Amazing Place
My 23 y/o daughter and I went for a 4 day get a way. The website honestly did not do the place justice. It was much nicer than I expected it to be. We stayed in a ground floor beachfront room. It had 2 queen beds, a mini fridge, coffee pot, large walk in closet, a patio with a hammock and beautiful view. The staff were soooooo accommodating and friendly. I wouldn't recommend the all inclusive meal plan. We didn't and what we spent on food and drinks (plenty of margaritas!) wasn't nearly as much as the plan would've cost. Be sure to go for a massage if you can. The Spa was the best I've ever experienced. I hope to return some day. :-)

Very bad experience, stay away from this property!
The hotel, service and the food was excellent. However, as a paying guest I did not appreciate the outrageous and high pressure to buy into their residence program. My wife and I attended a 90 minute session, that turned out to be four hours of torture and high pressure selling. We said no, and explained the program did not fit in to our lifestyle and travel plans. We were trying to be polite and finally walked out of the presentation. A few hours later they knocked on our room to try once more to convince us and again we said no! One hour later, they attempted to try again and obviously we were pissed-off and were ready to call the Mexican police for harassment. After calming down, we went for a swim and tried to enjoy the spa facilities with the time we had left on our vacation. That being said, although the hotel facilities and food we excellent. We will never stay at this property again, nor recommend it to our friends and relatives. Shame on the Garza Blanca management for disrespecting paying guests and allowing this to happen at a five star resort. We are seasoned travelers and understand this type of behavior happens on the street, but not in a five star hotel.

5 Star plus... cost was stunning low.
Amazing. Perfect resort and staff. Best thing by far was the quality of food. On the verge of fine dining territory for the Japanese restaurant. Steakhouse was excellent. Views spectacular. Don’t pass up this resort.

Very Good8.0
Great place but beware the sales pitch!
The site was very peaceful and beautiful. Our room was okay, we had paid ahead for a junior suite with ocean view, and technically we had one but it was on the ground floor and filtered through the trees. Honestly, for the price we paid we expected more. Beware of the "consierge" they assign you to upon check in! Having been to Mexico several times, we were familiar with the sales pitch of timeshare people, and though this person stated it was not a timeshare, they were definitely selling something. They offer you a 15% off coupon, in exchange for having a "tour". It was a think veiled sales pitch to have you see how you could invest in the property. Just say no!! That is, if you want a peaceful vacation. Other than that we had a good time. Pool was nice and the restaurant (Blanca Blue) was good as well. We stayed in building 5 and enjoyed the infinity pool, and bar service.
