Nice and clean rooms that felt secluded. Nice poolarea with lots of green around it, but not very big. Felt very welcome and prefered the hotel over the beach due to strong winds our week. Location is ok.

My girlfriend and I visited Tamarindo for a week in March of 2016 and stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo. We were looking for the nicest place we could get for a budget of ~$100 a night, and Hotel Pasatiempo was exactly that. The rooms are little duplexes scattered throughout a beautiful fenced property with natural foliage, trees and wildlife. Our room...

We absolutely fell in love with this quiet little place surrounded by a pretty active town. We felt like we had our own private little piece of paradise here. The staff were all incredible nice and helpful, the room was just enough to get some rest at night before spending all day out in the town, at the beach or...

Was a great choice for our six nights in Tamarindo, close to all the shops and restaurants but once you enter their property you are in a lovely tropical garden setting with good pool and restaurant for a drink.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo for three days. We really enjoyed it. The food was good and the rooms were clean. We even used one of our days to drink and read by the pool- a chance to get some shade and relax by ourselves. There was music playing during the day, and live entertainment at night....

We stayed at Hotel Pasatiempo during our 7 day visit to Tamarindo. A good choice. First, it's reasonably close to the beach, about 6-7 minutes walking. A lot of hotels in Tamaridndo are considerably further. Pasatiempo is very central with bars and restaurants close by as well as a small supermarket only 2 minutes away. All of the staff at...

My wife and I spent a few days here at Hotel Pasatiempo and we're more than pleased with the accommodations. Yes, the room was minimal but more than enough and comfortable.
