The property is well kept 5 star hotel, the service is impeccable from when you get in until you leave. they cleaned my room 2 to 3 times A-day. The food is excellent from the sushi bar to the steakhouse to the Mexican food restaurant at the bottom of the main pool. Anything I ask for they delivered . The only thing I can ask for people to do is to TIP these people, they work harder than the people in the States. For people just to not Tip them is being very cheap. Most of them earn only $400 a month so when you tip them $2 to$3 that means a lot to them and more people need to start doing that just because it's all inclusive does it mean you have to be a cheap person.

This is our 2nd time at Garza Blanca and it was fabulous as the 1st (just this time without the kids). We will continue to come back every chance we can because it is just so amazing. If you want to destress, relax, eat, drink, meet new friends, and just be treated like royalty; then this is your place. I cannot recommend this place enough to family and friends and really don't want to because I don't want to see the prices go up but I understand that a resort-like GB is too special to keep to myself. Also, it is sooooo worth buying the all-inclusive package with your trip since you will eat the finest you have ever had and drink the best quality liquor too. The rooms are amazing, the views and sunsets are even better. Stop thinking about it and just do it, you will not be disappointed. FYI, it is a little hectic at the PVR airport, but once you get to GB it will all be worth it. One thing they need to add is a nightclub where you could dance the night away, but I am sure it is coming with all the expansions they have planned for GB.

The entire property is beautiful, the people are amazing. Lots to do but due to us having a 1 year old, it was a little limiting. Next time will vacation just adults
