We stayed at this resort from March 1st to March 8th. We have travelled to Puerto Vallarta for 12 years in a row, and always change resort every year. This is the first time that I can say that we will be returning to the Samba next year, maybe even twice. All the staff are great, rooms are clean, food... More

My family and I stayed at the Samba the last week in January. I have two small children. Positives: The staff was terrific. They were very friendly and went out of the way to help. The grounds were simple, but very well maintained. The pool was very nice and the beach is excellent. Our second room was very nice. I... More

I stayed for one week at Samba with a friend from Feb 19 to 27, 2006. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and they all seemed to understand English perfectly well. We didn't spend alot of time at the resort as we had family staying in Buecerias, so we went to vist them and tour with them most... More

My wife and I just returned from a one-week stay at the Samba Vallarta(Feb 20-27). All things considered, we had a wonderful time. This was our first all-inclusive experience, so we didn't have much of a reference point as to what to expect. We have travelled and lived throughout Southeast Asia, so our tolerance for substandard conditions might be higher... More

My husband and I and our two children ages 17 and 5 stayed at the Samba Feb 17 - 24, 2006. We weren't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews, but were pleasantly surprised with what we experienced there. We left Canada 3 hours late due to the extremely cold weather causing problems with the airplane. It... More

My family and I just returned from a weeks vacation at the Samba Vallarta in Nuevo Vallarta. The experience was awesome. The staff goes way beyond anything we expected, to ensure a comfortable stay. The entire facility was spotless, especially our room (thanks Susy). The food was excellent. Our best vacation ever. It's comparatively small size ( I think 180... More

A buddy and I stayed at the Samba last year, and overall we found the place to be a wonderful getaway for people that like to just hang by the beach and have some cervesas. We're heading back to the hotel in about 3 weeks. Front Desk Staff: Honestly one of the only poor aspects of the hotel the last... More

I just got back from a week at the Samba Vallarta and enjoyed my stay. My new wife was a little less thrilled, but overall it was a good bargain. Let's start with the positives: 1.) The beach is excellent and the view is beautiful. You won't have to fight for space in the sand. The scenery is outstanding. I'm... More

My wife and I just spent the first week of February at the Samba Vallarta. We were a bit apprehensive after I read several very negative reports about the hotel. But we were agreeably surprised, starting at the very friendly check-in. Our room was large and bright with some ocean view. We had two delicious dinners at each the Mexican... More

I agree 100% with the review written by the person from Toronto on Feb. 10/06. This resort was great! My husband and I along with our two children ages 11 and 13 had a fantastic time. The buffet was very good and the kids always found something they liked. The Italian restaurant was also good but we didn't make it... More
