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... More

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.

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.
