Where to Stay in Fajardo

Planning to stay in this eastern town gives you access to a variety of unique experiences, including beautiful beaches, day trips to nearby islands or exploring the interior of the island.

When it comes to lodging, the quality is much greater than the quantity, and you can choose the kind of experience you’d like to have. You can pamper yourself at a top-rated luxury property, or you can discover the hospitality of the island and a small, family-owned inn. Whichever choice you make, you’ll find friendly staff, outstanding service and ample amenities. For something in-between those two, you’ll also find a selection of apartments and vacation rentals through online platforms.  

El Conquistador Resort and Las Casitas Village

Nested at the entrance of the Cabezas de San Juan nature reserve, this luxury hotel is a true architectural wonder. Currently under renovations, the resort boasts European-style facilities and divine amenities, and positions Fajardo as a world-class destination.

Besides the state-of-the-art rooms, the hotel boasts plenty of activities available on-property without sacrificing its serene and relaxing environment. A day at the beach? El Conquistador has its own private cay, Palomino, which you access by boat for a day of warm sand and refreshing water. It’s up to you whether you   along the shore. You can also unwind at the wellness center and spa, or go shopping at one of the various boutiques and shops on-site.

Bring the kids and have a family-day at the Coquí Water Park, a place filled with exhilarating water slides and rapids. Or, you can opt to stay at one of the hotel’s seven pools and delight in a more relaxed atmosphere. You’ll also find a golf course and tennis courts available.

Stay at the hotel or at one of the villas at Las Casitas Village for an exciting and complete tropical vacation.

Fajardo Inn

Sitting at the top of a mountain near the pier, the Fajardo Inn has earned a reputation for excellence on the island. What started as a small 10-bedroom bed and breakfast turned into a 125-room resort worthy of repeat visits. The comfortable guestrooms accommodate from one to six people and offer a variety of amenities to make your stay more comfortable. There are two outdoor pools — one of which has a swim-up bar and waterslide. There are three conference centers and two restaurants — one of which was dubbed a mesón gastronómico (a designation given to exceptional Puerto Rican restaurants). Other amenities include tennis and basketball courts, mini golf course, fitness center, and beautiful tropical gardens.

La Roca Luxury Villas

With a majestic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Fajardo coast, La Roca Luxury Villas have one of the most privileged locations in the city. A true architectural statement on a Fajardo mountain, this location lets you stay in touch with nature while you retreat to its 12,000 square foot living space spread across three floors. The villa follows an open concept with minimalist textures of wood and glass, metal and concrete. The guesthouse can accommodate up to 15 guests and features a back terrace with the pool overseeing the ocean, the bioluminescent bay and the Cabezas de San Juan nature reserve. Not too shabby.
