If we could give the s place a 7star rating, we would, but 5 is all we can do. The rooms, view and atmosphere are all beautiful, amazing and all other glowing descriptors rolled together, but what sets this hotel apart from the rest is its service. The driver, Lacho, will pick you up from the airport or bus station...

I really liked staying at chabil mar. I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. The front of the hotel from the main road isn't that impressive, but once you get on the grounds, it's quite lovely. We stayed in probably the best room on the property (I think it was room 6?). second floor, directly facing the ocean...

We arrived on Sept. 2 to Chabil Mar after actually catching an earlier flight from Belize City. The small plane ride in itself is an attraction because you fly relatively low over the countryside and can see beaches, jungle,shrimp farms, etc. Very cool experience. We arrived at the airport and our driver, Lacho, was there to expedite our luggage and...

I rarely write reviews, but Chabil Mar was just so spectacular that I wanted to share my experience... 1. The staff was incredible. Everyone was friendly, helpful and really went the extra step to make everything perfect. Natalie is the most competent front desk manager I have ever encountered. Ryan, Lacho, Merli and everyone else whose name I can't recall...

Friendly staff, amazing accommodations, beautiful place. Food...was sub-par and overpriced. Just don't eat here unless it is for breakfast or a quick lunch. But definitely stay here, it is the best place. Also, every other hotel doesn't have good food or its super over priced, or both.

. I've just returned from a week at Chabil Mar with my husband and two children (ages 6 and 8). We had an amazing time. The resort is beautiful, the rooms were awesome and the staff is friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath villa which was perfect. It had a well-appointed kitchen, a washer and...

My husband and I spend our last 4 days of our honeymoon here at Chabil Mar back in June. We could have spent another week here in Placentia. Our room was simply amazing - comfortable bed, outstanding amenities, beautiful art, and a great bathroom. Our balcony overlooked the pool and ocean, in fact we ate all of our meals on...

What an amazing luxurious place to visit. Amazing location and amazing views! The service was awesome and the rooms lacked nothing! Make sure you ask for Lacho to drive you everywhere as he was the nicest driver you can ever have. Great pools/great food and close to all the action.

This review is long overdue as we traveled to Placencia for 7 nights during Christmas of 2013. Our entire trip and stay at Chabil Mar was amazing. The entire staff is so friendly and willing to help when asked. As with any vacation/beach destination outside of the US, it takes a few days to acclimate to what I like to...

I stayed here for 3 nights and could not have had a better experience start to finish.
