This is a hard review to write because it would take some only very simplemeasures that would make all the difference between an average and an outstanding resort of its caliber and price. The setting is indeed beautiful, the casitas (other than in relatively small ways they are showing their age) are private, romantic and a very special experience with...

Agree with the three star reviewer. Property is stunning and casitas are really lovely. Food was excellent (a bit pricey - $4 for one soft boiled egg!) and staff really nice. However the beach is a challenging hike away and not really apt for swimming as the water is quite rough. And there are certainly inconsistencies in service. E.g. Mini...

I was extremely disappointed by how I was treated at this resort. The service and attitude does not live up to a resort of this supposed caliber and cost. Frankly you are treated much better at a cut rate motel. The attitude of most of the people that work there is lackluster and unfriendly. The person who greeted us at...

We stayed at Royal Isabela for two nights. I am aware that I am the first reviewer giving less than 3 stars for my stay, so it may be that I am just extremely critical.

Any upscale hotel can be a good stay if all goes well, but it's when one is ill that an establishment shows its true quality. Unfortunately, I became sick during my stay, and the staff were very helpful, even offering to make chicken soup for me, which was greatly appreciated. Between my illness and the constant rain during our stay,...

What can we say but "Spectacular"! If golfer's had a heaven, this would be it! The Casita concept is exceptional (#4 is a winner! awesome view and close to the main house, restaurant & bar). No detail was left behind, from the bedroom to the bathroom, private back and let's not forget the private plunge pool which just takes it...

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.
