We just returned from 9 days at Chabil Mar. It was such a great experience in every respect we won't consider another resort on our next Belize trip-- we will just go there. The ocean front villa (#9) was perfect. The Belize photos by the owners added a nice touch. The reservation process was easy and accurate-- better than many...

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...

Chabil Mar was everything we expected and more! The resort is beautiful, the food is great, and the service is outstanding. My wife and I stayed in Villa #15 and the amenities were exceptional. The villa had plenty of space, the beds and sofas were comfortable, and it was nice to have a fully equipped kitchen. It was also great...

I so wanted to give this place five stars. This place is beautiful. The villas, grounds all the public areas are very clean and well kept. The housekeeping staff was excellent. Every time we had a request it was met with prompt, friendly service. We had a two bedroom villa that had two bathrooms as well as a full kitchen...

excellent views. 2 great pools. Staff was very attentive to any needs that arose. recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxury stay. The only slight criticism would be, to have a large water dispenser in the room... enough for a week. We like our coffee right away in the morning, and generally drink lots of water. very minor.......

What a great resort! As soon as we arrived at the airport, we were greeted with a cool towel and a bottle of water as our luggage was loaded, then whisked off to the resort. We were met at the resort with a rum punch and a quick tour of the property, then off to our villa. The villa was...

Always worried about seeing on web and whether it lives up to the pictures...this place outdid their website! Greated with a smile and a rum drink, given a tour of an amazing facility and led to a beautiful suite to stay in. No central place for a restaurant, they will serve you where you want to eat, pier, pool, deck,...

Steve, you put a smile on our face from the very first sentence. Thank you. We hear quite often that the "real thing" is better than the photos on the web site.
