El San Juan Resort & Casino or El Conquistador

My husband and I are looking to stay one night post cruise in Puerto Rico. After much research, I think we should stay at El San Juan Resort & Casino or El Conquistador. We are looking for a hotel with a great beach and nice restaurant to have dinner at. We just want to relax. Which one would you recommend? Thank you for the assistance in advance.

Two completely different areas.

El San Juan is in Isla Verde, 15min from either pier. Restaurants and nightlife within the hotel and options within walking distance.

El Conquistador is in Fajardo, 45min from San Juan. A very expensive taxi ride vs a car rental. It is a resort away from the city. Nothing is walking distance. To access the beach you take a short boat ride to Palomino island, inlcluded with your stay.

Thank you. I knew they were in different locations, I did not realize they were so far apart. I saw that there is also the Intercontinental and the Ritz by El San Juan Resort. Of these, which one do you recommend?

All three are great. If it is just one night choose by price. All of them are almost side by side so you can still walk to any of the restaurants.

The Ritz is a 15min walk from the main area of Isla Verde, but for just one night you can stay within the complex and just eat there.

The Intercon and El San Juan are next to each other, so choose based on budget.
