We've been to puerto vallarta many times, but this was our first stay at this resort. Normally we look for a larger resort but decided on this one based on the positive reviews. We were extremely happy with the service. Salvador took care of us at the pool every day, frequently checking to see if there was anything we needed....

This is the kind of place that you want to come back to every year. This is my fourth visit over the past 15 years and many of the bartenders and wait staff have been here the whole time. They get to know you and remember you to treat you very well.

I agree with the other posts here. I came here with my family in November of last year and will be back. Small resort, large charm!! Can't wait to go back again. I'm used to Cuba and thought it wouldn't be better, but thoroughly enjoyed our trip!! I'll be back and can't wait!

The food is wonderful, from the little lady that made my cheese omelet perfectly to Alex, Gilberto, and Alejandro in the Venezia dining room (You got to have the coffee flambe). The only reason I gave an average rating is that our room air conditioner and the toilet failed several times. The staff is very kind and helpful. Alma our...

As most people have stated in other reviews- this is not your glitzy resort, its a quiet, small place to relax and unwind. We loved that we could find a beach chair and pool chair anytime we wanted. The ocean was warm and breeze fantastic. The room was a hotel room- very clean, but nothing fancy. The food was good,...

I'm a little late writing this, but seeing as people are starting to book for the winter I wanted to share our experience. 6 of us called the Samba home for 10 days in late January early February of 2016. Definitely a smaller resort than we're used to, but we really enjoyed the fact that everything was close, and you...

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...
