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

I booked my stay at Otro Lado based solely on TripAdvisor reviews, and I wasn't let down. As others have said, the rooms are basic, but they're tastefully done and very clean. The only negative thing I can say is that the beds were a bit hard, but other than that the room was great. The shower was wonderful; great... 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

Our experience of our stay was best summed up by proprietor Nico when he said, "We tried to build the kind of place we'd want to stay at." It's a perfect little oasis among a stretch of backpacker hostels--which are fine if you're 22 but maybe not ideal if you're a grownup. The villas are a perfect blend of modern... More

We have just stayed at Orto Lado for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nico and staff are extremely accommodating and able to assist you with anything you may need. Our villa was clean, comfortable and the outdoor area is a place of serenity. Wether lying by the pool, in your hammock or sitting in the lounge you always... More
