We had a truly wonderful stay at Chabil Mar from the moment we arrived! The staff all greeted us by name (whenever they saw us) and with a warm smile. We stayed in Villa 16 and enjoyed our time on the deck in the hammock as much as our time on the beach or on the pier. Meals are a...

We visited this incredible resort several years ago and we still cherish our Belize trip as perhaps the best trip we ever took...it's hard to say best but certainly right up there! We went with our kids (at the time in elementary school) and stayed in one of the gorgeous condos at Chabil Mar. The staff could not have been...

I am giving Chabil Mar a 5-star rating only because 6 is not an option. What a remarkable place. We spent the last 4 nights of our 18-night stay in Belize at Chabil Mar with the intention of pampering ourselves after two weeks in the jungle, and it exceeded our expectations. Chabil Mar includes 22 villas, 2 pools, a bar,...

My husband, myself and our 21 yr. old son spent six nights at Chabil Mar. Although the weather wasn't stellar, we still had a fantastic time. We stayed in Villa 13 and it was quiet and comfortable. The beach area is lovely and we made use of the paddle boards and kayaks. The service at Chabil Mar is truly seamless...

Chabil Mar is a beautiful resort in the beach village of Placencia. The air conditioned villas are spacious, with fully stocked kitchens. The staff members are incredibly friendly and clearly love working there. All speak English since it is the official language of the country. The hallmark of the resort is the landscaping with a stunning array flowers, bushes, and...

We spent four nights here and this is by far the best place to stay near Placentia Village. Rooms were excellent and had air conditioning.

We really enjoyed our three-night stay at Chabil Mar in unit 8. It was the perfect amount of space, had a really comfortable King bed, offered a great location in Placencia and was nice for laying by the beach or pool (there are two medium-sized pools). The service was also topnotch. We didn't quite realize in advance that the property...

Chabil Mar Villas is a beautiful small resort with attractive villas and wonderful gardens. The staff were excellent, attentive and always very pleasant and accommodating.

We just got back from spending a week there over the holidays. What a wonderful small resort where you really get to know the staff.
