El Conquistador Resort, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel packs so many activities, choices and amenities into its grounds, you’d be hard-pressed to have a chance to try them all.
The AAA 4-Diamond-rated cliffside complex has five separate lodging areas, each with their own amenities. All are done in a whitewashed airy style with light colored modern furnishings and pops of Caribbean color. For those who want an even more upscale experience, the exclusive Las Casitas Village area has private pools, restaurants and butler service, at a hefty additional fee.
This is definitely not an intimate resort. Be prepared to wait for a tram to get you where you want to go. A catamaran ferry whisks guests a few minutes away to the resort’s private Palomino Island, where watersports, horseback riding and exploring await.
For less active pursuits, the Waldorf Astoria’s Spa and salon are considered among the best on the island.
Although past guests say on Trip Advisor that the hotel restaurant options are tasty and varied, some lament the “outrageous” prices and recommend renting a car for off-site dining.
