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.

Bathrooms need work

Overall, the property is beautiful and the location is excellent. You can't beat the views. The problem is in the details. The bathroom of our room looked like it hasn't been updated in at least 20 years. The cleanliness/upkeep of the hallways leaves something to be desired. While there were attendants/servers around the pool area, no one came to offer us drinks in over 1.5 hours. The hotel is very family friendly, so if you are looking for someplace quiet, this is not the place for you. I would not return here.

Spring break

I have been to this resort over 40 times in the last 12 years . I am sorry to report the new changes are disappointing . The casino is no longer in the hotel , and the menu is now aimed at younger family's with children . French fries , burgers , chicken fingers . .. Etc.. Very disappointing .

El Conquistador

Very large resort....initial check-in a bit confusing. Tip do not self park first. Drive directly to hotel entrance. This place is so big a bellhop must take you to your room so you know where it is located. In other words you cannot find your room on your own. Other wise awesome resort, very friendly staff and unlike other reviews the food is really decent just at resort prices. But there are many restaurants within 10-15 minutes of resort that are better and at a much lower cost.

Get away opportunity

The staff were all very friendly and accomodating. The restaurants in the vicinity were great so we did very little eating at the hotel except for breakfast. The $16.00 plus each day for self parking was bothersome but I guess they all charge for parking. All in all its a beautiful place with its own private beach and several pools. We didn't meet anyone who had any complaints.

Although the hotel has some sophisticated restaurants, there are also several restaurants nearby where the food is excellent and can add to the variety of choices one has.

Kids Resort

Overall the resort needs some remodeling help. The actual resort is not close to what their website represents. Get ready for lots of kids!
