We travelled as a couple without any kids Jan 3 to 10th. Family is probably this resorts strong point. First the positives : The staff were above average in all aspects. The resort is clean and is set up very well if you have kids and would have very good access if you are dissabled. Also the seating areas and...

With a family reunion of 32 of us, Samba Vallarta was the perfect place to stay. It was smaller, with only one pool area, which worked perfectly for our family. Other places we've stayed have been much bigger, so it made it hard to keep track of everyone. The pool area activities were great. We were involved in water aerobics,...

We stayed at this resort for the second time from November 27th- Dec 7th. Family of four with two teen daughters. Most of the staff has remained the same from last year when we went. The rooms are clean and the maids are excellent. I have read a few reviews where people have said that they are not clean but...

We had a wonderful time at the Samba. Met wonderful people there. This is a resort for families with younger kids, around 1-12. The staff is the friendliest. The food was better than expected and there was always a lot. The desserts looked sooo good but not as much flavour. There is entertainment every night and it is wonderful. The...

We just came back from 2 week stay at the hotel, and overall it was a great vacation. Again, exellent and very friendly staff. The biggest advantage of this resort - it is never too busy. There are always chairs available on the beach or at the pool, and no line ups at the buffet. The 5 star Riu hotel...

Both of our sons and their families were at the in-laws, so we saw this a chance to spend Christmas together n a fun atmosphere. First word of advice is NOT to stop and listen to the "Time Share" pitches; you have to run a mob to get through that part of the airport. When we arrived at the hotel,...

We stayed two weeks at the Samba and were treated like royality. The activities staff were the best I have ever had along with the cleaning staff, bar service, dinning room staff and management staff. Everyone was totally friendly, helpful and the service was incredible. I left my camera at the dinning room table and didn't notice it was missing...

We went to the Samba for a week in August 2008 (me and husband-no children as we are child-free). Well-I decided to write a review for the Samba since we are going back again in Jan 2009. I guess you could say we liked it... I read a ton of reviews before going and have to say they were very...

We stayed at Samba Vallarta with a couple of friends Dec. 11-14, 2008. We only paid $600/person (including airfare), so we weren't expecting much. The hotel itself is nice and the staff is very friendly. The pool is quite large and clean. The beach area is nice with plenty of huts for shade and lounge chairs. Our rooms were okay....
