Alright, where shall I begin. I stayed here with my boyfriend from November 17, 2007-November 24, 2007. We had an overall amazing time on our trip, both at the hotel, on the beaches, in Puerto Vallarta and on our excursions. The hotel itself is old, it needs some major upgrading, but for the price we paid, we definately got our...

Just got back last night from 5 days at the Samba. The pool was great, the beach was great. The beach is just steps away from the pool. Not crowded at all. Good entertainment. Perfect weather. The food was ok. Feel free to email me, [-]

Went to Samba from 5/29/08-6/3/08. My husband and I were disappointed with the establishment. The 2nd floor room was quite old and always smelled like mildew. In addition, our clothes/towels were quite damp throughout our stay and the fixtures/bathroom were old and stained. While the air conditioning was always on, it did little to help with the dampness and smell....

First let me tell you to not be scared away from some of the negative reviews of the Samba. I was becoming a little leary myself before we left , as I was responsible for choosing the Samba for our entire group (19 people - four different families) ! However, we all had a great vacation. Also this is not...

First of all my wife and I are seasoned travelers. We have stayed at many "All Inclusive" resorts in Mexico. We always refer to tripadvisor before going to any resort. We normally throw out the reviews from reviewers that have never been to a All Inclusive before. You really need to experience different all inclusive resorts to judge them. Samba...

We stayed at the Samba Vallarta all-inclusive resort with our infant and one other couple and their toddler. We both booked rooms with balconies (both had tennis court views and views of the RIU Jalisco resort next door--looks nice but has more of a party crowd). Overall it was fairly clean, uncrowded, and met our needs/desires for the vacation we...

My wife and I have stayed at some 5 star resorts in the cancun areas over the years and have loved them. This year we took our kids along, booked last minute, and since we are a family of 5 and need to book 2 rooms, the $$$ and availability led us to take a stay at the Samba. Being...

Just got back from the Samba. This was our fourth all-inclusive trip to Mexico where we've experienced a range of hotels. I have to tell you the Samba is a great deal!

For the second year in a row my family (roughly 17 plus people from different states in the USA) has stayed at the Samba Vallarta By Pueblo Bonito.
