Everything was great- Althea planning the wedding we attended and all its details, Basilio, and Luis especially. Great service, nice grounds and pools. The food was very good, but pricey when all the fees and taxes entered in- we did most of our own cooking which was easy in the well- appointed kitchen.

Just book the room and then you can add in other stuff along the way if you want. Buying a package seems wasteful since they are pretty expensive. We booked 5 nights and a return flight from Placencia to Belize City. It was very relaxing and we LOVED having a washer and dryer in the room. Returning home with clean... More

This resort is the finest place I have had the pleasure of staying. The beauty of the resort and the country is only surpassed by the amazing staff at Chabil Mar. From the fine foods prepared by in house chef, to the hard working groundskeepers who work tirelessly maintaining the resort. Also, my favorite, the food and beverage staff. Namely... More

Every staff member was accommodating and friendly. Our room "honeymoon suite" set right on the beach. You could view the ocean or jump in the pool. It is beautiful! Enjoyed having dinner on the pier. The food is excellent. I cannot say one negative statement about Chabil Mar. I love visiting Placencia, can't wait to return.

From the grounds to the room to the staff and the food, this place is top notch!! The most peaceful vacation I've ever had. I would move in if I could. Thank you to everyone who made our stay a little piece of paradise! The room had every amenity needed to make it feel just like home.

Readers Digest version, Chabil Mar was excellent. We had Villa #2, 2 bedrooms/2 baths and a loft (with 2 beds) for 5 of us. Full kitchen, AC, nice TV and wifi, pier, 2 pools, warm sea water. But the best part is the people working there and the surroundings. Bar staff (thanks Darren and Deshon) were friendly, helpful, social. Food... More

From the moment we arrived at Chabil Mar, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. We were blown away by the unique and beautiful rooms, and the spectacular layout of the resort itself. We felt cared for every moment, the staff is wonderful - very attentive and caring. Of all the resorts our family has been too, Chabil... More
