sweet small hotel near Tamarindo town center

Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable room with hammock outside, lovely small pool by bar/restaurant. Very easy "home base" for exploring Tamarindo.
Cons: The prices at the restaurant were a but crazy ($6 for a smoothie!)
Location: Tamarindo is a super fun beach town with countless adventure activities and natural beauty to explore.
Only stayed one night, but enjoyed our room, swim, and the friendly staff who helped us acclimate on our first night in Costa Rica. Felt extremely safe and close to everything (beach, restaurants, bank next door.)

Thanks for your comment. You can consult our prices in our webpage. Smoothie price is $3.5 but some of our virgin cocktails are more expansive than smoothies. Next time we will invite you. Hope to see you back at Hotel Pasatiempo.

Good base - great staff

My two teenage children and i just returned from 12 days in CR, using Hotel Pasatiempo as our base of operations. The accommodations were pleasant enough, but the staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and responsive...not only as hotel employees, but also on an authentic & personal level. As an uninformed first-timer to Costa Rica, i felt like i was just throwing darts when picking a hotel...in hindsight, i hit the bull's eye. Thanks again guys (and Gloria !) for the fond memories. A & K send their love: Me ke aloha pau, ole' a hui hou !
