We had a basic room that was clean. Like others have commented, we did have ants crawling on the floor and walls. The wifi didn't work in the room or on our HUGE (awesome) porch for the first 12 days, but then my husband noticed the booster on the outside of our building. He reset it and we (and our... More

Stayed here the first 2 nights of our 2 weeks trip. Staff was wonderful, food was delicious, pool was lovely and most importantly the beds were the comfiest we had for our entire trip. This hotel isn't right on the beach but the walk is nothing. Loved Hotel Pasatiempo

After having a bad experience in Coco Beach my husband and I weren't sure how the rest of our trip was going to go. Thank God that Hotel Pasatiempo changed our trip for better. The rooms are individual bungalows with your own personal front porch with chairs. The rooms have a Spanish feel to them and the outside is like... More

12 of us were at the Pasatiempo recently and truly enjoyed our time. We were all there for 2 weeks. Everything that has been mentioned in earlier reviews is true. The food and drinks are tasty, beds are very comfortable and the staff are great. Everyday we had different birds, lizards, monkeys and various other critters to take pictures of... More

Summary: Hotel Pasatiempo is a great mini-resort for the money, tucked away up the hill from the beach. Detail: The staff at Hotel Pasatiempo were exemplary. From check-in, to housekeeping, and especially the bar/restaurant. The hotel is a short, 5 minute walk to the beach, along the somewhat touristy Tamarindo streets. It has the potential to be a little loud... More

This place is great! So great we wanted to stay more nights but they were all booked up. So obviously everyone already knows that this is THE place to stay. The staff was so nice and helpful and not in that fake way that you get sometimes with hotels and restaurants, but in a real genuine and authentic way. The... More

Ok, everything was good. Breakfast is served and a bit limited, but it's good overall. Service was also very good here. Room was very nice. Everything is a bit close together so if people at the pool are noisy, you may have a bit of trouble falling asleep as in my case there were a bunch of people laughing at... More

We booked this hotel in March of 2015 and requested a fridge...which was not available when we arrived. The front desk did their best to assist us by giving us a cooler with ice but I feel that a hotel of this size (and price) should have fridges available. The pool area was lively and fun but after a pretty... More

We absolutely loved everything about our 4 night stay at Hotel Pasatiempo. Minutes to the beach and several great restaurants, this place feels like a little oasis in the tropics. The property is well maintained and we often saw monkeys in the trees above our room. Rooms were comfortable and clean, the pool was perfect and the Monkey La La... More

Every one at The Hotel Pasatiempo helped to make this the perfect vacation!!! The Hotel was perfectly situated just on the outskirts of town. It felt like we were in our own private resort. Yet step out side the gardens of the hotel and there were so many good restaurants it was hard to chose where to eat every day!!!... More
