Royal Isabela, the world-class golf and private membership club on the cliffs of northwest Puerto Rico was recently named the “best resort in Puerto Rico” by Islands magazine. A few weeks ago, it won the World Travel Award as “Puerto Rico’s Leading Golf Resort” and was nominated as the islands “leading boutique hotel.” And it has received numerous accolades for its mesmerizing golf course that plays on top of cliffs 300 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.
A wild array of nuances make Royal Isabela feel more like an adventure than a round of golf. Conventional rules of golf architecture don’t always apply. There’s an amazing number of 132 total tees, blind shots galore, a tiny island-green par 3, deep pot bunkers and even two extra holes. Taking caddies is a must just to head in the right direction.
