SELF CONTAINED DESTINATION
Representing over one million square feet of real estate, El Conquistador is a destination in itself and it is one of the most accessible mega resorts in the Caribbean. With an unmatched array of amenities and offering the most expansive and versatile meeting space in the Caribbean, the El Conquistador caters to large groups as well as domestic and
international leisure travelers. JLL is offering the opportunity to acquire this asset, fee-simple, with strong performance and unencumbered by brand and management, offering investors endless value-enhancement opportunities.
Within a 5.5 hour flight time for 232 million people, one unique benefit Puerto Rico enjoys over other Caribbean nations is the non-requirement of passports for U.S. citizens. As Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. Commonwealth, it makes the Caribbean oasis a favorable and highly accessible travel destination with hundreds of non-stop flights in and out of Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) every day, making Puerto Rico one of the most traveled destinations in the Caribbean.
Puerto Rico represents one of the most successful and diverse tourism markets in the Caribbean, attracting a unique
mix of U.S., Latin American and European visitors. San Juan is the financial hub of Puerto Rico located just 35 miles
east of El Conquistador. Additionally, located just to the east of the main island are the islands of Vieques and Culebra
which both feature world-class beaches and nature reserves as well as quality beachfront resorts. According to STR,
the Puerto Rican lodging market consists of 160 properties totaling 15,849 hotel rooms with a very low supply pipeline
consisting of 285 hotel rooms.
