From the moment we first arrive to our very reluctant departure, we enjoy first class amenities, world class waterfront resort and a staff that it is second to none. Recommended to couples, family and everyone that wants to have a wonderful vacation getaway.

An incredibly romantic resort. Hearing the frogs chirping at night, the ride to a private island Palamino and then the breathtaking views sitting high atop looking down onthe incredible ocean. Just a lovely hotel! I do think they are in need of renovations -- but even so -- wonderful!

We stayed at the El Conquistador for six nights during Thanksgiving week, Nov 2014. We had booked through Costco. We were given a room in the Marina Village which is closest to the Coqui Waterpark and ferry to Palomino Island. Here's the facilities we used in the resort and what we thought: :) Concierge in the Lobby - The Concierge...

Had a wonderful time while at the El Conquistador. We truly enjoyed beaching at the private island, Hiking trails to secluded beaches, and participating in the waterslide competitions. The hotel however is aged. The rooms are dated, the paint is either chipped or worn down to bare wood, and overall decor seems not to have changed since they opened. We...

I cannot say enough, from the butler to every bartender; everything was amazing!!! The Island of Palomino is a great addition. We stayed at Las casitas and had a full kitchen with an amazing view. It felt so private and yet we were in a resort with so many amenities!!

Recently stayed there for a conference. The hotel was breathtaking and I enjoyed having to take a cable car to my room. Quality and price of the food was a bit disappointed. Front desk service was incredible, however wait staff in the food establishments was not what one expect from a Waldorf Astoria level resort- bartenders didn't know how to...

A slice of paradise! My husband and I are blessed to be able to come to the ElCon every year. We come here because it is beautifully located overlooking the water. We also come here because the ElCon staff truly treats us like family. Everyone is friendly and will go out of their way to take care of our needs....
