A new property in Puerta Vallarta- Garza Blanca

On our last night in Puerta Vallarta, we stopped over at a marvelous new hotel,  Garza Blanca on the coast 30 minutes from the airport. It was a famous old hotel, but it has been completely renovated from the ground up. It has been running now for two years.  We were given the 2 bedroom penthouse suite-overlooking the beach , Puerta Vallarta and the pool area.  It was delightful. The design is contemporary, clean lines and wonderful warm Mexican colors -divine artwork everywhere. I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
 The restaurant, Blanca Blue already in the top five restaurants in PV, served one of the most memorable meals I have had in a very long time.  Puerta Vallarta has a famous gourmet international food festival- this is the 17th year, and the hotel has visiting celebrity chef Jonatan Gomez Luna. We had the privilege of dining with the most charming and able GM, Miguel Andres Hernandez and Mary Carmen Lopez, the sales coordinator.  We had the tasting menu that evoked images of elBulli from Spain. They were experimenting with molecular tastes that change in your mouth.  15 items from liquid olive, to cotton candy tree( melted foie gras wrapped in cotton candy-my favorite),Mexican corn truffle, etc,etc. Absolutely out of this world!!! The festival is from November 10-20th.  Be sure to stop by Blanca Blue restaurant if you happen to be in the Puerta Vallarta area.  A taste sensation!
