The resort is a little far away from the Airport but it was worth the drive. The resort has a shuttle to and from the airport so get it and relax. The first thing you see once you enter in the resort is the rolling hills of the golf course. By the way great place to play golf! The resort... More

We got an incredibly good deal on Priceline and, since it was off season, also got an upgrade at no charge. The staff all around were extremely nice with 2 standouts ... Patricia at the front desk and Elizabeth at the spa. Elizabeth is an amazing talent and I had the best massage I have ever had, anywhere at home... More

I stayed in a full ocean view room with two friends and we were amazed by the experience. Our balcony on the 5th floor, which is already a few hundred feet above the water, had a spectacular view of the pools, Palomino Island, and the sea. Having drinks on the balcony as the sun set was the highlight of our... More

This resort is the number one resort on my life list. Any other hotel or resort I go to, I now compare to El Conquistador because it was just amazing. The service was that of a triple-priced resort, the property was absolutely beautiful, and the room was very cool. The pools were my favorite part; they were very nice. The... More

My husband & I wanted a short get-away to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This resort was recommended to me by the owner of my company so I figured I'd better take his advice. Glad I did. The location was far from the maddening crowds of San Juan. Beautiful setting, friendly staff and the nice ammenities. A shout out to Maricely... More

This place was amazing, I can't see how someone could give this place a bad review. First off we found this place though Costco travel, so we got ourselves a pretty good deal. After a night of flying across the U.S. and into Puerto Rico, we were greeted buy our shuttle service who picked us up in a beautiful Cadillac... More

Stayed at El Conquistador Resort Hotel at the end of Sept. 2012 for a getaway with a group of hard-working New Yorkers much in need of R&R. We definitely found that at El Con. The setting is gorgeous, a luscious location positioned between the Atlantic Ocean and southeast of El Yunque, the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. national... More

This was more like a nice Hilton than a Waldorf, but was priced accordingly. We stayed in the marina with our toddler, and it was fantastic. The room itself had a great balcony overlooking the water, where we could hang out after our daughter went to bed. She loved riding the funicular, the water park was perfect for all ages,... More

My husband I, and our two children 15 & 16 went the last week in Sept. We were very excited about our visit. The resort is beautiful. I'm sure it was "the place to go" at one time. The golf course is magnificent. The rooms are showing their age and are a bit outdated and a bit worn. Upon check... More

Great few days here. Ferry to the private island is top notch power catamaran. Water is beautiful, fun ambiance, good water sports. Mostly locals this time of year which I enjoy. Landscaping is great. Do not play golf, but course looked top rate too.
