We were staying at hotel el conquistador. An amazing but little expensive hotel. The hotel has its own ferry that take you to Palomino beach. There, there is a hotel restaurant to buy drinks and snacks. The beach is just amazing!, the view is great, is has white sand, crystal waters. It's awesome. The downside are the prices of the...

We took the 9 am ferry to palomino island and had a blast. I would highly recommend catching the first boat at 9 am to have the first choice of chairs on the beach. We just laid around and swam in the ocean but there are tons of other things available to do. There's a rental booth that has snorkel... More

After staying a few nights at the Waldorf-Astoria in Fajardo, we enjoyed the Palomino Island every day. It's amazingly beautiful. The only thing that is missing is the Pirates of the Caribbean!

Accessible only by boat. Clean with a nice beach, food and drink services and very relaxing. I would go again.

There really isn't much to say about Palomino Island, it is simply beautiful, peaceful and a must for any one visiting El Conquistador. And while there pay a visit to Palomino Stables, right from the start they made us feel as though we were old friends that haven't seen each other in a while.

We stayed at the El Conquistador for three nights. The highlight was the ferry ride, and visit to Palomino Island. The beach was not crowded, the water was blue and the current was not rough. We waded out int the water, and sat under umbrellas on the beach. The island, has food available and we did enjoy having the beach... More

Wonderful small beach. White sand. Capt. Miguel took good care of us on our round trip. Beautiful shades of green, turquoise and blue sea. Clean area. The Capt. drops you off and you can tell him at what time he can return to take you back to the big island. Wonderful day.

Very relaxing private beach owned by the El Conquistador. There is a ferry that takes you over to the Island on the half hour during the weekend and on the hour during the week. Blue clear water. If you want they have jet skis, kayaks and sailboats for rent. Our favorite drink on the island was "The Reef" We spent... More

This private island oasis offered by El Conquistador is an awesome place for the entire family. There are plenty of activities for the adults and the kids. The staff will take your drink and food order and serve you right on the beach. The snorkeling was great and the water was crystal clear. I would recommend that everyone hike to... More
