After spending countless hours on this site reading review after review on so many different resorts I felt it was my duty to write a review of the resort we decided to stay at. After all it was as a result of so many positive writeups of the Samba that we decided to stay there. This was our first (my... More

I stayed at Samba Vallarta from Nov 17th-Dec2nd. Samba was wonderful in a lot of ways, and not so wonderful in some. But with every trip you can't expect things to go 100%. That would be unreasonable. Upon our arrival we were supposed to be checked in the day before, our flight was late so we ended up having to... More

We stayed at the Samba from Nov.25-Dec. 2' 07. We went with our daughter, son-in-law, and their 3 children. This resort was picked because it was family orientated and allowed all 3 children to stay in the same room as their parents. We didn't decide to acompany them until after they had already booked. We were very lucky when we... More

This was my third stay at Samba and I am sad to say apart from the excellent service staff the hotel has gone down hill a bit. They have redone the buffet which was an improvement but the food was not up to par, it was pretty well the same all week with very few variations. The breakfast sausages appeared... More

We have just returned from a week at the Samba. I want to first say that i think the staff is the best thing that happened on the stay. The room was musty and i think my wife caught something from the air conditioners, The musty smell must be the filters or lack of service. The food was a downhill... More
