Awful customer service, check-in is at 4pm and room wasnt ready and they didnt care to accommodate us or even offer any service while we waited even though we paid for all inclusive. Concierge was awful, they didnt help at all, got all my restaurant reservations wrong. We were celebrating an anniversary and none of our special requests were honored. Would not recommend. There are other resorts that are less expensive and way better.

One of the best hotels I've stayed at. One thing I didn't like was the receptionist service, she was somewhat rude and had an attitude but other than every thing else was great. My lady and I enjoyed our stay there.

This property is absolutely amazing will not disappoint and the food is equally good. If you are all inclusive make reservations in advance for all nights when you arrive . There was information deliberately withheld that would have made understanding the property and amenities until we listened to a time share pitch even though they don’t call it that anymore. Avoid the people in the lobby who’s job is to super nice then convince you to go to hear them pitch a membership deal. Sales people aren’t too pushy if you say no …but just don’t waist your time. Enjoy your vacation… the pitch is not worth your valuable time that thou can’t get back. But the property itself exceeds expectations!

Garza Blanca was a beautiful property with wonderful dining properties. There were great activities that were included and 2 pools with wonderful service. We had issues with our room and communication with the concierge. Incorrect information was given to us upon our check-out time and our access to our all-inclusive plan. We also had issues with our roundtrip transportation to and from the airport. It would have been better to take a taxi instead of the concierge shuttle service. The taxi was much more inexpensive and flexible with pickup times. We were disappointed in our room upon check-in because we had booked an ocean view, panoramic room, but were on the second floor with only views of the trees. We were connected to a room with a large family that was very loud and we had some frustrations with the concierge for not being more accommodating. We were on our honeymoon and while the service at the restaurants and pool was amazing, we were disappointed with the concierge and overall communication of the hotel.
