This place like others have said, is a hidden jewel tucked behind a dusty road. It's like an oasis from a dream! Baggi and everybody that works there is so incredibly kind and wonderful. The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable (luxuriously so), the pool is great with plenty of places to lounge around or swing in a hammock. They also... More

My wife and I stayed in a lodge at Otro Lado for 3 days in late March. The lodges are roomy with wonderful spaces to relax- tables and chairs on patio, hammock, or the gorgeous, wooded upstairs balcony. The pool area was lovely and was the perfect place to chill after a blazing hot Santa Teresa March day. Fellow travelers... More

I recently went to Santa Teresa for my brothers wedding. My father-in-law had stayed at the Otro Lado two weeks before and insisted that we stayed there too.... And I'm so glad that I did! It was one of the most relaxing hotels I have ever been to. I had many other family and friends in Santa Teresa at the... More

Otro Lado is a hidden gem! The villas are amazing clean and so quaint. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The vibe around this place is something you can't explain with words- its just special. The owners make you feel like their home is your home. The pool is great and the location of the resort...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a little less than two weeks and we couldn't have been more impressed! We had actually decided to book this one over other options because of the TA reviews we had read and it did not disappoint! The whole atmosphere is very zen/modern style and you can't help but feel relaxed and at-ease... More

I cant say enough about how great this place is! The staff are unbelievable- super accommodating, welcoming, informative and so genuinely wonderful- it felt like we were leaving friends when came time for us to go home. Selvaggia was amazing even 6 mos before our trip helping out with all little concerns and questions we had just about Costa Rica... More

Santa Teresa is one part of the Montezuma-Mal Pais-Santa Teresa Surfers/yoga triangle, and Otro Lado Lodge reflects this inside and outside. Located far enough from the main road to be quiet and dust-free, it is walking distance to several markets, restaurants and surf shops. It has its own yoga classes, breakfast is tasty and two-store cabins comfortable, even too roomy... More

We have just returned from a 9 day stay at this lovely hotel. We traveled with our daughter and son in law, and each had a comfortable 2 storey lodge around the pool. The food is amazing, simply the best we found in Santa Teresa. The Italian owners and staff are friendly and accommodating...willing to help plan taxis and excursions,... More

Stayed at Otro Lado for 2 nights in Feb 2014. Enjoyed it very much. Nice rooms and a good breakfast in the morning. Close to the beach and places to eat all within an easy walk from the hotel. Owners from Italy were friendly and accommodating. Worth the money. Will be back!
