  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We loved our stay at Garza Blanca PV!! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the food was incredible! This was the best all-inclusive food we've ever had in Mexico and it was such a great deal for the quality of the food. Our room had an incredible view of both the ocean and the mountains and had both a hammock and jacuzzi on the balcony! The staff was really helpful in finding us transportation to our excursions and we loved the complimentary kayakying/snorkeling from the resort! The only thing we didn't love is how we had to take the trolly down to the beach, one restaurant, and the bigger pool. Or, you can walk down some flights of stairs (each option takes about 5-10 minutes) but waiting for the trolly was slightly inconvenient (runs every 15 minutes). However, the trolly was friendly and always available when we needed it, just took a little bit of waiting. Overall, it was an awesome experience at this resort!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Worst hotel we’ve stayed at. There is a road right behind the hotel. So you hear every car and truck that passes by all day and night. There are no activities or nightly shows. With kids, you only have 2 restaurants to choose from. With always the same menu. There are flys and bugs everywhere! One family member got food poisoning from the steakhouse. Spent the last 2 days in the room. Not to mention they didn’t even care! Just cery bad overall!!

    Great place would definitely stay again.

    As a single person I don't feel the service or attentiveness was the same or consistent as couples and families. Didn't get an explanation of facilities or amenities when checking in.

  • 6.0.Good

    Overall: Beautiful, but room service is incredibly slow. getting to beach is slow. To consider coming back the room service needs improvement. Recommendation: Install kitchens in each building that can reduce wait times to 20 min per room. CONS: Room service is def the slowest in all hotels I’ve stayed at in PV and around the world. Have to wait at least two and a half hours for breakfast orders (stayed for three mornings). at least one hour for day time service. Room service food quality is Good, but not very good. First morning waited 2 hours and called to check and order was never put in so had to wait another hour for the breakfast. Have to wait for a trolley to take me from building 4 to the beach, usually a 15 min commute in total (wait for trolley ride). so not a quick walk to the beach. Extended my reservation from one night to two more on Expedia the day before, waited until 12 the next morning to see if front desk would call about whether i still needed to check out. Still packed my luggage and went down to check out only for them to tell me it’s the same room…. all that effort wasted. then next day key cards stopped working. PROS: Beautiful junior suite room always stocked with towels, slippers, everything you need Furniture is beautiful and comfortable Beautiful ocean view, nice sized patio Tub is spacious, relaxing, a beautiful view of the ocean Beach service is attentive and quick.
