El Conquistador has a lot of great attributes and a few drawbacks. Overall, it was the staff who made this vacation so amazing. Stacey, Yomarie, Cesar, and Arianna remembered us each morning at Las Brisas and even tried to help with our Spanish. Julio aided our experience of Puerto Rican food at Cafe Caribe. Jessica in concierge and Marisol at the front desk answered our questions tirelessly the seven days we were there. Our two children loved the experience of going to the island and learning to snorkel from Tony at Aqua Adventures. We are so grateful to all of the staff.

Front desk staff were very kind & serviceable. Welcomed my girls & I with complimentary drinks at the bar, gave us a better room upgrade without having to ask, with a porch. The room and estate was extremely clean. I liked that they had a little bodega in the lobby floor, the drinks and food impeccable.. Not to mention how breathtaking the pool area is.

As others have mentioned, I scared myself by reading the reviews. Once my husband and I arrived we were mesmerized by the beautiful scenery and spacious hotel. I had spoken to concierge before we arrived and had been told we would be given an upgrade to our room if available since we were celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Our expectations were exceeded when we walked in to our ocean view room! It was breathtaking! I do agree with others that certain features of the hotel and rooms need to be upgraded, but if you can look past a few minuscule things you will enjoy yourself. We were able to visit the beautiful private Palamino Island by way of ferry. This location was breathtaking and well taken care of. We had a wonderful guide as we toured the island on horseback. The food was expensive, but at the same time, delicious. The service was remarkable. Everyone was willing to have conversation and make suggestions on things to do and places to go. We enjoyed our entire vacation, but it wasn't until we turned around from the upscale restaurants and walked into a quiet bar that we found the BEST bartender ever! We were greeted instantly by Heidi who took us in as if we had been friends for years. She not only made the best drinks, but also was so knowledgeable about the area. This is the one bar that you will actually get quality over quantity. One sip, and you'll realize she takes great pride in her work. We enjoyed Chops Steakhouse on two different occasions. Make sure that you are hungry when dining here, as the portions are huge and the steak is delicious. Although we had wonderful meals at all of the restaurants we especially enjoyed the food and service that we received from Eli at La Piccola Fontana. He not only welcomed us in very late in the evening, but then catered to our every need. Our only complaint was the Tiramisu dessert that was much more like cake than the traditional Italian dessert that we are used to. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip from beginning to end thanks to everyone at the El Conquistador. We will be back!

Stayed seven days there. The grounds and facilities were well kept. For an older hotel it is kept clean and in good repair. Palomino island provided a wonderful beach experience with all the amenities you need. We ate at several of the resort restaurants and all were top notch island service and food flavorful. A dive excursion to the reefs also well done by the dive store personnel. We met several families and couples who have returned to this location several times due to being satisfied with the resort and services. My wife and I are definitely returning to this location!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure staying at this resort. I'm far from a snob but I would like to offer my opinion. I would think to carry the title of being a "Waldorf Astoria " resort I believe certain standards should be met. I.e. fresh paint cracks everywhere. Rust on the mountainside elevator.. with the ac unit that drips continually. Rooms need major renovation as well as resort. They make you charge everything to the room. So be careful. A small bottle of water is almost 3 dollars. The local beer medalla is a 10oz can. You can get a bucket of 5 10oz cans for 20$. What a steal!! If you want to really get crazy you can upgrade to a delicious Heineken for just 5$ more. Oh I might add this bucket of Heineken are 5 8oz cans. Now thats what I call a bargain. Whewww. Corona I have to add is 6$ and that is just for one. Tax in Puerto rico is 11.5%. Not bad huh. So if keep track of what you're charging to your room..because they certainly are. Bottles of water..dasani Fiji etc.. 6 to 7 dollars. They are the larger bottles though. If That makes a difference. I mention all this to you because if you are in vacation mode and are sucking down the 6 dollar coronas, the 8 oz Heinekens...or even the perfectly measured out 12 to 14 dollar mixed drinks. You will get drunk and it will be a very expensive single day. As far as food goes. Appetizers range from 8 to 16$ dinner is 18 to 36$. Hamburgers are 14$ and a chicken ceaser salad is 16.. I cant itemize it all.. however.. I'm sure you can figure out what the grouper or steak is gonna set you back.. Now I'd like to be fair and not seem like I'm bashing the resort. The customer service is amazing very helpful and very pleasant. I can't possibly have a bad thing to say about them. The food is good (not out of this world) but very good. Just extraordinarily over priced. Another bit of information .. do not bring alcohol to the palomino island. They check bags so no smuggling y'all .. You are forced to buy the 6 dollar corona and the 5 dollar 8oz Heineken. Chops steak house is not great. Especially for the price. Friendly staff just expensive. Blossoms is delicious with amazing staff and owner comes out and shakes ur hand. Go to luquillo for comida tipica ( authentic food) and $2 .40 Coronas.that right you heard 2$ versus 6.. luquillo is a 20 minute drive . Safe area and great energy. Taxi is 70$ round trip not including tip. Uber is difficult to get ..but do ur best because it cost us 31 dollars round trip.. Just want to end this by applauding the front desk and the entire staff. Thank you.! Mr. El conquistador lower your prices. Your guests will be more likely to stay on premises.
