I visited the Garza Blanca twice last year. My only small complaint from my previous visits was that the service was a bit inconsistent. It wasn't a huge issue and didn't keep me from returning. It was all clicking on this last visit. The hotel is still amazing, great pools, great beach, and the service was off the charts amazing....

Oswaldo and the crew working pool-side provide amazing service near the 4th tower -- whatever you need, they are right there, ready. Beautiful view, great pool, and yet so close to the room. It was easy to get chairs and fast lunch service. Thanks so much Oswaldo! Hope to see you again soon!
