Chabil Mar named among best in Central America by Tripadvisor awards

Celebrate Valentine's in Belize

Can a small, lush resort located on Belize’s Placencia peninsula brag too much about awards that continue to be conferred upon this property? Not according to a growing list of entities that include GQ magazine, Fodor’s and Gordon’s Guides, Green Globe and My Vacation Pages, all of which have attested to this remarkable resort’s excellence.

As it has in the past, TripAdvisor has once again shone a spotlight on Chabil Mar by giving the resort not one but two top-25 awards for best Central America Hotel. Both staff and management are thrilled to add these two 2020 honors to the resort’s growing recognition list.

Marketing Manager Larry France suspected that Chabil Mar was in the running for a TripAdvisor award, “But I was over the moon when I learned that we were included in two top-25 categories for 2020: Small Hotels and Best Service. The second is particularly meaningful because our staff takes so much pride in their efforts to make every guest feels welcome and valued,” said France.

“This year has been a particularly daunting one for our people and our property,” adds France. “But we responded to the Corona pandemic with such immediacy and speed by following World Health Organization guidelines for guest safety and welfare, that we were well ahead of the curve. When our management announced that we would open for travelers starting November 1st, 2020, there were plenty of employee high-fives going around because we knew that we had taken every precaution to welcome guests back to our beautiful Eden.”

Placencia has become the trendiest new destination for tourists, and Chabil Mar has responded to the growth in traffic that is bringing people from around the world to this boutique property. Gardens and private villas promise a unique amount of privacy to every guest seeking relaxation and carefree tranquility. From mystic rain forests to pristine beachfront along the Caribbean Sea, the resort has established a reputation for excellence that extends well beyond service and beauty.

“If awards were given for ambience, I’m pretty sure we would win every honor on the planet,” said France. “Our resort specializes in the extra touches that no other property offers. It’s why our mission, to deliver “Beauty by Belize; Luxury by Design” has been actualized and recognized by the authority we most respect: Chabil Mar guests who return year after year. Their loyalty touches us and keeps us working even harder.”

Chabil Mar Villas is a 12-year-old, contemporary, full-service luxury boutique beach resort located along the Placencia peninsula coastline. As the closest full-service resort to Placencia Village, this all-villa resort is known for service excellence, superior accommodations filled with Belizean art and décor, an impressive tour menu affiliated with knowledgeable independent guides, and Café Mar, the award-winning onsite restaurant.
