Very nice beach with lots of chairs. The water was warm and pretty calm. Great paths to take to the top of the hill and get great views from the various lookouts. The restaurant/bar had reasonable prices compared to the resort. Two boats going back and forth all day.

A short ferry ride from The El Conquistodor Hotel, this private island is the perfect getaway for couples or families for the day. Food, spirits, water sports and tranquility await on this well kept island. Recommend.

This is one of our favorite places to stay in the world! It has horseback riding, and wave runners, sailboats, kayak rentals. It also has a restaurant, bar and gift shops. There are corn hole, miniature golf, and volleyball. You can also go hiking up the mountain. Would highly recommend this place👍👍❤️

This is the best part about staying at The El Conquistador. I wanted to live here on Palomino Islanf. The bar is great, drink deliscious and the chicken salad in the pineapple boat is a yummy lunch.

very enjoyable day at the beach... they will bring your food and drink out to your beach chair... we got in the water and got right back out because there are a lot of rocks and it's not too clear. Make sure you have water socks.

This private island is only accessible to guests of El Conquistador/ Waldorf Astoria of Fajardo. Lots of beach activities on island (for rent),and food and drink is available for purchase (not cheap, but to be expected on a private island). Well worth the trip if if you are staying at this hotel. Not to be missed- private and pretty.
