The service was extremely disappointing especially when traveling for business. I got 1 drink and left

Ballyhoo offers cheap pub food at the El Conquistador Resort. Think burgers, chicken wings, wraps, fries, etc. It isn't thrilling food, but great for a quick bite to eat at a good value. The restaurant offers outdoor seating as well as a takeout option. If I return to the El Conquistador Resort again, I will definitely be heading to Ballyhoo.

Excellent service. They offer hamburgers, wrap, hot dogs, wings, drinks, etc. Prices are not high for being in a luxury resort. Food is prepared right at the bar and is quick. They offered a day special, which was a chicken wrap with soft drink for $9.99 with good flavor and quality. We also ordered the hot dog. and a few... More

My family stopped by here numerous times during our stay at the El Conquistador. Most of the time it was for drinks, but we did have lunch and dinner here too. It is convenient when waiting for the boat to the Palomino Island or the half-day rate (starts at 1:30pm) for the water park. The drinks are great. I think... More

My husband and I went here multiple times and the drinks were amazing! I had the classic pina colada and he had the margarita, always came out great! The food was sooo delicious, we had the Puerto-Rican appetizer twice and it was so nice for them to substitute some meals for you. Great service, great views!

Conveniently located just steps from your guest room or easily accessible by boat this bar/grill was fantastic! And although the entire crew was pretty awesome we remember Jonathan's name. The wings, the burgers, the chicken wraps and even the Shirley temples and virgin pina coladas for the kids were A+. For bbq fans - you have to try their special... More

Between the two dorado dishes, awesome burger, cold beers, etc... overall a great alternative to going for your lungs at the other places at the resort. If you've there and can't decide where to eat, go there for a drink, enjoy the view and you'll probably stay for the food.

We are staying at El Conquistador. I have traveled extensively (all over the world). I have never had such a poor holiday experience. I feel as if they should have just asked for my credit card when we arrived and maxed it out. We are spending close to $300-350 just in pathetically average if not terribly bad food a day.... More

Ballyhoo is the primary lunch restaurant located at the marina part of the El Conquistador hotel property. Therefore, if looking for lunch without leaving the wharf, this is your spot unless you want to venture outside the hotel property. Food is typical casual pub grub with upscale island drinks and an amazing view of the ocean front. Prices are typical... More

You have to try the rice and beans with "Churrasco" and plantains, I've been around the island with my family eating Churrasco but at this place is just awesome.
