My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was not on the main road but still easily accessible from the main road and beach. We didn't mind the 5 minute walk into town. Our room was not huge but had the necessities and the AC worked great. There was a safe, tv, small closet and bathroom. We liked... More

Stayed here on a 4-night father/son fishing trip and this was perfect! Clean, quaint, quiet, and accommodating. Great AC! Hernando at the bar was great - try the Monkey La La! Fish and chips as well as the breakfasts are great, too. 5-minute walk to just about anywhere. We'll be back!

The property was small but very charming. The howler monkeys would hang out in the tree above our room and eat fruit! It was very quiet except for the occasional iguana crawling across the roof. The location is perfect! It is just around the corner from the largest grocery store in Tamarindo proper. All bars, restaurants, and the beach are... More

Very nice rooms in lovely garden setting. A little at the skirts of the centre, so no noise in the evening/night. There is a nice swimming-pool and staff are very friendly and helpfull with planning tours or other trips. We saw howler-monkies and iguanas in the garden in the morning. Very nice for photographing.

We were so happy with our stay at Pasatiempo. Loved the "home like" feel. The staff was personable, consistent, and very helpful with every kind of recommendation. Loved the mornings when the monkeys would treat us with a show! Close to the beach, town. Enjoyed the pool area immensely. A definite recommendation from us, would stay here again in a... More

Cutest little hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. Very low-key laid back vibe. We were greeted by a little orange cat who was lounging in the walkway which lead to an oasis of a pool covered by palm trees and lined with little bungalows. The hotel staff was so friendly and causal. The check-in process was made easy. We... More

A very nice and cosy hotel with around 20 rooms in a tropical garden. A big swimming pool, with a restaurant and a very large bar. The staff is very good and friendly and the owner a very nice young french woman who will help you with pleasure. I will certainly come back to this place next year.

Great place to take the family! Small hotel that has a personal touch. Nice pool area and restaurant bar. Great mojitos and burgers. Offers a large variety of adventures to go on. Not far from the beach. I would definitely stay here again! Great hotel for the right price.

We spent three wonderful days at Pasatiempo. Right what we look for all the time, an intimate, friendly and almost family run beach hotel in a beautiful setting, although not right on the beach, at easy walking distance. The garden and pool are so comfortable, hence the fact that we never left more than 3 times for going to the... More

We stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo for 3 nights in May. The staff was awesome and the location was perfect for getting anywhere around town. The rooms are very cute and there is a bar with the best bartender ever who makes great drinks. We will definitely return.
