I always wanted to stay at this beautiful hotel, and its surrounding s and the ambience met true to what I expected. It was very relaxing and and wonderful place to retreat, what I didn't like was the lax staff, the hefty prices at the restuarants and the not so tasty food! I expected so much more attention to detail by the staff and they acted like they could care less, as a puerto rican myself I found this insulting to the price tag! and they should defineately tell you how much money they will hold on your credit card, at check in. To find out that now it belongs to Hilton, they have a lot of work to do if they want to conserve and maintain the reputation the conquistador had. Palomino beach is beautiful and it was a great experience, I have been to a handful of resorts on the island and I was a bit disappointed at this one

Good: -Spend the extra money and stay at this Las Casitas Village resort versus the El Conquistador (they are both on the same premises). The resort is beautiful, very clean and the grounds are absolutely amazing including an infinity pool perched on top of a cliff with spectacular views of the ocean. -Laid back, relaxing atmosphere -Enjoyed eating breakfast on the outdoor terrace every morning -Very friendly and helpful staff -A Very Nice Private island. Enjoyable ferry ride that runs every ½ hour - (They are no beaches onsite) -Water Park was fun for adults and the kids -Nice golf course with magnificent views -Great authentic restaurants close to the resort -Close to Bio Bay and Rain Forest Bad: -The Funicular is the only means of transportation to the lower level of the El Conquistador resort that provides access to restaurants, Water Park, and ferry. There are 2 with a capacity of 30. Depending on time of day, we waited upwards in 2+ hours for a ride. This is absolutely ridiculous. -Average to poor overpriced food and drink on premises, Go offsite! -Over 1 hour ride from airport, not the best of locations off the resort -Everything is expensive, Water Park, restaurants, spa, golf, (be prepared) -The grounds of the resort are massive, be prepared to walk a good deal or call the butler service for a golf cart ride. I didn’t mind it. -The gym has outdated equipment.
