Perched on a 300-foot bluff on the northeast tip of Puerto Rico, El Conquistador boasts remarkable views of the Caribbean Sea – as well as a myriad of amenities befitting a four-star accommodation.
Now part of the Waldorf Astoria family, El Conquistador offers roomy suites and guest rooms with incredible landscape or ocean views within its five villages. You can also opt for a secluded enclave of one- to three-bedroom villas within Las Casitas Village.
Take a short catamaran ride to private Palomino Island, and pass the time on a white sand beach or snorkel in the calm waters. Hang out in a comfy lounge chair with a tropical drink served by our staff, then have lunch at Iguana’s, a casual, oceanfront café.
For families, El Conquistador also offers Coqui Water Park. Pools and water rides (like the lazy river and speed slide) are a great way to refresh and play. You can also make use of the seven outdoor pools and whirlpools, including a lap pool, pool with swim up bar and activity pool. If you’re staying at Las Casitas, you’ll also have three private pools at your disposal.
Golfers will enjoy the championship course. They can even improve their game by scheduling a lesson with a pro. Other amenities include clay and hard surface tennis courts, a fitness center and the world-renowned Waldorf Astoria Spa.

El Conquistador Resort, Fajardo & Humacao Areas hotel review Visited: April 2011
I have been going to this resort for over 11 years, and it has been amazing every time! However, the resort is pricey, so I suggest going off of the resort every now and then for food. This is a good way to enjoy not-pricey, authentic Puerto Rican food.
Back in 2010, people were complaining about bed bugs. This is not a lie. The bugs are not bed bugs, they are mosquitoes. Puerto Rico is humid, and sometimes bugs may get into your room. However, the resort has taken care of this issue.
I also recommend buying the breakfast plan. It is so much easier and cheaper. Also, people have to understand that if the faculty doesn't help them right away, it does not mean that the resort is terrible. You have to realize that there are a couple hundred people staying in the resort, and they might have been ahead of you in line to be helped.
In addition, this resort is great for children and adults.
However, the spa doesn't have the best service. For children, there is a kids' club, a water park and more. Palomino island is amazing too!
However, the whole island isn't private like the resort stated. They do have a nice big slice of the island. While you are at the beach, though, I don't recommend the food there. Have lunch before you get to the island.
Overall, El Conquistador is beautiful! Don't stay in the resort the whole time, though. Try out an excursion, or rent a car. Puerto Rico is beautiful, and El Conquistador is the best place to go!

Buyer beware! El Conquistador Resort is three-star resort posing as a five-star.
The resort is in a beautiful location, and the amenities are very nice. However, the service is no where near luxury. Management is having issues with the union and it shows.
The food is cafeteria quality at New York City prices. I do not recommend this resort, unless you can go at a steep discount.
Also, rent a car because they gouge you on prices for everything. Caveat emptor!

This hotel was absolute paradise. It was full of its own restaurants, and some were from the states. They even had a Starbucks.
There were three pools and a ferry to Palomino Island. At Palomino you can scuba and snorkel. It's not just some boring dive. The people are so nice.They put out some food for the guests. You can swim, and they give you good advice. They even let you jump off the boat sometimes!
