I stayed at Otro Lado with my mom, brother and his girlfriend for over a week in May. It was fantastic. Excellent customer service, great breakfast, beautiful rooms, awesome pool area. Plus a yoga area right under our casa! The place is peaceful and quiet yet close to everything you need. Great vacation!

This place is very nice - clean rooms, beautiful buildings and friendly service. The breakfast is great. There is a nice pool and a yoga area. It is close to the beach with great surf. It is placed in the more quiet end of Santa Teresa, but still close to great restaurants, supermarket etc. We would like to come back

We really enjoyed our stay here. The lodge is nicely set away from the main road in Santa Teresa but close enough to easily walk to the main Beach. The grounds are beautiful, clean and well looked after. We stayed in a 2 floor unit, which was really big. Outside had a private hammock and table and chairs. Inside ground... More

Stayed here for a week in March and everything was perfect. The complimentary breakfast is great, the price is right, it's quiet, and the staff is polite and attentive to everything. Very clean, secure and just across the road from the sand. Love this place!!!

We went back to Santa Teresa at the end of January. This place just rocks! The owners are so easy going and nice and care for their customers! Otro Lado is our GO TO place in Santa Teresa! If we can't find space aht this hotel, we simply don't go to Santa Teresa. Small, lovely place! 100% recommended!

We truly enjoyed staying at Otro Lado Lodge. Rooms are big, bed huge with excellent matrasses, has safe and well functioning fridge. The small terrace overlooks the beautiful gardens. Breakfast and lunch options are delicious with fresh homemade bread. Owners are very nice and the wooden and bamboo design makes you feel relaxed. The lodge is just a 5 min... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and had a great time. Close to the beach, friendly staff and tasty pasta lunches. Also has a nice swimming pool and is a hotel that you can spend time at to hide from the sun. Santa Teresa is a nice town with everything you need and great for surfers. Sandy beaches and hot...

Just spent three nights here and we were very happy with the villa we stayed in. It's a beautiful building and well appointed. The hotels location was good for Santa Teresa, though the area wasn't really our type of place....but that's for another review!

I booked a week at Otro Lado Lodge for my partner and me based on a second hand recommendation on Facebook and was delighted to find it lived up to the positive review. We had a poolside unit with an upstairs bedroom and two daybeds in the downstairs livingroom/kitchenette area - big enough for a small family and very comfortable... More

We came back with a much larger group and loved our stay here once again. Vaggi took great care of us and our guests, she is amazingly helpful with everything! The grounds look fabulous even during dry season, and the pool is always clean and perfect to relax by. The villas are large, and even the smaller one bedroom rooms... More
