The nicest room with the best view I have ever had at a beach resort! 1500 square feet with a wrap around balcony that went from the green jungle mountains to the ocean and completely over the bay. There were activities each day, a great gym with similar views, heated pools and many hot tubs. The food was exceptional and...

We were sorry to see the beach was 1/3 smaller than 2 years ago. It is very difficult to fight Mother Nature. We still enjoyed both the remaining beach and pools. We played tennis and hiked enjoying the many acres of this preserve. As before the staff & food were excellent. Our favorite is the STK steak house in the...

My mother and I returned two days ago from Garza Blanca. It was her first time in PV, my second. Garza Blanca is a gorgeous property. Its lobby area is less attractive than some resorts I have been on, but there is little reason to hang out in the lobby with so many other places to spend time. The two...

Got great recommendations! Taxi fares are government regulated--360 pesos from airport to Garza Blanca, with paying in pesos better than in US dollars. The resort promotes their transportation for around US$100, & the concierge states they're unaware of the taxi rate. We're going to take a cab--have always done great with public transportation in PV! For 2 taxi is the...

This hotel was amazing, however, the service at the restaurants were very slow, we were baffled by the fact that when we went to the restaurants they told us we had to have reservations, but the place was empty, we were told they had 150 people coming in to eat, so we ate at the bar, we were there all...

Isn't it really the staff that can make or break a stay like this? I really noticed the attention to detail here at Garza. The greeting with hand to heart whenever they encountered a guest. The exceptional service at the restaurants. Pulling my chair out, laying a napkin in my lap. Sparkling or plain water sometimes with choice of fruit...

I travelled here with my husband and 8 year old daughter and it had everything we could have wanted for a relaxing holiday.

First rate in every way. I have returned six times. The all inclusive package, booked in advance is good value. The Japanese Restaurant, Hiroshi, is exceptional. (This is added to satisfy the requirement that I write 200 words.)
