Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the reviews that this is not a 5 star resort as I expected. But you are paying as if it was. First when we arrived and received by valet parking but not escorted to the check in office which I had to ask were it was , After reviewing and correcting a...

The quiet, non rush atmosphere was welcome after a very busy work life. The villas were stunning and the staff impeccable in their service delivery. I wish the stay could have been longer to further explore the area and enjoy a round of golf and a swim at the beach. Thank you for pampering us.

Beautiful resort with breathtaking views. Casitas are clean and have everything you need to relax. Restaurant is fantastic but is best to have a car you try other options too. Staff were very kind and helpful. We will definitely go back again!

Very nice. Need better training for room service staff and front desk staff to make it a 5 star hotel. A new fitness room with a view and an infinity pool could make this boutique hotel a world class spot worthy of the high rates. Food quality is very good. Rooms are great. Dining room needs remodeling. Room service and...

We stayed at the Royal Isabela exactly a year ago and we had a great experience. It is a very expensive place in a location where nothing is expensive. Part of the reason is because there are only 20 little houses or "casitas" in the property and the whole thing is surrounded by the most spectacular tropical vegetation and a...

The villas at this resort are outstanding. The ambiance was fantastic. The wood made the rooms warm and inviting. It had one of the largest showers I have ever seen in a hotel/resort. It had three shower heads, two on the side walls and a rain head in the center of the ceiling, and double doors that opened to the...

The Hotel Villas are outstanding. They are made of precious woods which gives them a beautiful smell and incomparable sense of luxury. The bathrooms are huge and the showers, (yes, three showers and one that rains from the ceiling!) have two doors that open up to your personal jakuzi that, because of the vegetation, provide a completely private experience like...

Royal Isabela is one of the most charming places we have visited. The staff is so professional & can almost guess your every need. After only staying there for 3 days, they felt like family.The grounds were exquisite. Our room had an ocean view from our bed! Rooms were quite comfortable and large. The golf course was very challenging but...

Beautiful property and great service. The casita was wonderful with great views of the ocean. Very clean. It was nice having the splash pool at our disposal. Golf course is as pretty as Pebble Beach; spectacular views.

Beautiful landscape, corteous personnel and excellent service. The perfect retreat to connect with nature. The "casitas" were the most beautiful place to relax in a private setting. Looking forward to come back again
