We had to change our plans from Cozumel this year. We had stayed at the hotel approx. 18 months ago and had a wonderful time! We decided to try it again and darned it all, they got even better!.... The staff is A+++ in making you feel at home. The service is terrific (Martin and crew at the bars, Rigoberta... More

My husband and I stayed at the Samba in November. We found the resort to be very clean, friendly and very accomodating. Other reviews mentioned the dampness. It was damp but you have to leave your airconditioner on, we found if we turned it off then it got damp. Lots of activity going on, exercises, volleyball, ping pong, etc. The... More

We had so much fun at the Samba. We took our two teens with us and they stayed busy from sun up to sun down. If you don’t get involved in the activities you’re missing out. The shows are funny and the activities people go out of their way to show you a good time. We would go back to... More

Stayed at the Samba from 11-3 to 11-10. We were going to go to Isla Mujeres, but had to change at the last minute because of Wilma. Glad we picked the Samba! It was just what we were looking for. It has a beautiful beach with miles and miles of nice soft sand, spectacular sunsets and great waves. The sand... More

The Samba Vallarta, or Solare as we knew it, was ok. For the price we paid, we certainly drank that back at the bar! The food wasnt fab. I liked the nice assortment at breakfast, lunch at the pool bar and grill was yummy, but dinner wasnt that good. I found myself eatting salad and crackers for dinner most nights,... More

We just returned after 5 days at the Samba Vallarta with a good weight loss. Not only was the food horrible, 6 out of 8 of us ended up being very sick after the second day. On a good note, the staff could not work any harder and try to make sure everyone has a good time. It is kept... More

This is NOT the place to go if you want an all inclusive that includes anything beyond drinks and terrible food. The staff is resonably friendly when you can find them, but they all seem to have different ideas of what is going on. The italian restaurant was open one day during our 8 day stay. The buffet was awful.... More

My husband & I stayed at the Samba the for a week in Sept. Be aware, Mexico is a very humid & hot vacation spot. The humidity at first was a shock. None of our clothes completely dried, but we were in our swimsuits most of the time. Sept. is their rainy season, but the good thing is it only... More
