Great getaway…yet internet was lacking

We arrived on a Sunday and were most pleased with the professional check-in and staff. Everything was as expected or better. The only issue that could make this Resort perfect would be the lack of internet capabilities should be addressed.

Amazing views through out the resort

I booked this as a last-minute getaway from Chicago over a three-day weekend in January (arrived Sat afternoon left Monday afternoon). I was nervous that the short trip would not be worth the hassle of travel, but it was great. The staff made everything very simple, and everyone was lovely. The room options for a 1-bedroom had two price points for ocean view. I took the cheaper one and got a picture-perfect view framed (slightly obscured?) by palm trees with orchids hanging from them. The higher price point I think would have gotten a full ocean view directly off the cliff. I wasn't jealous of their view, but I was a little jealous of the better ocean breezes I would have gotten. Room was what one would expect of a high-end beach condo rental. Wouldn't really compare to a Waldorf in a mainland city, but excellent for a beach experience. Not at all disappointed. The staff and exterior grounds were absolutely Waldorf standards. Nearly every pool and restaurant on the resort has a full ocean view. The food is above par for resort fare. I'm a Michelin star-seeking foodie, and I was perfectly happy with the food. (Drove into San Juan one eve for our ultra-high-end dining fix.)

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The hotel's beach is a short ferry ride out to an off-shore island. Take the first ferry at 9:00am to get prime seating under one of the permanent palm umbrellas. If you arrive later, you can rent a canvas umbrella and have it placed anywhere on the beach. Plan to rent if you have small kids that you need to watch at the shoreline. The chairs under the permanent umbrellas do not have a view of the very edge of the water, and are rather too far away from shore for an emergency rescue.

Great Stay

Las Casitas was a great base to check out the East side of the island. The infinity pool was exactly what made us book and it was exactly what we were looking for. We chose the ocean view 1 bedroom casita and glad we did. Having the extra living room, large bar, open to living room, and the wide balcony with views. We meet new friends, enjoyed scenic views, took the hotel ferry to Palominos, rented a car to go to El Yunque, Loquillo Beach, Playa 7 Seas, and San Juan, took a plane from Ceiba airport to Culebra, and had a very good time. The staff was always friendly and would chat about your day or what to do next. We only ate breakfast on the rresort and it was good. For dinners we visited Estacion, Diyukas, and Passion off resort

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

At JF Montalvos,We picked up a case of beer and a bottle of booze to have in our room. We blew through that and still enjoyed plenty of the drinks from the pool bar. Saved us some money for sure.

So close but yet so far....

We booked Las Casitas as a package on this site. The package include the smallest room the resort has - The Garden Room. It is an average to small room. There were 4 of us, and I felt like we were on top of each other the entire time. I asked to upgrade to a larger room, and pay the difference, but I was told they were full. Las Casitas has 2 pools, and one restaurant. For anything else, you have to call for a shuttle to take you to the sister resort (whose name the site won't let me use), or walk. There is no path between the two resorts, so doing this in the dark is pratically impossible. You have to call a shuttle to take the ferry to Palomino Island, eat at any of the other restaurants, shop, the water park and any other entertainment. Neither Las Casitas or the sister resort has a beach. The beach is on Palomino Island. The process to get to Palomino Island - shuttle to the other resort, elevators down to the lowest level, then a ride down the funicular down to the marina. From that point, you wait for the ferry. We waited about 10 or so minutes. Then the ten minute ride to Palomino Island. The entire process from hotel room to beach took about 40 minutes. The next day we went to Seven Seas Public Beach. It took us about 10 minutes, and we were laying in the sand. Granted, there are no beach chairs or umbrellas, but the beach is heavily shaded, and practically deserted. Palomino Island was pretty crowded, and this was in the spring. Summer crowds would make wait times longer, and Palomino Island more crowded. Having said all of that, the service is impecable. All the staff are gracious and friendly. You will have your own butler who will bring you whatever you need. The restaurants at either resort are mediocre and very expensive. We ended up eating off the resort after the first day. We bought breakfast food, and ate our other meals in Fajardo. I wanted to love Las Casitas, and maybe with a bigger room, I would have. No matter the size of the room, the fact remains that you cannot walk out of your room and stroll on the beach. If quick access to a beach is important to you, then Las Casitas is not the resort for you.

