sadly not worth the cost! We felt like a herd of cattle being moved along through this overcrowded and over priced resort. The only beach access was on the overcrowded island which we stood in line to get on the ferry for close to an hour. Once there it was Too crowded to eat or drink anything and not enough...

Don't get me wrong, this is a beautiful resort, but by no means comparable to the Waldorf Astoria brand. The entire resort is in dire need of TLC. A fresh coat of paint would go a long way & please fix the elevators. On the plus side, I loved the peace & tranquility that the island's atmosphere offered. Taking a...

We went to ElCon in April 2017 – as a family of 4 (kids: one 15 and one 12) and we all felt it was a great place with some of the most beautiful scenery of anywhere we've ever stayed. Overall the service at the resort was pretty good but when we checked in the front desk seemed overwhelmed and...

The views, the space, this was a wonderful place to base our vacation. La Casitas is the only place government have your breakfast though. The restaurants are expensive and fine resort food but not top level. Palimino island is beautiful. We rented jet skis and had a ball. Bs g for the buck though goes to the magic show!! Reynold...

Where do I begin? This place is like a dream!! Very clean resort!! They have gorgeous views. We got bumped to a ocean view room which was located on a hill with the view of the pool and Palomino Island (they run a free ferry from the resort to Palomino island. Definitely a must do!!!)! The staff is very nice....

This resort caters to families looking for a beach get away. They offer golf, tennis, pools, a water park plus a private island with a beach. There is so much to do at the resort, plus there are excursions to the rain forest or into old San Juan that you can spend a week here. The hotel has chosen to...

Great place to stay in Puerto Rico. Rooms were clean. We had a las brisas ocean view room. The view was spectacular! Only thing they messed up on was our request for 2. Queen beds as we have two children. The manger was very apologetic and credited us money back and other extra perks. Want to specially mention breakfast. Good...

The pictures must be from a long time ago as this place is a dump. Don't be fooled by the Waldorf Astoria name. As a New Yorker its an insult to compare this property to the original in NYC. It is a hour outside of downtown San Juan so once your on the property your kind of stuck with overpriced...

First off, let me thank Jessica McDougall. She assisted in our reservation process and kicked off our vacation right. We had a room with island and ocean views, absolutely beautiful. The Conquistador is a great resort for family fun. My 4 and 11 year old loved the Coqui Water Park slides and Lazy River. We had a great time!
