Stayed here for 5 days with a toddler to relax. The pool is very kid friendly. Room service and restaurant, although a bit expensive compared to local rates but true to prices in big U.S. cities. Try Adrian Tropical down the street. its a bit of a walk, but you can take a horse carriage ride to make it more enjoyable. Pizzarelli is down the other direction for kids. Enjoyed the dinner choices a lot at the hotel. The maitre'd was excellent and chef super friendly too. Great churrasco. Rooms are clean and wifi is good. Tried the beauty salon (Anna) and service was good. I was hesitant since I saw bad reviews but she is good. Just remember to ask fees for each item added to the service (hair drops, conditioners etc) and you won't be surprised. If you're a bit frugal like some ladies were in there, just bring your own hair products. Prices are in USD. If you go to a local salon the cost is probably a tenth of what it is here but you have to go to el Conde to find a local hairdresser.
The crowd when I went was mostly housewives of businessmen. Hardly any Europeans, mostly folks from the Midwest and Southern U.S. I didn't notice any families but everyone was super sweet and accommodating to my son.
This is my 3rd visit to this hotel in the last ten years and I would continue to go back.
