I was blown away by the service and beauty of Chabil Mar. We arrived after a long drive from the Cayo district. We were greeted at the car by the hotel staff and loved the sign welcoming our family. We were given an orientation tour of the resort and taken to what I thought was a welcome center for a... More

This was our second trip to Belize. On our first visit we stayed at Coco Beach on Ambergris Caye. We had a wonderful trip on our first visit, but our room was very average. Chabil Mar was so much more awesome. The room was so very much better. On a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best... More

We just returned from a week in Placencia, and a wonderful stay at the Chabil Mar. Our villa was No. 11, and it was awesome. The location on the second level gave us a perfect view of the grounds, one of the pools, and the ocean. The villa was immaculate, and daily housekeeping kept it spotless. The entire Staff was...

Chabil Mar was the perfect place for my sister and I to enjoy a weeklong getaway. We stayed in a two bedroom partial sea view villa. The view was perfect. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous at all times. We felt like we had been invited to someone's home. The food was stupendous. There was a daily special entree... More

Loved Chabil Mar. Beautiful condo like facility with everything you need including washer and dryer. I could have stayed for months. Excellent and varied meal choices delivered to your patio or a table by the pool or beach. Breathtaking grounds and friendly capable staff. Natalie at the front desk is the nicest person in the world. Always smiling and always... More

Fantastic. My wife and I travel frequently; this is one of the best hotels we have visited. Terrific rooms, good food, and perfect service. It is across the street from an excellent dive shop. We used bicycles to ride into town, but I hated leaving Chabil Mar.

We had villa 19, two bedroom, two bath with full kitchen including a washer and dryer. The rooms are beautiful with beautiful tile in the bathrooms and granite countertops in the kitchen with updated appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The restaurant on site was superb. We had a nice dinner on the pier one night. The bartender Deshaun was... More

We loved Chabil Mar! Right on the beach and tip top service. The rooms were like condos and included everything. The service was excellent. The location was perfect so we could easily go to Placencia Village for restaurants and massages! We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed in the honeymoon suite. It was nice, had a full kitchen and two bathrooms. The air conditioning was a life saver. The grounds are well kept and they must spray for bugs. If you walk down the beach to town make sure you have put on plenty of insect repellent because not every place sprays. Dinner on the... More

See what I did there?! With the "Marvelous?" I'll be here all week ;) All kidding aside, I'd highly recommend Chabil Mar. In all honesty though, I'm not sure if I'd recommend vacationing to Placencia...at least when we were there at the end of June. The lobster festival had just ended and it felt like a ghost town. If we... More
