Hotel Samba
Ranked #86 of 124 Hotels in Lloret de Mar
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The hotel was all we needed it to be, plenty of sunbeds and good measures with the drinks all resonably priced.
The rooms were clean and functionable.
The food was not great and we ate at mcdonalds most nights- if you like 3 veriations of pork you will be ok! No salad dressings for the limited salad they had, chips chips and more cold chips!
The security guard was very agressive even if you were quiet he shouted at you!

Room Tip: Do not go here if you are physically impared, lots of stairs

Staff are unhelpful and rude. When I checked in, which happened to be quite late at night I asked where I was able to get something to eat and they were unable to tell me, they didn't direct me to the stairs or lifts so that I could find my room, they didn't explain breakfast times and where the restaurant was - it was a guessing game! Beware of Ramon, the angry fat bald security man that works over night, he gets aggressive and pushes you around, (even women!!)when you come in late at night. Avoid staying here

i dont get why so many people are putting this hotel down, maybe they are old and dont like alot of noise!! yeah the hotel is quite noisy at times with people partying but come on we are all on holiday and enjoying ourselves!! the food was nice and always something to eat, maybe a bit repetive on some days but what do you expect. Pool was great for adults and kids, room was cleaned daily. Me my husband and two kids had a great holiday and wold return again. You get what you pay for which for us 890 quid all inclusive including flightsd and tranfers for a family of four was great if you want 4* then pay 4* prices!! There was a couple of downsides like 1 drink per person but once they get to know you and know you are a family then you was allowed more and pool not opening til 10 but thinking about it we didnt get up til 9 most days so 10 is good really lol. Alot of ppl where saying they dont likem the english , i found if you treat them with respect then they treat you the same!!!!!

Arrived at 11.00 room was ready but had to wait till 1.00 for ai wristband then it was one drink per person. Food was not to bad ive had worse rooms were clean and it was only the maids that were freindly the rest of the staff didnt seem to like the english. The pool didnt open till 10.oclock and people were waiting at the gates so it was a mad rush to get a sunbed.Lots of students who were very noisy running up and down the corridors at night banging on doors and shouting.Been once wont be going back if you want a quiet relaxing holliday dont go.

we arrived at the hotel and it looked nice,there was a nice foyer and we went to our room which was basic but comfortable,all we could hear when we went on the balcony though were german and other foreigners shouting and playing music VERY LOUD,we went down to eat but the food was vile so we had to eat out that night,undetered we went to the bar for a drink but there was only 1 person serving on the bar and the queue was over 40 people in it,when i finally got served i was told only 1 drink at a time as i was all inc,i went and sat down if you could find a table that was clean and not with half drunk drinks on,i never went to the bar again as i was not going to waste half my night in a queue so we all went into town,all in all we stayed 3 days and that was 3 days too long it was dated and staff were not friendly dont go there is all i can say

The hotel itself was lovely, The food was RANCID! we had to eat out for every meal. The Dining room was very hot and stuffy.The 2nd day of our trip 3x coaches of German students arrived. It was extremely loud all day and for most of the night.The staff didn't care about the noise.

Have just spent a week here all inclusive with my 5 year old grandson and we both enjoyed ourselves overall.
Good points
- a good variety of food at mealtimes frequently replenished.
- all staff were friendly to my grandson and he enjoyed going up to the bars to get his drink or ice-cream
- it felt safe enough for him to go off with his friends to the park area or small pool while I was able to sit on my lounger with my book
- good measures in both the ready made cocktails and spirit plus mixer options
- stag parties were generally fun but respectful
- rooms were kept clean
- we were in one of the refurbished rooms on the 5th floor that also had a good view of the sea

Negative points
- the one drink rule. At the beginning of the week I could get both mine and my grandsons but later in the week I was told that I could only get one or the other.
- length of queues for drinks
- the pool bar has no juices only beer or fizzy drinks
- limited children's entertainment or starting very late
- music catering mainly for older customers who enjoy ballroom dancing
- on last night there was a large mixed group of young people who were very loud both in and outside hotel, this was particularly unwelcome as our transfer was at 04.30 and room was over the front of the hotel.
