Chabil Mar was recommended by friends and we could not be more pleased w/our visit! The resort was beautiful, peaceful & relaxing. The staff was incredibly accommodating. We would recommend to anyone looking to visit Belize. We could not believe how friendly and accommodating every person we met in Belize was. Every restaurant was fantastic! Chabil Mar says yes to...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

Where to start. Having read previous reviews we knew Chabil Mar would be special. But until we arrived, we were unprepared to be blown away. The staff is friendly, accommodating, professional & total comedians. We think one of the character traits is a serious sense of humor. Prior to our arrival I dealt with Althea and Nikita. But upon arrival...

We stayed last year with family. This year it was 2 of us. The staff is lovely and very accommodating. Everyone takes pride in working here. The grounds are beautiful and the beach staff work all day raking sea grass and trimming trees. The housekeeping staff call to see if you require anything. This year I required antibiotics and the...

From the first emails with Althea and Nikita, this place did not disappoint! We were 2 couples who shared the larger beachfront 2 bedroom (villa 20) for a week. One of us was celebrating a big birthday and during our emailing Nikita suggested a private dinner on the pier to celebrate. She even ordered a chocolate cake from town for...

My husband and I just returned from a 5-day stay at the charming and well-situated Chabil Mar. We could not have been more pleased. The suites are very comfortable, the grounds full of flowering plants and everything is kept absolutely spotless. The concierge helped arranged several day trips and we appreciated the quality of them all. The hotel felt so...

This was our first stay at Chabil Mar but our 4th to Placencia. We have stayed in the village and Turtle Inn, but Chabil Mar is our favorite. It was small and quiet, which we liked. I couldn't stop taking pictures because the views (from our porch) were straight out of a travel magazine. The facilities were beautiful and impeccable,...

I am the one who usually plans/books/decides on trips for friends and oftentimes family, but this time because I was just not in a place to make ANY decisions, my good friend did it all - planned/chose/booked everything. Having a little control freak in me never came into play once we passed through those large carved doors that offer entrance...

Our rooms were top notch and the staff was very helpful. Activities were easily arranged and the town was nice and not yet over developed. The food was great. The grounds were nicely maintained. Happy to go back anytime.

Purpose of our trip to "Chabil Mar" Palencia was to attend a destination wedding. We had never been to Belize and "Chabil Mar" made it so worth while. Staff was excellent, food and Villa's outstanding. The view is to die for. Had a crew of around 20 people, and many said they would come back.

A very nice resort with wonderful villas. The unit was well furnished and equipped. It had everything we wanted and the service was excellent. The pier was our favorite place to spend the day. It has shade and usually a great breeze. We had many lunches out there. The staff are some of best we have had in our extensive...
