As always, our experience with the great staff and facilities at Chabil Mar make for the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation one could ask for. If only they could control the weather, but I might add they are as good as anyone in finding the right event for the day.

The entire facility is impeccably maintained and the staff is exceptional. Guests are given individualized personal attention every moment from check-in to check-out by professional, knowledgeable and sincerely friendly staff members. The location is ideal, on a beautiful, quiet beach but within easy walking distance of the village, only 10 -15 minutes along the beach or the road. The private... More

Chabil Mar is a lovely resort located slightly outside of Placencia and directly on the Caribbean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We booked a two bedroom suite right on the beach. It was huge and the kitchen was fully equipped. Not that we were there to cook -- the resort delivers food to you no matter where you are... More

We stayed at Chabil Mar two nights in August. I think this was my third stay at Chabil Mar, and it was as good as ever. The condo suites are first-class, with tasteful upscale decor and fully outfitted down to washers and dryers (handy to have after traveling for a week or two). There are two pools, and the beach...

We spent 4 nights and loved the pools, beach and excursions.
