We had a romantic getaway to escape the dreary NYC winter and to unwind. We loved the peace and serenity of the resort and really enjoyed the experience, especially the privacy of the individual villas (casitas), the deck, amazing ocean views and the private salt water soaking pool. We were so tired and stressed and in no time we switched... More

I heard wonders about Royal Isabela and was looking forward to visit. While vising the west side of Puerto Rico we decided to stay a night there. We booked last minute and arrived at night. The main gate was discrete but elegant. We drove around the property until we got to the lobby. This is not a resort style facility... More

I've been putting off writing a review of our week-long honeymoon in September, 2014 because I worry I won't be able to come up with enough superlatives to describe this remarkable place. We still talk about our stay almost daily, and its been 6 months. Royal Isabela is that good. It was the first time to PR for both of... More

Well, words cannot describe how fantastic Royal Isabela is. It was built by a tennis legend and his brother, and you feel like a guest at their private estate, which happens to include a fabulous, highly rated golf course, which we played. Staying here is very expensive, but the accommodations are in luxurious casitas overlooking the ocean, each with its... More

I apologize in advance if my review is long. My husband has never been to PR. I have been many times to party. I wanted to stay some place different and exclusive to show him a good time. I chose the Royal Isabela because of the beautiful pictures and awesome reviews. The reviews and pictures do not give this resort... More

I chose Royal Isabela based upon the reviews. I wanted a secluded getaway for my honeymoon. Let me start by saying my expectations were surpassed! We arrived later than expected to the resort, so I called to provide a heads up of our lateness. We were advised "no worries". My husband and I were hungry and did not want to... More

Excellent place for rest, give and receive love. Very good restaurant!!!! Massage service is the best of all. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Quick check in and check out. I recomend this hotel for couples and family too. They arrange all for you.

My wife and I just returned from a week at the property and cannot wait until we return. We were staying at a larger property on the other side of the island and were extremely disappointed. After some quick searching we stumbled upon Royal Isabaela via a simple Google search. Within 10 minutes, Evelyn and the team as able to... More

Exceptional service and amazing food. This is a great place to get away. We often felt that we had the entire resort to ourselves. The golf course was outstanding. The back 9 runs right along the cliffs and has some great risk and reward. Not much of a beach but the in room pool makes up for it. Highly recommend.

After listening to friends rave and also reading enthusiastic reviews about Royal Isabela, my husband and I recently decided to book a stay for our 20th anniversary and make it into a whole-family affair. With two teenaged kids, a girl of 16 and a boy of 12, finding activities for all of us to agree on is a trying endeavor.... More
