We came to San Blas for birdwatching, and chose this hotel based on recommendations. We were certainly not disappointed! For us, it was just perfect. Although there is a derelict hotel next door, and an empty lot opposite, the family owned and run hotel with its beautiful grounds is a delightful oasis. There is a small chapel in the well-kept...

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The restaurant had great food. Our stay was a week and we never tired of the selection. The hotel had the best wifi that I have ever experienced a a hotel. We celebrated our anniversary there and the Deana brought our a special dessert for us.

The people speak English and food is absolutely amazing. Don't miss the taco stand that is just down the road from Garza. Award winning restaurant is expensive but very good. Hotel rooms are on the nice side of average but among the best you can get in that town. For birders, the Hotel staff can fix you up with local... More

Many of the staff speak English, so for us mono-lingual folks, it was great. Josephina was outstanding in helping us arrange interesting tours. The jungle boat tour was the highlight of the trip. She arranged everything. The rest of the staff was also very helpful. Whenever you go to Mexico, take your own wash cloth. They didn't provide those in... More

The rooms are small and uninspired, but the ambience is just perfect in this family-run enterprise.To discover Iron Chef contestant and Culinary Ambassador Chef Betty Vasquez personally supervising every detail at their El Delfin Restaurant is such an unexpected bonus. The food is simply spectacular. My family and I have been assiduous patrons for 30 years and hope to continue... More

It's a picturesque, quiet and charming hotel right in the middle of San Blas that has a nice staff. It's well known for its restaurant, unfortunattely we didn't get to have our breakfast there because it was all reserved for diplomatic guests, but dinner was good enough, though a little expensive for my taste.

We chose this hotel to eat at their famous restaurant. Imagine on my arrival to find out the chef was not there and we were the ONLY guests in the whole hotel. From the moment we arrived it was clear the rude and miserable owners did not want us there as I believe they had to employ a full range... More

This is a charming little hotel (45 rooms) in the little town of San Blas. It is the #1 choice of birders and bird tours. The rooms are simple. There is a nice pool, a nice garden area, a ping pong table, & a palapa. The restaurant is very good (open 8-10 a.m. for breakfast then re-opens at 1 p.m.).... More

When the room service staff are standing at attention, all in a row on your arrival, you know there has to be something special about the hotel. This is truly a family run business. The matron, a lovely 80+ woman often sat in the lobby communicating with her daughter, the front-desk manager. The lobby is spacious and comfortable.The hotel lobby... More

We wanted to see more than just puerto Vallarta this trip so drove to Nyarit area. We booked for the Garza Canale and while approaching the hotel found the surrounding area less than appealing with the garbage strewn everywhere. Once inside the grounds it was meticulous. Every part of this hotel is cared for and the entire staff is attentive... More
