The Palominos Island looks great. Scuba diving, snorkeling, white sandy beach. I walked all around the island. It was challenging. The Atlantic side is quite wavy and rocky. It took me 2.5 hours to walk around+swim around. Restaurant at beach, a lot of other activities for kids and adults. The island, except private beach has public beach as well, but... More

Beautiful little island great for snorkeling can get crowded on the weekends My daughters love to go there if you are staying at the conquistador they have a private boat but if you aren't there are plenty of boats to take you from the marina

The best Hilton property we have ever stayed at. The ferry goes to the island from the El Conquistador every 1/2 hour. The beach, snorkeling and sun bathing is spectacular!!! I believe I heard that this island is exclusive to hotel guests.

Palomino Island is a private Island and it's been used as the private beach for El Conquistador a Waldorf Astoria Resort. Excellent beach with water activities, beach volleyball, kayaks, jet skis, etc. One beach restaurant and bar and an additional bar just in front of the water. You get access to the Island using the Hotel ferry.

We went over early and found seats with shade. A beautiful beach. There is lots to do including: pool, table tennis, bocce, basketball. Did I mention the lovely beach. We ate at Iguanas and there had live wild iguanas that come over for feeding. My daughter was able to pick up lettuce and hand feed them. It was a nice... More
