We had a wonderful 3 days at Chabil Mar. The staff were great. Our accommodations were lovely. We really appreciate when our family of 5 can be accommodated in one suite. The two bedroom, with a loft with two additional beds was very comfortable. Having two bathrooms is always a plus. The food was delicious. We especially loved eating two...

Wonderful accommodations literally steps from the sand. So much to do--kayak, fish, paddle board, bike--or just beach time. Staff is so friendly and helpful, and food is outstanding. We are very excited to go back!

Our family of 16, ranging in age from 7 to 80 had a marvelous stay at Chabil Mar. We were greeted like family members and treated as such from the moment of our arrival. We had two private parties on site. The first was a family birthday party. The decoration provided by the staff was charming. The food was fantastic...

Chabil Mar was a wonderful resort. Accommodations were top notch. Staff was very courteous and we loved their Belizean way. The food was delish and we suggest having a meal out on the pier. They deliver food to your room, deck or pool. Nikita set up our excursions and dinner reservations. 👍 The grounds are kept up at all times....

Chabil Mar is one of the nicer places in Placencia and I would highly recommend it if you are planning a visit to Placencia. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We were here for a birthday celebration and the staff and management went out of their way to make our visit memorable.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights here and it was a very nice place and location. Service is excellent and very personal.

We visited Belize in November of 2013 and stayed at Chabil Mar. I have search for a place as awesome as this on other islands with no luck. This place is by far our favorite and we have been fortunate enough to travel to many of the Caribbean islands. Things to know: The rooms are like mini apartments. Each unit...

After a long day of driving from San Ignacio, we finally arrived at Chabil Mar where we spent four nights. We noticed our names on the arrival board and were greeted with tropical punch, rum optional. The hostess showed us around the boutique resort and walked us to our room. When we walked into Villa 19 my daughter exclaimed she...

We stayed 3 nights. The reception was very warm, with a cool fruit juice drink to which rum was optionally added. They then gave us a tour of the grounds and the apartment. There are 2 lovely pools and you can swim in the sea from the very tastefully constructed wooden pontoon that stretches out from the decking where you...

This property leaves nothing to be desired. The suite was as comfortable and clean as our own home. It was the staff I really appreciated the most though. They genuinely made us feel welcome and appreciated, which made the difference between a good stay and a great one. If you're wanting to go diving or snorkeling, Splash Dive Center is...
