Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rio Golf and Beach Resort is a full-service hospitality venue with casino, spa, two 18-hole golf courses, and breathtaking oceanside location on the northeast coast. Golfers can enjoy the acclaimed property for $199 plus tax this season. The package includes one-night accommodations, unlimited golf on the River Course (Greg Norman design) or Ocean Course (Tom and George Fazio), and daily buffet breakfast for two at Marbella Restaurant, among other things.
On the northwest tip of the Island lies Royal Isabela, the luxury boutique enclave with its dramatic Links Course perched 200 feet above the sea on undulating cliffs. It has unveiled two October packages. The “Weekday Discovery Package” includes two nights and three days for $549 while staying in Royal Isabela’s exquisite Casitas, which exude peaceful, luxurious splendor.
