Not the right one for us ...

Nice , new updated rooms, nice view from hotel room, parking is extra and the parking lot is a mile away from the hotel, valet is available at $ 22 per day. Place is just too big and it takes forever to get from A to B. This place is big, and that is it. In the time we spend there they never could get enough diver together to go out on a dive trip, very poor. If you are planning on diving, look for another resort.

A true paradise

The hotel is defintely a paradise. The location is breathtaking and the views look like a painted mural. The only problem is that we went during october which is very quiet and peaceful and a great time to go, but the hotel resteraunts do not stay open to late due to the lack of guests and i felt the food that was served had been frozen for a while. I am sure if we went during the tourist seasons of summer or holidays it will not be an issue. The only other negative is how expensive everything was. A medium bottle of water is 9 dollars in the gift shop. The hotel sucks the cash out from your wallet and is able too due to the surroundings of fajardo. There is nothing outside the hotel and it is unsafe after a certain time and it is a pity that they take advantage of that. The hotel is gorgeous, the views are spectacular and the island of palomino is an oasis in the middle of the sea. The sand is white and no one bothers you at all. I reccommend a stay at the conquistador but plan to spend money on food and incidentals.

No customer service at the front desk.

Over priced blan food along with mean mugging staff members. Out of the whole staff including the shops in the hotel there were two friendly employees out of the whole hotel. Not worth the price paid. If your thinking about staying at the hotel, stay somewhere else. The Passion Fruit would be better as far as getting service and the lady that runs it is uber nice. It's a little hotel but it comes with big service!! Don't over pay for a place if your going to be out a lot. If not that hotel then go to Vegas

Very Relaxing, beautiful..but Not Cheap!

The resort was breathtaking as far as the views and mountainous location.After waiting 1.5 hours to check in we made it to our room overlooking the ocean. Wow! Beautiful View.Resort offer many recreational things to do for of course a dollar amount. The prices were high.We went Kayaking twice & horseback riding. The resort is child friendly.Coqui water park inside hotel for adults and kids. Nice family atmosphere.If you go during summer be ready for the loud running kids in the main pool. But you can eat&drink poolside without leaving the water. Nice! Very clean.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The prices were high.We went Kayaking in the only bio luminous lagoon in the world at night.The hotel charges 90.00 p/p when locals there charge 45.00p/p. Horseback riding on the palomino island mountains were not what I expected.Resort charge $95 p/p for 45 mins. Thought since we were more experienced riders that we could spread out some, but we were not allowed to move out of the line they put you in. So if you're stuck behind a child or a very slow horse it's boring.No TROTTING! Cash does saves you lots of money when paying for events.Locals don't report that so you get better discounts!Everything is expensive!Either bring lots of Cash or credit card with high limit. Money Talks! Overall RELAXING
