The management at the Hotel will do anything they can to go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. This is no cookie cutter version of an American Establishment that is so taking over this quaint little village called San Pedro. The beds are really comfy, sheets always clean and fresh. My needs are always met, if you want some cookie cutter, place to be, might not be for you unless your cookies are cut out of the sweet dough that makes Belize and it's beach community so special. I love the Conch Shell, especially the top deck. This is 4 years running, plan on making next visit #5.

For the category of inn, this place was excellent. Simple, but comfortable, and well maintained. They have seats out front of each unit as well as a couple hammocks. Beds were comfy and the breeze off the water kept the rooms cool. I found it very relaxing.

Two things I'd improve;
1. Water pressure, while not a big deal, sometimes it barely came out. It might just be build up on the shower heads. Not a deal killer though.
2. There were no hangers or hooks to hang things. There is a dresser, but it's nice to be able to hang up some wet items to dry. Even some hangers in the room to hang on the shower rod would work. Also, being a diver, it'd be nice to have a spot to hang your dive gear to dry. Even just some hooks on the wall with a bin below to catch the water; cheap, and effective. Or hooks on the wall in the shower stall.

I liked the place, and will stay here again when I come.

Room Tip: All rooms face water so probably not much difference between rooms.

All these reviews have been right on. Except the one about the noise. We stayed here the last week of Jan. 2012 & found the Conch Shell very quite & peaceful. Joan was a wonderful host she kept in contact all through our trip right up until we checked in. She even booked our inter island flight at a dicounted rate. We had missed our flight due to delays getting into Belize City & she assured us there was no problem getting another one. Joan also suggested the Seafood Buritto at Warmaguma restaurant which was the best meal we had all week. She also let us use her Kayaks at The Blue Dolphin about four miles up the rd. for free. I highly recomend this place & would stay again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have the kitchens, downstairs rooms have a fridge only. All the rooms have Great Ocea...

We recently had a VERY nice stay at the Conch Shell Inn. Located in the very heart of San Pedro Town you have access to all the town has to offer and a room right on the beach. Joan, our hostess, was super. She went way out of her way to make our stay as near perfect as possible, offering suggestions for the best local foods, entertainment venues and tours to take. We went snorkeling on a forty-foot catamaran, the Lady Leslie, and took the day long Laminai Mayan ruins tour with Seaduced by Belize, both from her recommendation. We had the best time ever and would recommend the Conch Shell Inn to anyone going to San Pedro in Belize!

Room Tip: Make sure to request an upstairs room (if one is available) for a better, unobstructed view

You are right in the heart of San Pedro when you stay at the Conch Shell Inn. The rooms are clean and simple, with comfortable beds. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome and they are happy to offer suggestions for excursions, etc. The staff are also friendly and helpful and do a great job of servicing your room. We would love to go back some day!

Room Tip: We enjoyed being up on the veranda!

I can not rave enough about the staff at the Conch Shell. If you want to be taken care of, this is the place to go. Perfect location, a 5 minute walk to anything and everything in San Pedro. Each room is painted/decorated differently, and the care taken to project a happy, "beachy" feel is obvious, giving the entire place a feeling of being "home." If you are able to get a room here don't think twice...confirm your reservation as soon as possible! It will be the best decision you make on your trip to Belize.

if you're looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place for you. it's right on the beach with all the activity that happens on latin american beaches: think vendors, bars, music and people..........the hotel is a good value otherwise, but bring your won toiletries such as shampoo, lotion, hair dryer etc.......the beds were extremely comfortable as the mattresses are tempur-pedic.........the rooms have a ceiling fan, floor fan and a refrigerator......air conditioning is available for additional cost but not necessary as there's always a refreshing breeze blowing...............
