The Conch Shell Inn is a quant hotel located directly on the water with a beautiful beach in front. We had a wonderful stay. The rooms were clean and each had it’s own refrigerator. The location was fantastic, within walking distance to great restaurant and local shopping.

We stayed at the Conch Shell Inn for a couple of nights in February. Having never been to San Pedro before, we got the low down from a couple of friends who had been there. One of the things they mentioned was the noise, since it is right in the hub of the activity on the beach. I brought earplugs. I didn't need to use them as I didn't think the noise was that bad. There was some early morning activity as the merchants got ready for the day but, other than that, no big deal. If you want something quieter, go further away from the center of activity.

The rooms at the Conch Shell were very clean and had everything you would need for coffee and light snacks. Mini fridge was handy for keeping the Belikins cold. Beds are really comfortable. I liked the second floor as the view was better from up there and great for people watching. Close to everything and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay there again as I felt it was a great value for the location.

Side Note: (Funny thing is we went over to Caye Caulker for a night and stayed in a place that made a jail cell look plush. Not only that, there were a couple of drunks sitting outside of our window on Caye Caulker for hours and, of course, I forgot the earplugs.)

Our last three nights in Belize we stayed here and out of the 3 places in San Pedro and 2 in other locations, hands down the best value for our money. The place is practically brand new with architectural design included.

We had a middle upper room which does have a shared balcony but never found it to be a problem. I mean, most people are here to dive or just plain cool chill people. The only knock I would give and mentioned it to the owners (who are around incase you need them) is that the towels need to be larger. After saying it I had to laugh at that was my only complaint.

There is some street traffic but if you close the window in the bathroom that disappears. The beach side does get a little noisy but you are going to be finding that pretty much anywhere in the middle of town.

Did I mention posturepedic beds?... By far the best matress we stayed on all trip. NICE!

I should have read the reviews and looked at the photos more carefully. The room was fine and the kitchenette usefully equipped for making breakfast and hot and cold drinks. The hotel is right on the beach, in the middle of everything, hence the noise. The shared balcony upstairs can also be noisy, depending on your neighbours, and only 2 rooms have hammocks and tables. But the main disappointment for us was that the view is of the jetties and boats, not uninterrupted beach and sea; and you cannot swim directly outside the hotel.
Of course, 3 days of rain didn't endear San Pedro to us!

This place is super-convenient to Ecologic Divers -- literally a 30 sec. "commute"! -- and to downtown San Pedro. It's not fancy but the rooms are clean and bright and well-kept and and an excellent value. (My wife and I don't really look for alot of amenities in a hotel room when we're on a beach vacation.) What we liked best was being right on the beach near our dive shop and excellent dining. A typical day: wake up with coffee from right next door, dive until ~ 12:00, stroll down the beach to lunch, bike around the caye or lounge in one of the hotel's hammocks, stroll down the beach to dinner, walk around San Pedro. Monica the manager was attentive and friendly. We'll definitely go back to the Conch Shell and recommend it to anyone looking for a no-frills but comfortable, friendly place.

  • Liked — Location -- convenience to an excellent dive shop and great restaurants (we only ate fish all week!).
  • Disliked — Internet access was spotty but they were right in the middle of upgrading their router.
