I just returned from a 4 day stay at the El Conquistador with my 14 and 11 year old kids. Overall, we had a great time and we will be back for next years spring break. The kids had a great time exploring the private island - Palomino - especially during low tide. The ferry to this private island was... More

We stayed at the El Con in February of 2007 in a La Marina room before the renovation and the water park and during the convention center construction. We received a great offer to come back and visit after the renovations were completed so we found ourselves back in La Marina February 9-16th of 2008. The rooms are bright and... More

The grounds and property at the El Conquistador were very impressive. I heard it was formerly some type of university. The absence of a beach concerned me, but the shuttle to the private island worked well, and we really enjoyed our time out there. In many ways I felt like the prices were a rip off. The hotel campus is... More

I stayed here last may with my boyfriend, it was incredible. At first we had a garden view of the golf courses (which is actually very beautiful) then they upgraded us FOR FREE to the renovated room with an ocean view and it was spectacular. We actually ordered dinner in one night and ate on our balcany because you cannot... More

The staff at the El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa were extremely sincere and friendly. The trip started by getting to the hotel around 10pm so everything was winding down for the night. We hung at the bar and casino "21" on the main lobby were the staff was great. The next night we partied upstairs at Drakes were... More

The best thing that I can say about my trip to the El Con was that I didn't have to pay for it myself. My experience with the resort started poorly and failed to improve over the 4 days that I was there. Things started with a luggage mixup in which we had inadvertently grabbed the wrong suitcase from baggage... More

My husband and I are easygoing travelers and found this resort based on the recommendation of a few friends who absolutely raved about it. The resort has some good qualities, but it one of the worst value vacations we have ever experienced. It has the ambiance, food quality, and feel of a mid-range "Sandals" type resort, but is priced like... More

Just back from a great stay 3/21 - 3/25 at the El Con. I used this site extensively when deciding on where to stay so I want to share my experience. I was with my husband and two boys ages 14 & 11. We stayed in a Las Brisas ocean view room. The room was nice, spacious, and clean. The... More

I enjoyed my stay and never left the hotel even though we had a car. The good. Found my room well decorated, clean. Loved taking the ferry to the island.

My family traveled to the El Conquistador during Easter week. It was our fourth visit to the resort. We have a nine year old and a seventeen year old. We booked a partial ocean view and got a great ocean view room in Las Brisas. First of all, I would recommend renting a car. Self park your car for around... More
