This was our third trip to Puerto Vallarta and our fifth trip to Mexico. We were traveling with six adults (my husband' parents and his sister and brother-in-law). Overall, I feel like the reviews I've read of this resort have been pretty accurate. The biggest difference is that we felt the food was really, really lacking -- and that comes...

A great little spot, tucked away within some of the monster resorts such as the Riu, etc. Small and relatively quiet, with an uncrowded beach, and very friendly and helpful staff. Salvador in particular was fantastic - whether he was working the buffet/restaurant or working the afternoon beach bar service he always had a smile on his face. The grounds...

All staff mbrs were really friendly except for the older man at the bar near the beach. Ismael was exceptional. The hotel location and grounds were fantastic and great beach front but the hotel needs work. We stayed in room 232 and the air conditioner barely worked and the fan was very loud. No venting in the bathroom either

We stayed at the Samba last week. I read all the reviews on here and for the most part, they were pretty accurate. It's an older, smaller, family resort. If you are expecting anything luxury, you won't find it here. But the value for money was awesome, and they delivered far more than our expectations. The fabulous activities staff were...

Our third visit here in four years, and it just keeps getting better! We appreciate the smaller size of the Samba, which allows for a more intimate, relaxing and friendly resort atmosphere. The new food and beverage services manager, Ismael, is making many improvements, including a fresh smoothie bar at breakfast. There is something for everyone at the buffet, and...

Let me say first off that the Sambas strengths lie in an amazing beach, great pools, and great staff that serve you, and keep the grounds clean. The food selection, was hit and miss. One day would be above average, and on Valentines Day, the food was deficient taste, and supply of critical staples, despite the huge effort in having...

This was our second visit to the Samba. Size and location are great for us. We enjoy the quieter atmosphere. We stayed Jan. 26 - Feb. 2/17. A little disappointed with our room - 1st floor, facing a wall, noisy at night because of the music from next door. Hoping for better as we were return guests. Keeping the a/c...

Had some concerns when we arrived, looked a little rundown. However quickly changed our minds upon walking in. A lovely little local resort, with superb service, the wait staff keep drinks coming, really enjoyed the food, best chiliqiles I've ever had. Can definitely tell its locally owned and operated, wonderful mexican environment. Wifi was at its best in the lobby,...
