    Excellent hotel, very senioral, a good walk inside the hotels tells you it is not only rooms for rents, it has different kind of entertainment and offers from gelato, some souvenir store and Starbucks. This concept of hotel are luxurious at a more or less affordable price. Highly recommended

    This place was terrible, bad expensive food, terrible service, dirty room, and unfriendly staff. I don't know what parallel universe the good conquistador others have reviewed exists in but this one was a steaming mound of crap. This is the only hotel I have ever felt compelled to leave after one night

    A colossal property, massive, unique, recommended

    A colossal property, unlike most other resorts in the Caribbean. Massive and self contained, just about everything you could want is on the property. Away from the hustle of San Juan, a favorite of many travelers.
