My husband and I stayed at Pasatiempo five weeks In January and early February of this year 2015. We had one one of the best holidays of our lives, if not the best. We were welcomed with open arms by all the staff, especially Randy, the fun loving, gregarious Manager who can speak fluent English, Spanish and ....Irish. He greeted... More

The hotel rooms are set in nicely kept grounds within short walking distance to bars/restaurants, supermarket and the beach. It was the perfect location for us. The room was perfect for what we needed, with an A/C, a very comfy bed and the shower had good pressure and hot water. No bugs in the room. We also had a couple... More

The Pasatiempo hotel was 10 out of 10! Staff was so attentive ...delivering our usual cocktail to poolside with freshly popped pop corn!! Our room was fabulous, restaurant menu and food was great an the included breakfast was beyond our expectations. Such a short and interesting walk to a lovely beach. Thanks for a great 7 night stay!

We stayed here for 5 days on our trip to Tamarindo. We did arrive on Wednesday night and there is a live band playing, it was loud but ended at midnight. We were pretty tired and went of to bed early. We loved the pool, gardens, and little private bungalows of this hotel. The rooms had 2 double beds with... More

The bedding is new and the colors are cheerful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool very clean and inviting it's like a small oasis. Location... More

I loved staying at Hotel Pasatiempo in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. This hotel is owned by a young French girl who bought it a few years ago. She has done an excellent job! Hotel Pasatiempo is surrounded by tropical gardens and wooden walkways that lead to each guest room. There is a nice pool right next to the bar/restaurant which is... More

My hubby and I stayed here with another couple and we loved it! It's private, beautiful, and romantic. The food at the bar is delicious too! My only complaint is that the Wifi didn't reach our room but I could get it from the bar. Also the first night there we lost power I think bc they had live music... More
