The Pasarell brothers wanted to bring their love of Puerto Rican culture and hospitality to Royal Isabela. The Royal Isabela is one of the top golf courses in the Caribbean and was named in honor of Queen Isabella of Castile, Spain. There are 20 intimate casitas with 1,500 square feet of living space, a private pool, and view of the ocean.
