Chabil Mar is a really pretty resort. We had a room with a deck right on the beach. There's a dock out to a little covered platform. We took an amazing snorkel trip and swam with sharks and rays and turtles. And the snorkeling was better than any we've seen in the Caribean.

From the minute you go through the gates at Chabil Mar your every request is taken care of. Nikita at the concierge desk is delightful as is each and every member of the staff. She can handle any tour you would like to take and I would suggest Splash, right across the street to go diving. We had six people...

My 6 grandchildren and I spent 4 nights at Chabil Mar, or I should say 4 nights in Paradise. Our accommodations overlooked a beautiful, clean beach where the kids could swim and go kayaking or paddle boarding. There are also 2 pools but we all preferred the treat of the beach. The staff is terrific - so friendly and helpful....

Chabil Mar is a lovely resort. So lovely, we booked our villa again next year. The staff helpful and very friendly, especially Sheldon (Superman), the beach guy and Darren, the bartender. The accommodations are spacious and well appointed. It is easy to get to the grocery store, if needed and walking into town is easy either by beach or road.

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...

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.
