We just returned from the Samba on Christmas day after spending one week, (as my daughter mentioned in the previous review) it was a wonderful family vacation. The food was excellent, and the activities made taking any outside excursions difficult to consider as we enjoyed the programs on the property so much. The activity and sports staff is top notch....

We had a great relaxing, fun vacation at the Pueblo Bonita/samba vallarta. The resort is very comfortable, clean, and full of activity and excitement if you wanted it...beautiful beach and pools. We travelled the week before x-mas with our 3 daughters, who's ages range from 14-11-5 yrs old. There was something for everyone there to keep busy and active with.... More

This trip to Mexico was the best time of my life, and the Samba Resort made it that much better. With only 180 rooms the poolside wasn't crowded at all, which made it very relaxing. The staff was excellent, activity directors, waiters, and bartenders were so much fun to be around. The activities that were offered were a blast, such... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a vacation where we could relax the whole time. That is exactly what we got. True, there is nothing close by if you want something to do, but if you are looking to sit by the pool or on the beach, this was perfect. We were able to go at our own pace.... More

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at the Samba (Solare) hotel and enjoyed ourselves on both trips. Unlike one other comment, we found this hotel exceptional!! The beach is great and cleaned every night, the food was buffet but there was still a wide variety, the rooms were very clean and the housekeepers always left a towel... More

Our family of 5 has just returned from our stay at the Samba Vallarta. We were so pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness (the staff seem to be cleaning morning to night...the place is immaculate!), the location (fantastic pool area, showers/bathrooms nearby, El Mexicana pool bar/restaurant for lunches, and the beach a stone's throw away!), and the staff. The staff at... More

Our family just returned from a week at the Samba Resort, what a great place! The grounds were beautiful, the service was excellent and the staff made us feel very welcome. My three daughters age 9, 11, and 13 had fun playing water volleyball, kayaking, boogey boarding, ping pong, arts and crafts and more. The activities staff were excellent with... More

My husband and I just returned from the Samba Resort. We met our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren there (ages 9 & 10.) First impression on arriving was how breath-taking the grounds and overall views was. The pools and beaches were clean and the landscaping was beautiful. Our room was amazing; great ocean and pool view. The actividads staff was wonderful.... More

Just stayed at this property (Oct 2004) for a wedding. Didn't expect much, given the low star rating but I think new management has taken control and our stay was indeed very enjoyable. Property is older, with signs of aging, but painting and other updates were going on around us all the time. Large rooms with nice ocean views. Food... More

We enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this smaller resort. The smallness of it allowed us to get to know other guests as well as staff by name. The room was fine and was always well-kept by the maids with special touches. Buffet and the 2 a la carte dinners were okay, but there were a few highlights: liquer coffee made... More
