“Nice and charming place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2011

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 seemed to be happy. It is a simple place but it has everything. They don´t have a lot of appartments, I guess they are about 8. Some of them with 2 different rooms, in one room one double bed - it is airconditioned. In the other room, 3 single beds no ac, but a fan. In the living room, a bed sofa enough for another person. The other appartments are one room with one single and one double bed. In the living room there is a sofa enough for 1 person. Good if you are traveling a lot of people.

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 as there are not street lights part of the way. We rented bikes from Claudia's bike shop and rode them up and down the beaches starting in Flamingo and ending in Sugar Beach ( we are in our 20's). This apartment is away from all of the action and secluded. A taxi ride to Tamarindo is about 20 minutes and $20. There is an Economy Rental car in Flamingo if you are in search of a rental. We skimped and rented a Kia Spectra which was a bad idea. It would have been fine if we would have stayed in town but definitley rent a 4X4 if you plan on making any excursions out of the norm. Arenal volcano is about a 5 hour drive because of the wining roads but def worth the trip. Out of all the beachers we visited Flamingo was out favorite and Conchal came in second. We did the Buena Vista tour which included hot springs, horseback riding, zip lining, lunch and a 1,000 foot water slide! All in all a fun experience! Oh and the WiFi worked great!
