The entire staff at Chabil Mar was extraordinary. Everyone was willing to go out of their way to accommodate the guests. The grounds are impeccable and the food is top notch. There is not a formal dining area- rather you order food and they deliver it anywhere on the property for you to enjoy, this was amazing!
