We had our destination wedding at El Conquistador (ceremony at Las Casitas and reception at El Faro Terrace). We worked with Yajaira Hernandez, who was wonderful. She was very responsive, and you can count on her to make sure your wedding day is special and exactly what you want. Beautiful destination and great food.

We recently had our wedding (80 guests) at the El Coquistador and were thrilled with everything! We had our ceremony at Las Casitas gardens and our reception at Trelisses - the scenery was spectacular and our guests were all blown away. We were debating about doing a larger wedding in our hometown, and we are so glad that we chose to do destination. Many of our guests came early and enjoyed the resort, and it was so convenient to have the ceremony & reception right where everyone was staying. My mom rented a casita in Las Casitas and it was absolutely perfect for getting ready and literally 90 seconds away from the venue. The food was great, and Yajaira Hernandez was a dream to work with. She put up with all my crazy questions and made me feel at ease with everything. I was terrified about rain, and constantly reassured me about the weather and patiently worked out a rain plan I'd be happy with - and we had the most perfect weather! I would highly recommend the recommend the resort for anyone considering a destination wedding.

We booked the El Conquistador Resort for our Honeymoon. After getting married in Carolina (Isla Verde) we moved to the El Conquistador in Fajardo for the week. It was a gorgeous resort with so much to offer. We had a room over looking the Marina which had a boat that took us to their own private island beach. They had more than 5 pools, many hot tubs, a fun game room/bar, many stores and shops, and it was just perfect!

Destination wedding is the best way to go! I got to spend a week with my family and friends at a beautiful all inclusive resort (world class golf, spa, private islands, 9 amazing pools, casinos, nightclubs, many resturants and more!) Everyone got to relax and get to know each other rather then cramming everything into one night! The night of the wedding we got to dance and have fun rather than walking around to each table to say thank you and rush to see everyone who attended!

The wedding planner helped you with everything and it was all at one place!! We got to do our food tastings, meet the cake designer, videographer, priest, photographer, etc....all at one place! It was amazing! I wouldn't do it any different!!!

Our daughter's wedding at the El Conquistador was a wonderful experience, from beginning to end. The facility is elegant, exudes grandeur, and is well kept. Our daughter and her husband were married at Casita Gardens and had their reception at the Mirador Terrace and Magnolia Ballroom. The food was superior, from the rehearsal dinner at Chops Restaurant, to the reception dinner in the Magnolia Ballroom.

The staff was attentive to all of our guests, 53 in total. Our guests were complimentary about their rooms, the spectacular ocean view, and all of the rooms were located in Las Brisas. In fact, except for a misplaced sense of urgency from the catering manager about some specific costs that came to light right after the ceremony, the staff was remarkably helpful and friendly.

In sum, a wonderful venue for a destination wedding or significant event. A great combination of magnificent location, excellent service and compelling ambiance. Highly recommended.
