We just returned from our fourth trip to Vallarta. This was my favourite hotel. The hotel was clean, the staff was extremely friendly & hard working....leave them a tip....they work so hard. I was disappointed to see we were one of the very few people to leave tips. This hotel is great for kids. They have two children's pool, one...

My family and I have just returned from a week at Samba!! What a great week. It is a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it. The facility is warm and friendly with that "I feel like I'm at home" atmosphere. The staff is the reason why. Salvador, we LOVE you! We can't wait to go back!

Before going to the resort, I was apprehensive because it had only 4 stars. However, I was very impressed with the staff at the resort for accommodating my daughter with her limited food choices. My daughter is allergic to dairy, eggs, soya, and all nuts. Even though I had brought snacks and rice milk for her, the restaurants were very...

Just returned from a 9 day vacation with our 2 daughters and their families. We enjoyed the size of the resort which allowed our grandchildren to always be in close proximity with us, and yet have the freedom to have an awesome time. The pool was great and loved that the beach was so close. The beach was awesome! Our...

This was a nice small resort with all of the usual amenities. We had an enjoyable relaxing stay there. The rooms had all of the things you would want in a resort room. There was a safe which works with a code that you set, and internet in the lobby area free of charge. The only thing lacking was that...

On a good note, the staff are friendly and do provide excellent service. The food is bland and can use a little pick-me-up. We visited other restaurants at least once/day. The bathroom could use some behind the door cleaning and there is a musty odor in the bedroom. Compared to the RIU it does not have that sparkle and sense...
