I stayed at this hotel for 4 days. It was awesome affordable option. The owner is exceptional and he goes above and beyond to ensure his guest are comfortable. The hotel is a 5-10 min walk from the beach. It is walking distance to all of the restaurants and bars yet slightly off the main strip so you can find quiet at night with minimal foot traffic. There is a supermarket less than five minute walk. The rooms were cleaned daily and it provides the basic essentials. Nothing spectacular but given the price point we were not disappointed. The food was decent and slightly cheaper than other restaurants on the strip. I encourage you to try locally prepared dishes from a soda. It was AMAZING. Overall this is an exceptional lost cost option for Tamarindo and I would absolutely recommend staying here.

Thank you Regina for your visit at Hotel Pasatiempo, we are a classic Bed and Breakfast, you can sleep in a comfy bed with good A/C and hotel water for an average of $95/night for 2 people. Our bar/snack is open everyday from 11:30 am to 10 pm with a non stop service around the pool, all day long. Pura Vida.
