RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (September 24, 2008) – Helping families enjoy savings and still take a much deserved family vacation, Rio Mar Beach Golf Resort, Casino & Spa, a Wyndham Grand Resort, is offering guests the perfect budget-friendly getaway this season. From now until December 23, rates start at $149 a night, a 70% discount from peak season prices. Guests also save by not having to purchase a passport, a requirement for many other Caribbean destinations This rate, which may not be combined with other offers or promotions, is based on a single room at double occupancy and is subject to availability. Groups are excluded. Only new bookings qualify and reservations are subject to a seven-day cancellation policy. Reminiscent of a Spanish plantation home, the resort features 600 guest rooms, including 72 suites, all with private balconies overlooking the flora and fauna of the only rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System or the azure waters of its bronzed sand beach, providing an authentic Puerto Rican experience.


Guests of Wyndham Rio Mar have access to one of only seven bioluminescent bays in the world, where nighttime kayaking through a path of mangroves leads guests to a secluded bay in which motion on the water creates a “pixie dust” glow. ATV excursions in the depths of El Yunque take explorers through lush foliage and canopied paths accented with the whistle of the ubiquitous el coquí tree frog, ending with a picnic or refreshing swim under a cascading waterfall. Golfers challenge their swings on one of two championship golf courses at the resort, with an unexpected audience of resident iguanas.


After a day of fun-in-the-sun or pampering pleasures, guests may retreat to one of 11 restaurants, lounges and entertainment venues. From authentic Puerto Rican dishes and hand-rolled sushi, to AAA Four Diamond northern Italian and traditional family fare, the resort offers a variety of dining options.


Rio Mar Beach Golf Resort, Casino & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Resort is situated on a 500-acre hideaway and features 48,000 square feet of function space, including the Caribbean’s largest ballroom; a 7,000-square-foot casino; two world-class, 18-hole golf courses designed by Tom and George Fazio and Greg Norman; a 7,000-square-foot spa and fitness center; international tennis center; water sports and dive center; and two beachfront pools.
