El Conquistador special rate?

Hello,

I'm planning our honeymoon to PR I like the idea of El Conquistador because of the private island & water park.

Their published rates are quite high, does anyone know whether gettng a nightly rate of $200 (or less!) is possible?

We would be travelling in Feb 2014 so have plently of time to be on the lookout.

I have also signed up to their contact list.

Many thanks!

I have often seen discounted rates there, but remember February is peak season so it may be more difficult then. Discounts are usually made via special web sites like Hotels.com or Priceline.com a few weeks or a month or so before the date of the stay when and if they have excess rooms. During our summer June-August, I have heard deals advertised in PR for ~$125 per night for local getaways. Perhaps move the wedding date?

The occupancy rate for Puerto Rico hotels has been very high this past year and El Conquistador is a popular resort on the island. As February is in peak season, it may be difficult to get a cheap rate or at least one with premium rooms. Try the following website. It has a reasonable rate which includes airfare and taxes:

They do published sometimes, but locals gets the better rate, and so, as prxplorer noted, the place is quite popular for locals.

Although I won't need airfares, it looks as if you can book for hotels only. Well keep an eye out!

Mid-December through end of April is high season. It will be difficult to find a deal for that time frame. If you can go in the Fall, rates are great. Last September, October, November, there was an offer in the website for something like $179/night for anyone.

You may also check Hotwire. We booked a five star property on their site for March and got the Las Casitas for under $200.

How did you bet to get that rate? Hotwire most likely will search other resorts, so what are the chances to get Las Casitas. For $200, you got a good deal.

@Nic C, if you are coming this far for your honeymoon, I recommend you check out Vieques and Culebra. Spend one day in Old San Juan when you first arrive.
