A grocery store is within walking distance, so we did family breakfasts at the villa. The food served at Chabil Mar was really good, and we like...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

Where to start. Having read previous reviews we knew Chabil Mar would be special. But until we arrived, we were unprepared to be blown away. The staff is friendly, accommodating, professional & total comedians. We think one of the character traits is a serious sense of humor. Prior to our arrival I dealt with Althea and Nikita. But upon arrival...

Our stay at Chabil was great. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms and amenities were very nice. Nakita and staff were very helpful. The only thing was cable would go in and out sometimes. Overall would come again and highly recommend it.

We had an excellent time. We had a large group (12 people, adults and kids) and Nikita and the concierge staff were more than prepared to handle our every need. We planned excursions through her group and loved every guide and event. Ricky was excellent for our ruins/cave tubing and blue hole tour. He was very knowledgeable and provided a...

We just returned from 9 days at Chabil Mar. It was such a great experience in every respect we won't consider another resort on our next Belize trip-- we will just go there. The ocean front villa (#9) was perfect. The Belize photos by the owners added a nice touch. The reservation process was easy and accurate-- better than many...

Chabil Mar was everything we expected and more! The resort is beautiful, the food is great, and the service is outstanding. My wife and I stayed in Villa #15 and the amenities were exceptional. The villa had plenty of space, the beds and sofas were comfortable, and it was nice to have a fully equipped kitchen. It was also great...

excellent views. 2 great pools. Staff was very attentive to any needs that arose. recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxury stay. The only slight criticism would be, to have a large water dispenser in the room... enough for a week. We like our coffee right away in the morning, and generally drink lots of water. very minor.......
