9.2.Superb.
  • 6.0.Good

    The ocean bay, kayaks and paddle boards are great. I also enjoyed the staff at the beach and the entertainment. The concierge was awful. We were not given a tour when we arrived... then we went to make reservations, but when we arrived for dinners( at nearly empty restaurants) none of the reservations we made were correct. We always wanted reservations earlier but were told they weren’t available. A staff member stole the tip we left for the housekeeper. We had to fill out reports, but no action was taken except the housekeeper asking for the tip and us being told to make sure we give the tip directly to the housekeeper! The poolside staff were hot and cold. One day we sat at the pool all day and the server came to see us 4 times . When we went to the bar we were told our server would come. Other days we had good service. Overall, the resort was nice, but the service left us dissatisfied.

    I already gave a stellar review On Trip Advisor. One thing I did forget to mention is that the basic internet is not good. The premium one is a bit better.

    Garza Blanca is only a ten minute drive from the Romantic Zone activities and restaurants and shopping, yet it feels like a different vacation entirely. The lush jungle surroundings and tropical ocean front oasis pools and beachfront make one feel like you are in a completely different vacation place than Puerto Vallarta. If you rent a car as we did it does not seem far away at all... we popped into town and back to Garza Blanca often to fetch some food or supplies or simply visit or PV favorite spots. This is a great spot... and we will be back.

    Stayed in past so was expecting the same caliber. Instead we were placed in a back room in tower 5 with nonstop daily construction occurring on both sides of our room.

    Spacious rooms, great views and good facilities. Staff are friendly and helpful. The beach is small but still really nice. Really enjoyed the free kayaks, SUPs and snorkeling gear. Only complaint is how noisy it is at all times. The building we stayed in is right across a main road and above one of the hotel restaurants so not exactly serene.
