Very Good 8.4 From 79 reviews

Good 6.0
The location is great and the staff is super friendly. The rooms are very small with little to no storage and the rooms are not very clean. The safe didn't work, the door seemed flimsy and not very safe, there is very little water pressure as well. Bugs, and even though that is understood to some degree in Costa Rica, these were unnecessary. Spiders and cobwebs that should have been taken care of daily, were not. If you aren't looking for much, as far as the room goes, then you will be okay. The staff is very nice and helpful, the food is good and the location is very convenient. For the money, it's worth it, just don't set your expectations too high. I highly recommend their breakfast options and their margaritas! Happy hour is 4-7 every day!

Good 6.0
Our stay here was okay. The pictures make it look a bit more swanky than what it is. I didn’t have any doubts that our room was clean, but the bedding had some small stains on it, lots of marks on the walls that made it look dirty. It could use a good deep clean. The breakfast was delicious and lots of options, the bar was very nice, and the staff were helpful with booking taxis/tours.

Poor 2.0
This was not as pictured. Our room had a view of barbed wire and the sliding doors were not secure. We did not feel safe.

Pastiempo is a quiet sanctuary amid Tamarindo's bustle. It's very convenient to the beach, restaurants, and activity kiosks. The property and rooms are a little dated, but the staff tries very hard to make your stay enjoyable.

An oasis in the middle of Tamarindo! Loved this place and didn’t want to leave. Very clean and tasteful rooms, nestled amongst manicured gardens - had a lot of charm. Porch area outside room with hammock was awesome for chilling out at night or for midday shade. Pool was fabulous with comfortable lounge chairs and just the right amount of spots with sun, dappled light and shade. Friendly and accommodating staff - helped us book a boat tour! Shot great video of monkeys in the mango tree outside our room door! Live music a couple evenings a week - super fun. Can go to the bar or listen from the porch - not so loud nor late that disruptive to sleeping guests. Will stay again!!!

Weird Stay
The stay was weird. The hotel looks the same as in the photos but you aren't looking too closely, it's not as clean as it seems, the pool is tiny and the rooms have a ton of mosquitoes. They ask you to wear a band the whole time you're there which is also annoying. It's definitely overpriced for what you get, but that might be a feature of Tamarindo on a whole.

Super chill friendly atmosphere- our room was small but clean and had a nice porch area that was 10 feet from the pool and 15 feet from the restaurante and bar... - our bed was super comfy- and included was an epic breakfast plate- with awesome choices! We definitely plan to return to Pasatiempo! Thank you JC and all!

Quaint boutique hotel with a restaurant. Had issues with working AC and made for a warm night while trying to sleep. Close to everything in Tamarindo, park your car and walk to wherever you want
