We visited the All Inclusive Samba Vallarta by Pueblo Bonito June 26 through July 1, 2008. This hotel is in a “hotel zone” on the Banderas Bay. This is a very small resort in comparison with others we have been to. This resort caters to Mexicans, about 50%, and American/Canadians, about 50%. This review will be based on our previous...

Samba is great for a wide range of individuals, especially families. They have a large staff to maintain the property and I found it to always be clean. The resort is more authentic to Mexico then probably one of the larger - newer chain resorts. I found Samba to be comfortable and inviting. The social activity staff does a wonderful...

What you get for the money is very commendable. We prefer the smaller resorts, and this one was above average. The hotel is fairly old, however, the grounds are well maintained...gorgeous! The furniture in the rooms is out-dated, and not in great condition, but you are rarely in there anyways. I saw no bats, which actually upset me because we...

The overall hotel was nice and very clean. The staff was great and did a good job. The biggest disappointment was the dining. If you chose to eat at the buffett, breakfast, lunch or dinner, you had to fight the flies and the 90 degree heat and humidity. The lobby and lobby bar was also not air conditioned. The pool...

Just back from a week at the Samba - June 21-28. I had read a lot of reviews and was a bit anxious, but overall, I think the negative reviews were unfounded. The hotel is older, but is well maintained and clean. The beach is beautiful and one of the only resorts that has palapas on the beach to give...

It seems that most of the reviews are pretty accurate to my experience. I hope that my perspective may be of assistance to some travellers. Positives: 1.
