We went to Garza Blanca over Christmas with our family of 12. Our rooms were so absolutely amazing! Fabulous huge rooms with living room and kitchen and a balcony that went around the living and master bedroom. We stayed in the towers. The food was wonderful and the wait staff was amazing! We are actually going back the middle of...

What a wonderful resort. From the service to the food and drinks, and the pools and views, I can't say enough good things about Garza Blanca. It exceeded my expectations. Definitely go with the all-inclusive option. You'll come out close to even if not better. The food at every restaurant was 5 star. Boca Dos Steak (get the filet or...

The Garza staff was great. Always nice and very helpful when needed. The food was excellent. We especially liked the sushi restaurant! Blanca Blue does a great breakfast buffet along with great views of Los Arcos. We stayed in building four (up the hill). We always walked down to the beach via stairs but the trolley is a better option...

We had a one bedroom suite in bldg 2 right on the ocean. Falling asleep to waves every night. Huge balcony. Fully outfitted kitchen (altho we never used it!) The trolley is fun (or you can easily walk up the man) and the views from BocaDos STK and Hirochi are unbeatable. Friendly staff everywhere except at checkin and checkout. Wonderful...

Although Garza Blanca has glowing reviews, and we visited a writer from Tripadvisor who declared GB superior to everywhere else she had seen in Puerto Valalrta, I have mixed feelings about my recent stay. On the positive notes, it is beautiful. We had a junior panoramic suite in Tower Five on the 8th floor. We had a spacious balcony with...

The view was excellent and the room was really nice! What killed it for me was the food! The all inclusive was a waste of money. The food had little to no taste at all. Nothing Mexican about the food.

From the moment you arrive, you know you are going to have a good time. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. The meal plans are very worth it. The food at all the restaurants we tried was spectacular. The views from towers 4 or 5 are just incredible plus, having a hammock at every balcony to enjoy the...

Garza Blanca is a beautiful, top notch resort. The employees are very helpful and friendly. We especially enjoyed our days by the pool being pampered by Angel, Miguel, and Gerardo. The service and smiles were excellent!

Property is very well maintained and the food was very good. My kids loved all the activities and people (both guests and the resort employees) could not have been nicer. We especially liked the hiking in the nearby hills but know that the waterfall hike is not easy and best suited for the adventurous in good shape. The rooms are...
