Amazing resort , staff and views
Joint R,

We absolutely loved our stay! The sunsets are spectacular and I’ve never been so genuinely greeted and treated by hotel staff in all my years of vacation experiences! I appreciate the detail in decorating and rock placement. ( and all the details that went in to designing this amazing resort!!)Even the cleaning supplies used here smell fresh rather than fragrancy! Thank you thank you to the entire group of personnel that made this the great experience it was! We will continue to tell our loved ones and recommend you! ( sure note, my husband got very sick, not sure why but that was the only poor experience. Also we recommend the Uber service locally for trips to town! What a great place to stay!!!!

Amazing

This was our 5th visit to PV and our first to the south of DT. Total different experience with the jungle views. Garza is an amazing resort. The look, feel are seriously beautiful. The staff was very kind throughout, the way you are greeted by each one really sticks out. We stayed at an upper tower which we really enjoyed having the upper pool option and main pool. Had we stayed in a lower tower we may not have come up. Our room view and feel was also spectacular the view from the shower and yes even the toilet is memorable. Getting around was super easy the bus stop was right out from of the resort and only 10 minutes downtown. $8 pesos per person, Uber downtown was $75 pesos and a taxi was $150. One minor do better was the main restaurant was closed one morning and they moved to a large room at opening they weren’t really ready we had a tour that day so that was a little disappointing. Overall we would gladly return!

BAD EXPERIENCE AFTER GETTING SICK

My family and I stayed at The Garza Blanca Preserve for six days in August 2018. Our vacation started off fantastic we had the VIP service so pick-up and Drop off at the airport was seamless. The food was delicious and service of staff was attentive. We did encounter an ant problem on day three that was handled. We had the two bedroom panoramic suite amazing views etc. my only and most important complaint is that on our last day there my husband started to feel sick in the middle of the night suffering from nausea and just miserable. I traveled with plenty of otc meds so pepto was in the bag it seemed to help a little, but he was not himself. We flew back home and less than 24hrs later he developed a severe case of vomiting and diarrhea. it was very scary to see my husband weak and dehydrated as he was not able to keep food or liquids in his system for over a week as well. This is a person who rarely gets ill and have no underlying health issues. After several trips to see Dr's and a ride to the hospital in an ambulance close to a week after we returned he was not getting any better he was finally diagnosed with having (CRYPTOSPORIDIUM) Which can be contacted either from contaminated water or food. We tried to figure out how he could have contracted it since no one else in our group got sick. First thing that came to mind (1) He was the only one that went swimming in the pool. (2) He was the only one that ate duck and steak while we were there. He became so sick and had to go to the hospital so many times the Department of Health contacted him about this illness. Here is the my issue I reached out to management telling them all of the above. The General manager responded with information on how the pool was tested and cleaned blah blah blah taking no responsibility, or accountability but insisted he did not get sick there. Well that is the only place we dined at we visited no other resorts while in PV to have access to another pool. We spent a lot of money to enjoy a beautiful vacation this incident however left a vary bad impression. Especially the response from management the unwillingness to help or to try to make things right with a little compensation was out of the question once they have your money after check out they do not care about their guests after that so just BEWARE. You will have great views, good tasting food, as well as attentive staff BUT Should you return home deathly ill from contacting anything on their premises no one will care.

Bed bug nightmare.

This was our second trip in one year to this Resort. our first trip went smoothly and really didn't have any complaints. We came back in April of 2018 for a week stay. Everything that could go wrong went wrong starting with our check-in. Even though what we prepaid the trip they had no reservation listed we had a sit for an hour and a half until we got a room. Couple days later I woke up in my whole legs and arms was covered with bed bugs bites which was an unbearable and major embarrassment. The fact is I didn't even want to go to the pool area. I Was Bitten up so bad. I contacted the front desk ask for the manager to meet me and all I got was a assistant manager who tried their best to accommodate us. They even changed the mattress, but that was too late. When I contacted the resort they totally ignored me. I even had referred several guests to the resort. My suggestion is very cautious and check your bed and the furniture before accepting your room. Fyi, I had written two emails to the corporate office and never heard back from them. Do yourself a favor, don't fall for there timeshare tour, you will wast your value time.

5 star hands down

If you’re looking for a nice, calm place for a family vacation... this is it. The food is great, pools are awesome and service is on point. We opted for a two bedroom panoramic suite and it was almost too amazing to leave the room. The all-inclusive option let’s you order at all the restaurants and room service. I would highly recommend reservations early because it was too late for us to get reservations at the Japanese restaurant. This is adults only at the other hotel.
