Vacation Package Deals

  • Welcome to Samba Vallarta by Pueblo Bonito located in Riviera Nayarit (just outside of Puerto Vallarta) in Mexico. The Resort is located on Mexico`s Pacific Coast twenty minutes away from Puerto Vallarta, the Samba Vallarta has 180 rooms and its meticulously landscaped grounds separate the spectacular free form swimming pool from the four-story building that houses the hotels guestrooms. One-bedroom suites are excellent for families; the separate living area has a pull out sofa, fridge and microwave, and sleeps up to six in a room. The separate bedroom area has either one king, or two double beds. The bathroom is divided into separate shower, vanity, and toilet areas.

    The pool area of Samba Vallarta overlooks the ocean - it’s only a few steps down to the wide sandy Pacific beach, a great place to soak up the sun, bargain for some local crafts, sea kayak, or splash around in the mild cool surf. The pool area is the main centre of daytime activity, generally offering couples and families relatively quiet rest and relaxation. Flamingos Golf Club is a short five minute ride away, where you can enjoy the 64 hundred yard par 72 championship course.

My mom and I stayed at Samba Vallarta in April and had a great time! Our room was clean and bright, the view was beautiful, and the staff were fantastic. Israel, Deisy, Fransisco, Paulo, and Salvador were a few of the staff that made our stay that much nicer. The food was good -- not amazing, but we didn't go for the food. It was the perfect place for a quick get-away. We would definitely go back!

My daughter has had diarrhea for two days. She’s two years old and doesn’t use diapers anymore. We actually live in Mexico just a few hours away from the hotel and we asked to cancel the very last night so we could just go home and we were told we needed to contact our travel agency even though we made the reservation directly through sambas webpage. I called the number that was given on the reservations and they told us that we needed to deal directly with the hotel so when I went to the front desk again I was told I needed to call the page. So after getting the runaround we were told that since there is no cancellation policy in existence that means we can’t cancel or change the dates. On one website the hotel states that two children under 12 years old are free and once we got to the hotel we were told that the eight-year-old was not free and had to pay another 2000 pesos. I had made the reservation and paid a little bit more in order to be able to cancel and now they were telling me that that is not true, that there can be no canceling or changes to an existing reservation. If I had known that I would have just paid for the non-refundable room and save myself the same amount that I would be losing by canceling. We travel all over the world, The staff here is very very friendly and I think that is one of their only saving graces. The pools are warm or heated but they are not very clean and the food is mediocre, the desserts are not very good at all. The hotel lobby is on the second floor with a lot of open windows and I have seen a bunch of kids running around of course unsupervised and it could be a very dangerous area for a fall to happen. Our family speaks both English and Spanish but if you don’t speak Spanish the majority of the staff does speak English. The staff I would definitely give five stars but the hotel itself is probably about a three and the food about 2.5. I have never had a soda with carbonation in it yet, I don’t know if something is wrong with the machine or if it is because I drink diet Pepsi and they just use plastic bottles poured into cups

Samba Vallarta By Pueblo Bonito is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable Have been wanting to try this resort for a few years, due to reviews that I have read. It did not disappoint! Staff were excellent and the resort exceeded my expectations. Only complaint we have is that during activities at he pool the volume of the loudspeakers was MUCH TOO HIGH!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samba Vallarta We were looking for a relaxing place for a week vacation and this was the perfect place for us. This is our second time coming to Samba and we will be definitely coming back. The resort is placed in a great location with enough amenities. The beach is great with a lot of chairs. I can't say enough about the staff. The resort has a great team that does everything to make your stay very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Friendly staff We got back about 2 weeks ago and would definitely stay there again. The hotel is smaller and a bit older, but they make up for it by the extremely friendly staff who are ready to do anything for you. The food is great and the coffee is wonderful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Barely a 3 star, definately NOT a 4 star We just returned Thursday from a week at the Samba Vallarta. It was very disappointing. The rooms were moldy and smelly and moist. The buffet was terrible. Not much variety, food seems recycled at dinner buffet from lunch buffet. Tons of noisy families and slamming of hallway doors and moving of furniture from 730am until 1 am. Do not go here if you want rest/peace/quiet as it will be the total opposite. We asked for a balcony, don't get the 4th floor because its a solid concrete wall and you cant see over it if you are seated on the balcony. This hotels only good things are the friendly staff and nice beach area. That is it! My boyfriend and I also got sick and staffs first response was... WAS IT THE FOOD? I'm sure its not the first time they have had sick people there. Very big waste of money and a week of vacation and we will never stay there nor recommend anyone stays there. I read tons of trip advisor reviews and I don't understand how anyone can enjoy their stay here unless they are just drunk from the booze and that made the food taste better? I just don't get it. There is nothing nearby this hotel for restaurants or shopping unless you take a bus or taxi... we felt trapped here. We actually contemplated every day on paying out of pocket for a new hotel or just buying a one way ticket back home... every single day.. I wish we had rather than hoping the next day would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hotel is older, staff, food and drinks were excellent The room itself was not overly clean and very damp and the bathroom smelt bad.. but that was the only downfall of the resort. The food was excellent, good drinks, and beautiful beach. The night shows were awesome especially since it was a small resort. The staff was absolutely amazing. They remember your name and drinks and made my time there memorable. I would not recommend this resort if you are wanting to party because it is small and an older crowd. But if you always having a spot on the beach or by the pool, excellent service, and an intimate resort.. this is the one for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good over all value WE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH THE SAMBA RESORT. STAFF ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT, MUCH BETTER THAN THE LARGER RESORTS WE HAVE STAYED AT BEFORE. THE BEACH IS CLEAN WITH LOTS OF LOUNGERS AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES OF THE DAY. NOT A PLACE FOR MAJOR PARTIERS, BUT EXCELLENT FOR OLDER PEOPLE OR YOUNGER FAMILIES. THE ONLY THING I COULD COMPLAIN ABOUT IS THE BEDS ARE TOO HARD, WHEN WE COMPLAINED TO THE FRONT STAFF THEY HELPED US BY PUTTINGON A TOPPER, WHICH MADE A HUGE DIFFERANCE. WELL DONE SAMBA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Single Woman Rest Holiday I went to Samba (WestJet Vacations) for a one-week rest vacation. It was excellent and I would recommend it to others. The staff were helpful, courteous and friendly, and by mid-week many knew my name. I liked the buffet: checking out all the dishes and helping myself to correct portion size. The hotel is small and more than half the guests were from Mexico, so gave a more authentic experience. Not once did I feel unsafe being there alone. I took a one-day tour recommended by the WestJet agent and that also was excellent value and a day to remember. Samba Vallarta Hotel exceeded expectations.
