in our group of 7 had a great time (4 adults and 3 kids from 3 to 13). I would highly recommend to families and couples alike!

We had such a great time the first week in April. We were there four nights and wanted to stay longer. We had been up in the jungle for a few days prior and this was a great way to finish off our stay in Belize. As most of the reviews state, the management was great, as were the staff... More

Such a wonderful, comfortable place to stay, but what really makes it is the staff, who were universally friendly and helpful and so nice. The location is great, the food was fantastic and it allowed us to enjoy the perfect mix of beach and adventure vacation. All of the trips arranged by Jason were wonderful, with great drivers and guides.... More

Everything was perfect.... the location, the accommodations, the service, the food ... !! We loved it all. We were in unit 1 which was the best we think. Such a luxury to call and have breakfast delivered, after our early morning swim in the ocean and the pool. The staff went out of their way to be helpful.
