It may be the most photographed house on Isla, but I have also heard the infrastructure is aging. When there are problems with things like plumbing, it's going to affect anyone who stay there.

Besides the "Shell' House there is also a Hotel El Caracol (on Matamoros I think) in Centro . I've never been in either property so I cannot comment. From the outside the Hotel looks pretty tired.
