Concierge and tour desk were ok but gave us incorrect info when booking tours. Make sure you check what exact activities kids can and can't do when booking activities. Lucky we were... More

Garza Blanca is a large, modern, high-class resort, but it's important to know what you do and don't get as part of the deal. We stayed for six nights over New Years. PROS: Modern, spacious facilities and a great staff, they are friendly and always running to help. Great English language skills from all. The views from our room (Tower... More

My two sisters and I have stayed at 27 resorts in the caribbean and central America so we have seen almost everything there is to offer out there. Garza Blanca is by far the very best we have ever experienced. We chose it mainly for whale watching and were not disappointed with nine sightings on a wonderful trip with Oceans... More

It will be 5 star as soon as they correct a few things in the Activities/Concierge Area and some minor housekeeping inconsistencies. We have traveled extensively and this truly is a fabulous resort.
