I booked Samba through a last-minute getaway for my birthday and it was an overall great experience.
Room: We requested a room with a pool/ocean view but instead got a view of the tennis court of a neighbouring hotel. We tried to request a new room every morning for the first 4 days, but kept getting the run around so it never happened. The room itself was spacious, had a balcony and very clean - unfortunately, housekeeping never came at the same time each day, which was annoying when we wanted to get into our room.
Location/Atmosphere & Security: The hotel was in a great location - right on the beach, about a 10 minute taxi ride from Puerto Vallerta. Before I left my family was concerned that I was going to Mexico, but it was very safe: they account for you whenever you leave the hotel and ensure you get back safely. It had a great mix of local and foreign guests and the staff was amazing - shout-outs to Jose, Jesus and Roberto :)
Food & Drink: The buffet wasn't the best, but had a wide variety so you won't go hungry (especially with Lore's delicious omelettes!) - plus there are great restaurants in the area. We tried to book the hotel restaurant a few times, but never seemed to wake up early enough to do so.
Overall: I really loved this vacation; It was the first all inclusive for me and my boyfriend and we had a fun, relaxing time. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
