We loved our stay at Chabil Mar! The entire staff is very friendly & helpful. The security guard recommended multiple restaurants. Merli & Natalie were always happy & super helpful whether it was organizing our tours or finding bandaids for us. Althea was fantastic to work & even drove us to the airport when we left. We stayed in villa 7 which was a beautiful 2nd story, 2 bedroom/2 bath villa overlooking the ocean with a deck on 3 sides. It was beautifully decorated & very private. We really appreciated having a kitchen so we could make our own drinks & have the wonderful leftovers from meals that were too large to finish. The dinners at Chabil Mar were fantastic, tho expensive. There is no restaurant, so you can eat on their terrace or anywhere else on the property. We usually had breakfast on our deck, complete with lizard friends sunbathing near us. Definitely try the lime juice & fry jacks! Our favorite dinner was a private one on the pier to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I would highly recommend it, but book early, they only allow one seating per night. The resort is a short walk from the village of Placencia by beach or road. We walked to town most nights to have dinner ...the Secret Garden, Omar's, and the Barefoot Bar were all fantastic. We loved the gelato at Tutti Frutti as well. ! The snorkeling/diving was great, tho it was very windy for the first 4 days we were there. Our inland tours (Mayan ruins & jaguar preserve) were reserved with a local guide, Gilly, who is super knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Chabil Mar. It's not the cheapest, but you will be well taken care of & have excellent accomodations!
