First time to Fajardo – and Puerto Rico. Lovely Resort with beautiful views of the ocean and islands if you are lucky to get balcony views. Far from town – however we had a rental and able to get around. There are not many restaurants in the vicinity. Hotel has a couple of nice restaurants but very pricey – the pool restaurant – passable, the Italian food – excellent but very pricey, steak house was the best. Lots of shops also on the higher end but have nice stuff. The ferry to palomino island is very nice and well kept. Hotel grounds have multiple pools and are shared with the Conquistador just a few steps away. We scheduled massages at the spa and it was very nice- although as it was late we were unable to enjoy the other amenities offered. House keeping was excellent, although they begin at 8:30 a.m. … too early for vacation so I would recommend you let them know if you prefer getting up later. Evening turn-down can also cause interruptions. Concierge services were okay – recommendations did not turn out as very successful – we lost a morning waiting on a private reservation – no show. Disappointed. No nightlife or variety - very quiet. 30-45 min from San Juan.
In all a very nice resort, lovely beach at palomino – plenty of activities are offered and available. Recommend for a romantic stay or family.More
