Hotel was amazing. Service was exceptional although we felt there was not enough staff. There are a few items in la casitas that needs to be addressed but the amazing part is we addressed them and they were fixed. Be prepared to spend a lot on food and drinks but well worth it. Food and service in restaurants were top...

We were here for my husbands work conference. They are a large group and it's hard to find conference halls that can accommodate their large group. This place is in need of a major update to say the least. It is a very large sprawled out place. It's huge. Not hard to find a bar !! The rooms are very...

Our second stay in two years for spring break. The size of the facility and number of services and hotels is amazing. The staff is generally superb, the private island and boat are excellent and the restaurants are solid but are a bit pricey. Facility is beginning to show a little age but still they are well kept as are...

The reviews for El Con are a bit all over the board, and I think I can see why. There are many aspects to this resort, and some are very good, while others are about average. I'll try to sort out what's what to help you judge whether this is right for you. Hint, the Very Good far outweighs the...

Upon first entering the grounds of this hotel, we were awestruck by its splendor and beauty. There's a private roadway lined with palm trees, spectacular flowers and a manicured golf course which you drive through before pulling up to the hotel. Parking is down the road a block or so from the entry so my husband unloaded our belongings and...

Hilton should be the brand this is under. The resort is showing it's age. Rates are pretty pricey. Our room had mold by the sliding door that didn't properly shut. When brought to the attention of the front desk, she replied, "close the door all the way" when it was the fixed door was the one that didn't close. There...

After seeing some of the negative reviews I had some doubts about our stay at the enormous El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, but it surpassed my expectations and I had a great time. What's best: it's in a great setting, is extremely clean, great staff, really fun "funicular" (like a roller coaster) that takes you up and down the hill,...

This is our second visit to El Conquistador. The first time, we stayed in the main hotel. We had an ocean view room with recently updated decor. We chose to stay in the Casitas this time. Only "complaint" is our room was dated (paint peeling off the bathroom vanities) and had a slight mold smell which they provided a solution...

The resort is HUGE!! Was there for 5 nights and did not get to see all of it. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful and filled with many shops including Starbucks for the coffee fanatics and restaurants. The restaurants were all high end with NYC prices. There were a few game rooms and areas for the children and they...

All I can say is "Alvin is fabulous." Arrived via private charter to the island at the same time as the hotel ferry, and Alvin hooked us up. Drinks were good, food was ok, but Alvin is the king of service.
