Hotel Pasatiempo: Tamarindo Beach, Costa Rica

Hotel Pasatiempo is the perfect small boutique hotel in Tamarindo Beach. A breezeway leads you past the reception area to our tropical pool and restaurant. Stone or wood pathways, dotted with lush vegetation, palm and mango trees, meander to the various bungalows, each with its own shaded patio with lounge chairs and/or hammock.

We offer more than fair prices, and if you are looking for an intimate place, with abundant green gardens surrounding the pool, then we are the perfect choice. We are located at only 400 yards from the beach at Playa Tamarindo, the jewel of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

We are located in the quiet part of town yet just a 5-minute walk to the beach. Your room will be surrounded by nature, but within walking distance of everything in town. Relax at the pool, enjoy a cocktail or nice fresh meal at Monkey La-La our full service bar/restaurant or book an activity during your stay. Rooms feature high efficiency A/C, flat-screen televisions with cable, orthopedic mattresses with divine pillow-top, private bathroom with shower and hot water, safe box, fridges in higher categories, and a little private terrace in front of your room. Don't forget our jam music nights every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

"Great place!"

Hotel Pasatiempo is a hidden gem... Just a 2 minute walk to downtown but still tucked away on a side street to avoid lots of noise. Very clean place with newly updated modern rooms and friendly staff. We will absolutely be staying there again when we come back to Tamarindo!

"My favorite hotel!"

My favorite hotel in Tamarindo and nicer year by year. From my last stay a year ago, they have remodeled again... It has the best facilities and services for that price. Definitely a hotel that knowns hospitality business well, never disappointed so far, always pleasantly surprised.
