Overview

Chabil Mar - Placencia - Bedroom
2
9.6 Excellent (139 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Placencia, this beachfront resort is in the historical district and within a 5-minute walk of Placencia Peninsula and Placencia Beach. Belize Barrier Reef is 1.3 mi (2.2 km) away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of our favorite vacation stays ever. This was our splurge on our trip to Belize and we were so delighted. Everything was gorgeous, well run and you will feel pampered. The beach is very well kept and the two pools and pier are gorgeous places to relax. I spent one whole day on the pier and my two teenagers and husband went back and forth from hammocks, the room/condo, the pool, and the pier. We didn't coordinate when we ate. Everyone just ordered food when and where they liked and that was really a vacation from the vacation. The staff are so professional and attentive. And a huge bonus to housekeeping and the office staff for mailing us some left-behind items.
Cons: The only down side is more about Placencia than about Chabil Mar - when there is no breeze, the water can feel more lake-like than ocean and the bugs can be bad. If there's a nice wind, there is some surf and the bugs are kept at bay. Also, you can technically walk to town but it's along the one main road and not a super pedestrian friendly walk.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff & manager were outstanding! We especially loved the attention & care Anselmo, Nikita & Eva gave us. Chris, the manager was very nice & informed us of a possible tsunami. We thought he was kidding! He said the top wave height would be 3 feet if it even happened. Anyway we will recommend Chabil Mar to all as we wish we were there now! Anselmo thanks for everything! You are kind & wonderful.
Cons: Wish they had a gym. Although the outdoor sports, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling & swimming were available the best parts.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This property exceeded my expectations. The location is A1, the property and grounds are fantastic. Beautiful villas situated in the most wonderfully kept gardens. The villas are beautifully furnished with every you may need. The staff are fantastic and make you feel really at home. A little oasis right on the beach and so close to Placencia.
Cons: I think the only thing that you can improve on is the happy hour. This is not really a happy hour reducing the drinks by $1 does not make me happy.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We celebrated my son’s 8th birthday with a family dinner on the pier. The staff and chef went above and beyond what we anticipated. When my son left his stuffed animal in the room the day we left, they were even kind enough to airmail it back to us. Truly great resort! We will be back.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff was kind, exceptionally professional and promptly attentive. I loved the hibiscus
Cons: I didn’t realize that this eco-friendly hotel didn’t offer air conditioning which compromised our mid-July stay comfort level. We had several fans in our room which helped. The hotel was a bit sophisticated for my more casual teenage children.

They pick you up from the airport and help with booking and restaurant choices. You feel like you’re visiting an old friend. Breakfast includes hard boiled eggs and cheese- very nice to have protein on a continental breakfast!
Cons: Sometimes it rains.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Small hotell with friendly staff and excellent location right on the beautiful beach. We had a nice room on the ground floor with a terrace facing the sea and with a few steps down to the beach with sun loungers. There were a few kayaks that you could borrow. The town is rather small but has some shops and good restaurants and the hotel is in a good location in the town with a few minutes of walking on the narrow walkways to anywhere in town. Breakfast was served on the rooftop terrace.
Cons: It was a bit difficult to find the hotel, so call ahead and they will send someone to the main road to meet you.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate my plans - even starting breakfast earlier than normal so I could make my tour in time. They serve a full breakfast that includes coffee/tea, juice, fruit, and other rotating items. It is served on the rooftop which has an amazing view over the ocean. There was an issue with one of the a/c units in my room and they quickly took care of it by installing a window unit so the room stayed cool. The staff greeted me by name and were very friendly and helpful with recommendations of local restaurants and tour companies. The property is right on the ocean - literally steps away from the hotel. I enjoyed listening to the waves come in while laying in the hammock on my balcony. Highly recommended!

Cons: Absolutely nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Family run business. Owners were warm and welcoming. My sister is a local so we were travelling with her dog. Sharon took the time to introduce her dogs to our pup to ensure that they were acquainted and even gave us a dog bed!!! I had forgotten my phone charger at my sisters place and Sharon also graciously lent me hers. I truly appreciated this because I wouldn’t have been able to catch so many beautiful pictures. The treehouse we stayed in was clean, fresh and new looking, the grounds were also beautiful and the food was delicious!
Cons: No complaints.
9.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food is superb.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location, well kept facility, relaxing. 2 miles from town and next to the small airport. We found it fun to watch the small planes take off over the water at the airport next to the beach. Excellent restaurant and Staff is spectacular. Bruce and Sharon (Owners) are always present and very helpful. Thank you!! We loved your place!!
Cons: The included breakfast turns out to be better than you think when you first take a look - you can order eggs and fruit. But some variety might be good. Maybe a bench out near the parking lot for people waiting to be pick up for tours etc. Hard to find anything not to like!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Peaceful, lovely beach, very well maintained, very and helpful nice staff, free bikes and kayaks.
Cons: Seemed a bit overpriced given prices on Belize for nonseaview rooms. Breakfast got a little monotonous - same thing everyday and baked goods not very good.

