This was the third time we have eaten at El Conquistador...the first time since it has moved locations. We love the music....and the table side preparation.. Our server was extremely helpful in recommendations for me, and went above and beyond in making sure it was prepared exactly as I asked. My husband had their steak Diane...which is prepared table side... More

First off I have to disagree with others who have criticised this restaurant for discriminating against all inclusive guests of the Royal resorts. Nothing could be further from the truth in our case so much so that having arrived far too early they allowed us complimentary drinks in the bar that were not included on our package. The atmosphere is... More

From the moment we were greeted at the door, until the last Tequila was served, the service, food and ambience was exceptional. During our 5 night stay with the Royal Sands Resort we dined 2 nights at El Conquistador restaurant and loved it. The wait staff was superb and the Shrimp I ordered was as fine as it could possibly... More

The food was good, not fantastic. They offer some very cool dishes that were prepared table-side to stunning effect with blue flames and all! We also liked the live guitar music during dinner. The service was excellent, but the cuisine was not French, as we'd been told at the Royal Sands hotel.

Everything posted by previous reviewers turned out to be true. It truly was one of our best dining experiences. The service, romantic ambiance, and food were superb. Based on recommendations by previous reviewers, we ordered the chateaubriand and the sexy coffee, which exceeded our expectations. If staying in the hotel zone of Cancun, this restaurant is not to be missed.

We decided to have dinner here based on Trip Advisor reviews and because we were staying at Royal Sands with the Refine All Inclusive package. We had a difficult time arriving (as I noted in my review of Royal Sands), but we finally arrived 75 minutes after beginning our transportation process. We ordered around 8:20 and still had not been... More

Superb service for an evening of fine dining at its best in Cancun. Our professional service was above most in America. It was beautiful presentation and wonderful food.

This hotel was so worth spending the time to find! We went for lunch on the patio and the views were to die for! Lunch was fabulous and reasonable.
