This is a review long coming. Obviously pre-pandemic. Chabil Mar was wonderful, stayed there almost a year ago now but the memory lives on. The staff were lovely, there is a lot of charm to the place. Can either walk on the beach, borrow a bike or use the shuttle to get to the little seaside town which is also quite charming. They have a concierge and lots of activities available to plan. Our villa was amazing and just so enjoyable all around.

Hotel's Favorite
Chabil Mar far exceeded my expectation. It is a real jewel set in a tropical paradise. Our villa had everything we needed for a week, and it could not have been more beautiful. It was decorated to perfection, expansive, open, and meticulously kept. The service was superb and every single member of the team, from the housekeepers to the wait staff, was cordial, friendly, and helpful. We had breakfast delivered to our villa every morning. The choices offered something for everyone's tastes and the breakfast was always great. We had two porches with our villa. One had a table for four and the other had comfortable, casual outdoor furniture and a hammock. The sunrise and sunset pictures I took from the porches turned out stunning, and I had a view the beautiful grounds, the beach, the ocean and several small islands. There were two infinity pools to choose from, kayaks, and paddle boards. Chabil Mar was the prettiest place I saw in Placencia Village. It was one of the best places I have ever stayed.

I am reluctant to write this review since I don’t want to compete with others booking my slot for me next family vacation to Chabil Mar. This place is absolutely amazing. First and foremost, Chabil Mar is located in Placencia which is about 2 ½ drive from Belize City or 30 minute puddle jumper airplane. Transportation is widely available land or air. Where do I start… 1- This is a small resort where you find or feel that the servicing staff is almost 1 to 1 for every guest. Everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating. Example… We took in some sun too much one day and the staff noticed the same (we didn’t ask). The staff picked a fresh Aloe stalk from their onsite landscaping to rub on the burns. 2- Food is amazing and cooked to order. It’s not out of the ordinary to see the staff picking herbs or fruits grown on the property to go into the meal or your drinks (Can’t get any fresher than that). 3- Property is calm, peaceful and tranquil with no riff raff. 4- Views are spectacular from the property which has a deck right on the water. You can eat any meal on there. 5- I’m a fisherman and ended up fishing off the dock every morning and night. They have 4-5 foot tarpon mixed in with some barracuda hanging around the deck lights at night. Staff will direct you to a place in town where you can pick up a cheap fishing pole and gear (e.g. $30 US). 6- There are various toys that are completely included in your stay which include bikes for strolls into town, Kayaks (single and double) and snorkel gear (which is quite nice view in the blue water). 7- The hotel rents golf carts which is primary mode of transportation in town. If you want a break from the peace of Chabil Mar 8- There are two pools located on site which are infinity overlooking the Caribbean. 9- Short distance into Placencia village which you can either walk, drive, bike, golf cart or just ask the staff and they will take you via shuttle for free. 10- Rooms are very nice and all unique equipped with everything to include stove, oven, microwave, full sized refrigerator, comfortable beds and daily cleaning service. Security – Placencia is very safe with my family taking many midnight strolls on the beach into town. Chabil Mar adds another layer of safety by having a guard walk the beach all day and night. As indicated, I did a lot of fishing from the dock and the security guards were not always visible but were great resources of where the fish are. There is really no comparison with this place as Belize is considerably different than other popular locations such as Mexico. This place can be taken in with your own pace whereas some other “all-inclusive or like” properties treat their guest like huge herds of cattle with buffets, activities and thousands of people on the property. Lets put it this way, I have been going to Chabil Mar religiously over the past 3 years and see the same staff members and often find other repeat guest that vacation with us around the same time. This place will not disappoint.

Villa beautiful, super clean and great appliances and set up. Beds very comfortable. Temperatures easy to regulate. Food excellent, service the very best. One of our best trips ever -- having been to Panama, Galapagos, Mexico, Nieves and many other places. Bikes, golf carts, paddle boards and kayaks all accessible and easy to use.

Thank you for choosing Chabil Mar for your Belize vacation and for posting the review. We are always so pleased to read about our villas and their amenities. So many reviews do not include that information since our service gets so much attention. We really appreciate it. We hope that you will come back again to make another "best trip ever" moment with us. We wish you all the best during this very difficult time. Be safe and one with Chabil Mar.

I can’t say enough about our stay at Chablis Mar. Our villa was beautiful, well stocked and immaculately clean. The beds were so comfortable! The staff couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. The gardens were just gorgeous. Such a beautiful setting. I would highly recommend a stay here!
