Fabulous resort

Perhaps the best all-inclusieve resort we have stayed at. Great rooms, Great staff, excellent Food and beverage. This resort is not so large, has a medium size pool, and smaller restaurants. Food is innovative, and excellent, Nice wine list, something we value, and a true gem. The only improvemernt opportunity we saw, was the addition of a bit more eveninig entertainment, and the additionn of a Central meeting point, like a lobby bar. It is Nices to vacation away from “the misses”. Highly recommend this resort.

Good hotel

Hello, I was really happy with Amstar accommodation, they were there right I got off the plane, hotel was good too, the food was excellent but the staff at the hotel was very poor in giving information for tourists, it was either wrong or didn't have ideas about it. The room we had was really good and clean, the room service staff was really kind and respectful. the only thing that really bumped us out, was the waiters at the restaurant, when we got our ticket to sign off and leave a tip that was the part we really didn't like it, we always tipped the waiters in cash and we never add it to our room. So, the last night we were there at Hiroshi Restaurant one of the staff did a wrong thing. once we signed off our ticket with room number and give them $30.00 in cash and after that when we checked out the receptionist told us that we have tip charge on our room which was totally wrong the waiter himself added a tip without oour permission even though we gave him a $30 tip which was more than enough we talked to the manager and they took care of it. I just don't like to be lied or cheated. overall we had a good time but at the end they really disappointed us.

Felt like a millionaire

This place is awesome! The views are magnificent with the mountains in the backyard and the ocean in front. The pools are clean and peaceful. We were treated very well and felt safe the whole time we were there. We took the local bus into town and that was a fun experience. Lots to do and see. You must do the Rhythm of the Night cruise So worth the money! I would recommend the 5:30 one as it is a five-hour excursion. The food was an event each night. Be sure to schedule your dinners right away and make sure to make it to the rooftop. The steak with the garlic risotto is out of this world. There are a couple of things to be aware of. They do want you to sit through a timeshare meeting right away. We chose not to do this and opted out. We did not get a lot of pressure for saying no which was nice. Do use the safe in the room. I had $20 taken from my purse, which was tucked away in a cabinet under some clothes. I was also careless and a diamond necklace was also taken from my make up bag. This was disappointing because you feel like it is a first-rate, high-quality place. We reported the theft and their lip service was great but very little to nothing was done.

Dream Honeymoon

My husband and I booked 5 nights at Garza Blanca for our honeymoon, almost a year ago. Now here I am, one year later and ready to book here again, I figured that prompted a review. We had the most amazing five days and our only regret was not booking another night! The service was great, our drink orders were remembered and brought directly to us at the pool by day two. The restaurants were delicious, we loved having the variety. Our room, INCREDIBLE. Our bed was so comfy I almost thought to ask where it was purchased. My husband really enjoyed the hammock on the room patio, several great naps were taken there! I can't say enough good things about our experience here. We can't wait to go back

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.
