We stayed in one of the 20 plus very private casitas and I would be surprised if any of the casitas did not have an awesome ocean views. When this property is complete in addition to its already completed golf course with Torrey Pines California ocean views it will have 20 plus one or greater acre home sites (only two... More

We like to find gorgeous smaller venues off the beaten path, with excellent rooms and restaurants. Royal Isabella was a home run. Not only was it breathtakingly beautiful (views and amenities which a great bar, restaurant, golf course, personal beach and each villa includes a personal pool/ jacuzzi) but we fell in love w/ the staff and the way the...

We spend a day over and I tried to make profit of it the most I could. It was so beautiful, private, comfy, the most romantic escape I've ever been. Totally recommended. The exclusivity, the people, the food, the view (impressive), it is a must see.

We travel a lot, so we tend to expect more. From the moment we walked in, we fell in love with the place. My husband and I were here on our honeymoon and the staff and management did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and special. We stayed in Casita 3 and it's beautiful. We had a great...

Came by to see what this place has to offer for my next vacation in Puerto Rico. Met a lovely young lady by the name of Sumayra Padin.

This place blew us away! We were a bit skeptical because we chose to rent a car, drive 1.5 hours to experience this place. We aren't golfers but we enjoy lovely hotels with fantastic amenities. The hotel photos don't do it justice and the casitas are HUGE. We loved the privacy and the ability to either hang out in our... More

We returned yesterday from our first trip to Puerto Rico. Thankfully our first search on trip advisor showed us the Royal Isabela Resort. We researched other areas in Puerto Rico, no other resort came near the beauty & upscale amenities as this hotel, if you would call it a hotel, we would call it an oasis of relaxation and serenity....

Incredible setting & views perched on top of cliff overlooking Atlantic Ocean! There are 20 private villas each with own small pool/hot tub. Not only does living/bedroom area open to view,but shower area also can be open air. The views of ocean breathtaking! Having said that, make sure you ask if your view is unobstructed...ours wasn't. Because they tried to... More
