Fabulous!

Absolutely loved our 5 days at this hotel. It is an impeccable and beautiful luxury hotel that had everything we needed for rest and relaxation. The service was great, rooms flawless and amenities, lovely. The food was also excellent (could get a little more creative with vegetarian and vegan options but they did their best!) Also, the sushi restaurant is worth a special mention. It is extraordinary. As is the spa!! One of the best ever. Will definitely return. Thanks for a fantastic vacation.

Great Resort with Great Service

Everyone was so nice. Food was excelleent. Salvadore who worked with Costco/Expedia etc. who helped us with transportation and helping us find a cab was more than helpful and really made the trip easy.

I was really looking forward to staying at the Garza after reading all of the five star reviews. Unfortunately, my experience and that of my traveling companion fell far short of expectations from check in to checkout. I called the hotel prior to arrival to inquire about the check in time. The front desk checked my room and said 3 pm . I arrived with my parents, who were staying in a nearby hotel. I asked the check in clerk if they could accompany me to my room and enjoy the balcony view for a couple of hours, to which they declined. My parents had to arrange a second ride to return to their hotel. My room was not ready until 4 pm. They did not apologize. I asked if we could get a late check out, to which she asked me when were you thinking, to which I replied when is the time. FInally, she agreed to 1 pm. When my room was finally ready, Jennifer escorted us to our room, even though we did not need an escort. She asked us Why we were only staying one night, Why don't I want the spa services, all Why Why, Why,. When we arrived at our room, she did not inform us of the restaurant or pool hours or provide even a welcome statement. Once in our room, we found there was no free wifi, no blow dryer and in the bathroom, only one small hook on the wall. The room was not that spacious, nor was the balcony. We wanted to shake off the check-in stress by going for a nice swim. The pool area is beautiful, however, the water temperature is that of an overheated geriatric pool. The entire pool is shallow, which makes it awkward to swim laps. We enjoyed our meal at the Blue restaurant. The chef and waiter were exceptional, however, there was a rigid ordering rule, set by the hotel. We could not order dessert until our entire was finished. When we were exiting, we had to swat away the swarms of moths. The mattress was divine, which helped us sleep our hotel cares away. We decided to check out early the next day. There was a coffee carafe in the lobby, but surprise, no coffee. I felt the hotel was neither relaxing nor luxurious and was relieved to have only paid for one night.

The most incredible hotel!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Panoramic Suite, which exceeded all of my expectations for a hotel room. The suite was enormous, with generous sized bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (3 showers plus bathtub, including a steam shower). The hotel was gorgeous and clean, and the service was absolutely outstanding. From check in, where we were greeted with champagne and a nice (if slightly long) overview of the property and activities, to the amenities and room service, we felt pampered and appreciated at every turn. We spent 5 nights at the hotel, and it just wasn't long enough. We didn't have the inclusive plan, but breakfast was included. We had one morning at the upper restaurant (Boca Dos) and then spent the other 4 at Blanca Blue, by the ocean (larger buffet and more choice from the menu). Despite being very full, the resort and restaurants never felt crowded, we never had a problem finding pool chairs, and we were able to take full advantage of the activities like kayaking to Los Arcos to snorkel. Our kids are 9 and 12, and they loved the pools (both the upper and lower pools are infinity style and large enough to hold their interest). There were lots of families with kids around their age or slightly younger. There were also lots of retired couples, who were absolutely delightful to our children (many of them said they wished their own grandkids were with them) and made us feel welcome. Good to know: The 'panoramic' suites are in the upper buildings, and have fabulous views of the ocean. The other suites and rooms are in the buildings along the ocean. I think it would have been nice to be on the beach, but our view was literally breathtaking, and it only took a few minutes to get down to the beach. Other posters have said the trolley was slow, but we never waited for more than 2 minutes, and we used it several times each day. Unless you have difficulty walking, it's a very short stroll down the steps and across the bridge to the main hotel, anyway. Also good to know - kids can't do all of the activities. Must be 12 to kayak with an adult, and I think 14 to paddleboard. Our 9 year old felt a little left out, but had such a blast at the pool that I wouldn't knock the hotel over it. We stayed both here and up in the marina area, and although Garza Blanca is a bit more removed feeling, it really had a Mexican feel....like you were in the jungle, where the marina felt like a suburb.

Pure bliss

My wife and I just got back from 6 days at the Garza Blanca and it was amazing! From the check-in process being greeted with champagne and a cool towel to service all day at the pristine beach, we always felt taken care of to the highest degree. We ate at every restaurant and enjoyed them all, my favorite being the steakhouse. With the all inclusive there are little limitations ( I was never told something wasn't included) which makes it a true all inclusive in my opinion. Lastly, take care of the certain individuals who take care of you. I know tipping is included but they deserve more. Gonzalo at the panoramic pool and beach is an incredible employee and person. Many people went above and beyond and some who won't be tipped like the groundskeepers. Your employees make this resort a true 5 star!
