My wife & I stayed in Building 5 for 5 days. Our room had plumbing problems. Believe it or not very hot water came out of the cold water fosset and the hot water fosset. The temperature could not be adjusted so that we could take showers.The concierge told us to run the hot water for 3 minutes and then turn the cold water on. It did not work. It was not a pleasurable experience. A second irritation as a 24 hour humm from an air conditioner from an adjacent building when we were on our balcony. Rather listening to this humm we would rather be listening to ocean waves. That was the bad, the good was the view from our balcony, the food, and the very nice employees.

Disappointed Overall

We arrived at the resort at around noon and knew our check in time was 3:00 pm. We did not get into our room till a little after 4:00 pm. Later that evening my wife wanted to enjoy the Jacuzzi but it didn't work. We complained and at first were not willing to do anything. Someone came to show us a honeymoon suite which was much smaller and a huge downgrade in my opinion. Then offered us the same room we already had on a different floor but wanted us to move right then which was 3:00 am in the morning. We did not move then but addressed in when we woke up the next day and we moved to that room. The service from the different restaurants was not that great as well. Takes forever to get drinks so when you order its better to order 2 or 3 at a time. Wish I could get some money back from them or a credit as this was a disappointing birthday for my wife.

Go Ahead and Book this Resort

Bottom line: This resort was fantastic. The room was great, the food fantastic, the drinks plentiful and the view priceless. My wife was hesitant about travel to Mexico given all the stories in the news, but we felt safe the entire time and the resort itself is very secure. A word of advice, when you clear customs in Puerto Vallarta, go past all the vendors trying to sell stuff, they're relentless, just tell them no and go to all the transportation outside the airport. They do try to get you to do their tour at the resort, but we told them we weren't interested and we weren't bothered the rest of the time. The resort itself was extremely clean and our room was amazing. We did stay at the Garza Blanca, not the adults only hotel, but we had access to those facilities. The food was great at all the restaurants and there was a steak or chicken available for those that don't have an adventurous palette. The steakhouse was our favorite, the view was just as incredible as the food. The drinks and poolside service was great as well...be sure to take care of your servers because they made sure our cups were full and food was with us soon after we ordered it. Be sure to book a kayak trip to los arcos...it's a 5 mile paddle round trip, but it's well worth it. It's included as part of your stay at the resort. We also did the couples package at the spa - and it's probably the best spa and treatment we've ever received...it's definitely worth the money. The beach, although small, is nice and clean, with rock breaks out a bit to keep the waves manageable. There are kayaks, snorkels, and paddleboards available for water activity. We'll definitely be putting this on our list of places to return. This place was awesome, go ahead and book it.

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.
