By Brian Weis

The travelers have spoken, and they've said wonderful things about Royal Isabela, the world-class golf and private membership club perched on the breathtaking coastline of northwest Puerto Rico.

For the third consecutive year, Royal Isabela was named among the "Top 25 Small Hotels in the Caribbean" by TripAdvisor. Significantly, it was the only Puerto Rico property recognized in that category for 2016.

The honor is part of TripAdvisor's 14th annual Travelers' Choice awards for hotels, with winners 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.

Twenty artistically designed one-bedroom casitas, each with expansive indoor and outdoor space, as well as private plunge pools, ocean views, fresh sea air, and easy access to the resort's many amenities, are the hallmark of Royal Isabela's offerings. Headlining those amenities is Golf Links at Royal Isabela, a magnificent beauty that sprawls across acres of native grasses, natural sand dunes, and craggy cliffs that soar 200 feet above the Caribbean Sea and catch refreshing ocean breezes. 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.
