My two twenties-something daughters and I fell in love with Garza Blanca and were ready to stay forever! We enjoyed a two-bedroom suite on the 5th floor of the 3rd (and last) building which was incredibly comfortable (although duvets would have helped at night). We grocery shopped for our breakfasts which helped us appreciate the well-outfitted kitchen (stainless Kitchenaid appliances). The washer/dryer were also a blessing.
And don't listen to any bad comments regarding their restaurant Blanca Blue - our supper there was the best we had anywhere in PV and plentiful too. Try the boneless short rib - to die for!.
The State Governor was at GB for 2 days which, I think, says a lot about the quality of security, service and all around grace of the place.
We had the good fortune to see whales many, many days frolicking off our beach. The beach, by the way, is not private but is relatively quiet given the distance from PV (a 100 peso taxi trip to the Malecon).
Our day trip to Sayulita (a surfer's town) was a trip highlight and well worth the trouble of getting there - I recommend it!
Go to Garza Blanca before all the development (condos, restaurants, shopping mall) is completed and the prices skyrocket. You'll fall in love with it too.
