El Conquistador Resort was everything as advertised! The staff was friendly and eager to serve. The facilities were clean and everything was in proper working order. It was clear they are working their way back from natural disasters but they are "top shelf" when it comes to making your stay in Puerto Rico special. There was something for all of us. The water park was clean and enjoyed by all of us. The pools and hot tubs were clean and never overcrowded. The live music was entertaining at night and dining was delicious. Thanks for the exceptional Island Hospitality!

Absolutely stunning property! The resort overlooks pools, marina, and the ocean. Every morning (and all day) we had the most gorgeous view of the ocean. The property was hit hard after the last hurricane and they have been rebuilding it. They are doing an incredible job! This is gorgeous and fun for all ages! We enjoyed the water park, pools, restaurants and took the ferry to the private island. We would definitely consider going back!

The outside reception by David was just perfect. And Evelyn’s walking us to our room was the personal touch that we frequent travels yearn for, and will save resorts like these. lovely place and people.

This stay was overall quite wonderful. The resort had plenty to keep us busy between the pools, island getaway, and waterpark. The only negative thing i have to say is the food at the resort was mediocre at best and WAY over priced. We shopped and brought our groceries there. Otherwise, the place was beautiful!