Impressive but Expensive

Las Casitas is one part of a huge, multi-building luxury resort complex. It's a completely self-contained world with multiple pools, a beach on a private island (to which you have to take a ferry), many restaurants, and a plethora of hotel-sponsored activities. It's a good place to go if you don't really want to have to put in any effort to find activities. Everything is, literally, at your doorstep. The downside is that you're part of a captive audience. You're in a bubble, and there's really not a trace of local culture within the resort complex. Everything offered by the hotel, but especially the food, is dramatically overpriced for the quality. Really, the food is very mediocre, and you can easily run up an $80 bill for a couple sandwiches, drinks, and a dessert, which shouldn't cost more than $30-$40.Transportation to local sights can run >$100. Basically, if you don't mind paying for an easy, smooth experience in a beautiful setting, and don't mind eating some pretty bland, expensive meals, this is the place for you.

Recent 1-week getaway

Great hotel, very quiet as private as others have described. Rooms spacious, amenities 5-star. Setting is absolutely beautiful, set on a hillside overlooking the bay. Infiniti pool is one-of-a-kind. Staff courteous, top-notch. Ocean-room views are wonderful, but wind at night was an issue. Restaurants are OK, we chose to eat outside the resort when we could.

Beautiful setting - food doesn't match

A nice location - on a cliff overlooking the water. Beautiful grounds and nice rooms (we stayed in a Casita). The food was rather underwhelming - not awful but nothing to remember. We like eating nicely and at the prices they charge ($16 for a burger, $25-$40 for dinner entrees) you'd expect a lot more then you get.

Eat out at some of the nearby local restaurants - it's about $30 round trip in taxis but the food is well worth it compared to the hotel food.

The hotel is a good overall value, it has it's own island and water park. Good selection of restaurants.

New Parents' Get-Away

Luxury and tropical paradise at its finest. My wife and I headed down to Las Casitas for a long weekend of relaxation, and our first trip without our 15 month old daughter. I can't remember the last time I slept so well. The beds were so comfortable, and Las Casitas was so peaceful (El Conquistador's rooms looked nice too, but it's a different setting over there...not quite as luxurious and serene as Las Casitas). Las Casitas was absolutely gorgeous, from the rooms, to the cliffside views, to the infiniti pool...and not to mention terrific service all-around. Most of the reastaurants, bar, and activities were on the larger, El Conquistador side of the resort. We walked everywhere (it's doable if you're on the Las Casitas side nearest to El Conquistador...if you're not you can call for a golf cart to pick you up and take you over any time), and there is a lot of ground to cover. There are so many restaurants, pools, bars, shops, etc at El Conquistador. We ate at a different restaurant every night, but the one thing we did do every night was get ice cream at the ice cream stand across from the casino...it was delicious. The beach, which is on the resort's private island, is gorgeous as well. It's setup like this since the resort is cliffside, so there is no beach access. A fairy boat picks up twice an hour down below (a roller-coast like elevator setup takes you down from the resort to ground level, where shops, restaurants, and the marina are located). It really wasn't a burden, the only thing would be if you're the type that wants to walk out of your room to the beach every day...that's not possible at this resort, although with the view we had and all the luxurious accomodations, this wasn't a problem for us. We also did a spa day. Now I'm no spa expert, I've been to a few, but this is hands-down the best I've been too. Impeccably beautiful facilities, jacuzzi, sauna, etc. Total relaxation at it's finest. One last recommendation would be the night-time kayaking where you go to see the reflective-light organisms in the lagoon (kind of like lighting bugs in the water). Truly amazing experience, just so cool...words can't describe it.
