The Seashell House is exactly what you would think of it as. It is not a five star hotel nor does it claim to be but everything it has to offer on the island makes up for what it lacks. The host is always able to help and lives next door. As well as giant lizards who were the…

What a wonderfully unique place to stay! We loved that it was away from all the touristy places, but still a short golf cart ride away to anything we wanted to do. Vanessa was incredibly helpful and responsive when we needed anything. Already looking forward to a return trip!

I love what I do here in Cancun and I have won many years of awards for excellence on Tripadvisor for the quality of my rooms and attention to my guests. I traded Canada for Cancun when I was 25 because I had a desire to never have to return to " reality" after vacationing…
