I was worried about spending a week locked in this resort after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I was attending a conference and there is no real alternative in Fajardo. However, the view from my room in las brisas (of the light house and the lagoon) began to assuage my claustrophobia. The room was not without a litany of faults:... More

I had never been to Puerto Rico and I had never been to a destination wedding so wasn't sure what to expect. I will say that I loved it! Minus the beaches that I visited - which were full of coral so shoes were a must - everything was really nice. The El Conquistador hotel was wonderfully beautiful. The lobby... More

This is a very expensive place isolated from any shops, restaurants that are more affordable. The on-site restaurants are pricey and there are extra charges for everything including $3 each day for room cleaning. My room had ants and some jewelry was stolen from my room - be sure to use the in-room safe even if you don't usually. Response... More

We used a rental car to get to the hotel from San Juan airport. Traveling through PR is an adventure, driving is treacherous, its not like home. The hotel is beautiful. The staff is wonderful. There are so many good places to eat in the hotel, very diverse cuisines. I reccomend the breakfast buffet at Las Brisas. Please take advantage... More

This was an amazing hotel. We took a day and a half off to go to Vieques, and we totally wish we hadn't. This was an amazing place. We took our son, who was around 14 months old. He loved the parrots in the lobby, as well as the amazing swimming pools. The hotel had their own private island, and... More

We wanted a resort that was away from the busy-ness of San Juan and this setting was perfect! The resort was beautiful and we loved the private island. We got to see many iguanas and bunnies in their natural setting. The resort is nicely located so that you are a short drive away from the National Forest and many gorgeous... More

My husband and I celebrated his 40th birthday here. Just driving up to the resport was breathtaking. The mountains, the lush landscaping, the beautiful flowers and the water. WOW! The lobby was absolutely gorgeous and every restaurant we ate in had the best service and the finest foods. My husband recently went to Hawaii and he said that Puerto Rico... More

My family of 4 (2 teens 16 & 13) stayed here around Labor Day for 8 nights. We had an Ocean View Room with a balcony that was spacious & modern. The bathroom was large with a sunken tub/shower, large sink, and dressing area with a chest of drawers, iron & ironing board. The toiletries were lovely. In addition, there... More

Just back from Puerto Rico and we stayed there for 5 days. Nice trip though. The hotel view was good but the food was expensive. We went outside for food. The secret way is pass throung the marina, go outside the entrance fence and the security, there is the local area for foods and sightseeing. Only 8 minutes walk. You... More
