After two years of staying at home, my husband and I were desperate to go on a vacation. We had been to Mexico a couple of times before and spent our honeymoon in Cancun. This year, we decided we wanted to visit Los Cabos. Since we have three children under twelve, it was important to us to find a family-friendly lodging option. We researched several all-inclusive resorts and the most important consideration for us was what the resorts could offer for families. Top on our wish list was a supervised kids’ club, babysitting services, and as a bonus, we were also hoping for a resort that would provide some toddler supplies to save us from lugging around overloaded luggage. We finally decided on Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos. Here is my review of their Family Program.
About Garza Blanca Los Cabos
Before putting the spotlight on the incredible Family Program at Garza Blanca Los Cabos, it is beneficial to know the magical experience your family and you will have at this one of a kind 5-star luxury gem situated in the sandy corridor between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, the two cities which form Los Cabos, allowing you to explore both locations with ease.
Garza Blanca truly is a paradise on earth. The flora and fauna that surround the resort seem to be painted on a canvas by a mixture of extraordinary artists, but it is actual reality. The azure blue waters, the golden sand beaches, and the picturesque cactus-lined desert all combine to give you and your family a breathtaking landscape to experience the best family holiday. It sure does make you wake up with a smile when the first sight you see from your beautifully designed oceanfront suite, or in one of the luxury residences, is the never-ending waters of the Pacific Ocean, and if you are lucky enough to visit during whale season, you will witness humpback whales majestically breaching these waters.
Apart from luxurious accommodation, the resort offers a world-class spa, six restaurants, eight heated outdoor swimming pools, a gym, an indoor events hall, and a kids’ club with dynamic programming. In addition to that, guests staying in every suite receive the assistance of a dedicated butler to help you with everything from making restaurant reservations to booking transportation and tours.
The resort and the destination combined are already enough to ensure a great family holiday, but it gets even better when you consider everything included in Garza Blanca’s amazing Family Program.
An Unrivaled Family Vacation
Designed to enhance your experience and guarantee that travelers of all ages enjoy the ultimate vacation with even more privileges, family travel does not get better than this. What is amazing about this exclusive program is that it is completely free and is available to families who stay a minimum of three nights in the one bedroom suite category or above. The benefits are incredible, and allow kids to eat and stay free. Their nightly turndown service helps get all the family ready for bed and get the kids sleeping and ready for the following day in paradise.
Our family chose to stay in the 3 Bedroom Loft. We loved the split-level design and ample space. Our 12-year-old son, stayed in the bedroom on the ground floor, our 10-year-old daughter stayed in one of the bedrooms upstairs, and we stayed in the other bedroom with our 2-year-old son.
The 3 Bedroom Loft is part of the Residential Retreats, which is another program in addition to the Family Program, which entitles you to extra perks such as an in-suite breakfast and dinner catered by a private chef, an in-suite mixology class or tasting, and a premium bar all available for no additional charge when you book the Gourmet Culinary All-Inclusive plan.
After the kids hit the pillow, we indulged in some mixed drinks from the complimentary bar, which includes vodka, tequila, rum, Baileys, whiskey, and gin. We were on holiday after all.
What’s Included in the Family Program?
In addition to the fantastic amenities that are already provided by Garza Blanca Los Cabos, family members will benefit from even more spoils from the Family Program. For parents with toddlers, the resort thoughtfully provides a baby bathtub, bouncer, stroller, monitor, baby bottle sterilizer, and bottle warmer for parents to use. And for the trips to the nearby cities, the resort also provides a car seat.
Another perk to the Family Program is that kids aged 0 –12 get treated like VIPs. Every child is given take-home amenities including: a plush toy, a Mexican handcrafted toy, a coloring book with games, and a jute drawstring backpack. In addition to that, the resort provides kid-sized robes and slippers for them to use during their stay. Our kids felt very special to receive these gifts and still cherish them as a reminder of their amazing family holiday at Garza Blanca Los Cabos!
Fun for the Whole Family
The resort offers amazing activities for the whole family to enjoy either together or separately. As a family, we played pickle ball at the indoor tennis court, took Spanish lessons on the terrace of Bocados, played cornhole, and water volleyball. My husband and I took advantage of the resort babysitting services several times to look after our youngest son, while we enjoyed some time with our older kids or alone time, and they did a great job. We never worried for a moment and always knew that he was in the best hands.
While our older kids enjoyed making new friends at the Kids’ Club and participating in various activities like building sandcastles on the beach, making crafts, and playing games, my husband and I tried the electric beach bicycle tour, enjoyed a couple’s massage at Spa Imagine, and enjoyed some quality alone time at The Rooftop. The beach bicycle tour was exhilarating, after getting the hang of it; we absolutely loved the spa and felt like a million bucks after our treatment; and at the Rooftop we swam in the infinity pool admiring the endless views of the Pacific Ocean, and refreshed ourselves with a Mezcaltini cocktail, made with mezcal, passion fruit, chile ancho liqueur, and infused with basil and lime juice. With your loved one next to you with that cocktail and those views, you will feel that life truly can’t get any better.
Reward Your Kids…. And You!
When choosing resort to host you and your little ones, Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos is one of the best gifts you can give your family this year. Family travel packages in Los Cabos don’t get much better than this one. From pre-arrival to check-out, everything was absolutely amazing! To say we found the best family program in Los Cabos is an understatement. And when you live this experience and see the excitement on your kids’ faces, it really makes it all worth it.
We have never felt so taken care of while vacationing with our kids and the extra amenities were a huge help. The only difficulty we had was when we told the kids that it was time to leave paradise, they did not want to go home! But no better way to get the kids behaving than by promising to return to Garza Blanca again soon!
