My husband and I recently stayed at Chabil Mar for four nights and it was a wonderful experience. We had a one bedroom ocean front where we enjoyed sitting on the front porch with views of the ocean. We particularly enjoyed the intimate nature of the resort. It has a very quiet feel, which is what we were looking for. Our snorkeling tours were organized by the resort and were conveniently located across the road with Splash Tours. We dined in nearby Placencia twice, at Rumfish and The Secret Garden, both of which we would highly recommend.
The overall best aspect of our stay were the resort employees. I can't say enough about how they went out of their way to accommodate our wishes. Nothing was ever a problem. From Natalie at the front desk to the bartender to the shuttle driver, they were all fabulous. In our view, you can not go wrong with a trip to Chabil Mar.
There were only two negatives, one which could be fixed and one which cannot, but should be noted. The bedroom A/C rattled extremely loudly, which needs to be looked into (unit 7). The other to note is the beach. I had read that all beaches in Belize have natural seaweed, but I did not realize how much of it there would be. You really cannot swim from the beach.
