The rooms are amazing with lots of space and kitchen facilities and a seating area and hammock outside we love it. The rooms... More

So nice and cosy. Own balcony and close to the beach. The room was equipped with a fridge, ac, fan, and two towels each, one for beach/pool and one for shower. Very good breakfast in the morning. Felt at home directly and we will definitly come back anytime soon!

We visited for five nights with our 8 month old daughter. The hotel is beautiful remind me of Bali with lot of nice flowers and trees. It is located a few minutes from the beach. The restaurant is very good , the staff very helpful and extremely nice. We loved the pool also. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Fantastic place to stay in Santa Teresa, right on the main strip but well designed so that you feel like you're away from the hustle and bustle. 2 minute walk to the beach! The breakfast was incredible, and the pool and amenities were well kept. Basic but clean unit which had everything we needed plus a bonus outdoor space (huge... More

We had such an amazing experience at Otro Lado. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and the hotels environment was perfect. Great location across from the beach and close to all shops and sodas. Would definitely stay here again. No complaints

We had a lovely time at Otro lado. The place is very beautiful and serene. The rooms and clean and pretty (but we really missed having more places to hang towels and wet clothes). The food is excellent and the staff and owners are super friendly and helpful. The pool is wonderful but blonde people be warned -the water will... More

Santa Teresa is such a great place to visit and Otro Lado is an excellent place to stay when you are there. It's relaxing, tranquil and very well kept. I thought it was very well priced especially if you stay for 7 days they give you 1 night free. We stayed in the Lodge which was more than enough room... More

We stayed here as part of Lucero Surf Retreat vacation (see other review for some serious fun) and were way impressed. We opted for the "Lodge" and we basically got a Suite with 1 upstairs bedroom and bath, and a downstairs area with two daybeds, full kitchen, super cool partially outdoor shower. The hotel is sort of toward the edge... More
