Hotel has everything you require while on vacation. Restaurant prices high. Room air conditioner had to be cleaned/maintained - done right away. On Mother's day-my account charged for a huge family buffet-I did not incur-this was investigated and credited. Ladies steam room not working. Pool and Beach beautiful. Iguana's quite a sight :-). Resort program - list of events for everyone young and old.

El Conquistador hotel is in a beautiful spot on the east end of Puerto Rico. The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport and once you arrive you can spend your entire vacation eating, swimming, and relaxing on the resort. If you want to venture off resort there is plenty to do including a one hour drive to old San Juan and a 15 minute trip to El Yunque rain forest. The short boat trip to their private island Palamino is well worth the time, as it is a perfect place to spend a day in the sun. The water park is a blast and golf is excellent. The prices at the restaurants can be expensive, especially for kids, but you can work around it if you make good decision. Do not bother with Blossom Japenese hibachi grill, too expensive, but their sushi bar and chinese food is more reasonable. All in all a great family resort.

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.

This resort exceeded expectations. This is probably the nicest place I have stayed and I have stayed in some pretty nice places (4-5 star in Paris, Hawaii, Chicago). The grounds are gorgeous. The staff is the friendliest I have seen. Always wanting to help. Angel at the tour desk made our reservations for activites and clearly explained any details we needed to know. It is easy to go get a bike for biking or playing a round of golf. The room was probably the most basic that was available and was still over the top. It had an incredible bathroom and shower, very large room overall, cd player, porch with furniture, mini fridge that you could actually use (not just minibar fridge, but items were available for purchase if you like). The location was good for us right near the rainforest, but about 30 minutes from San Juan. Definitely rent a car but it is an easy drive. Of course this kind of service and presentation doesn't come cheap, but at least you get what you pay for. We visited another 4 star property in San Juan for gambling, and while it was nice, it wasn't over the top like the Bahia. So, despite the cost, there is a level of value here. No way I would return to Puerto Rico and stay anywhere else.
