We recently returned from two wonderful weeks at the Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort and Spa, and this trip, which is our 5th, would rate as probably the best. We are members and have a one bedroom beachfront where we stayed on the 5th floor. The view as always is beautiful and the room amenities more than suit our needs. We...

They spent a lot of time going over the hotel info etc in broken English. After all this and a speal on discount cards/timeshare etc we get to the room with Bellman and the...

We did not really know what to expect when we booked this resort. We were so happy with our beautiful, spacious room (junior suite) in Bldg. 4 that overlooked the Pacific Ocean. The bathroom was huge and the bathtub had a plate glass window overlooking the ocean. My only complaint about the tub was that it was surrounded by decorative...

Gorgeous hotel grounds - jungle & beach. Impeccable service. Large properties w/ 6 hotel buildings. Recommend staying in bldgs 4 or 5, or at the Mousai, which is the 5-star, adults-only hotel on the grounds). There are trails to walk the grounds or a trolley. 5-6 restaurants - all were good ... especially the Peruvian ceviche at the poolside restaurant....

I was prepared to give a glowing review to this resort but today as I checked my bank account I found that they charged my incidentals as $ when the Bill was presented in pesos. This seems like something that should NEVER happen but then again we also had to wait three hours for our room to be ready. The...

I've been vacationing at Garza Blanca since 2012. I was just there in late fall 2016, and I will be returning in April. This will be my 15th time visiting! And there's a reason we continue to make this our number one vacation spot- it's PERFECTION. The facilities are beautifully maintained. The beach has been improved following the tropical storm...

I had an amazing time here. With all inclusive amazing service. The staff was equally amazing, and the Chef we had for our one night in was simply fantastic. It was right along the beach so that makes for easy access. The staff really helped my sister and I to find a way to wiggle some "local" time in by...

Wow. Muy fantastico. Heaven. Spent 7 nights in a Honeymoon Suite with an all-inclusive plan on the 6th floor in the 3rd building and would do it all over again. GB does not skimp on the details in their service, food quality, landscape, or building designs. Lovely on all accounts. The best of the best. A word to describe our...

It's a short flight from John Wayne Airport to PV, so that is a plus. However, when you arrive at the PV airport you get absolutely HOUNDED by the time share people right before you go outside. It is very important to keep walking! Don't let them tell you they are with whoever you are looking for. The people you...
