Overview

Tons of outdoor facilities, including three pools and two golf courses
Expensive cuisine

Situated between the lush El Yunque National Rainforest and the Atlantic Ocean on Puerto Rico's northeastern coast, this seaside Wyndham resort lures active travelers with its versatile outdoor pursuits. You can play a round of tennis at the Peter Burwash International Courts before teeing off at two championship golf courses. Afterwards, take a dip in one of the property's three swimming pools or treat yourself to a soothing massage at the Mandara Spa. Then unwind in your spacious guest room, where you'll find ornate Italian tiles, natural wooden furnishings and a private balcony. All accommodations also come equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access, Institut Karité Paris toiletries and coffee makers with Puerto Rican coffee. Recent guests loved the well-appointed rooms, as well as the food and service at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar's five restaurants. However, a few past diners said the eateries' dishes are a bit pricey. To save some coin, Wyndham Rewards participants can pay for rooms with accrued points.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

Ideal for families and active vacationers, the Rio Mar sits on a splendid beach in the shadow of El Yunque rainforest. Its championship golf courses curve dramatically through the jungle and along the coast, and it offers ample water sports opportunities, and classic Caribbean experiences, like horseback riding on the beach.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended
