The apartments were very nice and the kitchen fully equipped. Everything worked and the managing (and I believe owning) family very attentive and genuinely friendly and helpful (although I would not recommend contacting them by email as some other reviewer attempted as they live right next to the property). Pool was smallish but nice and clean. The only drawback is...

My boyfriend and I lived in Playa Flamingo from Feb - June 2015 and LOVED our say here. This place is a lush oasis, private and secluded with beautiful apartments, each unique and lovely. The owner, Miguel, and caretaker, David, are stars! They made us feel like part of the family, always helping us out and taking an interest in...

My husband and I stayed in the Massia apartments for just over three weeks in February / March 2015. We had a great time. the apartments are simple but comfortable and roomy with lovely balconies. The pool and gardens are lovely. We were made extremely welcome by Miguel who runs it and along with David were treated like members of...

I booked this apartment with mixed feelings - I needed cheap accommodation for a few nights to keep down the cost of my holiday, but some of the reviews I had read were not so positive, so I went there hoping for the best! These apartments are slightly hidden away from the main road, so our taxi driver struggled a...

We stayed here in Jan. & Feb, 2010. and were fairly happy with the place. Amazing how things and management change. We stayed here for two months (Jan and Feb 2013) and found the place has gone downhill. The landscaping was almost nonexistant and the only thing we found new were 6 new lightweight patio chairs. The bed we had...

However we can't use it because the filters haven't been cleaned and the motor is overheating. There is no water in the impeller and the pump will burn up! I believe the pump has just been replaced, there would be no reason to stay here without the beautiful pool area as the rest of the apartments are in need of...

Anyway I was there for...

We booked a four night vacation at the hotel based on the internet reviews, but when we arrived it was clear that we had been duped. The price was too good to be true. The hotel was in very poor condition and the rooms were awful. The room was dirty, the air condition was pitiful and we had to deal...

We went to a triathlon event in Conchal. The place is nice, it has a great pool, close to a super market. Flamingo and Potrero are the nearest beach. Very well equipped. Eventhough we had some troubles with the reservation, they handled it ok. We didn´t like the idea of a loose puppy dog around the property, but the kids...

I stayed at Massai from 1/22/11-1/28/11 and it was a great experience. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment that came with a stocked kitchen. There is a grocery store withing 100 feet of the apartment where we bought food to make breakfast daily. Downtown Flamingo is about a 20 minute walk, which I do not suggest making in the dark...
