Puerto Rico has been a hot spot for some of reality TV show favorites. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the R&B Divas and the Real Housewives of Atlanta all filmed in Puerto Rico and had episodes airing in 2014. The Puerto Rico episodes from the Real Housewives of Atlanta have not aired yet, because the season doesn’t start until November.

 

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Puerto Rico Season 4 Episode 17

During the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ stay in Puerto Rico Brandi and Yolanda confronted Lisa about how badly they thought that Lisa had been behaving. Lisa ended up crying. That scene sparked a chain of events that led to further name calling and accusations involving tabloids. It’s a shame that there was utter ugliness in such a beautiful place. Where did the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stay in Puerto Rico? The cast from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were accommodated at the El Conquistador Hotel.

The El Conquistador has its own water park, the Coqui water park, complete with a body slide, tube slide, speed slide, and a children’s slide. Of course, there’s a spa, more than a dozen dining areas, horseback riding, golf, a marina, an art walk, and a private island at the resort. So, there’s no reason to be bored at the El Conquistador, unless you want to be.

A room like this (with two queens or one king bed) had a rate of abut $369 a night for a weekend in November 2014. This is an ocean view room in the Las Brisas village. There was a less expensive room with a garden view at $219 per night. The rates do not include the daily resort fee that the resort charges to cover phone calls, wi-fi and other incidentals.

R&B Divas LA in Puerto Rico

The R&B Divas L.A. were in San Juan Puerto Rico while they prepared for their performance and sung a tribute to Puerto Rico at the Carnaval. The Divas stayed at the InterContinental San Juan. In the Puerto Rico episodes, the ladies tried to mentally pull together for their performance, but there was the usual drama and tension between some of the members of the group. It seems that most of the ladies were against Chante Moore.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta were in Puerto Rico in the summer of 2014, filming an episode for the fall. They were rumored to have done some shooting at the Hilton Condado.

Yes. There has been the typical drama, tension, and shade on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the R&B Divas L.A. and probably the Real Housewives of Atlanta (we’ll know for sure when the episodes air) but Puerto Rico and its resorts are the real winners, because all eyes have been on Puerto Rico in 2014.
