For the past 9 years, my family has vacationed over the week of Thanksgiving. We've been to many beautiful beach resorts, and this year was no exception. Our vacation at The El Conquistador was the right mix of beach, pools, relaxation and adventure. We stayed at Casita Village. It was spacious, and the ocean view was lovely. We had a 2 bed/2bath so it was very confortable to share with our 2 teenagers. The location of the Casita was beautiful, with stunning ocean views at every turn. If you're on the fence about where to stay within the resort, there's one big reason to pick Casita Village: The infinity pool. You must be a Casita guest to access it, and it is truly one of the most beautiful views I've ever experienced.
Be prepared for an expensive food bill by the end of the week. The restaurants are expensive (however, the service throughout the hotel is excellent) and the food is average. Not a huge deal, but it's worth mentioning.
Overall, a fantastic week with plenty to do for all ages. Be prepared to walk. A lot. But that's a good thing in my book!
