    Gorgeous resort, 5 star accommodations, just shy of 5 star experience

    Usually stay in old town but wanted a more resort like experience this trip. Was not disappointed by the Garza Blanca. Incredible property, right on the beach, lush and tropical, beautiful water and pools. Huge suites with beach views. Only 10 minutes to old town by cab which were always available day and night and only 7.50US. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing tropical getaway. Pros: Incredible property, views, pools, private beach. Huge very nicely done suites. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. Only 10 minutes from old town. Things that could be improved or things to know: Lack of 24 hour room service. Everything on the property closes at 11 which since its far away from town isn’t great- would have loved a limited menu or some options available 24 hours. Food was OK, not bad but not great. I was expecting a little more given how great everything else at the property was. Lastly, it is a bit away from everything but only 10 minutes to town by cab. But if your used to staying in town and walking to stores, shops, off property restaurants you’ll have to take a cab to get anywhere.

    This was our second time to Garza Blanca, and once again they hit it out of the ballpark. Luxury, excellent dining, and top notch service. Orlando checked us in and made every effort to make us comfortable and accommodate every need. We stayed on the beach in tower 3, and as usual the room was magnificent. The only small complaint was the beach. Last visit the sand was wonderful, and there were hardly any rocks. This visit, there were a lot more rocks, so definitely bring aquatic footwear. Dining was exquisite. We had breakfast brought to our room and served on our balcony, overlooking the ocean. We hung out on the beach and lived off of shrimp nachos during the day! We ate dinner at the steak house and Japanese restaurant. At Hiroshi, Abraham was our server and exceeded our expectations. One evening we ate dinner in town at El Palomar. That dining experience was absolutely wonderful too. Although many people were at the resort, it never felt crowded, rather private and exclusive. This property is absolute paradise, don’t hesitate to book!

    Beautiful resort, great suites, really great service, very welcoming staff. Good value in restaurants. Very easy to get into town, about 12 minutes to the Malecon. Best to use Uber, never waited more than 2 minutes.

    Absolute Paradise

    First, I highly recommend the tower 4 ultra suites. The 2 bedroom with adjoining suite is absolutely amazing for a couples trip. We loved the living/kitchen space and the views from the wraparound balcony were breathtaking! Orlando did our check-in and was super helpful. The food was excellent at all of the restaurants and staff was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend making reservations. Angelo was very helpful with our transportations and getting us anything we needed. The trolley can take a bit on busy days, but we always found nice conversation with the staff and other guests. Our housekeeper, Amy, was so kind and even brought up extra beers when we decided to stay in one evening. Our favorite staff member was Lalo. He was our pool concierge one day and went on the guided hike the next. The hike was adventurous and I would only recommend for fit people. But the waterfall at the end was worth it! Lalo, we hope you get a raise for all you had to put up with this weekend, lol. Those girls at the pool were so demanding and you took it in stride with a smile and a thanks. The only change I would make at this resort is the music. The mellow music at the pool got a bit boring. Over all, this is one of those resorts that we'd like to visit again. We loved the town of PV and felt very safe as we traveled the streets. This is one for the memory books!
