They have the private Palomino Island to hang out at. We got on the first boat and reserved a hut right by the beach. My fiance and a friend decided to swim to the nearby island (haha!) and it looks closer than it really is. He was tired by the end of his swim there. We ate at Chops Steakhouse... More

We always make sure that we have dinner at the El Conquistador on our last night of vacation before we leave Canucun. Now located in a different location since the sale of the Royal Resorts Mayan sale, they have managed to have the quality of service. We were not disappointed with selection of entrees and the wonderful music by Jorge... More

This restaurant has great food, service, intimate setting, and there is a Spanish guitar player for great ambiance. Make reservations as this is quite popular.

El Conquistador has always been the Royal Resort's premier restaurant. Since moving over to the Royal Islander several months ago, it has reinvented itself into a sleek and elegant venue with subdued lighting. The classical guitarist playing softly in the background adds much to the ambiance. Tom and I are from Atlanta and have been fortunate enough to eat in... More

My wife and I splurged on our last night of vacation. We stayed at the Royal Islander and I was surfing thru restaurants on trip advisor and found we had a Top 10 restaurant right on the property. All the reviews I read were on the money. The entire meal was fantastic and the service was even better. Save room... More

On the recommendation of a friend who had had this particular item in the past, I had the red snapper. I had never had snapper before this. It was moist and delicious. The presentation was extremely appetizing as well.

My sister, her best friend and I recently had dinner at this restaurant. The food was undoubtably the best we have ever had anywhere in the world. We have eaten at many other restaurants including some of the best in London, Paris, Italy, Spain and Portugal and were pleasantly surprised at our experience with this restaurant. From the appetizers to... More

If you like the old El Conquistador when it was located in the Royal Mayan, you will love the new El Conquistador relocated to the Royal Islander. New location, new decor, new menu, new staff - all add up to a great dining experience. It's hard to imagine how this combination could add up to anything other than a memorable... More

This is the best place to eat in Cancun. The new location at Royal Islander is even better than before. Wonderful food & the service is great. Oscar the maitre de is so friendly & makes you feel so welcome there. Will always return there on our visits to Cancun.
