I took a group and we stayed here in August. The dirt road to get here was a short distance from the main road (not much). The nice rooms came with breakfast included in the price. The breakfast was not slow and not much; the shower and towels need reviewing. The location is good. The beach is a few minutes'... More

We stayed for two nights and loved it. Its a great hotel conveniently located close to the main street of Tamarindo but in the same time away from the fuss. The room was great, the swimming pool is beautiful and perfectly set between the garden and the rooms. Would love to go back!

Travelled with five friends and stayed three nights at the Pasatiempo. The entire resort is rather secluded and quiet. Step outside, and you're almost immediately on Tamarindo's tourist strip. 5 minute walk to the beach and amenities. Staff were very friendly, including bar keeper Steve. Overall atmosphere rather quiet, but then we were travelling outside of the main season. Accordingly... More

We had a really great time staying at Pasatiempo during our week long vacation in Tamarindo. Randy, Dennis and Derlin were so helpful and went above and beyond in making our stay comfortable and enjoyable...they made us feel right at home. We hope to return next year!

We stayed here during the second and third week of April 2014, and had booked this place because of the great reviews on tripadvisor. We got in very lae the first night, but were kindly shown to our room. We found the staff so nice and hardworking, they accomodated us on every level and we couldn't have asked for more.... More

We stayed our first time in Tamarindo and Pasatiempo was excellent very clean and great pool and lush gardens. The location was perfect right near a super market and the main drag so lovely and quiet. Easy to walk to the beach or for a 20 minute walk to Langosta beach. Meals were also great and loved the villa's scattered... More

Helene helped us plan our entire (sublime) vacation in CR! Everyone went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the pool was perfect for lounging. The hotel is minutes from the beach and restaurants, but is removed from the noise of the main street. Our only regret was missing... More

My wife and I stayed there for a week. Randy at the front desk was very helpful and spoke English well. The property is a tropical oasis. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. If you book thru book it.com the breakfast are not free but its only 5 $ per day.
