We are been going to the Samba now for about 8 years. The reason we continue to return is the staff! They are courteous, attentive and very friendly - if they can do it, they will. Martin and Jose at the beach bar, Burno in the lobby were always ready with a drink and a smile. Ricardo, Genero, Ishmael in...

I had the great fortune of staying at this small resort which met all of my expectations, rather surpassed them.

As a Travel Agent I am blessed to see quite a variety of properties. The Samba is clean, enjoyable family resort with more than sufficient amenities for families with young children. It would not do well for business travelers as the internet is not available easily in the rooms. The staff was amazing! Juan Carlos Parra as Front Desk Manager...

Loved the food and staff. Rooms are a tad dated but super clean and just 'ask and you shall receive'. Felt welcomed and safe. The beach was great and walking distance to Bucerías. Pool was great. Night time entertainment was ok and very very family oriented. Went with friends but I'd definitely take my kids here. If you're looking for...
