The hotel is magnificent and has a fresh menu with all self grown organic vegetables. The service is impeccable and the pampering unbelievable. I would only suggest more options as to things to do onsite (for the non-golfers) rather than having to get out of the most spectacular facilities and leave. Great for honeymooners that want a very private secluded... More

Royal Isabela is a truly unique place. It is a golf club that rents out casitas. It has spectacular views and is incredibly peaceful. The property is beautiful and the staff very nice. Unlike other vacation spots, it is not overcrowded. I think there are only 21 casitas. We went with our family of four and stayed comfortably in our... More

I live in Puerto Rico and I never imagined this place exists. It's like you're in another country, without underestimating my beautiful PR. We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was the best choice we made. Everything about this place is just perfect!!! Clean, romantic, relaxing,isolated from everything, in conclusion, I recommend it with eyes closed!!!. The staff was... More

We visited RI this week for a round of golf, a Christmas gift from my lovely wife who likes to indulge my addiction to beautiful golf courses. From the moment you arrive at the gated entrance you know this is going to be an exclusive, special experience at an even more special place. Staff at the pro shop were incredibly... More

A previous reviewer was right. One does not choose Royal Isabela for an on the beach experience. You choose it for its unique qualities. The setting is spectacular. The view of the water and sound of waves from casita 11 (as well as location on property) was outstanding. We could see the water from our room. We enjoyed our private... More

I can't even begin to say how amazing this place is. It is truly paradise, and I don't use that praise lightly. Everything , from the moment you arrive ,until you leave is perfect. My husband loved the golf ( understatement ) but we both loved our casita, the restaurant ( amazing food every day), the grounds, the views and... More

THE BEST!!! We like to pride ourselves in knowing the nice spots of Puerto Rico.... but how have we missed this gem until now?! The ultimate in it all... The Scenery. This spot is breathtaking! They took a gamble and put their golf course along the coast which makes for 18 holes that you will not find anywhere else! This... More

Wow! Paradise found :)! Can't wait to come back soon! Celebrate my daughter's birthday in private casita # 14! From limo to salt water plunge pool, private quiet beach, beautiful landscaping and the sweet smell of wild ginger flowers... Thanks to Royal Isabela, they have done everything right!
