Royal Isabela, a hotel and private golf club perched on the breathtaking coastline of northwest Puerto Rico, was named among the “Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the Caribbean” and the “Top 25 Small Hotels in the Caribbean” for 2015 by TripAdvisor.

It was the only Puerto Rico property honored in both categories, which were announced as part of TripAdvisor’s 13th annual Travelers’ Choice awards for hotels. Winners were determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travelers around the globe. The world’s most outstanding properties were identified in several categories, including luxury.

The property was singled out as a “beautiful honeymoon destination” and a “beautiful getaway resort, especially if you love golf.”  Last fall, Royal Isabela was named “Puerto Rico’s Leading Golf Resort” at the World Travel Awards Caribbean and North American Gala.

The pristine property consists of 20 one-bedroom casitas, each with expansive indoor and outdoor space, as well as private plunge pools, ocean views, and easy access to the resort’s many amenities. Headlining those amenities is the golf course, called Golf Links at Royal Isabela, which sprawls across acres of native grasses, natural sand dunes, and craggy cliffs that soar 300 feet above the Caribbean Sea.

The course was designed by the owners of the resort, brothers Charles and Stanley Pasarell, in association with the late David W. Pfaff.

In service, Royal Isabela caters to discerning individuals in search of quiet, exclusivity, outstanding dining, golf and other sporting options, and the ultimate in relaxation in one of the most beautiful corners of the island—and the world.
