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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

Although the furniture in this place are not that comfortable and old and very used, it does have it's charm. The pool area is excellent...probably the best pool we saw in the area. Lillian, the manager of Massai, was very accommodating with any problems which arose,,,and there was some. The owners seem to not want to spend money on renewing... More
