This is one of our favorite places to stay in the world! It has horseback riding, and wave runners, sailboats, kayak rentals. It also has a restaurant, bar and gift shops. There are corn hole, miniature golf, and volleyball. You can also go hiking up the mountain. Would highly recommend this place👍👍❤️

This is the best part about staying at The El Conquistador. I wanted to live here on Palomino Islanf. The bar is great, drink deliscious and the chicken salad in the pineapple boat is a yummy lunch.

very enjoyable day at the beach... they will bring your food and drink out to your beach chair... we got in the water and got right back out because there are a lot of rocks and it's not too clear. Make sure you have water socks.

This private island is only accessible to guests of El Conquistador/ Waldorf Astoria of Fajardo. Lots of beach activities on island (for rent),and food and drink is available for purchase (not cheap, but to be expected on a private island). Well worth the trip if if you are staying at this hotel. Not to be missed- private and pretty.

We went here for the afternoon when staying at El Conquistador and it really is a most relaxing place. Nice little bar (which we had to shelter in when a squall came through) and sunbeds. I thought the cost to rental jet skis was over the top but that shouldn't detract.

You don't have to stay at the hotel to get there. We went by private boat, like the locals do. It is a beautiful place to visit. White sand and pristine water. Take an umbrella since there is no shade. We also took our lunches and spend the day beside the hotel accommodations. Some boats have very loud music, but... More
