Only 5 minutes to the beach and the supermarket is just around the corner. The property is lovely with a swimmingpool and a nice restaurant. The cleaning is OK and also the breakfast. All-in-all a good place to stay.

Wonderful time at Hotel Pasatiempo! The landscaping is gorgeous and feels like such a tropical getaway. Great pool, great rooms, super cute. Breakfast was wonderful and includes fresh juice and coffee, plus a choice of one of 3 options of the day. Loved our stay there! Staff was also really helpful and kind. They loan special towels for the beach...

The staff are very friendly and helpful. They really do have hot water. That hot shower felt great. It seems to be fairly common for Costa Ricans to not have hot water. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the private sitting area it came with, supplied with Adirondack chairs and a table. The pool was clean, and the...

Hotel Pasatiempo was such a great choice! We visit Tamarindo every year and try to stay at different places, but Pasatiempo may well have won us over. The rooms are so lovely and the massive bathroom was a huge selling feature! The sheets were so soft and the bed was incredible. But, the most impressive was the staff! From the...

we had an emergency and needed to change our reservation and the management would not let us nor refund our money. We cancelled 5 days in advance of our reservation. We totally understand keeping the reservation deposit, but charging us for the entire stay was a bit outrageous. They have not been receptive to refunding us or offering us another...

The pool & garden area was nicely kept and the restaurant had great service. The location was perfect and walking distance to everything, We would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to...

Wonderful and centrally located hotel in the heart of Tamarindo. A little oasis in the downtown hubbub. Easy walking distance everywhere. Great swimming pool. Rooms are very clean and cozy. Stayed with our two kids ages four and seven. Lots of other kids around to play in the swimming pool while we had poolside cocktails and appetizers. Great restaurant and...

This hotel felt like a tiny resort in the middle of Tamarindo. Loved the grounds, the rooms were good, included breakfast was excellent. Monday night live music was fun. There was a problem with the wifi, it didn't work in the room at all and barely worked in the common areas. Some kind of animal was living in the roof...

Nice location and easy to find. It is set a bit away from the noisy center by the beach, yet still close to the beach at a fair walking distance. We enjoy smaller boutique hotels, therefore it was perfect for us. The price was fair, and we got a very spacious deluxe room, which was at least in the 3...
