This resort was beautiful and the service was great. We ate there a few times and found the food to be great as well. After visiting Robert's Grove and The Turtle, we believe that Chabil Mar is the cream-of-the-crop in Placencia. Hope to stay there again.

Chabil Mar is as lovely as advertised. From the first contact with reservations to the last goodbyes the staff are as friendly, gracious and professional everytime. The rooms are huge and well appointed. The resort is spotless and the food is as good as the reviews state. We visited during spring break and the resort seemed virtually empty during the...

All the reviews that are written for Chabil Mar are very true! Believe it! I just want to add a comparison to Turtle Inn. My family stayed at Chabil Mar and my friends stayed at Turtle Inn. I felt very bad for my friends because they got eaten alive by lots of different bugs and they had no A/C. We...

This is a great laid back resort perfect for families. The service and staff are stellar. Great outings - monkey river and snorkeling - conveniently depart from the dock located across the street. The food is really great and varied. Going into town is easy via shuttle or by renting a golf cart. We loved Rumfish in town for dinner....

I met the marketing manager for this property a year ago and he said, "Try Chabil Mar...I think you will like it. Well, Larry, all I can say is....nothing is left out!

We could not have been any more impressed with our experience at Chabil Mar. Staff are courteous, friendly, and cater to your every need, and some you are not even aware of. We highly recommend this resort to any and all. Thank you Chabil Mar!!! Michael and Erin

We stayed here in February and loved it! The staff is wonderful, the food is great and the accommodations are amazing. It is walking distance to town, but not too close to town. It is the perfect distance! Great for morning and evening walks along the beach. A very quiet place that does a nice job making guests feel right...

We stayed for five nights at Chabil Mar March 2014. It was the last stop of a few different accommodations in Belize, and we were happy with it. The room was HUGE. Most people would be happy to live in it as an apartment. We were more than ready for the laundry facilities after some time in Belize, and perhaps...
