I'd love to write a review of the cocktail or ambience, but I never made it past the unprofessional, rude bartender....twice. The first time she snapped as us because our children were standing too close to the entrance. The next night, after waiting for 5 min, I asked for a very simple cocktail. Same bartender told me 'we don't have... More

I come to el conquistador a few times a year at least for work. I end up spending a lot of time at the Drake. As a business traveler its nice that this is an adults only bar as there are many families at el conquistador, which is understandable. Its nice to have a place where you can enjoy a... More

I come for business and stay here every 6 weeks and prefer this hotel due to the private island, excellent breakfast and amenities offered. That being said, I'd like to mention several outstanding staff who went above beyond to cater to my stay..Chops- Madeline at the bar always serves the best cocktails and with a smile. Also Drakes Martini Bar,... More

Be sure if you are having dinner nearby or staying at the resort you stop in at Drake's. Heidi quickly became a fan favorite. She made us feel so comfortable and gave us many tips for our stay in Puerto Rico...not to mention her martini's are solid! Great spot for pre or post dinner drinks.

Heidi is like Sam of Cheers. She's very welcoming, very energetic and helpful. The bar is small but intimate with a pool table and tv. Heidi is a wealth of information about Puerto Rico. She was one of the highlights of our trip.

The ambience in Drake's Martini Bar is Spanish-colonial with a low key vibe but the drinks are amazing and Heidi is very friendly and welcoming!

Here is my take on Drakes. My girlfriend and I stayed at the Waldorf Conquistador for a week and this was our to-go to place almost every night. Now, to be fair, we went on a business vacation so it was all expenses paid. If I had to pay for some of these drinks my review may be slightly altered.... More

Ever been to a martini bar at 8pm surrounded by children and then get served a martini in a WATER glass? Me neither until I stopped at Drakes in the Waldorf. Our martinis tasted like kerosene and were the temperature of bath water. Drake's is the height of overpriced resort swill. Caution is recommended.
