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...

We were relaxing almost immediately in this beautiful part of the Puerto Rican-Atlantic Ocean coastline. Peaceful and serene. Numerous variety of birds and awesome vistas. Golf was exceptional. Alex my caddie was extremely helpful. Definitely worth having a caddie. Last few holes felt like you were in heaven looking down at the Atlantic Ocean. Course condition is what you would...

They offered us first class service there from the attention at check-in , the...

My wife and I spent a weekend at this exceptional resort. The casitas are very comfortable and private with a spectacular view. The walk to the beach is via stairs, but I found it well worth it. The golf course is a challenging championship course with the wind always a factor. The caddy I had (John) was very helpful and...

Isabela is a stunning location for a golf course, just take a look at the website, it's better in reality, the 17th hole par 3 is a picture in itself, one of the prettiest and most breathtaking holes I've played.
