Enjoyed this place. The employees were kind and accommodating. Food was good as well as location. One night of loud music from the band, but that was great for some folks. I will return to pasatiempo.

We stayed one night at Pasatiempo in Tamarindo. From the street you would never know that it is a tropical oasis. The hotel has perfect little bungalows that are beautifully done and all very private around a pool with lush tropical plants. The open-air Monkey La-La restaurant is on site and they serve you a beautiful breakfast with fruit, yogurt,... More

I brought a group of 27 people for a 4 night stay at the Pasatiempo. The hotel's staff is truly amazing! Randy, Helen and Demetre all went out of their way to make our group feel like family! I have no clue why the previous review states that Randy was rude! He was actually my favorite manger! Always smiling! The... More

Tamarindo is a great little community and Pasatiempo is the perfect option for a decent price. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They gave us some good recommendations for dinner and activities in the area. Everyone seemed laid back, which makes it that much easier for us to settle in. The rooms are also very clean and spacious. Although... More

We came here with a group of friends for a long weekend. The grounds are immaculate and beautifully landscaped with tropical vegetation and wooden furniture. All the bungalows/rooms are very private all with a little patio with chairs, and some with hammocks. The pool is very peaceful and self contained. The beach is a 5 minute walk and lots of... More

Good: room was okay, breakfast also okay, clean, quiet most of the time. Bad: Guy who check led us in (Randy) was basically a jerk who made us feel like we were a major imposition for him, no fridge, no Ice, no phone and no service. The ugly: music at lounge on a few evenings was unacceptably loud and we... More

very nice hotel with large and clean rooms. nice pool, bar area and good breakfast. the only negative thing was that our room was close to the bar and and at night they have bands playing, so it was loud.

I brought a 25 person group to Tamarindo. We stayed at the Pasatiempo and had an incredible experience! Not only was the hotel beautiful and well run, but the staff & owner were extremely accommodating when we had to make last second changes to our group size and room types. Thanks so much! I will definitely be back again.

We stayed at the pasatiempo in Jan 2014, We arrived early and were well received, we sat in the bar close to the pool and had a drink as we looked around we realized we had arrived in a little paradise very secluded from town but yet walking distance to everything. As we walked into our room we were very... More

My girlfriend (now fiancé!) and I stayed for 4 nights this past December. Everything was great! The pool area is beautiful, and feels like a secluded little oasis from the activity in the center of town (which is just a short walk from the hotel) Easy to get to Nogui's, the beach, all the restaurants near Longboards, and the little...
