We stayed at Samba for a few weeks in January. The resort is one of the oldest resorts in Nuevo Vallarta. The rooms are musty and the bathrooms are mouldy. It's not that the rooms are dirty, the cleaners do a good job but the hotel needs to be renovated and updated. Especially the bathrooms. There were only two restaurants... More

Plus all of us got sick with food or water poisoning plus flue like... More

The staff was very friendly. Everyone was very nice, happy, and helpful. The beach was nice, and the pool was ok. The guests consisted mainly of locals. The rooms smelled very musty, I have stayed in many Mexico resorts, and this is one of the worst I have ever experienced. The free wifi only worked in one location (the center... More

We booked into a 4 star and arrived to find a less than desirable resort. Very small (about 125 rooms, our pillows were lumpy, no mini fridge or balcony, the counter in our bathroom was falling down, no hot water and the shower didn't drain. The service was decent, although we had red wine served in both high ball glasses... More

My husband, two teenagers and mother-in-law went the third week in March. What others say about the service is true - it is top-notch! We truly enjoyed our stay simply because the staff were wonderful. I have to give kudos to Salvador - the BEST waiter! He was prompt, very friendly and made our drinks to suit our taste. He... More

We throughly enjoyed our vacation here! It was small but perfect for us. Loved having the chairs right on the beach and how everything was so close. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend for families with small children.

Stayed at Samba Vallarta at the beginning of April with my sister. It was lovely. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and always clean. The beds were actually quite comfortable but the pillows were average. The buffet had a wide variety of foods with different cultures represented each day. There was entertainment every night and...

The staff was the best thing about this resort. Friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic. Remembered our names and always had a smile on their face. The beach and pool area was also lovely. Everything else was average or below average. We had trouble checking in; we had booked two rooms and they tried to only give us one, and charge us for... More
