My family and I (4 adults, 1 toddler, 1 infant) stayed at Las Casitas Village at the El Conquistador Resort for 5 nights in a beautiful 2 bedroom casita overlooking the ocean. If you're looking for an easy destination from the east coast in a setting that seamlessly offers both luxury and family friendly amenities, I highly recommend this place. What we loved:
- The size of the casitas and full kitchen. Perfect for a family with young kids that needs to think about nap times and doesn't want to eat every meal at a restaurant.
- The attentive staff including the butlers. At Las Casitas, you're assigned a butler who's available for your every need (help with luggage, golf cart to the main resort, broken coffee maker).
- You're at the El Conquistador Resort but not in the middle of a big hotel. You have full access to the resort and Las Casitas staff will shuttle you back and forth as needed (we never waited longer than 5 minutes). If you stay in the North side of the village, you can easily walk to the main resort.
- Multiple pools throughout Las Casitas Village so you're always close to a family friendly pool.
- We didn't go to the Coqui water park or take advantage of the kids camp because your children are too young but these are amenities we'll take advantage of in the future.
What to think about:
- The resort is set on a ridge overlooking the ocean. The beach is located on a private island that you access by hotel ferry during the daytime. Palomino Island has a beautiful beach, tons of activities and you can hike all over the island. But it's not steps from your room so you need to plan accordingly. Also the ferries are supposed to run every 30 minutes but sometimes the wait can be an hour. For what it's worth, our toddler loved the golf cart to the elevator to the funicular (a short incline) to the ferry boat.
- Las Casitas Village has a daytime bar/grill by the main infinity pool and a breakfast spot in the North village. After 5:00, it's either room service or a shuttle to the main resort for drinks or dinner (or cook yourself).
- Request the North Village is you want to be close to the main resort and very close to the spa. The South Village is better if you want to be a bit more secluded.
- Rent a car. It's an easy drive from the airport (45 min), you get a free parking spot right by your casita, and there are some excellent restaurants within 5 minutes of the resort including Estacion (the best), Calizo and Tasca OleLelolai.
