We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we very much enjoyed our experience. The rooms are clean, spacious, cool, which is good for the high temperatures in the area, have a very nice terrace in front, where you can spend really good quality time. The pool is a great relaxation place and the yard makes you feel in a... More

Our son from Sweden had talked to Randy getting information on a surprise dinner for our 45 th anniversary from our three sons, he was so polite and helpful! The pool,bar,and restaurant area were wonderful and so was... More

Great place!!! Surrounded by lush green with lots of monkeys in the trees!! Pool was perfect and hotel was in a great location. We loved it!! My only recommendation is for hotel to provide a small fridge in room. We did the full day excursion which was awesome! Hotel picked us up at airport right on time. Our room was... More

Small hotel, with a fabulous garden, in the center a beautiful pool. Although surrounded by Tamarindo, you feel as if you are in an Oasis. Great food, delicious breakfasts, fun bar, friendly front desk staff and very good price for the type of room you get ( We got the Suite ) Not right on the beach but easy to... More

Charming property, conveniently located. As a solo traveler I found the staff to be very accommodating before and during my stay. When I needed some over the counter meds early on a Sunday morning before my check out the owner made arrangements for a driver to pick them up at the next town over and get them to me as... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo for our honeymoon and had an amazing experience! The staff is so nice and friendly! It feels like you are staying with a family rather than a hotel because all the staff is so welcoming. They do everything they can to make your vacation perfect and even went above and beyond to...

Employees were incredibly friendly- shout out to Demetri and Randy! Breakfasts were good- cooked to order- and help make the hotel a great value. Pool is small but relaxing. Down a dirt road from the center of town- definitely gives you the authentic feeling- very different from staying at a large resort! Rooms feel a little small, reminiscent of a... More

The hotel is a great hotel with wonderful staff who couldn't be more helpful we loved our stay with them. We stayed for 3 weeks so we can honestly say we started to feel like part of the place that's how welcome you are made to feel. It's a small hotel compared to some others but it has everything that's... More
