  • Tennis courts (private lessons available)
  • Nice fitness center with (expensive) yoga, meditation and Pilates classes
  • Exceptional golf course

  • Not near much nightlife or anything else

Bottom Line

The ultra-luxurious St. Regis boasts top-notch amenities, including a gorgeous spa, a huge free-form pool, an outstanding restaurant, and an exceptional golf course. The rooms are large and decorated with care -- exposed wood beams, big modern bathrooms, and large furnished terraces. It's pretty secluded, at the foot of El Yunque National Forest, which is a plus for some and a minus for others. Also, the beach is not the best in the region, but it's still pleasant and not crowded at all.

Oyster Hotel Review


About five minutes north of Rio Grande, close to the only tropical rainforest in the U.S.

Map of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort

The St. Regis is located in a residential area that hosts some other resorts, but it's far enough away from them to feel secluded. While it is right on the ocean, the beach is not as beautiful and sandy as others along the coast.

About 30 minutes from San Juan, Rio Grande presents travelers with a more relaxed, remote locale than its nightlife-filled neighbors. The draws here are El Yunque Rainforest -- one of the area's most popular attractions -- and the gorgeous beaches. This secluded area is known for its pristine, non-crowded shores. There are a few other attractions in the area, like local retail stores and small restaurants, but there are no large shopping centers or chain restaurants.

  • 35-minute drive to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport

  • 20-minute drive to El Yunque National Forest
