While traveling on business to Puerto Rico this last August, we extended our stay with a package at El Conquistador. And, we're glad we did. Typically, we avoid large resorts, because they feel to confining (without a car). While we experienced some of that, there was plenty to keep us busy. Our spacious room had a spectacular view of the... More

I was getting very nervous prior to my Fiance and I's vacation after reading several disappointing reviews so I went in with lower expectations. Once there, I realized that maybe the people leaving the comments were being too picky. I enjoyed the stay here and we have already decided that down the line, another trip here should be arranged!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last year and enjoyed it very much so we returned again this year and brought some family along that live in PR. Everyone was in awe of the hotel. Beautiful grounds, very tropical atmosphere and absolutely breathtaking views. This is not a new property so don't expect it to be in pristine... More

Celebrated our 20-th wedding anniversary at El Conquistador, which came highly recommended by friends. What a gorgeous resort - complete with new rooms (ours overlooked the golf course), plentiful high-end restaurants, a casino and a private island for swimming and snorkeling. You can't go wrong with anything that's available to you at this resort. We booked directly through their website... More

The hotel property is amazing, private island beach only 7 mins away by the hotel ferry, private marina, and friendly services ( now friendly does not mean effective) Pros, the room we had was clean and organized, clean sheets and covers, never had a problem with bedbugs or mold as described in other reviews. The building could recieved a little... More

We stayed four nights at the El Conquistador. Knowing it's a Waldorf Astoria resort, I had very high expectations despite the rather negative reviews here. First the pros: we were upgraded to an ocean view room which was huge and had a balcony with a spectacular view. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom really spacious. There's a boat...

I just returned from four nights at the El Conquistador Resort. First the pros: Great views from the pool Terrific golf course that is affordable if you can get the local resident rate ($57). Nice island beaches accessible by a 20m ferry ride from the hotel marina. The cons: The food in most of the restaurants is pretty bad. The... More

My wife and I stayed at the El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, PR which is approximately 45 minutes from San Juan. The resort is amazing! We stayed in a Las Brisas Ocean View room which featured an outstanding view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and professional. The resort has several restaurants and every restaurant that we ate... More

I was here 15 years ago and the property was stunning!....now some areas need a new coat of paint but everything was nice and clean. My room at Las Brisas with an ocean view was amazing. The food at the hotel was hit and miss - some very good and some not so good at every meal. But the people... More
