Me and my friend stayed there in August and the staff was really nice. Dimitri told us everything we needed to know about Tamarindo, where to eat good, where to go out and a couple tips to enjoy our short time in Tamarindo. The room was clean, comfortable bed, good breakfast, and really close to the beach and the restaurants... More

Glad we found Pasatiempo in the overwhelming Hotel offer that Tamarindo has nowadays. It is a few hundred yards away from the beach, but still walking distance. We really enjoyed the garden, it creates this kind of green paradise atmosphere. The rooms are super nice, spacious, luxurious, tastefully decorated. The food at the restaurant is great, with light lunch and... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing it reminded me of a tropical forest, the food was excellent, very comfortable beds, good prices and the bartendar/host Jhoany took good care of us. His warm smile and bubbly personality was great he kept bringing us the best drinks and we loved it. I cannot stress how happy and comfortable the whole staff made... More

Our family of four stayed for 4 nights while exploring the Tamarindo area. Pasatiempo was a great get away from the hot and dusty streets of the town. The pool and garden area were well maintained and nicely landscaped. We were in a unit with two bedrooms and a shared bath farther towards the back of the property. The air... More

Wonderful, quaint spot that made you feel you were off in a tropical oasis far removed from the Tamarindo craziness. Great, friendly staff, really nice home cooked breakfast and a good spot for kids. Short walk to the beach - stay here if you want a place to remember!

Booked 2 nights at Hotel Pasatiempo and had a very nice time! It's a 4 minute walk from the beach! Our room was secluded from the others with immediate access to the pool and bar! We did not eat at the hotel but did have a couple of drinks poolside! The bar tender is extremely attentive and even brings out... More

What an amazing stay a friend and I had at Hotel Pasatiempo! The general feel of this hotel is relaxing, private and an oasis away from a busier town. We had Giovanni (Randy's brother) serve us three nights in a row and words cannot describe the hospitality he showed not only us but every other guest who stepped foot into... More

Perfect location, away from the nose, still close to the beach. Beautiful garden, super nice rooms, great food and perfect pool. It is truly a little Paradise of green surrounded by the typical dry climate of this province. Great price quality value.

Upon arrival I was greeted by Dimitri who made me feel at home right away. In the evening I met Jovani in the Restaurant who immediately introduced me to Alex from Argentina. We all became friends and my vacation was off to a great start. My room was charming and comfortable near the pool in the interior garden. To my... More