9.2 Excellent (423 reviews)

Our accommodations range from simple queen rooms to king suites to 3-bedroom units.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and the food was great
Cons: The tap water is not drinkable and has a bad smell. This requires you to retrieve water from the front bar after you run out of the small bottle supplied in the rooms
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff and facilities were very good. The Bistro is well known for the best meals in area.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Property was beautiful and in a good location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The apartment was surprisingly quiet being above the restaurant, or bistro. You would believe you are in a very secluded area. Very private, huge rooms, nice deck off the master bedroom. Beds were comfy, kitchen was stocked. The staff was incredibly accommodating. The beach was fantastic! Snorkeling right off the beach. We swam with stingrays mere feet from the beach! The water is warm and shallow to the end of the long dock. The location was perfect! Walking distance to bowling and a grocery store... a bit farther to putt-putt golf. 20 minutes, at most, to the main tourist town. BUT the best part was the bistro. They have received Wine Enthusiast awards for the past 10 years!!! Food was better than most of the 5 star restaurants in Seattle! Breakfast and dinner were beyond amazing- an event, not just a meal. It is impossible to describe the perfect trifecta of ambiance, quality of food and wine, and the staff. They also have an espresso machine!!!
Cons: The only complaint, if that, was the room was light on the toiletries, but I brought my own shampoo and conditioner anyway. And if you didn't the store was a short walk away!!!! Just loved this place!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service, amazing food, incredible sea view (we were in Flip Flop Palace). I don’t think I have slept that good in many years. They booked our local flight, picked us up at the airport and set us up on a couple of great excursions. I highly recommend the Maya Beach Hotel!!
Cons: Everything was perfect
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great space. Beautiful beach right outside the door. Raked every morning. Although we did not snorkel heard from others that it was great. Fabulous restaurant on site. Staff friendly and responsive to requests.
Cons: The actual space....while large and comfy was showing wear and age. Kitchen and bathroom were especially looking worn. Despite that....loved our stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice small hotel situated under tree canopies right by the beach. One of the best restaurants in Placencia. Ask for staying at a stand-alone building, it has its own pool.
Cons: Beds are somewhat squeaky, mattresses might be upgraded, too.

7.9 Good
Pros: The most amazing staff ever!!
Cons: Needs some updating. We had trouble with the AC in the room and the shower head.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We stayed for our honeymoon and they were able to upgrade our room for a couple of nights to the suite for a small fee which was lovely! The food especially lunch and dinner were great, and the bar men took a lot of pride in their wide range of delicious cocktails. The pool and beach area always clean as well as the rooms themselves. The onsite mini golf and water activities were a nice time pass too. Overall really recommend this resort in Placencia.
Cons: The only thing i have to say was that the wifi was poor at the time we stayed due to some technical problem which unfortunately was not fixed at the time. But they were very apologetic about this. The village itself was about a 10 min drive away (10 USD cab each way) which is a bit of a shame if you want to venture into the village to eat/explore regularly, unless you hire a golf cart for a reasonable charge.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful location and absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Expensive. But you get service to go with it.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Oceanfront room was amazing. Beautiful room with oversized soaking tub and luxurious outdoor shower. No detail was overlooked.
Cons: The location was remote and far from town, approx 20min taxi ride if you want to dine off the property.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Pictures on the web site don’t give it justice. The beach front bungalow are right on the beach with unobstructed view of the Caribbean Sea. The staff was courteous, polite and always smiling. Don’t hesitate to ask them about things to do or see in Placencia and surroundings. The spa was experience was wonderful with a great staff and location in the midst of lush tropical scenery and water. If you are into yoga I recommend the little onsite studio. Great teacher. The dining in was great with fantastic local food. Thumbs up to the smoke red bell Pepper soups and the freshness of the seafood.
Cons: The mosquitoes.

