The place is out of the crowd but close to anything you would ever need. Built around a nice living open area and pool, it is held by a group of friends who believe in zen, good food and surf. Their love for life is in everything around, from the fresh flowers in every bathroom, to the candles on every... More

Absolutely amazing atmosphere with european neatness. The small hotel is hosted by a courteous Italian couple who is always willing for a nice chat or advise. Cleaner than most other places and with that special sense of comfort and convenience without abundant luxury.

I was a bit disappointed by the size of the hotel. Very small with rooms everywhere. It felt odd to walk into this hotel. It is very well kept, but all the decor is about yoga, zen with buda statues etc. Great if you are into that. For me, it was a bit too much. Stayed in Santa Teresa because... More

We just returned from a week in Santa Teresa and want to go back! And we'd definitely stay at Otro Lado again! The rooms are great - we stayed in a villa, which was clean and spacious. Cooked some fresh caught red snapper there for dinner using our kitchen one night. The pool was perfect, and the greenery and flowers... More

Every person we interacted with at Otro Lado was extremely kind, fun, and helpful. The food was very yummy and the breakfast options (lots to choose from!) we're always fresh and tasty. The rooms are spacious and clean. Right by beach access

I read all these tripadvisor reviews before we arrived and this place definitely lived up to the descriptions. We stayed an entire week and didn't want to leave. The beaches, surf and natural landscape of Santa Teresa were stunning and this place was the perfect complement--I wouldn't be surprised if it was designed by some kind of feng shui master.... More
