We really enjoyed our visit to the El Conquistador. There scenery is gorgeous! The staff is friendly and the food is pretty good. We didn't love the sushi restaurant mainly because the service was horrible, but everywhere else was great. The beach was fun and the service there was great too. Our room was very contemporary, large, clean and just... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

In all fairness, I did not pay for the room as we were on a company trip. So, my opinion might be slightly skewed by the "freeness" of it all. However, here are my observations. The place is huge! So, I think what part you stay in might play a big role in your experience. We were in one of... More

Just stayed at El Conquistador March 26-29. Overall, we had a very nice stay. The resort is very large as others have indicated, but I felt it was manageable. Check In: Very nice and fast and front desk staff were knowledgeable. Room: We stayed in building 4. Our room really needed updating although the view was spectacular, overlooking the pool... More

Excellent resort complex with plenty to do. Ferry out to private beach is a slight hassle as takes 45-60 minutes one way but well worth the effort and scenery is exceptional. Rooms very well appointed and bathrooms very spacious. Only downside is that restaurants don't really measure up to overall quality of resort

We arrived at the resort to check in at almost midnight. We were cheerfully greeted by Rubin,who upon hearing that our luggage had been misplaced by the airlines went out of his way to help us. He made sure we had the necessary toiletries delivered to our room that night since we arrived with nothing. A polite gentleman delivered bathrobes... More

We stayed at the smaller La Casita Village on the property. The staff was kind, and the wait staff at our morning breakfasts was exceptional warm. We could take advantage of all the larger El Conquistador resort offered. The pristine sand and water of Palomino island and tasteful ( not what you might fear) water park. Thanks Eddie the bellman... More

We visit Puerto Rico and stay at the El Conquistador regularly for down time. The hotel and amenities are great. Local dining at El Estation and other fine restaurants along with scuba, fishing, horseback riding is very enjoyable. Mr. Carlos Gonzales, front desk and concierge extraordinaire, is our go to person for planning.

Overall experience excellent. First time staying at a four-star hotel. Emphasis on young couples and families, as a single I felt a bit out of place - this might have just been my problem. One discourteous employee, everything else top-notch. A beautiful facility.

This is the best place to stay in all of Puerto Rico. It is in Fajardo which allows you easy access to the Biolumenescent Bay and Flamenco Beach on Culebra. Both voted top ten in the world! The view from this hotel is voted best in all of PR. I can't say enough about how gorgeous the view and grounds... More

So first of all, I visited PR or a girls trip recently and we had a really lovely time. There were definitely issues and the property is showing its age a bit but the staff were so friendly and eager to please we overlooked many of the problems. The rooms are spacious and our sea view was absolutely breathtaking but... More
