From the moment we entered, we were greeted with an amazing staff. This carried out throughout the entire trip. From Bell Boys to waiters, to housekeeping, everyone seemed sincerely happy to help us. From Daniel the bartender at Blanca Blue to Jesus, the concierge who checked us out; they went out of their way to make our stay better than we could have imagined. The infinitie pools were pristine and well heated, the ocean water was turquoise. We did all inclusive and mentally, it was nice not worrying about ordering another cocktail at the pool or orange juice at breakfast. We skipped the time share meeting that they really want you to attend, but there were no repercussions due to this. We went on an advanced 2 1/2 hour hike with an awesome tour guide, Tito that ended with a plunge in the amazing waterfall. The food was delicious but what really set this place apart from other places was the service.

Stayed in Garza Blanca for one week from the 10th February 2018. Second year running. Garza is a very professionally run, well organised hotel with really good restaurants. Exceptional food especially the Japanese restaurant Hiroshi and the lobby restaurant Blanca Blue. The staff in Garza are all very professional, friendly and attentive to customer needs. Nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the junior panorama suite and it had lovely views from tower 4 . It is across the road from the reception and main lobby., and there is a trolly bus that transports you there from the main lobby or you can walk it. It was quite hot when we're were staying so I chose the lazy option. The previous year we stayed in the one bedroomed suites overlooking the sea. Both lovely suites but personally my preference was to stay at the resort level hearing the sea waves and the convenience of being closer to reception and lower pool and beach. That said the upper pool is lovely and a bit quieter and therefore it both has its merits and comes down to a personal preference.. The staff were all so attentive and natural. A special mention needs to be made about Lizbeth and Emanuel on front desk who really went out of there way to help us with check in, changing rooms due to us wanting to be on a higher floor in tower 4, in order to get a better view of the sea and surroundings. We were there on bed and breakfast. Breakfast ends at 12 midday so as we are late risers we ate at 11-30 most days and had brunch instead of breakfast. Great variety of a la carte menus, and really nice quality food and presentation. We chose to pay for all inclusive for 3 out of our 7 days there. We do not usually like all inclusive but in Gar Zara Blanca you can book any of the restaurants which are all lovely and the drinks are good high quality brands so it is worth the extra in our opinion, even for a a few days. We traveled into i zona romantica in the old town , most days and it is easy. You can buy wine and supplies there and then have dropped ins onyour terrace/ balcony rather than order room service. There is a bus stop directly opposite the hotel and it is 8 pesos to get into town. Alternatively it is150 pesos to call a taxi, and it is a short ride about 10- 15 mins. Easy ride and no problems. All in all, Garza Blanca is one of the best hotels in PV. There are other upmarket establishments but in my opinion not as complete and able to offer what Garza Blanca delivers. It can definitely be described as a quality 5 star hotel.

My wife and I are currently at Garza Blanca (in fact, I’m writing this from our poolside chairs). We head home to Minneapolis in a couple days, but this has been an amazing trip! We first visited Garza Blanca for the first time four years ago and are always blown away by the beautiful property, rooms, the amazing food, drinks and friendly, attentive service by literally everyone in the resort. Each day at the pool, we experienced unmatched, friendly service from Salvador, Juan, Moises and Carlos. We truly made friends with each of them and they are all so genuine and you can tell they truly enjoy their jobs. We also appreciated our bartender, “Sexy Daniel, in Blanca Blue and his amazing Sexy Martini that we named him after. We can’t say enough about our experience at Garza Blanca. Truly great memories that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives! If you’re looking for the ultimate chill vacation in a beautiful resort where you are literally pampered by everyone you meet, this is the place for you. We will be back again, for sure. Look for us poolside and we’ll share a drink with you! Cheers! Eric and Leslie Shaffer Maple Grove, MN

We are finishing off a five night getaway in a two bedroom mountain panoramic suite. There are three full baths, two gorgeous bedrooms and a wrap around balcony with spectacular views. The living area is gorgeous with panoramic views. There are two infinity pools, one mountainside and the other beachfront. They are also exceptional with outstanding poolside service. The staff is accommodating and, without exception, very gracious. The food is very good in all the restaurants. The gym and spa are spacious with first class equipment and amenities. This property is as beautiful as anywhere we have stayed, and more beautiful than most. Say what you will about the Four Seasons or the Ritz Carlton. This property and the service are as good as, if not better than, any that we have stayed at.

Insta: lltravelmel If you can find my review from January 2016, read it and see all the improvements they made! I believe they corrected all of my concerns :), way to go! My only suggestions this time around: 1. For the Concierges' and the Front Desk Staff to be as vibrant as the servers and activities employees are. Maybe it's because they are hoping for tips, but they are so happy, kind, and willing to help with anything. The Concierge and Front Desk are little more blasé. 2. Blanca Blu rarely answered their phone so we couldn't make reservations via the phone. 3. It may be time to update some of the furniture in the panoramic suites, the little couch/bench are becoming dated! Some quick positive notes: Location: amazing, half in the mountains half on the beach Service: mentioned above Food: good quality and tasty at all the restaurants (and the pool food has improved from 2 years ago) Housekeeping: consistent, clean, very good and we LOVE the little extras at night Activities: These are great, maybe do a survey to your former customers and see what new ones you could add (give options) Pools: all fantastic, all clean, all bueno Gift: the gifts for our anniversary were an awesome touch and soooo appreciated!
