Great romantic getaway

Beautiful hotel with two fantastic infinity pools, extremely large well-appointed rooms, great staff. The restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. Location is about 10 minutes' drive from downtown, which makes it an ideal spot if you want a quiet place to relax after a day in town.

Great Christmas!

We decided to do an international Christmas. Garza Blanca amazing. Our two bedroom tower suite was so stunning it is hard to deceive . Not as close to the port as some hotels but I liked the secluded area and didn't mind the cab rides . Also easy to get up to hillside tower with constant available shuttle. Beach rocky and tide was high but great. Beautiful staff. Time share experience a bit pressured but not required.

Getaway with my ninteen year old granddaughter

The hotel and amenities were amazing. We had a junior suite and my only complaint was the lack of privacy we would have loved to use the tub but didn't feel comfortable.

Vacation

The Hotel is modern and has amazing views, the food is very good for dinner. For Lunch it was average, except for the specials they had at the lower pool each day. The specials ranged from Sushi to Paella, they were worth trying. The room had a great view, very comfy and clean. My only issue with the room was they were doing some construction on a new tower and occasionally we heard noise in the morning. Overall it was a great place to have a high end vacation experience.
