Just a short ferry ride away from the El Conquistador Hotel (10 mins max), Palomino Island is the perfect island get-away. Crystal clear water, sparkling beaches, a rum bar and a restaurant, and tons of activities for the older souls and younger kids to enjoy! Your visit starts with a 10 minute, very smooth, ferry ride from the marina at... More

This is definitely the crown jewel of the El Conquistador resort. You have to take the elevator to the trams (“express” makes no stop and “local” makes one very short stop) to the marina where you will catch a catamaran to Palomino Island. You’ll get plenty of sun on the island so unless you just really have a hankering to... More

This is a great location for fun with family and friends. Between the watersports activities, the beautiful sand beaches and azure waters of the Caribbean, you cannot go wrong. The food offerings vary but it's hard to mess up a burger or sandwich. The frozen drinks by the water are well worth it!

Fun and relaxing with great service, funny bar tenders with some crazy stories & jokes. Loved the horse back rides, seadoo rentals, and the clothing optional beach (hidden cove). The hike through the island is fun (pack water, it gets hot), and snorkeling in the shallow waters can impress you with a huge variety of sea life. This is definitely... More

We spent 2 days at the island. We were able to get lounge chairs under an umbrella on both days with no problems. Food was very good for lunch and not over priced. There is horse back riding, putt putt golf, pool tables, jet skis & small water crafts to rent, 2 bars, towels are provided when you get off... More

The main beach area has calm and warm water. They had you a towel when you get off the ferry. If you go to the beach on the left (where boats may dock), you have a long beach to walk along (but no chairs over here).The snorkeling was not as good as I had hoped. You had to go out... More

We stayed at the El Conquistador because we read great reviews for this place. It definitely was worth it in my opinion! We were originally going to stay in San Juan and hang out at the beaches there, after spending a day there and seeing how chaotic the beaches were, I was very grateful for Palomino Island. To get there... More

Really enjoyed visiting this place. The water was beautiful and so clear! There was plenty of space to relax so there is not people on top of people.