Cons: The ocean and beach were not suitable for swimming water was dirty and murky. Pool had no shady areas to sit and relax you were always in the sun.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous views, plenty of space and nice manicures plants
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service and hospitality from the moment I was in touch with the resort after booking. So helpful with anything that you may need, from airport bookings/transfers and activity reservations. The property was very nice, a little removed from the hustle and bustle that may be encountered at other resorts. Naia definitely does not skip details. My beachfront room/casita was even better than the pictures depicted. I fell in love as soon as I walked in! The bed! The bathroom and soaking tub! The outdoor garden shower! I truly feel that Naia had the right idea when it came to property planning and unit design. The yoga studio and instructor was amazing. The spa— wow! The spa experience was AMAZING - the facilities are tucked among mangroves and staff are unmatched. The meal options at the on site restaurants were great as I ate on the property for all meals and each one was delicious! The restaurants even attracted non-Resort guests to dine. The only regret I had was not partaking in any off-site excursions - however as a solo traveler with most (if not all) options requiring two people minimum and it was a slower/low season, I was limited - which was fine since the purpose of my trip was for relaxation and there was much to keep me occupied on the property. I’m already looking forward to a future stay at Naia.
Cons: That I left sooner than LobsterFest was to begin! More lighting on the property - hard to see on the walk back to my building after dinner (especially being alone!). Unpredictable timing of housekeeping - one day the staff came at 11:30am, another day it was 2:30! So it was just easier for me to hang a “Do not disturb sign”. Otherwise, it was a nonissue!

Pros: We especially enjoyed the small-scale of the accomodation, even when full it doesn't feel like it's busy. Perfect place to relax and enjoy. If you don't feel the need to explore you easily can stay without leaving the accomodation. The restaurant offers a good selection of choices ( and has daily specials ) which exceeds the standard-offers at other places. There is a supermarket within a few meters away and public transport to and forth Placencia passes several times a day. Even better the property has bikes available for short trips....

Overview Reviews
Located in Placencia, this beachfront resort is in the historical district and within a 5-minute walk of Placencia Peninsula and Placencia Beach. Belize Barrier Reef is 1.3 mi (2.2 km) away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of our favorite vacation stays ever. This was our splurge on our trip to Belize and we were so delighted. Everything was gorgeous, well run and you will feel pampered. The beach is very well kept and the two pools and pier are gorgeous places to relax. I spent one whole day on the pier and my two teenagers and husband went back and forth from hammocks, the room/condo, the pool, and the pier. We didn't coordinate when we ate. Everyone just ordered food when and where they liked and that was really a vacation from the vacation. The staff are so professional and attentive. And a huge bonus to housekeeping and the office staff for mailing us some left-behind items.
Cons: The only down side is more about Placencia than about Chabil Mar - when there is no breeze, the water can feel more lake-like than ocean and the bugs can be bad. If there's a nice wind, there is some surf and the bugs are kept at bay. Also, you can technically walk to town but it's along the one main road and not a super pedestrian friendly walk.

You are kind & wonderful.
Cons: Wish they had a gym. Although the outdoor sports, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling & swimming were available the best parts.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This property exceeded my expectations. The location is A1, the property and grounds are fantastic. Beautiful villas situated in the most wonderfully kept gardens. The villas are beautifully furnished with every you may need. The staff are fantastic and make you feel really at home. A little oasis right on the beach and so close to Placencia.
Cons: I think the only thing that you can improve on is the happy hour. This is not really a happy hour reducing the drinks by $1 does not make me happy.

Pros: We celebrated my son’s 8th birthday with a family dinner on the pier. The staff and chef went above and beyond what we anticipated. When my son left his stuffed animal in the room the day we left, they were even kind enough to airmail it back to us. Truly great resort! We will be back.

Pros: We received a very warm welcome and all staff throughout said hello and remembered our names. Our Lodge was very spacious and comfortable with a seated area in the main room and on the verandah. We ate in all restaurants and the food was delicious and well presented. I had a massage (best I’ve ever had). It was great watching the pelicans fishing at sunset whilst sipping cocktails.
Cons: The only drawback was our lodge was close to the road and at times it was a bit noisy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property with outstanding service. One of the most romantic villas. The grilled fish at the Belizean restaurant on site was so good. Make sure you make a wish!
Cons: I wish I had more time there.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Staff was kind, exceptionally professional and promptly attentive. I loved the hibiscus
Cons: I didn’t realize that this eco-friendly hotel didn’t offer air conditioning which compromised our mid-July stay comfort level. We had several fans in our room which helped. The hotel was a bit sophisticated for my more casual teenage children.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was incredible, the staff are all so friendly and helpful and the location is unbeatable! I would certainly recommend the turtle inn.

