Fodor's Expert Review Royal Isabela

396 Ave. Noel Estrada, Isabela, n/a Puerto Rico, 00662, Puerto Rico Fodor's Choice

One of the area's newest luxury properties, this 2,200-acre paradise is a must for anyone remotely interested in golf. A decade in the making, the grounds feature a 27-hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools, a fitness center, a gourmet restaurant, heliport and a beauty salon. Each 1,500-square-foot casita comes with a private plunge pool and "shower room" the size of a walk-in closet. Meandering through the lush setting are pathways that spill onto the resort's private beach. The on-site restaurant is one of the best on the island, where chefs use organic fruits and vegetables plucked directly from the on-site garden and seafood fished off the Isabela coast. Those staying at the casitas have access to the ocean-view golf course; nonmembers can play by invitation only.
