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...

I will start by saying that the resort is beautiful, the first glimpse of the ocean, pool and mountains from the lobby is breathtaking. For a large property the Resort does not feel over crowded, and really exudes a sense of serenity. The very few drunk couples one afternoon did not blend, haha. This is not the place to go...

My husband and I visited Garza Blanca a year ago and decided to come back to host our friends and family for a wedding. Garza Blanca is beautiful; the views are breathtaking, the food is excellent, the wait staff is very friendly and helpful. This has become one of our go-to vacation spots. The few complaints that I do have...

My wife and I spent 5 night's there in March 2017. We stayed in a Junior Panoramic suite in Building 4 and it was awesome. The views from the 9th floor were excellent. We watched whales every day and dolphins some days. The room was super nice and very spacious. The food at every restaurant and the poolside was amazing...
