Our trip to Belize and stay at Chabil Mar was amazing and better than we ever imagined. The service was exceptional. Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and always so helpful and available. They really made sure you were happy and enjoying your stay. We always had help at the beach with the paddle boards, a great time at... More

I have never taken the time to review a trip before, but Chabil Mar was so outstanding I had to submit. From handling our flights from BZE to Placencia and ensuring that our kids had the experience of a lifetime - they thought of everything. We were met at the airport for a quick shuttle to the hotel where they... More

My husband and I recently spent 10 nights at this resort and really enjoyed the atmosphere and accommodations. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and we were greeted with rum punch and refreshing face clothes when we arrived. Very nice! We stayed on the second floor in Villa 20, one of the larger, 1 bedroom units with oceanfront.... More

The service was impeccable, the food was good, and the location was perfect for us. We had a two bedroom villa with a deck that had a wonderful ocean view. The ocean, by the way, is only a few feet from the two pools, and there are several lounge chairs with towels always set up and available at the beach.... More

We had an amazing time at Chabil Mar in Placencia! Amazing staff, amazing room and amazing beach and property. We loved all of our time there and can't wait to return. They also went out of their way to make my birthday extra special.

Chabil Mar We arrived in Belize City on time and once our baggage was collected it was over to Maya Island Air and our flight to Placencia which was ten minutes late. We were met by our shuttle driver and then the short drive to Chabil Mar. Arriving at Chabil Mar we were greeted by a staff member outside the... More

We are just finishing 6 nights at Chabil Mar. It has been a fabulous experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it for those planning a stay in Placencia. Rooms: As other reviewers have noted, the units are very comfortable and well appointed. We had a second floor unit (sea view) and it was perfect for us. We sat... More

I love to travel and bookend my reservations at disparate destinations. But the in-between is where most of the real discoveries happen. Chabil Mar was one of the those... Off season in Belize is never off. We wandered and landed a 2 bedroom villa with ocean and pool views for a deal. The staff was outstanding, friendly, fun and genuine.... More

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Chabil Mar. We visited this property because of the strength of the reviews. We were not disappointed. The property is very well maintained, the food good, and the service outstanding. We had no problem with our wireless service, nor getting the room serviced. We flew into Placencia instead of...

I would have liked to give full points but there were a few shortcomings which I found avoidable for a luxury resort. For one, the replacement of beach towels never really worked. Cleaning of the villa sometimes didn't take place until early afternoon. The safe malfunctioned. Upon arrival there were 2 bottles of wine on the credenza. First I thought... More
