Garza Blanca is an amazing property. My husband and I flew down from LA for a few days and even though the ratings seemed great, we weren't sure what to expect. From the moment we got out of the car until the moment we left, we had an incredible experience. The staff are top notch - friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our hotel room was spectacular with a bottle of champage on ice, a huge balcony with ocean and mountain views, sparkling clean, cold A/C and well appointed. Plenty of towels, drinks in the mini bar, toiletries and a wonderful hammock. We spent lots of time at the pools and ate many amazing meals at the property's hotels. Hiroshi was our favorite (ask to sit in Miguel's section) but all of the food we had was fresh, well prepared and beautifully presented. We kayaked and snorkeled to Los Arcos National Park with Cesar - great trip! The security was tight but not intrusive and every single staff person wore a mask. And, finally, no one pressured us for any type of sale presentation ever. I would highly recommend this property for every type of traveller.

We loved our stay at Garza Blanca PV!! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the food was incredible! This was the best all-inclusive food we've ever had in Mexico and it was such a great deal for the quality of the food. Our room had an incredible view of both the ocean and the mountains and had both a hammock and jacuzzi on the balcony! The staff was really helpful in finding us transportation to our excursions and we loved the complimentary kayakying/snorkeling from the resort! The only thing we didn't love is how we had to take the trolly down to the beach, one restaurant, and the bigger pool. Or, you can walk down some flights of stairs (each option takes about 5-10 minutes) but waiting for the trolly was slightly inconvenient (runs every 15 minutes). However, the trolly was friendly and always available when we needed it, just took a little bit of waiting. Overall, it was an awesome experience at this resort!

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Worst hotel we’ve stayed at. There is a road right behind the hotel. So you hear every car and truck that passes by all day and night. There are no activities or nightly shows. With kids, you only have 2 restaurants to choose from. With always the same menu. There are flys and bugs everywhere! One family member got food poisoning from the steakhouse. Spent the last 2 days in the room. Not to mention they didn’t even care! Just cery bad overall!!
