El conquistador waldorf astoria resort and spa puerto rico: El Conquistador Resort | Puerto Rico Beach Resorts

Spa Time at the El Conquistador Resort, Puerto Rico

Girls’ weekend seems incomplete without a little spa time.  Our adventures included exploring Old San Juan, dining, shopping, scuba/snorkel trip, and plenty of beach time. We headed off to the Waldorf Astoria Spa, located in the lovely El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.

My first visit to the El Conquistador resort was last year, but this was my first time for spa treatments.  Each previous resort visit included a scuba dive, how had I not thought to follow up with a massage?  Hmm.

We arrived almost 2 hours before our appointment.  After parking, the signs on resort property clearly pointed us directly to the spa.  Check-in reception is located on the ground level, and the actual Spa is on the third floor.  There is a small shop on the ground floor for work out clothes, cover-ups, swim wear, and other items that may be needed for your resort stay.  At the third floor reception we received our locker keys complete with robe and sandals, plus a quick tour.  

The Spa area is simple and small, with a classic design throughout.  There are several corridors of treatment rooms, changing room/lockers, pre-treatment lounge, post-treatment Tea Room, Jacuzzi, steam room, bathrooms, and showers.  Everything is located indoor, on the third floor.  The resort pools are accessed upon leaving the spa.

There are two large spouts high on the wall providing a lovely cascade of water into the large Jacuzzi, with plenty of natural light from the skylight above.  The steam room is nestled on the shared wall of the Jacuzzi.  After a quick shower, we donned our robes and enjoyed a little quiet time in the lounge before service.

According to my fitness tracker, I racked up 8 miles of walking around Old San Juan the previous day, followed by an afternoon swim at Laquillo beach.  The spa appointment immediately followed a morning scuba dive trip (2 tanks).  When I explained my activities from the last 48 hours, the response was reassuring agreement from my therapist that I was due for a massage.   I received much needed attention to my IT band (iliotibial) and thighs.  My therapist understood exactly what I needed based on my aforementioned activities.  My massage was excellent!  I opted for a Swedish massage and felt relaxed and recovered at the end of the hour.  I will likely add hot stones to my service, or even the deep tissue massage for my next post scuba dive appointment.

Spa Treatment Room

After the service, I met my Spa buddy in the Tea Room.  I love the coordination and ease of a well-designed post service meeting area.  A common meeting room is so convenient when going to the spa as a group.  There was plenty of seating and a small selection of hot teas to choose from.

Tea RoomTea Prep Cabinet

We prepared and drank our tea, then compared our current state of relaxation and details of each service.  My spa buddy had spent the morning snorkeling from the dive boat, and she needed (and received) more shoulder and neck attention in her massage.  She also informed me that the dozen or so services she has received here are all consistently good.   We will be back for more!

While the service was quite enjoyable, there are certainly areas for improvement.  There were signs of wear in the showers and the furnishings all seem a bit worn.  Our beverage options were limited to ice water before service, and ice water or hot tea after service.  I would like to see options for flavored waters, iced tea, juice, and wine/cocktails.

We left the Spa shortly after our service.  Since the spa is entirely indoor, it would be a great option for a stormy day, or rainy morning/afternoon that are common in the Caribbean.  Otherwise, post treatment is the perfect excuse to lounge around one of the resort pools or take the ferry to Palomino Island for more beach time (complimentary service for resort guests).

I was given no special treatment other than being a paying guest at this Spa.  

Update:  I went back in October 2016, when the Spa was running special pricing for Spa Trio of Massage, Facial, and Full Body Scrub.  Here is the video tour from my October visit.

  • Not the most upscale Waldorf property but it is a great fun resort and big enough to keep you busy. The walk from the lobby to the Marina can take 25 minutes.

  • The pools are open 24/7, which is nice. Definitely take the time to make your way out on the catamaran to Palomino Island — it’s absolutely beautiful — as is the nighttime bioluminescent kayaking!

  • it’s crazy expensive here, but completely worth it. everything is so fancy and well maintained, the staff is very friendly, and the views are just breathtaking.

  • Private island is awesome…when thinking about what to do for dinner..go off the reservation. La Estacion (best meal in fajardo) and also kasavista are a better value and superior food.

  • Rent a car @the airport @enterprise, so you can park it @their lot @theConquistador vs having to pay for daily parking. Great places to eat within 5 minutes of the hotel.

  • Huge property with restaurants, pool tables, arcade, ice cream parlor, Starbucks, pools

  • Legit concern from a lot people about kids/family vibe vs. a romantic vibe. But a nice ocean view makes almost anything better.

