A Pretty Resort in Placencia, Belize

A Pretty Resort in Placencia, Belize

You can order food to anywhere on Chabil Mar’s grounds, including this pier!

“Witty?” you may be muttering as you eye the title. “Since when is a Belize resort described as witty, huh?”

Listen: Chabil Mar is gorgeous (just look at these photos and try not to faint) and its staff is fantastic, but what made me roll on the floor laughing was that it has the funniest welcome packet of any hotel I have encountered in my extensive world travels.

Here are some excerpts from Chabil Mar’s info packet. My comments from our fabulous Belize Honeymoon stay at the resort are inserted throughout.

Gift Shop: Our gift shop, located near the the front desk, has a variety of local art and handiwork as well as staples such as bug spray, t-shirts and chocolate. Yes, we called chocolate a staple.

Amen! I did not realize that Belize has some of the best chocolate in the world. Lucky for us, Chabil Mar placed two full-sized bars on our pillows. They immediately went into my belly.

Who knew a resort this pretty could be so witty in its information packet? Good job, Chabil Mar, Belize!

Shoe Shine: If you are wearing shoes that need to be shined, may we suggest that you are wearing improper footwear for Plancencia. Take them off and put your toes in the sand.

We happily complied with this order. In fact, on the morning we were leaving, when I grudgingly went to put on my closed-toe shoes (which I’d strewn on our outside patio to dry from hiking)– BOINK– there was a frog hiding in one! Clearly he was on Chabil Mar’s payroll to enforce the footwear rules. (Ever tried to put on a shoe with a frog in it? It’s a very strange, squishy feeling.)
