Looked at the reviews before we left, there where 14 of us and I think the only little moan I heard in three days was the food was a bit of a miss on day one, but after that it was fine, only other moan was about room partners snoring, lol. Hotel was absolutely fine, rooms were fine, showers worked, air con worked, all staff very pleasant, whole place cleaned daily, rooms done every day and we got extra pillows no problem, no, not the ritz but a good place to have a cheap break and I think anyone going there should agree. Was a bit of walk to sea front but if you go down main shopping street it does not seem to take long. But was not there for the beach.
Happy birthday Gibby.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your comment.
Just to let you know, there is another beach closer to the hotel: Fenals' beach. Just a 5 minute walk.

Kind regards.

Very pleased with this hotel. Took a 5 day all inclusive break to the Hotel Samba in February. The staff were very helpful. The food and drinks were excellent. Rooms were clean and fair size. Cannot comment on the swimming pool, as it was not open this time of year. Short distance to town to the beach, shops and bars. There are some fabulous coastal walks around too

Hotel was nice rooms were grand. No water in pool time of year.
Snack bar awful rank food.
Restaurant was hit and miss mate had a hairy chicken when he went to bite into it.

We had a good time as there was 11 of us however wudnt go at this time as the area was like a ghost twn and the hotel was full of pensioners.
We joined in with any games etc for a laugh..

It's true that the town is a lot quieter is winter, but there's always something to do.
From May our guests change, more family and school groups so the entertainment changes too.

Kind regards.

Which was fine as we wanted a jacuzzi and a bigger room. Food is hit and miss but overall clean, tidy and ok for the week. Stayed 7 nights with my husband. Not really much for families and more for the older end with afternoon tea dances etc. No real complaints and as far as a quieter hotel off the main roads it works.

Dear guest,

During the winter till mid May it's true that our main guests are pensioners. The rest of the year is all families and youngsters so the food and entertainment is different.

Kind regards.

We arrived at hotel samba at 12pm.. we had read terrible reviews and were a little apprehensive.
We only paid £140 for 3 nights all inclusive inc flights and therefore had realistically low expectations.
We were pleasantly surprised!!
It's a clean, decent and cheap hotel; our room was sufficient in size and cleaned daily. The staff were pleasant and accommodating.
Breakfast was decent but the other meals were not great- the hotel mainly attracts older Spanish couples and this is reflected in the food they provide- traditional spanish salads/bean dishes etc. As well as the entertainment (somewhat lacking)
There are an abundance of restaurants in the local area and it was reasonably priced.
Unfortunately the pool was closed (it had been cleaned ready for the season) it was a good size and looked incredibly clean!
Balconies are of a good size and being on the sixth floor we had a great view. I would stay here again for a cheap place to rest your head... don't expect 5 star if you only pay for 2!!!
There are lovely beaches and coves in the local area- sangria and champagne goes down well in the sunshine too.
We also took a boat trip to tossa del mar- if you're into culture and history its a must :) roman remains dating back thousands of years!!
I got the distinct feeling that the resort is far livelier in peak season... not really for me but I enjoyed the area and would return at a similar time next year!

Thank you for your comment.

The pool is open from May till September and yes Lloret is more lively in peak season, however, there is always something to do during the rest of the year.

We hope to see you again.

Kind regards.

Recently returned from a week booked through Shearings. The hotel was clean, the food was plentiful and varied. For £200 all inclusive with 3 trips thrown in, what can you expect.
Yes some of the food was luke warm - as it is everywhere else in Europe, including the usual 4 star hotels we usually stay in.
Yes the double bed was 2 singles pushed together, a usual expectation in Europe and other countries - no big deal.
No there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room - also in line with everywhere else in Europe. We always take our own so that we can have a cuppa in the morning.
We asked for an extra pillow after dinner on our first evening and it was in our room by the time we went to bed - excellent service.
The room was cleaned every day but the towels in the bathroom could have done with renewing, they were a bit like large tea towels. Also there was no shower gel or shampoo supplied.
The snacks in the bar area were cold, hence the microwave made available. Honestly though, who would need snacks after eating 3 other meals during the day.
One female member of the bar staff was extremely rude but most staff were delightful.
Mealtimes could be a bit chaotic, especially (as mentioned my another subscriber), there were a couple of youth football teams in residence who were a bit noisy at times.
There is not much soundproofing in the hotel and noise from one room to another was quite noticable.
The hotel communal areas were really not big enough for a hotel of 400 rooms.
All in all though, good value for money - I have been to worse and paid more.
If you travel with Shearings, expect it to be mainly older people travelling, don't go as a family.

Room Tip: Pick rooms on the higher floors, less noise and better views

Having recently returned from this hotel I can only say we had a great time. Yes we had French students, Italians, Spanish and british but during the evening we all had fun joining in the dancing .As for the hotel food acceptable, rooms cleaned daily, towels changed and staff helpful. A lot of negative comments relate to the snacks but who needed snacks when you had three main meals daily. For the money we paid we did not expect the ritz and was aware that most of lloret would be closed.