9.2 Excellent (423 reviews)
Overview Reviews
The Maya Beach Hotel and Bistro occupy a small beachfront slice of the Placencia Peninsula. Our natural beach is covered in coconut palms, almond and seagrape trees, giving you the perfect balance of natural shade and warm sunlight. Our accommodations range from simple queen rooms to king suites to 3-bedroom units.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Uncluttered, friendly, units right in the beach, kayaks, snorkel equipment, SUP for use and best food on the peninsula.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and the food was great
Cons: The tap water is not drinkable and has a bad smell. This requires you to retrieve water from the front bar after you run out of the small bottle supplied in the rooms
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff and facilities were very good. The Bistro is well known for the best meals in area.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Property was beautiful and in a good location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The apartment was surprisingly quiet being above the restaurant, or bistro. You would believe you are in a very secluded area. Very private, huge rooms, nice deck off the master bedroom. Beds were comfy, kitchen was stocked. The staff was incredibly accommodating. The beach was fantastic! Snorkeling right off the beach. We swam with stingrays mere feet from the beach! The water is warm and shallow to the end of the long dock. The location was perfect! Walking distance to bowling and a grocery store... a bit farther to putt-putt golf. 20 minutes, at most, to the main tourist town. BUT the best part was the bistro. They have received Wine Enthusiast awards for the past 10 years!!! Food was better than most of the 5 star restaurants in Seattle! Breakfast and dinner were beyond amazing- an event, not just a meal. It is impossible to describe the perfect trifecta of ambiance, quality of food and wine, and the staff. They also have an espresso machine!!!
Cons: The only complaint, if that, was the room was light on the toiletries, but I brought my own shampoo and conditioner anyway. And if you didn't the store was a short walk away!!!! Just loved this place!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service, amazing food, incredible sea view (we were in Flip Flop Palace). I don’t think I have slept that good in many years. They booked our local flight, picked us up at the airport and set us up on a couple of great excursions. I highly recommend the Maya Beach Hotel!!
Cons: Everything was perfect
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great space. Beautiful beach right outside the door. Raked every morning. Although we did not snorkel heard from others that it was great. Fabulous restaurant on site. Staff friendly and responsive to requests.
Cons: The actual space....while large and comfy was showing wear and age. Kitchen and bathroom were especially looking worn. Despite that....loved our stay.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice small hotel situated under tree canopies right by the beach. One of the best restaurants in Placencia. Ask for staying at a stand-alone building, it has its own pool.
Cons: Beds are somewhat squeaky, mattresses might be upgraded, too.

Pros: We went back to Laru Beya because it was so beautiful. This time we stayed for a longer time and with more family members, and it was exceptional again. Thanks to the friendly staff, particularly to Mildred for resolving efficiently the issues we had.
7.9 Good
Pros: The most amazing staff ever!!
Cons: Needs some updating. We had trouble with the AC in the room and the shower head.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We stayed for our honeymoon and they were able to upgrade our room for a couple of nights to the suite for a small fee which was lovely! The food especially lunch and dinner were great, and the bar men took a lot of pride in their wide range of delicious cocktails. The pool and beach area always clean as well as the rooms themselves. The onsite mini golf and water activities were a nice time pass too. Overall really recommend this resort in Placencia.
Cons: The only thing i have to say was that the wifi was poor at the time we stayed due to some technical problem which unfortunately was not fixed at the time. But they were very apologetic about this. The village itself was about a 10 min drive away (10 USD cab each way) which is a bit of a shame if you want to venture into the village to eat/explore regularly, unless you hire a golf cart for a reasonable charge.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful location and absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable.
10.0 Excellent

