The room was clean, breakfast ok, but it was a noisy night. They have a wednesday music night that will keep you awake the whole night. If you are looking for relax time make sure to not book this hotel on wednesday. It was my first and last time in pasatiempo hotel

We stayed for 2 nights at pasatiempo, office staff were great checking us in and order a taxi for us... Very very friendly. Decent rooms, nothing fancy. Only down side is how much the bar (monkey la la) charges for drinks. By far the most expensive place in tamarindo. All drinks were 6-7 American dollars each. Left me with a... More

We arrived in the early evening, tired & hungry. We had a couple of beers & decided to split a mahi-mahi fish & chips special that was very tasty & reasonably... More

Amidst the bustle of Tamarindo, which can get overwhelming, we were quite happy with staying at this hotel while visiting for a wedding. The price was right, the room was comfortable, the pool in the middle was a great site to relax. Most importantly, it was a bit removed from the center of the town which was fairly loud and... More

Absolutely loved this hotel, everyone is extremely helpful and pleasant, they are able to book tours, taxis, etc. My husband and I stayed there the end of February beginning of March for about a week. Breakfast is complimentary and the bar/restaurant serves lunch, dinner and cocktails. There is a pool too, so if you don’t feel like going to the... More

We visited Tamarindo Beach last month and found this beautiful cozy hotel. It is located quite close to the beach. We stayed in one of the suites, which was an absolutely charming and beautiful experience, the room came with all the necessary amenities. Our companions stayed in another type of room which was also very nice. My sister in Law... More

This hotel is the type of place that me and my husband love to stay. Is small in the good way. The crew smiles and greet you almost like a friend. They don't hesitate to full fill all your needs. This place really allows you the relax by the pool, read a book or just drink a beer and talk... More

Know you know that I've been in and out of Tamarindo Costa Rica, for some time now. You know that staying in the same beach town can get a little 'weary'. Well I have a cure for that! Pasatiempo just east of the road to Langosta is a special kind of delightful! The rooms are freshly refurbished, the pool is... More
