This was my second stay at Chabil Mar in Placencia, Belize and if possible, it was even better than the first.
The staff is second to none when it comes to service. Natalie and Althea (front office) and Amin, Fermin, Richard, and Danny (wait staff) will ensure that all of your needs are met and do so with incredible personalities and smiles. Although I did not catch any of their names, I also need to mention the groundskeepers and maintenance crew. They did an incredible job of keeping the resort in pristine condition. This year's trip featured something really special...chef Isaac. We spent a day fishing at the reef and brought back tuna, dorado (mahi-mahi), and snapper. Chef Isaac cooked the fish to perfection in three different styles and produced one of the best meals that I have ever had. It was definitely a dinner that I will always remember!
The location of Chabil Mar is perfect. It is a short walk or golf cart ride to the fishing village of Placencia. The resort is ocean front but also provides fantastic views of the lagoon (on the west side) and the Mayan mountains. The units at Chabil Mar are the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. The are spacious both inside and out (large porches with dining areas and lounge chairs). The units condo all of the modern amenities however, we did not turn the TV on a single time in the week that we were there. We were too busy enjoying the pools, the bar, and the beach!
If you are looking to experience Placencia but do not want to sacrifice luxury, I would highly recommend Chabil Mar.
