From the moment to arrive at Samba you know you will be taken care of. This is a middle size hotel, ideal for families and anyone who does not like to line up to get service. They offer buffet in tow locations, close to the beach and in the formal restaurant. Both offer buffet with a large variety of well... More

Staff is very nice and helpful. Food buffet is very delicious and if you are taking kids there's plenty of entertainent to keep thsm busy while parents enjoy a nice drink by the pool. Everything you need is in there , no need to go outside of the hotel if you don't want too.

This was my first trip to Mexico. The room was older and not fancy, but the landscaping was beautiful. We found the resort to be very family-friendly, and a good value for the price. We recommend the "fine dining" experience...the Spanish coffee was delicious, and kept us going back for the entertaining show of the way they made it, with... More

I have been meaning to write this review so sorry for the delay. We booked this resort because of the good reviews that it got and we were not disappointed. I must admit my first reaction was not great in that it did not have the standard grand lobby that we have come to expect at a Mexican all inclusive... More

Samba Vallarta was in last April 2014, overall the service is not good, check in was very slow and incompetent people in reception, which itself is the food is good but the best is the people of activities (especially Godinez and Zugey Manuel Rosales) and the guys from Bar (with special mention to Martin and Erneso, but all are great)

I am currently staying in the resort as I write this review. Nothing stands out in this resort. Everything is basic. The worst part was no internet other than the lobby area. Internet was the first thing I checked out while booking for this hotel and while they advertise free internet throughout the hotel. It does not work in 90%... More

I recently stayed here with my mom and sister. We had a great time! All staff members were incredibly friendly, patient and helpful. It was a bit more low-key than the surrounding resorts, but we liked that! We were 1 of only a couple Americans there and that was nice. The pool was a little cloudy and it was really... More
