El Conquistador is on the Royal Islander property of the Royal Resorts in Cancun. Much to the delight of all patrons, this restaurant was rescued from another Royal property that was closing. The service and food are delicious. More upscale than a lot of Cancun...More

With members, renters and exchangers, it is difficult with the different charging packages. When booking a table or just turning up, the maitre D should explain what, if anything, you will be charged. As members we pay 100%.
