Best Vacation Ever

Had the best experience at Garza Blanca in Puerto Vallarta. The staff was attentive and went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. I traveled with 4 other girls and we all felt very safe and taken care of. All-inclusive is worth every penny. Views of the beach on the patio was beautiful. I reccomend the steak house for dinner, you have to make reservations for restaurants so be sure you do that beforehand. They also offer fun activities like kayaking, hiking and wine tastings. The resort is located about 30+ minutes from Downtown/Malecon which was a pleasant day trip. Will definitely be coming back, I would recommend this resort 100%!!!

Birthday Weekend

I hesitated and debated between 3-4 Palms and I'll explain why. My sister and I share the same birthday. No, we are not twins; I am 2 years older. We are close to retirement age. Our birthdays fell on a Saturday. We figured we should do something fun together since the next time our birthdays fall on a Saturday will be 7 years from now. We decided as sisters to give each other a birthday/Christmas present and take a weekend trip. My sister flew down from Michigan to where I live in Texas. Together we flew using Cheap Caribbean.com. My son's girlfriend had told me about it. Everything was great in Puerto Vallarta. We left that Friday morning, returned Sunday evening, my sister flew back to Michigan Monday and we both returned to work Tuesday. Everything was great EXCEPT as soon as we got off the plane we were directed to salesmen who offered discount tickets to an excursion we planned to see all the while giving us shots of tequila saying Happy Birthday. We were swayed in the wrong direction. We wanted to find the service that would take us to the hotel. After that hoopla, once we finally got to the hotel we met the concierge rep who offered us the same tickets free based on attending their presentation. Of course we accepted, but did not realize until it was too late that they were trying to sell us resident membership. The following morning the sales rep sat down and ate breakfast with us which was somewhat uncomfortable. In summary, he did a great presentation including his boss (I noticed other employees who were like spies sitting at other tables listening and watching us which made me feel uncomfortable as well and I am NOT a paranoid person), but we were not interested and it took up 4 hours of our short weekend which left out one thing we had put on our agenda to do that we were no longer able to partake because that time was lost as a result. They asked what could they have done to make it better? I said to let the guests have a few days, get acclimated with the surroundings before approaching them. I also mentioned to leave folks alone who are just there for the weekend. We saved our money for this trip and were upset some of it was taken away for something we had no interest of at this time. The concierge should have been straight up front in the first place. That would have enabled us to make a firm no decision right there. We would have been better off paying for the tickets ourselves and passing up the presentation. They bombarded us with all of this once we got into the hotel lobby followed by the very next morning dealing with the presentation. We came to have a relaxing weekend. We understand sales people have to do their job and they did a great one, but used the wrong party wasting all of our time. They need to find out first who may have an interest then take it from there. We did not have an interest in such whatsoever. What we saw on the grounds was great, but we were not interested in membership. In fact, we already know of someone who has a time share in Puerto Vallarta. Sales didn't want to hear any of that. Other than that mishap everything was wonderful from the luxurious hotel, beach, birthday dessert, swimming pool, entertainment, kind and courteous employees, taxi service, food, holiday decorations, and scenic views of Paradise. We will definitely use Cheap Caribbean.com again, but note it just takes once for us. We learned our lesson and now know to just purchase full price tickets ourselves to check out excursions bypassing those time share, resident membership, presentations. My son and his wife had just spent a week in Riviera Maya and told me he forgot to tell me about the sales people; wish he had. I have told many people about cheapcaribbean.com. They are excited and said they will check it out. Everything was so reasonably price. My sister and I are now thinking about doing a birthday trip every year now. We will definitely be using cheapcaribbean.com again. Thank you.

Great Resort for a Family!!!

This was our 4th trip to the Garza Blanca. We have a child and are always concerned about safety when traveling. At the Farza Blanca we always see the same employees and they even remember our names. The resort itself is a little distance away from the hustle and bustle of town and is more secure than some of the other places we have stayed in PV. The rooms are always clean and modern with great service in the room or down by the pools. We highly recommend the Garza BlNca if you are traveling to PV!

Amazing!

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Garza Blanca Preserve and Resort. Soon as I walked in to check in the view was amazing! The staff was awesome so nice and willing to help with any needs you may have. The food was great and drinks were delicious! I rented the one bedroom suite with an awesome beach front balcony with amazing ocean view. They offer room service and set it all up for you to just sit down and enjoy your meal. If it’s someone birthday celebration they can help with arrangement such as balloons and ordering a birthday cake. The beach was beautiful clear water in the swimming area darker as u go deeper naturally. They have stand up paddle boat and kayak to rent out for free. Just sign a waiver and off you go. They also have hiking trips and kayak tour with prior reservations. Which I heard was amazing but my reservation was cancelled due to too many jelly fishes in the water where the tour leads you which makes sense to cancel it. Even witness two dolphins from my amazing balcony. I came home to my computer to already see when to book my next trip! Truly amazing resort

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.
