Great for Couples

Beautiful location, accommodating staff, etc. The private island is awesome! One note ... we left the kids at home and we're glad we did. Elevator, tram and ferry would not have been as much fun with kids in tow. Loved it. The golf looked amazing.

Nice Resort for Adults

Rather unique location perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean, spectacular views! The island is great and has some stuff to do, but mainly laying around on a beautiful beach (which is fine by me). A tip on the island ... if you happen to be there on the weekend, instead of following the masses going to the right off the ferry, go to the stretch of beach on the left. Locals bring their boats/sound systems and it can be a really fun party. Glad we didn't bring kids. Very romantic break! Think kids would have made it feel like planes trains and automobiles getting out to the island everyday, and not an abundance of on site entertainment for them. You've heard of a Mojito, ask Juan at the outside bar to make you his special Juanito

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The bio bay tour is an absolute must I will never forget the experience, and it's super close to the resort. Just the trip through the mangrove in complete darkness (lit only by glow sticks) would be worth the time and money. When you reach the bay and realize what is happening it is simply amazing! Splashing the glow water is crazy, and if you're lucky enough to see some fish. (we saw a few schools) they look like shooting stars. You get a little wet so wouldn't bring unprotected camera/cell phone. Bugs are not an issue if you wear a long sleeve top, but make sure it's breathable as it can get little hot while going through the mangrove. Tip : when you get to the bay try to stay a little bit away from the group. Try to paddle through spots where the others haven't been. You'll scare up more fish and maybe even see a ray! Hands down one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

First day of summer

Usually I would say this place is a amazing resort which I did learn over the 4 day stay. Overall for a private island and a good getaway I recommend it. Out of the 5 times I've been to Peurto Rico this was a adventure.

Complete Relaxation

This hotel has all you need for complete relaxation. Its limited beach on a private island is not an inconvenience, but an exclusive area. You can spend all day there and want to come back for more. 10-yr old daughter also adored the water park.

OleLelolai is a Spanish/Puerto Rican restaurant with delicious options and a nice view of the ocean in their outdoor patio. Try the chuleta kan-kan.

Good Getaway

Hotels private island was amazing! Plenty of things to due however the customer service was below average. Information was okay however taxes were charged per day 31.00 which adds up which the website says it includes these taxes.. Food could have been better. Also deposit per night was 150.00 plus taxes which I was not made aware before hand

Beautiful views

This was our second time going to el conquistador. Great things that convinced us were , the amazing views , it's proximity to el yunque , the private island with various activities and it's water park. For the price you pay there is various things for you to do and that's what we love . For a Waldorf Astoria hotel, well it fails in customer service and luxury that were used to . But it's worth going to ;)
