This was our third trip to PV and our third stay at Samba. We think it's a fabulous place to stay for a family. I've already written a review after our first trip and I'm sticking to it: -- immaculate grounds, clean rooms, the kids love the food, decent entertainment, amazing view, great beach, friendly staff. What prompted me to...

Seriously, so dissapointing. I always read all the reveiws and it looked like a 50/50 chance so we took it. Be aware that you will most likely be the only people not mexican there. Apparently they are giving locals a swinging deal because they are not filling to capacity. The room was sooooooooo musty so i went to the front...

We always welcome all the guests’ feedback. We are happy to inform that some of the rooms that had problems with the humidity have been fully repaired. Riviera Nayarit is known for its wide variety of wildlife and is protected by the government; however we are installing nets in the access to the restaurant in order to prevent the birds...

This place was terrible!! Upon entering our room we all knew immediately we made a mistake! The room stunk, there were no screens on our ground level room so we couldn't even open the window to air the smell out! When asking for an air freshener the front desk said, "air freshener for suites only"! What???? When they say "for...

I was at the Samba last week. I should start by saying that I am easy to please and as long as there is nice weather, cold drinks and a pleasant athmosphere...i am happy. This is my 4th time to Mexico and typically do last minute travels on a budget through Apple Vacation last minute deals. The trip to the...

We booked Samba Vallarta through Orbitz when we were searching for all-inclusive deals for a bachelorette party (a group of 7). We researched a bit and read a few of the reviews regarding mostly food complaints, but figured for the price we were paying, it wouldn't be too bad. After I chatted with someone about Puerto Vallarta, we decided to...

A lot of the reviews you read below are helpful. They give you a taste of what the experience was like from different perspectives. I personally did not want to go to the Samba, but the other half of my party did. Went went as 4, me and my wife, sister and mother. We arrived and went through the timeshare...

Before we took our Easter vacation trip to Samba, I researched on Trip Advisor. I wanted to know what to look out for, etc. I must say, most of the negative reviews I read were true. There were four things that stood out for me: horrible service, disgusting rooms, chaos all around, and bad food. 1. Service: Arriving to the...

The beach and view are great! After that it goes downhill fast. Breakfast was enjoyed by all of us. However the milk was usually warm, and the there always seemed to be a wait for them to refill the food. Not enough waiters at any meal to get you drinks or refills. There were many times that we waited for...

If you enjoy eating food on your vacation, Samba is a place you'll want to avoid. I'll admit that I'm a picky eater, but good lord. All the food that is supposed to be hot will be cold by the time it hits your plate, which will probably be very dirty. Everything looks so presentable and nice but the selection...

This was my 4th time coming to PV, and 7th time coming to Mexico. I have previously stayed at the Allego, and Royal Decameron in PV, so I'm not a picky traveler. I usually don't stay in anything over a 3.5 or 4 star hotel. Overall, I was not impressed with this resort. I will give you the high's and...
