My husband and I stayed at Garza for our anniversary and 40th birthday celebrations. We've had the privilege of staying at some really great hotels and resorts, and seriously this was one of the best. My husband's a cynic, but within 52 seconds of entering our suite and seeing that incredible view, he was like, "Ok, Babe, you did good!"... More

This was our first experience at Garza Blanca. The food, drinks, activities, and pools made the adults and 2 kids (10 and 14) very happy. We took part in the advanced hike to the waterfall! Watching our son jump off the rocks into the cool water was awesome! Ivan, our hike leader and all around hard worker, made sure the... More

We have been at this hotel a few times. Each time the quality and experience dropped a few notches but overall still a great hotel. Its about a 40-45minute drive from the airport. You can use Costcotravel or negotiate with the hotel to include transfers. The hotel has two sides, the ocean front where the main lobby is located and... More

This isn't a love story with one another, it's a love story with Garza Blanca. We already were booked with another hotel when we arrived in Puerta Vallarta, but we were suckered into trying out Garza Blanca the minute we stepped foot in the airport. Once we got to our hotel we went back and forth whether or not we... More

Definitely go for the all-inclusive option. It's worth it unlike other all-inclusives that give you cheap booze. Not this place! Very quiet resort. Dinner at the restaurant was also a treat; amazing chocolate dessert.

We were recently fortunate to be quests at Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort & Spa. Our stay was a magical, albeit short, one. Our room was scrupulously clean and all the extra touches of slippers, robes, and a make-up mirror were certainly appreciated. The location was jaw-droppingly beautiful.

Garza Blanca is one of the best resorts in the world. I can guarantee it since I've been all around the globe because of my busy lifestyle. If you're looking for a relaxation near the beach and the jungles, please don't look any further but book Garza Blanca! Employees are knowledgeable and lovely, too.
