Absolutely gorgeous! Friendliest staff, excellent food, beautiful rooms and a great location. I give it 5 stars! It is on the ocean, has 2 pools, close to the village, super clean rooms, free rides to the village, free kayaks etc and they accommodate everyone. Just lovely.

Chabil Mar is spectacular! The villa we stayed in (18) was absolutely lovely, it was far more than my daughter and I needed! It was a full 1 bedroom apartment with laundry which was amazing, and a full kitchen which I didn't use but was very nice. The staff at this hotel is first rate, everyone was so kind and... More

Fell in love with Belize. Chabil Mar was charming, lovely setting, delicious food, great pier palapas, the staff is OUTSTANDING- especially Nikita and Faura. I recommend eating once at Turtle Inn- quite an experience, very specific atmosphere from visionary Francis Ford Coppola. And really great folk art at the Jaguar gift shop on the right as you enter at the... More

We stayed for 10 days at Chabil Mar. It was so amazing and relaxing and the staff was so accommodating. We spent most of our time just at the resort but its so close to the village that we walked into town a few times and rented a golf cart at the resort to tour a little further north. Dinner... More

Lovely rooms and friendly, supportive staff. Most comfortable beds ever. Even has washer and dryer In the unit! The property is well maintained and very clean with many nice little touches such as flavored water near the pools and fresh flowers on the outdoor tables. Enjoyed our stay immensely.

The staff here is what makes the place AMAZING. You will feel like royalty. EVERYONE here is the best from the cleaning staff, front office, grounds help, severs, bar, drivers and security. I MISS ALL OF THEM like they were my personal friends and not paid to be nice to me. They were all so helpful and nice, I could... More

Service and guest safety is priority one at the Chabil Mar. We stayed there during Hurricane Earl. You really get to a know a place once you've been through a natural disaster with them. Placencia wasn't as hard hit as more northern regions of Belize, but our concern level was still high. The friendly and courteous staff answered our endless... More

Just returned from 4 days at Chabil Mar. It was such a unique resort. The 2 pools were a hit with my kids. Be sure to arrange a dinner on the pier while you are there. They have an amazing kitchen/restaurant. It is unique in that there is no set dining area. You can eat any where on the grounds... More

Our group had an exceptionally wonderful time at Chabil Mar! The staff was extremely helpful, happy and kind. The accommodations were beautiful, spacious and luxurious. No request was too large for them to fulfill. From the moment we were picked up at the airstrip our journey to paradise began. We met so many wonderful people, Chris, Althea, Basilio, Luis, Ryan...

Sometimes the most impressive staff member is the one least seen. Our housekeeper Lizette was outstanding! Coming back from our adventures to such an impeccably clean villa was wonderful. She even found my lost earring and discretely placed it on the counter. Bartenders Deshawn, Luis and Darren were so much fun! Make sure you play “Shut the Box” at the... More