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Room was great (aside from the locking bedroom door) super comfy! Great location to get around easily
Cons: The bedroom door had a separate lock on it that required a key we were not provided. After 3 hours we could not get in and had to stay in another room for the night. Was a tad frustrating but it all worked out
5.0 Okay
Pros: Really lovely modern apartment! Great location near a lot of bars and restaurants. Really impressed with how clean and nicely decorated the apartment was. However, on our second day the manager charged me twice for the room, so 2 x $400 was taken from my account. I was made aware by my bank. When I spoke to the manager about this she said it was a mistake and that she had voided it straight after, 24 hours later the money is still not back in my account. It concerned me that this type of mistake could be made and that they can help themselves to money from my account without my signature or permission. Understandably mistakes can be made, however this was done at 9am and they had plenty of opportunity to inform me of this. this was never communicated to me nor apologised for until I flagged it due to the contact from my bank. Upon returning to the apartment only one bedroom had been cleaned. The living area and second bedroom were not touched. In the bedroom that was cleaned all but two used towels were taken and no replacement clean towels had been left. When we discussed this with the manager she said that the cleaners told her that we only wanted one room cleaned. This of course was not the case, why would we request that? No one could come and service our room as they had all left at 4pm. Very little apology given and no compensation offered. Despite such a promising welcome and lovely place, huge issues here and I wouldn’t recommend it or come again. Easier to stay nearby somewhere a little cheaper but more professional/experienced in hospitality.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Every single thing. It was spacious, clean, right on the beach, great value for money. We arrived late and the owner was really accommodating and showed us in himself, I also had a problem with my card payment and that was handled really well. It was right on a gorgeous stretch of beach. If I’m ever back again I’ll come here! Ps. Go for the suite. It’s divine!
Cons: Not a thing. Thanks for a great stay!
7.0 Good
Pros: Facility was nice, very clean, staff was very attentive and service was great.
Cons: Not really water front. We had a water tank on the size of the beach view and it would go off throughout the day and night. We could hear the upstairs neighbors walking around and the next door. Bed was not comfortable for us. We got back pains...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The accommodations were spacious, modern and very clean. The staff was always very helpful and very attentive to all of our needs. Having a full kitchen in our unit allowed us to have coffee and breakfast without leaving the hotel. I would highly recommend this resort and we hope to stay here again
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The suite that I stayed in was amazing. Things were so cleaned and so modern. The only thing for me was they the restaurant was closed. Also the property doesn’t have a pool and we went during a time were the beach was not clean. Overall this resort was exceptional and the room exceeded my expectation
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Overall, the Brisa Oceano was very good value for money, with a nice-sized room in a great location. We stayed over Xmas and I was surprised by the relatively low price in the high reason, in the low US$400 range for a good-sized 2 bedroom apartment on the beach with ocean view (I think that rate was an average of $500 or so for a few days, and then dropped down to $300 or so for the last few days in January). The apartment is comfortable and clean, and relatively well appointed. This isn't a "luxury" place but is definitely nice and comfortable for a family. Placencia Village is also a great place to stay. We could easily walk to numerous restaurants, all within just a few minutes, and could easily walk to nearby grocery stores, etc. We like to have numerous restaurant options and the flexibility to occasionally prepare something in our room, and so definitely preferred to be right in the Placencia village and not at one of the higher end resorts that are a solid 20 minute drive away (and longer in a golf cart). Placencia is also a great place from which to explore ocean and jungle/historical activities such as visting a Mayan site. We had already spent a few days near San Ignacio, so stuck to the beach and did one trip out to Ranguana Caye (which is a small caye affiliated with the owners of Brisa Oceano) which was excellent. We had a great time canoeing and paddle boarding around, it was nice to have a bar on the island, and we were able to snorkel and see some pretty cool fish right off the beach, plus do the guided snorkel. Keep in mind that Brisa Oceano is a small property overall. There are staff onsite in the office from 7am-7pm, which is more than sufficient for any normal needs. We found that the process of booking or confirming tours or transfers was a bit inefficient at times, partly b/c of different people working on different days, but if you drop by in person to confirm things, you will find it's quite straightforward.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I did not know there was a breakfast available. We really enjoyed the location close to the shops, restaurants, The beach access . The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Cons: We really enjoyed our staff at Brisa and not to be picky... we didn't have a frying pan to cook our eggs but we made do and boiled our eggs. I also, think I would prefer a second floor condo. The boardwalk is quite busy with people walking by the porch.

Cons: Bright outdoor lights at night, kept the room too bright
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, quite court area,
Cons: If you were in a room facing the restaurant it was very load for our friends so had to switch rooms. Bikes were in poor shape and not very good to use. No kayak available which would have been nice yet it was stated on the booking. Would have been nice to have a couple of beach chairs to take to the beach by us.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Quaint cottage on well maintained, shaded and secluded grounds. Location is near all the best restaurants and a short walk to the best beaches. Odalis took care of all our needs and was always a pleasure to deal with. Only complaint is the shower. Not much pressure and hot/cold variations with the water temp made for quick showers. Otherwise, we couldn’t be happier. Definitely worth the cost and we highly recommend.

Pros: Loved the staff, location and cleanliness. I would definitely come back and recommend. The team/staff was so nice and helpful in many way. We had a great time. Location was prime to everything.
Cons: The hotel did not tell us about the construction they had going on every day. Some days starting at 7 am on a weekend. Also the water stopped working one night but the staff was quick at fixing. I feel a hotel should let customers know when big construction is happening at their facility.
