Thanks to: Sheldon, Darren, and staff ​Chabil Mar is absolutely a five out of five resort. From the second we landed, to the moment we had to leave, we experienced the highest level of customer service. Once getting off the plane, we were handed fresh water and a cold wash

We stayed at Chabil Mar for 6 days in August… 2 villas, 2 families, 10 people (including 6 kids ranging from 10 to 16 years old). The resort was fantastic, the staff superb, and the overall experience exceeded our expectations. Placencia was our second destination in Belize.

Hello, Dan. Thank your wonderful review. Just Perfect is music to our ears. All of the details you comment about were so nice to hear. We do hope that you will honor us with another visit in the near future. Happy New Year to you. PS - There were some really busy days you had with us during the holidays. We'll make sure we keep an eye out on keeping the water glasses flowing and the beach towels out their fresh and warm. Speaking of warm, hopefully you'll come back next winter and take advantage of our endless summer paradise next year too. Cheers!

And we had an amazing time meeting you. Thank you for choosing Chabil Mar for your Belize vacation. Chef Daniel and Marsha (our morning sous chef) said to send you a personal thank you for your comments about your meals. They both got a great big smile on his face we shared your review with him. Happy to hear that you took advantage of our of closeness to Placencia Village. It's always fun for me too, that I can jump on a bicycle to check out the local scene. Morris sends a hello to you. Wishing you a wonderful new year. We sure do hope you will be able to come back and visit with us again soon. Cheers!

You have several options for getting into the town center, which is about a 1/4 mile. You can walk along the beach. You can use one of the complimentary bicycles. (5 minutes) You can use one of the complimentary kayaks. (10 minutes) You can use a complimentary paddle board. (10 minutes) You can rent a golf cart. (3 minutes) You can use the complimentary evening shuttle. (5 minutes) Chabil Mar is the closest full service luxury resort to the Village on the Placencia Peninsula, close enough to access all of the Village culture, daily life, restaurants, gift shops and beach bars, but far enough to maintain your privacy. We look forward to your visit.
