My wife and I were on our honey moon in Costa Rica, and we decided to stay at Otro Lado since it was close to the surf, and the reviews sounded great. When we arrived we were not disappointed! The couple who run the lodge are so nice and we felt right at home. The room we were in was... More

We were really grateful for how much the couple that owns Otro Lado helped us arrive safely and quickly and orient ourselves. We sent them a few questions via email before arriving and they responded within a few hours. They organized a taxi for us and over and over gave us great tips about things to do and how to... More

A comparison at the number of 5 star reviews against all other choices will quickly tell you that Otro Lado Lodge is a special place. For starters, the place is immaculately maintained. The rooms and cottages are beautifully designed and cozy. The grounds are taken care of on a daily basis. The pool setting is perfectly located and like everything... More

This was my second trip to Otro Lado, because it was so nice to visit the first time that I wanted to come back. The location is great. It is at the end of the local bus route and a two minute walk from the beach and great restaurants. It has an extraordinarily friendly feel within the open air restaurant.... More

Best choice in Santa Teresa. The rooms were large and bright. All windows had screens so you could use the fan and have the windows open, or air-conditioning when it was really hot. The property is gorgeous with lovely common areas. The owners were out of town, but left Francesca in charge. She was exceedingly helpful and friendly. -Logan/Andrew, Salt... More

My friends and I had the best experience at Otro Lado. The place is well laid out, landscaped very well, and the rooms were very clean and neat. Housekeeping was impressive and each room was a nice size, bathrooms were nice, and every room had a balcony. This place is totally cute. There was even a very refreshing pool. I... More

We stayed there for three nights and found it great. Everything was perfect. The place is almost new and beautifully designed. We loved the architecture. The garden, grounds and pool are all very nice. Our room was excellent with a nice balcony. WiFi internet worked well, unless there was a power outage. It wasn't not real fast though (as in... More
