We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the pasatiempo. It is a great place to relax, with a quiet pool area, lush landscaping and clean rooms. Staff is super friendly and quick to answer any questions you have or make suggestions for your visit in Tamarindo. The water in the shower isn't always hot and the wifi in our room was...

This hotel was recommended by a friend and was excellent. The grounds were lush and beautiful. The pool was lovely. The bar was affordable. Breakfast was delicious! The A/C was cold and beds were super comfortable. The location couldn't have been better. The beach is a quick walk as well as restaurants like Green Papaya and La Buala. The staff...

This hotel has nice accommodations, clean rooms and a good on-site restaurant. The (included) breakfast is a little small considering they just provide one egg plus some fruit. The pool is refreshing and the showers are hot! I will return for a third time.

Very nice tropical setting which allows howlers to visit- the highlight Unfortunately, 50M away there's Club Nero blasting music up till 2am. Impossible to sleep without earplugs. Breakfast was included but when we arrived at 7:30am, there was just hard-boiled eggs, coffee and juice. Waiter provided us with a menu a few minutes later and never came back. Rooms were...

Hello John, thanks so much for taking the time to write us a comment. We are very proud of our tropical garden. It's necessary for us to keep this fantastic garden with a lot of endemic species, permiting howler monkeys and other local mammals to have a source of food in the middle of the town. The whole garden is...

the location of the hotel to the town of tamarindo is great, everything is within walking distance. the few drawbacks of the rooms is that they are very small and the entrance to my room was a sliding door which was a pain to lock and unlock, a real door would have been nice, other than that the washroom door...

Hello and thanks for taking the time to write us a comment. 1 year ago we decided to change our old wood doors with sliding doors. We took this decision because it gives more light to the room, and it permits our guests to have the doors completely open during night or day with an extra screen for mosquitoes (for...

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.

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...
