We shared a beach front, 2nd floor, 2 bedroom unit with sleeping loft. The unit and outdoor spaces are all tastefully decorated and well appointed. On-site restaurant serves at any of the poolside or beach sites. Friendly accommodating staff.

Absolutely beautiful grounds for the resort. The location is excellent - close to Placencia but far enough away to ensure quiet and privacy. The staff were friendly beyond what could reasonably be expected or required purely for the sake of the job. Truly this was the best part. I would highly recommend this venue to travelling couples and families.

My wife and I spent a week at Chabil Mar, and loved the Resort and the funky little town of Placencia, with its wonderful living sidewalk. Chabil Mar has everything: sunbathing, pier, spa, 2 infinity swim pools, kayaks and paddle boarding, catered dining and bar service anywhere on the property. Golf. Carts are available (only by the day at the... More

This is an amazing hotel. The villas are very spacious, with full kitchens (which are somewhat unnecessary), washer dryers, decks, living rooms, etc. The service was fantastic. Everyone from the concierge, to the bartenders to the front desk were always smiling and very helpful. Renting a golf cart is a great way to be able to get back and forth... More

Comfort, location, service, amenities are the best in these luxury villas. Dining has become first-rate and complimentary breakfast is excellent. Well-equipped kitchen. Privacy. Easy access to Placencia, pleasant and low-key with good restaurants. We stay here repeatedly, because it cannot be topped in Belize.

This is our second time coming to Chabil Mar (first was on honeymoon). We brought four friends of ours because we had such memorable experiences. This visit has exceeded the first. Chabil Mar's staff is beyond anything I've ever experienced. The villas are beautiful and the grounds are immaculate. It's perfectly located with a short ride into the village, but... More

Thank you to all the staff at chabil mar! Everyone made our trip perfect. This was my best vacation ever. Already planning trip next year. The views are amazing! The rooms are beautiful and very comfy! Wendy's in town is wonderful place to eat, but could stay and eat every meal at chabil mar.

We had an amazing stay at one of the most peaceful places we have ever seen. We were greeted at the airport by a staff member and driven the couple of miles back to the resort. Once we arrived back at the resort we were greeted by another couple of staff members, welcoming us with drinks. Everyone throughout our stay... More

We were delighted with our stay at Chabil Mar. The location is beautiful and just a short walk down the beach to Placencia. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, and the resort is tidy and full of flowers with two infinity pools. Our villa was our home base for snorkeling and other activities arranged through the resort. The staff was... More

Chabil Mar is a great little resort on the coast just north of Placencia. The 2 pools, small grounds and great service from the staff gave us a great beach holiday. We were there over New Year and the team put on a great show for us. Some of the staff even sang for us which was pretty cool.
