One of my work associates has stayed here twice before and raved about it. I brought my wife and three college aged kids for 5 days and nights. The resort is lovely with a wonderful view of the ocean. There is a water park available with large slides along with multiple pools, a hot tub area, a marina, numerous on... More

Stayed for one night on a business trip this past Spring and had a great time. Stayed at one of the renovated rooms overlooking the golf course. Had the opportunity to take the ferry to go to Palomino for the beach area. That is one of the drawbacks of the Conquistador Hotel because you have to make sure you bring... More

Great place to chill have a drink. Barbara is great, ask for her and just enjoy your evening! Well done and a nice addition to the setting. Great music and entertainment for the kids, positive and fun atmosphere. Great crew at "21".

We enjoyed our visit. Nice property and plenty to do. The only warning would be resort pricing for food and beverage seemed like it could be a little lower. The private island is a nice amenity. It would be a nice touch to see some of the local food and crafts offered on site. Though a short walk along the... More

This resort makes you feel like you are in a tropical dream. It is so beautiful and spacious with so many things to do and explore. My kids enjoyed "scouting out" the different points of interest on the property and earned their commemorative band in doing so! The hotel's private island is so picturesque and comfortable. Be sure to visit... More

Looking back after reading the reviews, I wish I understand a few things better: - no beach on property - you'll have to ride the damn funicular thing twice (no steps) and it might take several trips due to volume and then ride the ferry to get to the off-property island - limited beach hours - due to ferry constraint,...

I stayed here for a mini vacation and it was amazing. My kids didn't want to leave the waterpark. The waterpark is not just for kids, you're going to have fun there too. If you just want to relax, go to Palomino. The service is great and everything is at walking distance.

I have visited the resort several times. We like it for the location and amenities. What I have noticed in the last couple of times is that the structure is in desperate need of paint touch ups everywhere, rust removal and landscape manicure. The staff is friendly overall, but needs tweaks here and there. I recommend it for families who... More

I travelled with my two children and my parents in March for Spring Break. There was an excellent kids eat free with paying adults program, that truly was terrific. The rooms were fine and clean, but by no means spectacular. This doesn't bother me because we spend most of our time outside all day. The facilities are outstanding! there are... More
