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.

Good food. Good accommodations. Exceptional staff. But what defined them for us - they took the time to ensure that their Beach area was pristine at all times. Everywhere else we went had beaches covered with trash-infused seaweed. Chabil Mar -- we'll be back!

Is there a meal plan/drink option?
Actually, there are meal plans if you want them. Contact the the resort office via our web site to ask about them. Or, as others have pointed out you can decide from day to day when to eat at the resort or select other conveniently located dining options throughout Placencia Village. A thought crosses our mind as we reply to this question. . . no restaurant? Well, actually there is full dining service for breakfast, lunch and dinner anywhere on the property. Who needs walls and roofs when mother nature provides the best atmosphere and backdrop to your dining experience? You can be served any meals or drinks at the beach-side Cafe Mar, a table in the sand on the beach, on our pier over the Caribbean (which happens to have a palapa roof, pool-side, at the bar/lounge, or on your villa veranda. The choice is yours. Our walls and roofs are palm trees, beautiful gardens and the Caribbean! Come join us and celebrate Belize naturally.
