Reviewed September 29, 2010

The four of us went all inclusive, enjoying all the hotel had to offer, both the rooms were more than adequate but most of all very clean and inviting. The food was oncoming with a wide variety of choices. Drinks flowed and great to see them served in plastic cups keeping to a safe environment at all times. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Areas outside the hotel was great with a short walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beach. Would definately revisit and a great holiday.... Don't listen to the negative reviews as it is good value for money and you get what you pay for..................

Just returned on 22nd Sep after a relaxing week at the Samba All Inclusive,first impressions after reading reviews when we got there were good ones.A large hotel on a slight hill(our son is disabled and coped well)although the pool has a lot of steps down and would be very difficult if you were in a wheelchair or similarly resticted.Excellent pool area with lifeguard, loads of beds and room and a fantastic pool bar/snacks etc.Rooms cleaned and towels replaced daily,rooms show some signs of age but are more than comfortable and red hot water at any time.All the lifts x3 worked all the time and we asked for low level room but were on the 4th floor,didn't matter though as the lifts were great.The food was more than expected and was of a good standard (we have been AI in other places and this was the best).Entertainment was running down but there was an effort made and we had some laugh's.The English Pub in the basement is great, it opens when the bars upstairs close and is night club music style and is very comfortable.The hotel is on the hill between Lorret and Fenals which both have huge beaches and all the normal bars and resteraunts etc.Summing up we would definately return and would reccomend this hotel and area to all.
We were a family of 7 ranging 16yrs disabled to Dad at nearly 70 and loved it,harsh reviews I feel are unfounded and don't be put off it was a fantstic holiday.

Firstly can i say, to all the people who moaned about this hotel, get a life!!! This hotel was fab. Yes the entertainment could have been better, but was funny if you had a sense of humour. The food was lovely, and the people who moaned about it, i would love to come to your house and see what you have for meals every day, it must be fantastic!! Our room was spotless, air con worked great, towels changed every day, beds made etc. The staff were only rude to people who were rude to them (and there were a lot of them), also people seem to think that just because they are all inclusive, they dont have to tip the bar staff. Any waiting on and bar staff expect tips, and the staff there work long hours and extremely hard. So can you imagine working there all day every day, putting up with ignorant and rude customers, some who cant even manage a please and thank you, and not even getting a tip! i wouldnt do it. The pool was clean, and was even tested for cleanliness while we were there. The lifeguard worked from 10am until everyone left the pool area (which was after 8pm a few nights).

The only one thing that did spoil our holiday were the French, they have to be the rudest people i have ever met. They had no manners, and wouldnt think twice about pushing you out the way to get into the lift. They also couldnt grasp the fact that you have to queue, and thought they had the god given right to just walk to the front. My daughter was actually assaulted by one of the children in the pool. None of this was the hotels fault though

All in all we had a great time, and made some great friends. We wouldnt go back to Lloret as we didnt think it was for families really, but please dont listen to all the moaners on here. Its really NOT that bad. I know everyone says it, but your holiday is what you make it, and in my opinion some people should just stay at home and be bloody miserable, and dont be going on holiday and spoiling everyone elses time.

I was at the hotel last October with a group of people and only remembering to report my experiences. And before i start to complain, I understand it is a budget hotel and didnt expect much, but even though it was cheap it really was terrible!
We were initially greeted by unorganized and quite frankly rude reception staff who had got our room requests wrong. This was soon 95% resolved...apart from my room, which i was sharing with 3 other guys and they told us this was no problem, when they had "prepared" our room, we found it to be 3 single beds pushed together into a room not big enough to be a closet! The hotel was noisy due to maintance work going on also.
We ate food on the first night, which was disgusting, and made some of us feel ill, this was the only meal i ate in the hotel due to it being utter crap!!!!
Location isnt the best either, the first nights sleep was disturbed by a full on gang fight in the street below our balcony, which was also occupied by multiple prostitues and drug dealers!
Positive notes, average pool, few nice resteraunts and bars/clubs close by.

Staff- Rude
Food- Horrible
Rooms- Tiny
Value for money- they should be paying you to endure it!

Honestly im not exaggerating, this wasnt a holiday, it was more like hell! Avoid like the plague!
