We visited the Samba November 14-21st, 2014. This a small low key resort with great service. Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly by the bell hop. Check in was quick. The pool area is very nice and the beach is great! Lots of palapas and chairs and other shaded areas. The room clean and adequate for our family of... More

We booked our holiday through Westjet vacations and were greeted at the airport by their representative who escorted us to our transportation and within 30 minutes we were at the hotel where we were welcomed and promptly checked in. This is our 5th time staying at the Samba Vallarta and every time we visit, each trip is better than the... More

We have just returned home from a wonderful week at the Samba Vallarta. We cannot say enough about what a great hotel this is for a quiet getaway. The staff is amazing, the food was exactly what we hoped for - a good variety with lots of Mexican dishes! If we wanted something we did not see on the buffet,... More

The hotel was sold to us as a 4 star. It's a 3 star at best. The rooms are somewhat clean but visible mold in the bathroom and very worn. There was plaster heaving on one wall and we were put in a room with an adjoining door. It was a girls get-away leaving our husbands at home and after... More

We just arrived home from our stay at the Samba. This is a wonderful hotel, staff is second to none we feel. We have stayed here before and will be staying again. The new Manager, Oscar, has made some improvements since taking over last year. All rooms have little bar fridges now, the buffet food area is now enclosed with... More

Hi we have been to the Samba Vallarta three times now & what gives us a strong desire to return to the same hotel is by far the amazing staff that we've come to know. They will remember you the first time they meet you & will always welcome you back as if you were a family guest returning. Besides... More
