Our daughter and her husband have been to Chabil Mar a couple of times and urged us to accompany them on their next trip. We did so in September 2016 are are so glad that we did so. The staff is superb--friendly, helpful, and accommodating in every way. From the initial reservation contact until they drop you at the airport,... More

Our wedding took place on August 6th, 2016, three days after Hurricane Earl passed through Belize! Needless to say, we are happy we chose Chabil Mar as our venue for this special moment in our lives! From the moment, we arrived, the staff was exceptional, meeting our every need. Working with a skeleton crew during the hurricane Chabil Mar had... More

What an amazing place to stay while experiencing Belize for the first time!!! The accommodations were ideal - a two bedroom/two bathroom villa with pool & sea views. Full kitchen was recently updated & exceptionally nice! August was a quiet time to be there, but that was perfect. They offered bicycles to ride into the village during the day &... More

Two girlfriends and I went on a girls trip to Belize and stayed in Villa #8 for five nights. We loved it. Our villa had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a nice patio, kitchen, and living room. We were also grateful for the washer and dryer as we needed it after spending prior nights in the jungle. The service is... More

Went as a couple for some R and R in the Honeymoon Suite- loved it!. The staff is wonderful, the place is great and meticulously maintained; the hardest part was leaving! Also, it was very easy to get around Placencia (which we loved too) and do you own thing or take a tour, eat out or shop for your own... More

I cannot say enough positive things about Chabil Mar and the entire staff. We ended our 8 day trip to Belize in Placencia at Chabil Mar for three nights of perfection. The first part of our trip was filled with excursions (fishing, snorkeling, tubing, hiking mayan ruins, ziplining, etc) so we were more than ready to soak up the sun... More

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
