I recently had the pleasure of staying at your lovely hotel. I also had a wonderful experience with your staff! Your bartender, Giovanni was so nice and personable. I was just sad I didn't get to say goodbye to him! Luis, the security was so nice! Diego at the front desk was also so nice as well as helpful! He...

Great small hotel with lots of vegetation, beautiful surrounding, lots of trees, great small pool to have drinks straight from the bar, although I recommend to just get a small liquor bottle/ six-pak from the supermarket in the corner and mix your own drink, since their bar drinks may be a little pricey for the cheap alcohol they make their...

I'll be frank about Tamarindo, while tourists seem to like the energy, and it does have a few nice restaurants... the cars, trucks, motor cycles, strip mall shops, noise in general, was a bit too much for me. That's when Hotel Pasatiempo saved the day. It's in the heart of town and quiet. The landscaping is beautiful, it really feels...

The hotel is in a good location but it is really overpriced. The internet connection was awful so if you need to do any work forget it. There is no sun by the pool after about 2.00pm The staff were not that helpful and the manager was particularly patronising. She told me off for not booking directly as she is...

Recently we visited Hotel Pasatiempo for the second time and it exceeded our expectations again! What a nice, beautiful place to stay with perfect rooms and a marvelous staff that is second to none. It was to perfect place to anchor all of our activities while in Costa Rica. We started each day with a wonderful (free) breakfast which was...

A little oasis in the heart of Tamarindo. Although cabins are somewhat plain, they are thoroughly charming and kept very clean by a super attentive staff. In fact, all of the staff at this hotel go above and beyond to please their guests. The pool and tropical gardens are quite breathtaking and completely surround you when you stay there (you...

I stayed here for 5 nights in December. I had a great time and rarely saw people or heard them. Each patio had their own porch and hammock. It was about a 2 minute walk to the beach and about a 30 second walk to the town. It is on a dirt road but only about 200yards. I never used...

A beautiful peaceful sanctuary with a short walk to all the restaurants, the beach, shopping. Great traditional free breakfast. We enjoyed the gallo pinto , banana pancakes and fresh fruit. The property feels large and private because of all the beautiful well maintained tropical vegetation. The pool bar always plays peaceful chill, latin or other low key world music. Very...

This hotel is like you're at home. I cannot say enough about how welcoming, friendly and attentive the staff are. Very clean, well upkept, insanely friendly and the rooms are perfect with your own patio and easy access to everything. Felt very safe here and genuinely hated to leave. Food at bar is excellent and the bartender Jovani is an...
