    Wow, words cannot describe how amazing and magical our stay was at the Garza Blanca resort! The customer service is impeccable and they accommodated all of our needs. When we arrived we were greeted with a drink of our choice and our personal Concierge Yesenia walked us through the details of our stay and went above and beyond to make sure we had all of our reservations. She kept in touch with us throughout our stay and even brought us fresh mangos from her garden. We did decide to attend the residence tour in which we were met by Raul who joined us for breakfast and gave us great conversation and a rundown of all the properties offered to their VIP members. We never felt any pressure to join, it didn't take a lot of time, and it was so nice meeting a new friend. Plus we received a discounted rate at the spa which was incredible. The attention to detail at the spa is the best I've experienced. We did have an issue with the noise from the room next to us as they were having some family drama but the front desk upgraded us to an even better room with a view that blew our mind! The food and drinks were great! The resort grounds are gorgeous with a mix of rainforest and beach. They offer morning hikes and water gear. We loved seeing that there were so many fish and we didn't even have have to leave the resort! They also gave us a COVID test before returning home. Thank you Garza Blanca for everything and making us feel like part of the family! We'll be visiting again soon!

    The property is well kept 5 star hotel, the service is impeccable from when you get in until you leave. they cleaned my room 2 to 3 times A-day. The food is excellent from the sushi bar to the steakhouse to the Mexican food restaurant at the bottom of the main pool. Anything I ask for they delivered . The only thing I can ask for people to do is to TIP these people, they work harder than the people in the States. For people just to not Tip them is being very cheap. Most of them earn only $400 a month so when you tip them $2 to$3 that means a lot to them and more people need to start doing that just because it's all inclusive does it mean you have to be a cheap person.

    This is our 2nd time at Garza Blanca and it was fabulous as the 1st (just this time without the kids). We will continue to come back every chance we can because it is just so amazing. If you want to destress, relax, eat, drink, meet new friends, and just be treated like royalty; then this is your place. I cannot recommend this place enough to family and friends and really don't want to because I don't want to see the prices go up but I understand that a resort-like GB is too special to keep to myself. Also, it is sooooo worth buying the all-inclusive package with your trip since you will eat the finest you have ever had and drink the best quality liquor too. The rooms are amazing, the views and sunsets are even better. Stop thinking about it and just do it, you will not be disappointed. FYI, it is a little hectic at the PVR airport, but once you get to GB it will all be worth it. One thing they need to add is a nightclub where you could dance the night away, but I am sure it is coming with all the expansions they have planned for GB.

    Love this place. The only thing that they could improve on is if they could provide more information to guests about the layout of the property, what you can do, times you can do things. They do have concierges, but I don't feel I need to go to the concierge for every little thing: like to find out the times and locations of the restaurants, activities etc. Other than that, I would definitely go to this property again and recommend it to anyone looking for a first class resort.

    The entire property is beautiful, the people are amazing. Lots to do but due to us having a 1 year old, it was a little limiting. Next time will vacation just adults

    The property was beautiful, our room had a beach view on the fourth floor. The food was good as well. The resort is a little far away from the city, but nothing a cab or Uber can’t fix. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle.
