Our room literally smelt like urine the entire duration of our stay. The place was loaded with mosquitos and I had hair in my breakfast daily. I guess you get what you pay for right? That being said i must say that the staff was super friendly and helpful. But it just cant make up for the dirty room unfortunately.

Nice little hotel, clean and friendly staff. We stayed here for two nights. Bars and restaurants and the beach ate in walking distance. The hotel has a very nice bar and restaurant, too. It was quite, probably due to off season. I would definitely recommend it!

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 location is good and the staff at check-in were good but the room was terrible. The room was quite small but as soon you open the door you get smacked in the face with a strong musty, moldy odor. When you get in the room you see why, mold everywhere! The wall was completely covered in mold, they had... More

Hello Yin, we are so sorry again for our stain chair issue. During our green season, we can have a lot of rain and dealing with humidity can be sometimes challenging. We should not have this stain chair in our room of course and we sincerely apologize for it. We are very tight on our cleaning and I think that... More

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
