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

I am sixteen years old and I have visited the Samba Vallarta resort for two years now. My family and I go in the winter and we could not ask for better weather. As for the resort, it is amazing. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful. The buffet food could be better but the restaurant and mexican... 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. STAFF: As everyone has said and which I can support, the people who work there are for the most part fantastic, always with a smile and a warm greeting and... More

We travelled to the Samba on Christmas Eve booking through Traveolcity. We had a late flight landing at 8.45, but from start to finish the holiday was perfect. Once we arrived at the airport, we went straight through immigration with no trouble, luckily our bags came off pretty quickly and we walked through customs to be whisked away by our... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the (Solare) Samba Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta last February (2004). We hated to leave and look forward to a return visit sometime in the future. The hotel and the surrounding area is beautiful and relaxing. The view of the sunset at the (Solare) Samba is absolutely breathtaking. What a beautiful memory... More

Stayed here three nights December 15th to the 18th. Food was quite good I thought-no one in our family got sick, and my wife is pretty sensitive to that sort of thing. Drinks were easy-actually too easy-got sloshed on too many stright shots. The beach here is quite nice for swimming and boogie-boarding. If you look at pictures of the... More

Good food served nearly round the clock, spotless rooms, and a staff that is very willing and helpful. Quiet beach location, (away from over-crowded Puerto Vallarta) and very ideal for the family. Activities for both kids and adults. The all-inclusive aspect is wonderful. Bar drinks with or w/o alcohol served from 10 AM and beyond until 1:00 AM. Plusses: big... More

We debated staying here after reading some of the reviews but the price was right and we figured we could leave if we weren't happy. Well, we loved it. The room was huge and the maid service great. I know we brought sand in but each day it was swept up and the maid left our washcloth in the shape... More

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
