We stayed in Villa 3 a full week, and can only recommend Otro Lado as a great and hospitable small hotel. Our condo was clean and nicely decorated, with two large bathrooms. Both bathrooms had spacious shower rooms, innovatively crafted with nature stone. The hotel is perfectly placed along the long stretch of beaches at Santa Teresa, with short distance... More

It's been two weeks since we've returned from our stay at Otro Lado, and the place is still so much on our minds we had to come back to write this review. We miss Otro Lado! The place is incredible, a true sanctuary. We stayed six days and couldn't get enough. Baggi and the staff are incredible (hi to Reinaldo!).... More

Just got back from a 2 night weekend getaway with my boyfriend and my dog who they let stay with us for no extra charge. Otro Lado was great start to finish. We stayed in Villa 3 since they didn't have any rooms left and were glad to feel like we had our own condo in town. It was super... More

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...
