Great property--not for those with mobility concerns

Would recommend Tue, Aug 11, 2015
My two sons (16 and 22) and I just got back from a 4 night stay at Las Casitas. The property was very beautiful and all the staff were really nice and welcoming. We had a spacious one bedroom villa overlooking the beautiful golf course. It had a fully equipped kitchen which was great for snacks, beverages and breakfast. The property, including the El Conquistador hotel, is huge and we walked everywhere. We had the chance to use the staff drivers to transport us with golf carts, but we would have to walk down two flights of stairs to the cart anyway, and we had no problem walking. The spa/fitness center for the Las Casitas property was gorgeous and well-equipped. The infinity pool was also gorgeous and we spent a lot of time there. One thing I didn't realize was that the beach was only on the private island--so we had to walk all the way to the opposite side of the property, take the funicular down a cliff and then ride a ferry to the beach. The ferry only operated from 9-5:30, so no late night beach walks! We ate lunch on property, mostly at the outdoor restaurants by the pools, and they were adequate, but expensive. On our last night we had dinner at Chop Steakhouse and it was delicious, but again, pricey. We had a car (free parking) and all our other meals we either cooked in the room or ate off property, which was fine. We also did the Bio Bay tour with an offsite company and that was spectacular. It was really hard to leave--we can't wait to go back!

Great Stay

Would recommend Wed, Nov 12, 2014
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 saver

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....

Would not recommend Sun, Mar 16, 2014
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

Would recommend Sat, Mar 24, 2012
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.

Attractions

Check out El Yunque rainforest, which is quite close, and well worth the trip.

Recent 1-week getaway

Would recommend Tue, Mar 6, 2012
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.

Dining

La Estacion is just outside the resort; excellent grilled seafood/meats. Service can be slow, make sure to make a reservation.

Beautiful setting - food doesn't match

Would recommend Sun, Feb 26, 2012
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.

Dining

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.

New Parents' Get-Away

Would recommend Mon, Apr 18, 2011
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.
