I had an amazing experience. The hotel, staff and restaurants are second to none. I highly recommend El Conquistador to any families or couples looking for a quality vacation. Beautiful location with amazing views and excellent overall experience.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017

After our cruise, we had the opportunity to stay for a few days over Christmas. This was our first time staying for more than one night in PR and also our first time at the El Conquistador. It will definitely not be our last, for sure! From the moment we stepped onto the property, everyone was so delightful! The grounds...

Our family traveled here during our children's school vacation week. It was a great resort for our family! Our children enjoyed the ferry to palomino, water park, pools, & making s'mores! The service from all the staff was amazing & they were very accommodating! The rooms were in need of some updating but it was very spacious & we enjoyed...

We've stayed at this resort for the last 3 years during spring recess. Each year the service is progressively worse. Each year we request specific rooms and each year we never get the room requested. We have to argue with the staff to get the specific accommodations we paid for. Once we paid for "upgraded oven view" accommodations and were...

Everything is overpriced, even for a resort - for example, breakfast buffet with 2 cocktails came to $80; although if u do eat here request JOSE VEGA for your server; he speaks great English and leads the pack when it comes to customer service. Beware of all-inclusive.....We upgraded to all inclusive and had all these limitations with it, so beware...

We just spent four nights at this resort and had a great time. There were plenty of things for the kids to do. From the water park to the private island, they were constantly on the move. We rode horses, kayaked, swam, etc. The property is a little dated, but our suite was recently updated We had the dining package,...

El Conquistador is lovely - a magnificent setting with beautiful pools and architecture. If you are looking for a first class, relaxing resort vacation - this is NOT it. The food in the restaurants is mediocre at best (even in the 'fine dining' options') and the place is totally overrun with kids. Even in Las Casita's, which is where we...

Service sucks and everything is way too expensive for what it's worth. Not worth the money at all. You would get 100 times more for your money in the US let alone any other country. Outdated property with horrible food. Paid $12 for chips and salsa which was just hot sauce.
