Why We Love It

  • The property sits on a lush nature preserve less than 20 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta
  • The Pacific Ocean on one side, the Sierra Madre Mountains on the other
  • Rooms are great for families and have a terrace and living area; suites are even larger
  • An infinity pool pours down toward a private beach

In 2014, U.S. News ranked Puerto Vallarta the number-one place to visit in Mexico, citing “small-town ambience” and “one of the most unique and sophisticated oceanfronts” in the country. Fewer than 20 minutes down the bay by car, but still up against that enviable beachfront, Garza Blanca Preserve Resort provides a peaceful isolation that draws movie stars and Broadway legends.

With the lush forests of the Sierra Madre Mountains at its back, the resort slowly descends a hill toward a private beachfront, spreading its 165 spacious rooms and suites over 85 acres of tropical gardens and palm trees. An infinity swimming pool curves along the patio, where beds, hammocks and lounge chairs are within range of an alfresco bar and lounge. A steakhouse opens to a terrace where ocean views are framed by torches, and a seafood restaurant -- which also looks out at the water -- serves wine from a 2,600-bottle cellar.

Rooms here are spacious, starting at 633 square feet, which fits a walk-in closet, living area, and a terrace with a hammock. Upgrading to a suite more than doubles the space, and features a separate living room, Jacuzzi bath, laundry, two dining areas (one inside, one on the terrace) and a full kitchen.

From the press:
  • “Guests are quick to applaud the resort's lush and peaceful grounds, especially around the infinity pool” -- U.S. News & World Report
  • “Garza Blanca epitomizes the kind of sunny serenity you'd expect from a five-star resort on the Pacific coast of Mexico” -- Concierge.com
