Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback from your stay last year. I do want to apologize if pricing at some of the restaurants was higher than expected. It is our goal to provide great value to our guests, and it looks like we fell short of your expectations. I do recommend to always look into our packages...

My finance and I stayed at El conquistador for 6 days. The service was great, especially from the concierge who gave us some great trips on which excursions were worth it and the best way to get there (just rent a car). Although the beach is not on the actual property, there is a ferry that takes you to Palomino...

We recently went back to El Conquistador and had a much better time. We went in August, when schools had already started in PR, so we had a less crowded and more enjoyable stay. I noticed new and very nice furniture/lighting throughout in the lobby, a greener golf corse, and even the option of a family magic show in the...

Thank you for returning back to El Conquistador and for pointing out some of the new features at the resort. Yes, we have recently renovated the lobby area with new lighting and furniture. The Las Brisas Building and Las Olas buildings have both received new carpeting in all the hallways, and the Pablo Casals ballroom has also been remodeled. These...

Good: Grounds were well maintained Food on premise was good(hibachi at Blossom was the highlight) The restaurant staff was friendly and accommodating You can take your own food and drink most places and the staff turns a blind eye.

Awesome!!! Family friendly hotel with great views, very nice and comfortable rooms. Palomino Island wonderful, we did the horseback riding and the kayaks ++++. Staff could be a little more friendly and go with the "Puerto Rico does it better" slogan. Weather was perfect and we did enjoy the Coqui waterpark. Overall I highly recommend this hotel.
