Lose yourself in the vibrant beauty and captivating allure of Puerto Rico. Perched high above the ocean on a 300 foot cliff, Waldorf Astoria Spa is a peaceful retreat on the Island of Enchantment. Our luxurious Puerto Rico resort is divided into five villages, providing a soothing getaway from the stress of the world.

Built into the side of a cliff and wrapped around its own swimming pool, let sea breezes caress you in Las Olas Village. Or just relax on your private balcony in La Marina Village, which overlooks the sea and is home to the new water park and private marina. Experience this vibrant Puerto Rico resort for yourself, complete with beautifully appointed accommodations, attentive service and a magnificent setting.Located on the northeastern tip of Puerto Rico near El Yunque Rain ForestFour miles form the stores and attractions of downtown Fajardo and Las Croabas.

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 ;)

Beautiful Expensive and slow

This hotel was nothing out of the ordinary EXCEPT for the views and beach. Driving through Puerto Rico it was disappointing to say the least. It looked run down and like a place you don't want to be after dark alone. Bars on every window and door. However the hotel compared to that was amazingly beautiful and clean. The views and beach make this resort other than that it's pretty much your ordinary hotel. Negatives would be: We arrived at 2:30pm and our room still wasn't ready until 5pm. After a 4 hr flight then an hr and a half car ride with a 2yr old and 8 yr old we had to wait around another 2hrs to even get a room. We finally get a room and go for dinner only to find out your paying 5star prices for 2star service. The staff was very friendly but extremely slow. I'm not sure if this is bc we are used to fast paced New Jersey or if they were just that slow. Over all our stay was peaceful and fun. We would love to have stayed an extra day had our bank account not been drained. Helpful tip if you can rent a car do so and stop in town to shop for some food and drinks so you don't go broke on food alone especially if you have young children who need snacks. Every night we paid $5 for a 12ounce milk for my 2yr old.

Customer Service Lacking for a 4 star rating

Location: Amazing, Beautiful Staff: Poor customer service poolside and poolside restaurant, not well trained staff Facility: Needs fine tuning; run down areas; escalator not working Shuttle Transportation from and to airport awesome!
