I uploaded a review on YouTube. Search for "Screw Bee Do, Samba" if you would like to see some video. Expedia won't let me include a link. Samba is a nice small resort. It's family friendly, so there were more kids than I would have preferred. The food wasn't spectacular. Reservations are required at the Italian/Mexican restaurant for dinner. The... More

Start with the staff....every single one was completely courteous and friendly. They went out of their way to be accommodating and made our stay very enjoyable. The bartenders were awesome, the entertainment was a pleasant surprise, and a special mention should be made of Alex and Gilberto in the Venezia restaurant as they were a treat every time we went....

Wow! This hotel really exceeded our expectations. It's a smaller all-inclusive property with charm and service that exceed many of the bigger rivals. The hotel was no smoking, which we appreciated. If your room is warm, just ask to have the AC adjusted and they will come lower it. Rooms were spacious enough. We were on the north side of... More

This hotel was perfectly set on the beach. The short walk to a lounger made relaxing even easier. I read 4 books! I know that sounds silly, but as a mom of 3 it was quite the accomplishment. :) It is a smaller family friendly hotel visited by many locals and Mexican families. If you are looking for a kid...

Samba hotel is a small, pleasant hotel. The beach is surrounded on both sides with majestic mountains. Although we wished the ocean water to be more calm and more Caribbean blue in colour, nonetheless it was an overall positive experience. Our kids (5 and 10) enjoyed spending time at the pool area, especially at the kids slides. As the previous... More

Where do I start. We have been trying to make it back once a year since 2005. One could pick apart little things like some guests have. My wife and family spend little time in our rooms.

It has magnificent offices, the shoreline is awesome and all the staff are very fun. The breakfasts are delectable and fluctuated and extremely decent eateries, truly they make you feel at home. the lodging is calm yet great vibes in light of the fact that as it is not huge, it is not immersed with individuals. I suggest it totally.
