The El Conquistador was one of my favorite places that I have stayed in the Caribbean. After reading mixed reviews, I can say that this place is VERY nice and has a lot to do. The food and beverage prices are fairly high, but expected at a place of this caliber. Palomino, the private island that the resort owns, is my new favorite beach and only a 7 minute boat ride from the marina. Only guests are allowed and there is no body hasseling you to buy junk from them like you find on other beaches through out the Caribbean. It is convenient to get to with boats coming and going every 15 minutes. The water park (additional cost) is a great option if you have kids. The numerous other pools at the main hotel are great as well.
