The property is beautiful, but the Staff are wonderful. The kitchens are well appointed, and the beds were super comfy. There was always plenty of room on the beach to find a nice oversized beach chair, and the option to have dinner served on the pier is pretty awesome. The restaurant will serve you where ever you wish, so there...

The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The staff is eager to accomodate, happy and friendly. Both infinity pools are beautiful and uncrowded. It is somehow fun, romantic and...

After a nightmare stay at Chaa Creek (see my other review) we had a couple of nights at Chabil Mar. Belize holds a very special place in my family's heart and the staff at Chabil Mar exemplify much of what we love about this country. The resort itself was a wonderful place to let our kids explore and play while...

This was our 6th trip to Belize, but our first trip Placencia. We picked Chabil Mar after reading reviews and talking to folks. Both Placencia and this place are truly wonderful. Placencia is like Ambergris Caye used to be--laid back, uncrowded, cool local places to eat, and things to do if you want and a perfect beach if you want...

My husband and I stayed at Chabil Mar the second week of April and had the most wonderful stay. After staying on Ambergris, we welcomed the laid-back and peaceful atmosphere of Chabil Mar.

If you like being treated like cattle waiting in a sea of people to do the simplest things, you won't like this place.

The "villas" are great two bedroom apartments with lot's of space and a nice balcony/terrace. Obviously, the ones overlooking the beach are the best. You can cook your own dinner - although the restaurant is excellent and the food in the village is delcious, too, or just prepare your own breakfast on your terrace, however, most guest just enjoy the...
