We had a great time in our Villa and the service couldn't be better. The pools were lovely and the free shuttle to down every night from 4-10pm was great. There are free bicycles you can use but there isn't a sidewalk into town which is over a half mile away so we weren't

Helloooooo, Heather! It was so nice to meet you and your family. Glad to hear how much you enjoyed visiting Placencia Village right down the beach. You saw the dolphins! Awesome. They aren't there every day, so it is a wonderful treat when they do visit us. We hope you will visit with us again someday. Until, then Happy 2019 from all of us at Chabil Mar and thank you very much for your wonderful review.

We stayed at Chabil Mar for 6 days in August… 2 villas, 2 families, 10 people (including 6 kids ranging from 10 to 16 years old). The resort was fantastic, the staff superb, and the overall experience exceeded our expectations. Placencia was our second destination in Belize.

Janet, thank you so very much. What can we add to a review that calls their stay at Chabil Mar, "Perfect Paradise"! It was such a pleasure to be a part of and watch you bubble over with enthusiasm for your daily experiences here in Placencia Village and our beach. I want to personally thank you for your comments about our landscaping. I am a gardening/landscaping enthusiast and from the first day I set eyes on Chabil Mar, my jaw dropped as I viewed the incredibel flowers and tropical gardens "right on the beach"! I could go on and on, but this is your review. I just want to say thank you. Of course, we share all of our reviews with our staff. Morris, Daniel (chef), Donniz, Deshaun, Duane and Nikita said to say thank you for the shout out! SEE YOU NEXT WINTER! Happy 2019 to you.
