Use Point Redemption

Use Point Redemption to Book Your Meal Plan in Los Cabos

Use your club points to pay for up to 60% of services at the resort and your meal plan when you stay with us at Garza Blanca Los Cabos! In addition to booking accommodations, members can use their points instead of cash when purchasing meals and hotel extras.   Enjoy more choices, and add more luxury and flexibility to your stay! Ask one of our agents how you can redeem your points for services at the time of booking.  For example, you can use them for things like the all-inclusive meal plans, flower arrangements, private chef services, and more. Choose the product or services you wish to reserve! (Prices vary per product, service, and by the resort.) You can pay up to 60% of the cost with your points, and the remaining 40% in cash. Do you have unused points? They can also be used to pay for either your meal plan or your services up to 60% of the cost. You will only pay the remaining 40% in cash. You can also use banked …

Why You Should Upgrade From a Biennial to an Annual Contract

There is no doubt about it, the more points you own, the greater flexibility you will have to stay in the types of suites you love best and to stay as long as you wish.  The great news is that you have a number of options available when you upgrade to an annual contract: Borrowing, Accelerating, and Banking. Borrowing When upgrading your membership is not an option for you at the time, the most obvious choice you have is to borrow points from future years to cover your reservation. Members with Annual membership will be able to borrow a full year’s allotment of Club points for up to 5 successive calendar years in advance for use in the current calendar year. All you have to do is pay for the maintenance fees. Biennial members can borrow from their next use year’s allocation. Remember that borrowed points may not be used during the holiday seasons unless you are an Elite member. Acceleration Acceleration is when you use points from the back end of your membership. This …

Why a Points Membership is the Best!

When it comes to your membership, a points membership gives you a lot of options. Vacations That Suit the Way You Travel Your points membership gives you the flexibility to book different type of units at each resort, and in different seasons. For example, right now you can book at Villa Del Palmar Cancun or Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta. Later this year and into next year you will also be able to book at Garza Blanca Cancun, Garza Blanca Los Cabos, and Garza Blanca Riviera Maya with your points! Booking with points requires a minimum stay of 2 nights during the regular calendar and requires a minimum of 7 consecutive days during holidays. More Points Means More Flexibility The more points you own, the more flexible your program becomes! A points based membership means that you can use your allocated Club Points to book a short trip in a big unit or a long vacation in a smaller unit, or even two trips in one year in two different resorts.   For example, if you …
