We stayed at Garza Blanca for 5 nights in the Honeymoon suite. The room itself, the view of the ocean, the services, and (especially) the food made our experience unforgettable.
Room: Very spacious, just enough furniture, comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. (WARNING: if you leave the door patio open along with AC running, the marble floors become very slippery. Physics, there is nothing you can do to avoid it... except closing the doors, or turning the AC off)
Balcony: Very spacious in a honeymoon suit with our own jacuzzi tub, which we used almost every evening.  The hammock is large enough to fit tow, we checked. We moved the table to a different location on the balcony to have shade for our daily breakfast routine.
Beach: Enough lounge chairs, service is quick and accurate, mostly sand, but there is a strip of rocky bottom when entering the water, but only for a couple of steps.
Pool: Have no idea, didn't use it. Why would you go into it, if there is a beautiful ocean right there??!
FOOD: One of the best food experiences we had in All-Inclusive. No buffets, so all food was made to order. We booked an all-inclusive option and were very happy we did, else our food bill would double our trip expenses. Everything is just so tasty and so beautiful that you can't help yourself but indulge...
Other: We used their tennis courts every day and only on the last day learned that there is a reservation process when we got asked to leave by a lady, who apparently made a reservation. Would've been nice to know this from our concierge.
There was live jazz music in all the restaurants as a background. Not overwhelming, but creating a great atmosphere.
Room service was on time. Like ON-TIME. We ordered breakfast for 9am, and we had a knock on the door at 9:00am sharp!!! Really appreciate the punctuality.
Pelicans... There are a lot of them!!! We didn't get tired of watching their hunting games with gulls all day, every day we were there...

We will DEFINITELY be coming back to this hotel in the future and will bring friends!! 

Room tip: Choose all-inclusive option at booking - it's totally worth it!!

We love Garza Blanca Vallarta. It is the best in food, drinks, facilities, and even more in SERVICE, it has the BEST employees. Whenever we think of spending time on a Mexican beach, our number 1 option is Garza Blanca Vallarta; we feel highly valued. This time we celebrated the birthday of one of our daughters and they all did their best to make her spend some unforgettable days. They have a new area called TierraLuna, where there is music, exhibitors of Mexican products, food, and even a carrousel, we spent an excellent night there!! Our biggest thanks to Meeyrah and Paula from KidsClub, our daughters adore them; excellent concierge Esmeralda; excellent pool and beach managers Roberto and Javier; and our dear pool and beach waiter Alejandro, he is the best ever! Hoping to be back in Garza Blanca Vallarta soon!!!

My wife and I, accompanied by our MiMi, spent our anniversary at the Garza Blanca. We had previously stayed in a waterfront apartment, but elected to stay in the towers this time. We had a two BR on the 8th floor. We had a beautiful wrap around balcony equipped with a jacuzzi. Housekeeping was perfect as always. We really enjoyed the sunsets, but missed the ocean sounds of the waterfront. We also chose the AI package with excellent choices in food. We especially like Hirochis. Service at the Garza Blanca resorts is alway well above average, however, our Elite Concierge Team was the best ever! Hats off to Jovana, Lorena and Gloria! We’ll be back.

We love Garza Blanca! My finance and I can't get over how nice, warm and professional the hotel staff was. We felt so welcomed and will fore sure be back! The hotel room was beautiful and the food was incredible. We enjoyed dinner every night at Blanca Blu and the stake house Bolka. The resort had wonderful transportation trolley's as well which came in handy. Will be back!!

The best Mexican vacation ever. The manager Darinka was amazing. She made sure that we were taken care of. She went above and beyond to provide the care and comfort. The food and service was simply amazing, and the staff were the most professional staff ever. Thank you all for making our vacation so memorable.
