Another week in paradise

Our family of 7 visited Garza Blanca in early March. Second time there for 3 of us, and we experienced the same level of excellent service that we had in the past. We were fortunate enough to stay in the penthouse suite in one of the ocean side buildings. The room was spacious and accommodating for our group. My FIL is 77, has a scooter, walks with a cane. Staying oceanside was perfect, he scootered everywhere by the pool/main building. We were able to take a mini van up to the upper buildings when needed, instead of trolley, which was much appreciated. There is some construction, but further up on the hill, by tower 5. While this resort is beautiful and quiet, it is the service that sets it apart. All staff from housekeeping to concierge, are friendly and helpful. Specifically Alejandro and Angel by the poolside and at AquaZul, were very engaging and obliging of our every need, with Angel even arranging a nice beach side dinner for our family. The food at all of the restaurants is very good, with Blanc Blu needing some improvements in speed of food delivery and making sure the food is hot. The views from every restaurant are simply breath taking and watching the sunset every night over the ocean is one of the pure joys in life. If you are looking for night time entertainment though, this is not the place. The resort is pretty quiet by 10pm, which is nice for those who just want to crash at the end of sun and fun filled day. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!

We had such an amazing vacation here!!! When my husband and I decided to take a trip without the kids, I had a few things I wanted..an amazing ocean front room with a hammock that didn’t require me taking a trolley/carry to get to the pool or beach. Delicious food & an infinity pool to soak in the ocean view! We had all of that and much more! The food was not only presented beautifully but everything tasted amazing! We did the all inclusive option & loved the Japanese restaurant and the main restaurant. ( Francisco & his specialty coffees!) We also ate at the steak house which was delicious as well! Beautiful views from every angle! We loved the beach and swam everyday in ocean which had a barrier so it was nice & calm. The beach staff was so attentive, moving chairs & umbrellas to our liking & keeping us hydrated ( delicious martincos) & fed( server Antonio was great!) I miss those shrimp tacos on the beach! I cannot say enough about this resort!! My husband & I will definitely be back, without the kids as I don’t think there would be enough action here for them. Although whales frolicking 30 feet from the beach 3 days in a row was pretty amazing!

We got invited to a time-share presentation and we absolutely fell for it. Everything was absolutely great the day that we were wooed into falling in love with the resort. As a gesture for buying in we got invited to come back and spend a day at the resort and that’s when everything turn to hell. Worse service we have received in a long while not by only 1 person but by several. It totally put a sour note in our vacations. We felt that they got from us want they wanted and now that they had our sign paperwork we didn’t matter. Till this day we are not sure if any action was taken to address our concerns because we did let several people know what had occurred. This resort is beautiful and luxurious but it clientele is going to be treated like they were at a Motel 6 you will lose them in a blink of an eye. Make your own decision but I would have not signed for for this if it were based on our second day experience.

We had an amazing time at the Garza Blanca. The staff was amazing. Accommodating, friendly, super helpful. I couldn't have created a better service experience. The food in the restaurants on property was amazing. Each had delicious food, excellent service, amazing drinks. The service around the pool - also amazing. We sprung for the penthouse suite, which felt luxurious. It came with Butler service. Room service was the only major low point. Don't order it. It's terrible! I ended buying the time share, which I am still surprised by, but I really love the property and I can't wait to see all the other properties. The staff even took us out to dinner at Pipi's, which you must go to in town. Can't wait to go back!

My girlfriends and I spent 4 days at the Garza Blanca at the end of February. We did the all inclusive option and everything was amazing. The staff was wonderful, especially Eduardo, who led us on the hike to the waterfall, and Angel who remembered our drink preferences each day. We loved eating at all the restaurants particularly Boca Dos, the steakhouse. One of the things I loved most about this resort is how much was included. The hike to the waterfall was included. We kayaked to Los Arcos and snorkel and the kayaking plus our guide were included. We even saw a whale in the water! We will definitely be back!
