We stayed here for 2 nights in April. The location is very good and a easy walk from the water taxis (one is right out front, the 2nd is just down the street). Room was clean, liked that it had a fridge and a safety deposit box. We found the beds very uncomfortable and it was a bit loud at...

I've now stayed at the CSI three times since February 2012 for a total of nearly six weeks, so it's about time that I shared my experiences. This is the perfect spot if what you value is a clean, convenient, safe, and friendly spot that is fairly priced. Located on the beach within walking distance of everything you'd ever want...

My first mistake was not book more time here! Second floor veranda with spectacular view of the diving docks and ocean and so much to offer only minutes away from my room! I lay in my hammock in front of my room every morning as the sun comes up with Belizean coffee in hand! Next door is Cholos sports bar...

If you want to spend your days walking a very short distance to restaurants, diving, beautiful piers...and reading on the hammock, instead of lounging inside in luxury accommodations--this is your spot. Opt for the air-conditioning for a better night's sleep (drowns out the 5 a.m. boat noise and night-music distractions quite well). The bathrooms upstairs were a tad cozy, but...

This is an amazing place to stay when you vacation in Ambergris Caye. It is very clean, no bugs, no critters, comfortable beds, attentive and caring staff that feel like family after a week's stay. It is right off the dock where the water taxi comes in and is a great place to start and finish your day from. It...

I traveled with my 16-year-old daughter, her girlfriend and a couple of my 50-year-old girlfriends. There were five of us in two lower-level rooms. The Conch Shell is nothing fancy; however, the location and staff are exceptional. We were only in our rooms to sleep, so having a 5-star hotel was not necessary. Even the teenage girls were good with...

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of February at the Conch. What a lovely little place, not fancy but neither are we so it was perfect for us. We found it spacious and it had everything we needed. We found the bathroom a little small when we first got there, but it's amazing how soon you get...

Yes, it can be a bit loud, but, it wasn't any louder than the other place I have stayed in downtown San Pedro. Cute little place and very convenient to everything. Rooms were well kept and had everything I needed. Loved the large patio on the top floor as it made it so easy to make lots of new friends....

Heed the warnings about it being noisy! It is directly in front of the ferry terminal, which is very convenient but there is quite a bit of foot traffic. And as someone mentioned Cholos, a locals bar, is right next door. It closes relatively early though so that's not much of a problem. The 5:30 am garbage truck is more...
