We were looking for a quiet, well appointed resort to unwind and end the year. The Royal Isabella met all expectations. With only 20 Casitas, you often feel like you have the resort to yourself. The service was amazing too! When our luggage was delayed by the airline, the concierge followed up with the airline and carrier to ensure we...

Very private feel. Casitas are very secluded and designed for 2 people. Golf course offers immaculate views and was in good condition. Quiet atmosphere. Very relaxing getaway. Dinner at the restaurant was very good.

I am so disappointed. This was our 3rd time staying at the Royal Isabela. The first two times we stayed were magnificent. I fell in love with the tranquility and privacy that the casitas,and the resort in general, offer. This time, we checked in and were taken to Casita 5 as out concierge, Edwin, said that this was the only...

We were in Puerto Rico for the holidays. We stayed at the Wyndham Ro Mar (see other review) and had planned a day trip to play golf at Royal Isabela having heard good things. After a poor experience at the Wyndham, we decided to move to Royal Isabela. Our overall impression is that this could be awesome and was probably...

We left Puerto Rico and my mind is buzzing about the amazing experience we had. What a treat! Everyone at Royal Isabela is amazing. My husband lost his wallet right before we got to the resort and they were very helpful in the process. We had dinners in our casita each night as a family which made it extra special....

I had a wonderful stay at Royal Isabela. The resort's location was perfect - right on the cliffs and ocean. The golf course was perfect, but the best part about the stay was the food. The chef was unreal and I think this is the best restaurant in Puerto Rico. The drive from San Juan is easy... this is a...

We've come back 3 years in a row. Love the peaceful and private nature of this resort. The Casitas (bungalows) are luxurious and very private with balcony and plunge pool. Like having a whole resort just to yourself. The location is amazing, sitting on the cliffs above the ocean. Although we're not golfers the golf course is absolutely stunning. There...

The location is near perfect, only a one hour drive from the airport. The resort does not have good signage and it is easy to miss. Check in was pathetic. We had to wait outside the office only to find out the room was not ready, were advised to go to the bar for a while ( not on the...

First I fell in love with my husband then I fell in love with this place. The staff welcomed us by sending a card, cava and sweets to our room... very nice gesture, plus they changed our casita to the one on the most secluded spot of the property (wink, wink)... We are planning to come back and celebrate many...
