We stayed in Chabil Mar for one night, but I wish it had been longer - it was a beautifully located property with very roomy and comfortable villas on the beachfront. They were decorated really nicely, with lots of personality and the place had a very relaxed and chilled vibe. Would definitely return.

Reviewed 4 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...

We stayed at Chabil Mar for 1 night, and it was beautiful. The spacious villa was very nicely decorated, with a fabulous balcony with hammock overlooking the swimming pool and beach. The staff were so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We had a meal on the private pier, which was such a beautiful setting. I would definitely return for a longer...

My daughter and I dreamed of a destination wedding and having it at Chabil Mar in Placencia was a dream come true for her. Chris (resort manager), Natalie (wedding planner), and the staff went above and beyond to truly make this such a memorable event. Ceremony on the beach with the ocean in the background was totally epic! Buffet style...

The experience from the time they picked us up from the airport to the time we had to depart really was 5 star service. The property is beautiful, the food is delicious, but best of all is the staff. They made me feel so special and welcome. It's close to the village and there is plenty to do at the...

We stayed in the jungle for 3 days prior to this, so we were ready to be pampered and Chabil Mar did not disappoint. Our condo was beautiful and extremely conformable for the two of us (on our honeymoon). The grounds were gorgeous and it felt like there was hardly anyone there. We ordered room service for breakfast/lunch a few...

We stayed in a very roomy suite with two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was a full kitchen with stove and dishwasher along with a clothes washer and dryer. We have three older children and they were able to add another single bed in the bedroom so we all slept comfortably. There was a large covered deck with a...

It was our first visit to Belize, and we will never stay anywhere else because Chabil Mar is perfect. This resort exceeded all of our expectations from immaculate, beautiful villas to al fresco dining anywhere on the flower and vine filled grounds, this is where you want to be for the ultimate in relaxation. But what we loved maybe the...

After four days in the jungle we stayed for three on the beach. A boutique resort with lovely suites that are fully equipped. Great pool I did laps in.We really liked that there isn't a restaurant and we could order breakfast or dinner poolside, beach side on our deck. One evening we had dinner on the pier and though it...

We stayed at Chabil Mar for 6 days and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The villas are all extremely clean, updated, comfortable, and stocked with everything you need (coffee maker, blender, food processor, juicer, mixer, etc). The rooms are spacious and housekeeping does an incredible job sneaking in after you've left for the day to make everything nice...
