Golf, spa treatments, a casino and even a private island in a soothing Puerto Rican setting.
This resort --- poised on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic and Caribbean --- is so massive it has another resort community inside of it. It also has 984 guest rooms, suites and villas (up to three bedrooms); a championship golf course; Casablanca-themed casino; and even its own 100-acre private island complete with windsurfing, horseback riding, scuba diving, fishing, strategically-placed hammocks and beach waiters. Moorish and Spanish Colonial-inspired architecture, cobblestone, plazas and fountains give the resort a romantic ambience. Yet it still appeals to business crowds with 70,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, catering services, tech support and more. Accommodations are spacious, the smallest measuring 500 square feet, and all come with high-speed Internet access. At the Waldorf Astoria Spa, treatments incorporate local herbs and plants; along with 25 private treatment rooms, it has men's and women's sections with Eucalpytus-scented steam rooms and whirlpools. Seven pools include a kiddie area and swim-up bar, and 23 food and beverage outlets promise flavors for every appetite: Blossoms (Pan-Asian), Las Brisas (island specialties), the signature Chops Steakhouse and La Piccola Fontana (Italian) are just a few of the many venues. For specialty cocktails and al fresco dining, head for Ballyhoo Bar & Grill.
