Expert Review

Puerto Rico’s largest resort is located near El Yunque rain forest and sprawls across 500 acres atop a 300-foot bluff – a funicular descends to the sea where a catamaran shuttles guests eight minutes to a 100-acre private island with its own beach. The property encompasses four “villages” with 750 rooms on different levels of the hill, plus Las Casitas, a hotel-within-the-hotel offering 154 luxury villas. Most of the action takes place at the top level, home to the outsized lobby, casino, tennis, 18-hole golf course, and extended convention facilities. As if that wasn't enough, El Conquistador has a sea-side water park with three slides, including one with a thrilling 40-foot near-vertical plunge. With more than a dozen restaurants, there are plenty of dining choices, though most of them skew expensive. The Asian-themed Golden Door Spa is one of the Caribbean’s most renowned.
