Was a great choice for our six nights in Tamarindo, close to all the shops and restaurants but once you enter their property you are in a lovely tropical garden setting with good pool and restaurant for a drink.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo for three days. We really enjoyed it. The food was good and the rooms were clean. We even used one of our days to drink and read by the pool- a chance to get some shade and relax by ourselves. There was music playing during the day, and live entertainment at night....

We stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo during our 7 day visit to Tamarindo. A good choice. First, it's reasonably close to the beach, about 6-7 minutes walking. A lot of hotels in Tamaridndo are considerably further. Pasatiempo is very central with bars and restaurants close by as well as a small supermarket only 2 minutes away. All of the staff at...

My wife and I spent a few days here at Hotel Pasatiempo and we're more than pleased with the accommodations. Yes, the room was minimal but more than enough and comfortable. The breakfast provided was always delicious and I found myself looking forward to it. The staff was great especially the bar staff. Very friendly and helpful with questions about...

We loved this hotel, especially the cute Howler monkeys. They would talk to each other and chatter together. We had a gorgeous room within 50 feet of the pool. The food was good. The hotel was right in the thick of things and no car was needed. We'd definitely return.

We stayed here for 12 days. This hotel is set in a beautiful setting of tropical plants and flowers around the pool. You feel like you've entered a lovely oasis when you step off the street into Hotel Pasatiempo. This hotel is very clean, rooms are great with awesome water pressure in the shower. Breakfast is great and included in...

I did a ton of research before finding a place to stay in Tamarindo and I am so glad we stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo. From beginning to end, it was a wonderful time. I arranged the shuttle through the hotel for $35 pp one way. When we got off the plane and through customs our driver was right there with...

The rooms are basic but clean. A small fridge, a bottle of water when you arrive, and hospitality tray would be good. No plug in the basin and no full-length mirror. Plenty of hot water with good pressure for showers.The staff are polite, charming and friendly. The one thing that let the hotel down badly was breakfast. The service was...
