We just returned from 10 days at the Samba, October 4 - 14th. Have stayed at (I think) 19 different all inclusives ranging from 3 to 5+ stars. Samba rates right up near the top, in our opinion. At first glance you notice that it is older and small. Then it dawns on you that the food quality and selection... More

I seriously have no idea where the good reviews are coming from. We went there mid September 2014 where the main season was over and the hotel was basically empty. We asked for a room with a balcony where they wanted to charge us 25$ a day additionally. Food was always the same and additional services (which were originally promised,... More

Our party of four stayed five nights in two king rooms at the Samba Vallarta. The rooms were spacious and clean but could use updating. There was a bit of a mildew smell in our room when we first checked-in but after running the air conditioning for a while, it dissipated. None of the common areas are air-conditioned but the... More
