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

The sheer size of the property is impressive, but THE VIEWS is what is all about. Dramatic views of the east coast of PR overlooking many islands on the Caribbean Sea. On a clear day you can see STT. Complimentary ferry service to private island makes for a perfect day at the beach. Majestic golf course.

I stayed at this property in July 2013 with my wife and we really had a great time by ourselves, so this year, we decided to bring our family since we realized it was such a family friendly hotel. First off, the grounds are vast and very well kept. When you first drive to this resort, you might be thinking,... More

We spent two nights at El Conquistador and were amazed at the atmosphere and things to do. Our favorite was access/ferry to Palomino island and the spectacular views from our room balcony. We would definitely stay here again. July 2014

The staff over all are very friendly and my two favorites were Omar and Natalia by the main pool. They made sure we had a great time and incorporated fun activities for all ages. The hotel is beautiful and the amenities are unlimited. Palomino island is beautiful and secluded, food is great in the resort but even better outside of... More
