Palomino Island - Review

Isla Palominos or the Palomino Island is an uninhabited, small and absolutely spectacular island that measures about 102 acres. The island is in fact the largest of the 3 islands situated near Puerto Rico. Most part of the island has been rented to the El Conquistador Resort for their water and beach activities. Here at the Island, you would be able to create unforgettable memories while enjoying a romantic evening beside the glistening white sands and crystal clear waters of this stunning oasis. Take a leisurely horseback ride along the shores, spend a day snorkelling among the beautiful corals or unwind at the waterfront cafe with an exotic cocktail. Escape to the tranquil and inexplicably beautiful Isla Palominos and uncover over hundred acres of unspoiled and secluded beauty.

Palomino Island, San Juan Reviews

  • If your gonna sleep in Puerto Rico this is the place. Great hotel better restaurant and bar. The rooms were clean and I got a straight razor shave in the presidential suite. The 5 pools and hot tubs were a plus. And all of this coming on the heels of 3 category 4 hurricanes. They will bend over backward to serve you. Great service is their first and last name. Oh yea one last thing there are lots of things for the children to do. Would I recommend this place. Yes yes yes.

  • My son and I stayed here July 2017. Pros: there is a water park and multiple pools on the grounds. We also had access to their private beach. The grounds are beautifully kept. The Japanese restaurant is the only restaurant with decent food and friendly staff. Cons: the rooms are nice enough but smelled very, very musty. The floors should be wood instead of carpet, because guests go into the rooms wet, which is probably what causes the musty smell to get into the carpets. The air conditioner was leaking. The mattresses weren't comfortable. The staff wasn't friendly at all. There are only a few restaurants, and the food is just ok, and overpriced. For a Waldorf Astoria hotel, I expect way better. I won't be returning.

  • Staying in the Las Casitas Village side of the resort. The Villa is immaculate however the resort itself is still very apparently struggling to recover from the hurricane. Not officially open to the public but even the limited services they are advertising seem to be frequently unavailable. Hopefully they can continue to recover and fully reopen. Some of the unfinished repair work leaves a lot of questions in my mind.

  • Improving a lot since the hurricane last year, but there is still work to do. Most of the facilities and restaurants are not operating yet. Rooms are nice and clean.

  • During my employ with Nortel Networks, El Conquistador was chosen as the venue for Partnership, a Caribbean gathering of telecommunications executives. To reminisce, we chose this hotel for a pre-cruise decompression necessary for an ideal vacation. Paradise! El Conquistador has its own private Island: Palomina, complete with beach chairs and towels only a short ride - 8 minutes- in one of the catamarans owned by the resort, which also has beach service, water sports, casual dining and horseback riding. Not sure what hurricane forces have done, but this is an ideal place to visit.
