I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and the staff, in particular Randy and Dimitri and the chef Eduarado., Who cooked our fish that we caught the day before. Lovely accommodations, beautiful gardens, small but very clean pool....we liked it so much we decided to stay an extra day. Best of all it is walking distance to the... More

As you enter hotel it turns into a lush tropical garden with a beautiful pool and tiki bar. The staff is always there to help with questions about area. Where to find different types of food, entertainment and set up local tours. Great place for couples to visit

We staid 6 nights at this hotel in December. Our two bedroom room was cozy and we managed to squeeze in all our three kids in the second room. You can see that it is not new, but it was well kept and did not appear run down. The breakfast are of good size and varied. Pool is just fine... More

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
