Great place

I have been to several resorts in puerto Vallarta and this resort had the best food. It is sit down dining style with several restaurants to choose from. You have the option of breakfast buffet or menu dinlng. You will want all-inclusive. Even though you are all-inclusive the waiters bring you a bill to sign which has the price of the meal in pesos and US dollars. Dining for 4 adults ran around $300. That is why you go all-inclusive. They also have higher end liquors. Most dining is reservation but we never had a problem calling 10 minutes ahead. This hotel is geared for relaxation. No swim up pool bar. Soothing bacground music. On certain days a person may be playing a flute, saxophone, or violin. There is no night time shows. This did not bother us since sit down dining was its own nice experience. The lack of shows also helped push you to see downtown puerto Vallarta. Room. We stayed in the one bedroom suite on the beach. Very spacious with kitchen, washer &dryer, 2 bathrooms, pull out couch, and hammock on the patio. Enough space for 4 adults (2 per bead). We used the kitchen pantry as a closet. There are larger suites across the road but they have a nice trolley moving between buildings every 15 minutes. You do not really notice the road. Advantage of staying across the street is the view and you are able to use a rooftop infinity pool and bar all day. Other guests only have access after 6 pm. But again it only has bacground music. I would not hesitate staying in the larger streets. Beach, not much of a beach. They had to put rock breaker barrier to keep sand from washing away. Very small but rocks make snorkeling better than a sandy beach area. Staff. Best ever. Only negative I have is when they try to get you to take do some type of time share style presentation. I did not do it but others that did said it took 3 hrs not 1.5 hrs. They will give you discount trips, wifi (in room only & only 1 device). You can negotiate. Gym- very nice,enough equipment for any gym rat.

Garza Blanca

This is the best hotel resort I have ever experienced!!! The infinity pool and the all inclusive food are to die for!!!!!!!!! Must say, the flights they book for you are brutal... we are only a 2.5 short direct plane ride away from Puerta Vallarta but the way they book the flights to save money had us traveling OVER 12 hours each way with long layovers in Mexico City. Which basically takes away 2 entire days from work (and vacation)

What's to Love

The menus rival the vistas at Blanca Blue, which has incredible views of Banderas Bay and a 230 bottle wine list. Impressive light and flavorful contemporary fare ensures unforgettable dining.

 

What We'd Change

The beach area is a little small, but the infinity pool is a prime location with gorgeous ocean views.

Hotel Description

Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa: Noble Beach Prize Winner - The View - Priceless

Are you ready to check-out with a check-in at island-style rest and relaxation? Just a hop and a skip south of Puerto Vallarta, resting peacefully between the lush emerald foliage of the Sierra Madres and the cerulean blues of the Pacific Ocean in Banderas Bay, Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa makes its home along the winding shores of the Rio Nogalito.

The beaches of Banderas Bay are known for their expansive vistas and cozy, pristine sands, and the Garza Blanca's beautiful stretch is no exception. Grab a complimentary sun lounger under a shady umbrella and wait for the courteous lounger-side waiter service to cater to your every whim. The sizable infinity pool appears to disappear into the Pacific and offers a Jacuzzi as well as the same luxury amenities available at the beach, sans the sand.

Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa offers restaurant options that leave nothing to be desired, courtesy of Blanca Blue, an exceptional gourmet experience with contemporary fare like ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese, parmesan and asparagus, served with butter sauce and real slabs of San Daniele prosciutto. Aqua Azul pleasures palettes with traditional Mexican cuisine and an assortment of ceviches.

After you've tucked in, test your tensile strength on a paddle board, train for the rowing team on a kayak or blow bubbles in the surf on a snorkeling expedition, all courtesy of Garza Blanca. For the fairway fiends in the group, Garza Blanca is a short driving distance from four gorgeous 18-hole golf courses. Take your pick from Marina Vallarta, designed by Joe Finger; Los Flamingos Country Club, designed by Percy J. Clifford; or Vista Vallarta, home to two separate courses, one designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskopf.
