We recently stayed at the El Conquistador. It is quite isolated and you would need a car to go anywhere. San Juan was at least 1 hr away (without traffic). Did see a few little local places in the little town that you pass thru to get to the hotel. Did think that the food plan was not that good of a value. But, if you forgo appetizers or dessert (or share one) the prices were the same as eating at a nice restaurant anywhere. Do recommend dinner at their restaurant called "Blossoms". Also liked their French restaurant.

We really loved our stay. The grounds and views were beautiful. The buffet breakfast had many choices and a lovely setting. We found the 2 pools on the main level a bit too busy and noisy (we went to veg out) but found a very quiet pool down 1 level and they also had cabanas there as opposed to umbrellas at the other pools (just take the funicular down 1 level). There is no beach but they do have a boat shuttle that takes you out to their private 100 acre island. Small casino, some nice shops and I think there was a disco type place. We would definitely go back. Also the Golden Door Spa is there. Found the staff to be very polite and accommodating.

thanks for all the info recent. I have read some pretty bad reviews on here about the property, so It was great to hear from someone who enjoyed their stay. Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks

Sandy's in Fajardo is a must. Not much to look at, but as soon as you enter you'll know you made a good choice. Try the mofango(ummmm)
