This hotel is pricey but worth it. It had spectacular views of the Ocean, delightful grounds with tropical trees, shrubs, plants and lots of orchids strategically placed everywhere. Room was large, very nice. Many swimming pools, good coffee in the room. A number of restaurants offering many different cuisines and prices. Only complaint was my choice to not do valet... More

Priced like Disneyland, as all the drinks and food are pricey and not really worth it. The environment was great, but so expensive. Golf was also pricey, but disappointed with some of the greens (e.g., sand traps not maintained)

We really enjoy Puerto Rico, after 2 trips there and more to come. El Conquistador Resort (Waldorf-Astoria) on the east coast, north of Fajardo, is a great destination in PR (as are many locations in PR). We really enjoyed our stay there. Overall review is thumbs up. Cost, including the added, fairly modest resort fee, was reasonable (low season), considering... More

We arrived at the resort early for a brief stay before embarking on our Cruise. We arrived at the hotel and were blown away with the beauty of the location , the views and the entire facility itself. The staff immediately made us feel at home and attended to. We immediately knew we would return to the hotel for an... More

Just returned from our 5 day stay at El Conquistador Resort. We read previous reviews and had some concerns but we were very satisfied. We booked a garden room which turned out had a view of the water in the distance & the mountains. The hotel is old but we found the room to be fine. It was large, with... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Palomino Island was so beautiful. Great chess game. Loved the ferry ride. Splash bar was so much fun. Angel, Ivan and Ismael brightened our rainy day! They put our favorite football games on. Oreo milkshakes soooo good.

This is a gorgeous facility. The private island and water park made it particularly fun and special. I highly recommended it. Our meal at the Chops Steakhouse was excellent. We usually try to eat off property but we were tired and not in the mood to explore. So glad we gave this restaurant a shot.

This Hotel is one of the best Puerto Rico can offered. Amazing views and beautiful landscape makes this place a first option to book your reservation. My wife and daughter love the place and we are planning our return to El Conquistador. Food at Palomino Island too expensive thats sad and needs a touch of local musicians to make tourists... More

Hotel was huge with shops, restaurants ( indoor and outdoor), multiple pools, lounges, water park, several game rooms, business center, spa, golf course and a private island beach reached by catamaran ferry from the hotel's marina. Very tropical decor with beautiful landscaping; even with temps in the 80's, the ocean breezes kept us comfortable. Our ocean view room with two... More

I spent four nights here while attending a conference. The resort is enormous.When I first arrived I was overwhelmed and needed help to find my room. For serious swimmers this is a perfect place with wonderful pools including a lap pool. However, on two of the three occasions I was swimming and then relaxing, horrible piped loud music was played... More
