Just returned from a week at the Samba. Room on the first floor was notably musty/mildew apparently related to the a/c. Others in our party on the top, 4th floor, did not have this problem. Except for this severe problem, brochitis/sinusitis, all was quite good. Too bad. This is the only time we have had this experience in several trips... More

We just returned from a two-week vacation at this hotel which we also stayed at last year. I have to say that we were really treated royally as returning guests. The head bellman's first words to me were "Welcome Home," and when we got to our room overlooking the pool, there was a delightful "Welcome" spelled out in fresh flowers... More

We returned from the "Samba" after spending 17 glorius days. We booked for 2 weeks, but when the time came, couldn't leave. Luckily, there was a room available and we were able to extend our stay. We cannot say enough about this hotel and all of the staff. Everyone is soooo friendly and very helpful with any of your needs.... More

We just came back from 1 week at the Samba Vallarta (formerly Solare), and it was wonderful! I have to repeat other reviews - the staff are amazing, extremely hard-working, friendly and make the resort a great vacation spot. There were always plenty of lounging chairs on the beach and by the pool. The food was great, always lots of... More

Just back from spending 2 wks at Samba Vallarta in January 2005. Could not have been more pleased with the facility. The grounds were beautiful, the rooms large, well appointed, and exceptionally clean. The food was well above average. The buffet (no reservation required) was always varied, hot, and well prepared. The A La Carte restaurants were exceptional. Be sure... More

We just arrived back from the Samba Vallarta. 1-week stay from January 8-15/05. Our party of 5 found the resort a GREAT VALUE. Like in other reviews the staff is very friendly and the service is top notch. The rooms are basic and large. For the extra few $$$ the Balcony rooms are the way to go. The Buffet was... More

Samba Vallarta is a small resort removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Puerto Vallarta. My family travelled here the week prior to Christmas after many recommendations from others. The resort is well maintained and the staff are second to none! The food in the buffet is typical buffet fare but changed enough. The beach grill area has kid... More

Just got back from a week at the Samba. We spent New Years Eve there and they had a great party with a 10 piece (or more) band and fireworks.
