    If you are visiting Samba, go have an omlette made by Lori! She is the sweetest, and her omlettes are pure magic! I loved watched her technique she makes the perfect little bundle.The entire staff was wonderful. I enjoyed talking to them they were all so friendly!

    This hotel is very old and leaks badly if it rains, including in our rooms and the main dining area. Musty smell so bad that we had reactions. Had a theft from a room and security was not responsive. Beach is nice and there are some small waves for boogieboarding. We brought our own boards and were glad we did. The boards for use are barely holding together and hard to get. Easy walk to nearby Bucerias which is lovely. Lot's of long stay people who come back yearly, bring the place a wasting away in Margaritaville feeling. Food was ok but we've had much better at other hotels including 2 stars. Evening shows are not great and there is really nothing to do in the evening. Literally the place is dead quiet by 9pm so don't expect any disco. Great if you want to go to bed early, except if you are on side next to Rui Vallarta next door. In that case you can and will have to listen to people enjoying themselves late into the night. I love real Mexico and this has some of that but pretends to be something it's not. The Mexican restaurant was some of the blandest food I've ever had. Bring on the spice.... You have to ask for guacamole if you want it. It's small so not a lot to do for activities. It seems like they will probably tear this down and rebuild at some point. There's a reason it's on sale...... I took my mom and was embarrassed at the choice I made. So many nicer places to stay in the area.