  • Self parking is tricky. Make sure you pay/charge for your ticket back at the hotel before getting your car. No way to exit otherwise, even if staying multiple nights.

  • Stay at Las Olas if you can so you don’t have to depend on the funicular to get to the beach or marina bars, restaurants, shops. The lines for that thing can get long, and it’s the only way down.

  • Their private island is beautiful; service at their Starbucks sucks… I waited 10 mins for my frap.; cafe bella vista really does live up to its name; overall beautiful resort

  • We ate the pool side, really unique and tasty pizza. The arroz con pollo was good as well!

  • On of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been too. The private island is gorgeous and the pools are open all night. Going to come here at least once a year!

  • Beautiful location… Especially the private island. Very good hospitality… But, as usual with resorts, overpriced food and drink…

  • My Favorite Resort in P.R. The Marina Rooms are great. Avoid the first building is old.

  • Beautiful hotel. Food and drinks are pricey. Service was great. Annoying that you can’t bring your own drinks to the beach. Service is great though!

  • A great resort with good facilities and beautiful views.

  • The Coqui Water Park is a fun thing to do for an afternoon. Has some fun water slides.

  • Beautiful. Inexpensive. Will definitely come again! Make sure to get a room on the Marina side.

  • Great resort though the food could be better and it’s somewhat annoying to have to take a water taxi to get to a proper beach.

  • Amazing Resort,Great pools, restaurants and rooms. *DONT expect to experience great nightlife…. Because there’s none! Great place for daily activities and couples. Kids will love it!

  • It is a little inconvenient that you have to water taxi to Palomino Island to sit on the beach.

  • Bring Extra money for the Parking!!! if your plans are to stay all day go for the valet…your gonna pay less.

  • Beautiful resort with amazing views ! The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn’t ask for a better vacation !

  • Google Luquillo taxi to see all of our trip advisor and yelp reviews!

  • A little disappointing, older facility and could use a bit of a facelift. Lots of activities though.

  • We have been here many times in the past. Very sad to see this beautiful property pretty much abandoned. Does not deserve the stars. Took us over 1 hour to get to palomino. Hotel falling apart.

  • Resort gets a 10 of 10. Staff also gets 10 of 10. However, the drink prices are very high, the food was not really very good. I would have expected the food quality much higher at a Waldorf.

  • The Sting Ray cafe is good but pricey. The Dorado and Lobster Salad are delish! Forgo the seafood chowder. It tastes like canned Campbells Soup.

  • Golf is great and you’ll have the course to yourself.

  • Awesome service, gorgeous views and super comfy rooms

  • Look for your copy of The Pocket Concierge for the best Restaurants at El Conquistador

  • Drake’s is a super cool bar located upstairs. Billiards and cocktails. What more can a person ask for?

  • The Golden Door Spa is a great place for a massage.

  • a bit of let down. front desk staff seems to have other motivations aside from helping us out. The property is beat up, lots of torn up paint, cracked walls, broken elevator, etc. overpriced.

  • If you came here expecting this to be Waldorf quality, you’re in for a not so pleasant surprise.

  • Beautiful place…consider other drinking options. 11/12 bucks for a small cocktail adds a sad face to the wallet.

  • Nice environment!! Full of activities…Amazing place!!

  • Shuttle service with rum for the ride.. I you visit us in Miami you must check ul out #Epic downtown or #Fontainebleau Miami Beach

  • Great hotel if you love the beach and don’t mind the ferry ride . ..

  • Five star Paradise. Want to get pampered, take great pictures, have lots of fun. This is the place.

  • The marina outdoor bar has the best chicken Cesar wrap ever

  • I try to give it another chance but it was worths than the last time! Even jackhammers early in the morning with no notice what so ever and the staff was rude.

  • I’ve stayed in nicer rooms at a Hampton Suites.

  • Disappointing customer service, dirty pool & for going to the palomino island (the only proper beach) you have to wait in line for the water taxi (not convenient)!! Overpriced not worth the stars.

  • Hotel is 80s-90s looking. Disappointed-service and food are Hilton not Waldorf. Loud bar music by marina bar ruins ambiance. Average at best. Happy we are at The Ritz-Carlton instead.

  • Asked for a taxi to the ferry terminal, instead I was offered a private car. Was quoted $20, as soon as I loaded all luggage, was told it’s $30.

  • Beautiful! Worth the drive from town to Paradise… Amazing !

  • Beautiful resort. Will return!

  • Make sure your room is not next to the cable cars. It is loud and goes through the night.

  • Try the Spirit of Life treatment at the Golden Door Spa.
