Came back from 6 nights in Las Brisas wing of El Conquistador with my family. Signed up for the waterpark package for the kids. The property is gorgeous but when you take a closer look at the facilities, it is clear that they need to put millions of dollars into the resort for a major facelift...particularly in the rooms. Las Brisas was supposed to be the "nicest room"....décor is from the 70's....yes, bathroom is large but shower had old tile with dried rust dripping down (they attempted to re-grout). There were tiny ants on the tv console (they sprayed). And, there was a brown hole in my mattress (they brought a new one). Palomino island is fantastic for kids-so much to do. Kids played ping pong, basketball, did SCOUT adventure hunt, etc. Beach was fantastic. Pools and waterpark were nice too. We ate dinner only 2 nights on property..the other four we ate out in Fajardo. NYE dinner at Chops was delicious but $$$$.
I felt that the room rate was way too high considering the quality of the actual room. Resort gave me some room credit for all the nasty things in my room, as they should've. The hotel was fully booked so they couldn't move us to any other room. Game room was great for kids after dinner and the icecream shop was nice to have on site. Again, beautiful grounds, we had great weather....Property needs serious TLC. They should replace the ripping and stained carpet in the hallways to start....
