Overall great stay but a little bit disappointed of the breakfast buffet for a 5 star hotel. Not a lot of options and the food was ok

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
I arrived and had to wait 1/2 for a room. I was given a room in the timeshare tower. Tower 5, bottom floor. No ocean view. Just trees. I asked for another room. They said none were available. Then, I was told I’d need to hear a timeshare talk or have to pay a penalty. I said i didn’t want to because I paid $2200 for three nights to just relax. They said it was just 45 minutes and to stop complaining. Basically, the entire trip was ruined. There were employees everywhere asking me to go to the timeshare talk. It was annoying. On the last night, I had made a reservation for the steak restaurant. Fancy. But when we tried to order, half the menu was only available for outrageous prices. Needless to say, I didn’t order anything from the half pricey menu. Overall, this was a bait and switch. I thought I’d get a room with a view in the hotel. I was in a tower which was 10 minutes away by trolley. It was across the highway, actually. And the view was nonexistent because it was the bottom floor. Upgrade?? Never happened. I’m very disappointed that I used Expedia yo book and that you even use this hotel and don’t warn people that it’s a timeshare trap.

I felt like a millionaire living in luxury! The hotel was clean, the food exceptional, the views spectacular and the service top notch. Everyone should experience this grandeur, at Garza Blanca.

The resort, the rooms, and the staff were excellent and above my expectations. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer! We will return to this resort; and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Puerto Vallarta.

We booked a 2 bedroom ocean front suite but they told us the room wasn't available and put us in a tower suite. They didnt give us map or anything about activities at the resort. They require reservations for dinner and no restaurant are close by so ended up waiting 45 min for room service the 1st night. Food was just ok. The property and rooms were beautiful. Panoramic ocean view and jungle view could see fireworks nightly from the balcony. Trolley ride wasnt bad you can also walk to the beach. Staff wore masks but most of the guests didnt. Free Kayak trip to los arcos with snorkeling was great. We missed the hotels waterfall hike but did it ourselves had to climb over a few rocks water shoes worked well. We had breakfast included but they made us sign for it every time we ate. When we checked out they charged us for breakfast they said they removed it, their printer was broken so I had them email me the bill. We checked out went to the zoo, great zoo you can buy bags of food to feed the animals. Fed a bear and Giraffe pretty cool. Then walked to Tonys for lunch. Great seafood. Noticed the hotel didnt take off one of the breakfasts when we went back to get our bags asked if they could credit it back said their system was down and they would recharge me the bill without the breakfast and credit back the whole 1st bill when it was working. I was a little hesitant but they did credit me back. El Jacalito is a great seafood restaurant in Mismoya
